“The Folded Flag” Why Respecting The National Anthem Matters….. by, Michael Hawke

“This Flag Is Presented On Behalf Of A Grateful Nation In Appreciation For The Honorable Service Rendered By Your Loved One…. (name of fallen hero). 

At the end of the Military Funeral Service the American Flag covering the coffin is attended to by a military team whose duty is to remove and fold the Flag into an exact, tight, triangle. Once folded it is formally handed to the attending Senior Officer, or Military Chaplain, for presentation to the family. This most solomn military ceremony has been repeated millions of times, for over for two hundered years, to honor our country’s bravest and best….our fallen military heroes.

Surgery Update:  I have been recovering from double level back fusion surgeries which I had done at UCSD Medical Center under the VA Choice Program. The surgeries were much rougher than I imagined they would be. The recovery, 65 days now, has been difficult. I am told by the doctors it will take four or five months to fully recover. It has been a slow two months where it seems like I have barely improved.

Feeding The Birds….and Mrs. Shonegarger:  I feed the birds outside my back deck every morning. They are mostly black crows, but occassionally I get smaller birds like wrens and sparrows. These little birds wait until the crows have taken their fill and flown away, after which they swoop in for the meager scraps that were left behind.

Our two cats, Yogi and Boo Boo, love sitting on the upper back deck watching the large crows feeding on the hillside 20 feet below. The crows caww loudly as they swoop in and take a bread or cracker morsel that I throw to them. I find this time very peaceful as I sit drinking my morning coffee and watching my cats react to these hungry birds.

I grew up on Rollins Road in Toledo, Ohio. Rollins Road was a wonderful place to be a kid. My best friend Larry had four brothers and sisters. His dad was a mailman and his mom, like most moms back then, was a home maker. She also was feeder of birds. I remember seeing her save toast and bread and in the mornings throw it off her back porch to the birds. I never gave it thought back then as a kid but as I daily throw morsels of bread to the birds in my neighborhood I often think of Goldie Shonebarger.  I can see her throwing bread and toast, taking the time to take care of God’s birds.

Oxycodone Drugs – Evil Disguised As Good: My back fusion surgery was actually two surgeries five days apart. The first sugery they went in from the front which involved a vascular surgeon as well as the spine surgeon. Then, five days later I was in the operating room again. This time they went in from the back and installed rods and a cage. In the process they nicked my spinal column causing a leak of fluid which led to the doctors needing to repair it before completing the surgery. I was in the operating room for seveal hours.

Since the surgeries I have been taking Oxycodone for pain. I started out with 5mgs every four hours. I took this amount for over a month before realizing I needed to get off it. The longer you use this drug the more you need it. I would get sick with body pain, nausea, and weakness after three hours. As time went on and my body got used to it I would start getting sick after two hours. I was hooked in a week and had I not made up my mind to get off it I would be in a bad place right now.

Thankfully I have weaned myself down to just five 5mg pills every 24 hours. My goal is to be off it completely by the end of November. Even with these low doses and spread out times my body screams for this drug. I am sick as a dog at times as I attempt to hold off from taking the pill sooner than the six hour interval. So on top of trying to deal with the recovery I have had to deal with this drug grabbing me by my soul. I do get almost immediate relief when I take the drug but it is short lived. The sad thing is the doctors give you no insight into how to manage this medicine. Had I not been aware and determined to beat it I would probably be another statistic by now.

“The Folded Flag” Why Respecting The National Anthem Matters….. by, Michael Hawke


“This Flag Is Presented On Behalf Of A Grateful Nation In Appreciation For The Honorable Service Rendered By Your Loved One…. (name of fallen hero). 

At the end of the Military Funeral Service the American Flag covering the coffin is attended to by a military team whose duty is to remove and fold the Flag into an exact, tight, triangle. Once folded it is formally handed to the attending Senior Officer, or Military Chaplain, for presentation to the family. This most solomn military ceremony has been repeated millions of times, for over for two hundered years, to honor our country’s bravest and best….our fallen military heroes.

When the folded American Flag is presented to the family of a former servicemember who has lived a long life after serving his or her country it is a symbol of hope and pride for the family. They are recalling their loved one with the knowledge that he or she served the nation and often times did so in time of war. They are grateful for the receiving of the folded American Flag. It is treasured as a memory of their loved ones life and service to his or her nation.

When the folded American Flag is presented to the family of a military member who has fallen in war, or during the service of his or her country, it is also a symbol of hope and pride….but it is so much more.  The receiving of the folded American Flag in these services is crushing…it hurts…it passes from the Officer to the family member with an importance that no one can imagine unless they are receiving it in this way. The familly member clutches it with a tightness that is almost audible. The American Flag they just received was on their servicmembers coffin from the battlefield to the home front, and now to the cemetery, their loved one’s final resting place. They leave the service not with their loved one….but with the “Folded American Flag” , a physical symbol of the bravery and sacrifice of their fallen hero for the freedom and safety of all Americans. 

“The National Anthem NFL Player Protests Are An Affront To Most Americans, Veterans, And The Families Of Our Fallen Heroes” :

I am tempted to take the arguments being made to support the National Anthem protests and counter them one by one in this article. The arguments made by these players; they are doing a peaceful protest, it is not meant to disrespect the flag, it is a matter of free speech to do so, it is about police brutality and racism, it is about opportunities for minorities who are limited due to so called white privilege, are all shallow at best, and outright wrong at worst.  Rather, I will respond to these arguments in another piece, at a later time.

All Nations Have National Anthems:  During the Olympics when Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners stand on the podium, before the entire world, to receive their medals the National Anthem of the Gold Medal winner is played for all to hear and recognize.  The playing of the winning country’s anthem is a sign of respect and acknowledges all the good and honorable things of that nation. No one hearing the German, Russian, or Chinese anthems thinks about the negatives, both past and present, of those nations. Rather, we think of the atheletes and the hope for peace and prosperity for all in the future.  Likewise our Star Spangled Banner, when played before a game or event, represents our positives as a nation. It is not about a “perfect nation”, but rather a nation that is good and will become even better. It is about gratitude and hope.

Dignity, Decorum, Responsibility:  There is a time and place to protest. Jim Brown, Hall of Fame running back from the Cleveland Browns, who spent most of his post NFL career fighting for social justice and change had this to say on the knee takers;  he states he respects their right to do what they want but his preference is for them to stand during the Star Spangled Banner….

“I’ll never kneel, and I will always respect the Flag”.

Jim Brown was one of the best running backs of all time, an African American who never made the mega millions in salaries and endorsements of today’s players.  He grew up in the pre-civil rights era and knew prejudice and injustice first hand.

Jim Brown has always worked for equality and justice for minorities.  Today he is 82 years old and still actively working for social justice and change. Yet Jim Brown respects the National Anthem. Our Star Spangled Banner stands for the best of America’s past and present, and the hope for a postive future for all.  Jim Brown also knows that “Dignity and Decorum” matter.  He realizes that as a player, and former player, he is a role model which translates into a “Responsibility” toward his fans, both young and old alike.

Every American Should Attend A Military Funeral:  I suggest the next time a fallen hero is honored these protesting players attend the funeral.  After seeing the Flag being taken from the coffin, folded, and then given to the Senior Officer for presentation to the family member of the fallen hero, they will no longer protest during our National Anthem.  They will have understood the importance of dignity, decorum, and responsibility, and will take their protest to another time and a better place. They will understand why Jim Brown said…

“I’ll never kneel…and I will always respect the Flag”.

Summer Heat:  August 6th….humans across the planet are roasting. The heat shows no sign of letting up…in fact it is worsening. San Diego is nice along the coast but yesterday afternoon the ocean water temp was 75 degrees, way too warm. Jerry Coleman predicted this…only thing is he called it the normal cycles of the planet. Al Gore predicted this…and he called it man made. You decide….maybe both are happening at once??

The California Homeless and the Governor Browns “fake train”: I used to like Jerry Brown. He went to Cal and so did I. He was leaning toward the ministry and so was I. He spoke his mind and so did I. I thought we had things in common but he changed. I changed too. He recently suckered Californians to approve a 32 billion dollar bond to fund a bullet train from Sacramento to LA.  Four years later the 32 billion is gone….no train, no tracks, and not even a few bullets for the effort. Meanwhile last night 47,000 homeless people slept on the streets of Los Angeles. Democrat waste…..we could have solved the homeless problem with those billions….just thinking.

Lobbyists: I met a lobbyist from Kansas City yesterday. She has her own small lobby firm. She is a dedicated democrat, an eager lobbyist. Lobbying is big business…big money.  Very nice young woman, very smart, very deluded about POTUS….and about the fact the entire lobby system is corruption legalized. The worst lobbist of late is General Flynn. Retired Generals have no business representing foreign governmets to our Senators and Representatives. Shame on General Flynn….not to mention the fact the Turkish government is tyranical,evil, and anti western values. “Core Values” Sir?

California Burning: The California fires are out of control and growing. The heat and winds are not letting up. California has just been given Federal funding declaring it a state of emergency. So far not too many structure lost. Pray for our brave firefighters and pray for rain.

The Many Doors Of The Immigration Mess…..by, Michael Hawke

Publish “The Immigration Manual” For All Americans To Read: They can put it out in an “Immigration For Dummies” format since that is what most members of Congress think the American people are….dummies. The average American Citizen does not know what the rules are for a foreign person wanting to immigrate legally to our country. Publish them.

The Student Visa Door: How does a student from China, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, India or elsewhere end up in our community college, living in a condo paid by their government…..then they  transfer to a four year school….. later they get an internship from an American based company….. then a work visa….. and then what do you know…a green card???

I want to know the rules here. Millions of kids from wealthy families of other nations are entering our country on student visas and they never leave. Many end up in the tech industry and what do you know….we have had major stealing of our technology and intellectual property.

President Trump says…. “China has been stealing our intellectual property and it must stop”! Really? We are letting these foreign students walk right in to our higher education institutions and companies and essentially handing the intellectual property over to many of them. There are so many student visas issued for all kinds of schools in our country that the numbers of annual immigrants is in the millions.  Do these student visas, when tranferred to work visas, count in our nations numbers on immigration? So many unknowns here.  What are the rules? Most Americans want to know!

The Buy A Real Estate Property Door: Most Americans do not know a rich foreigner can buy a house for over $500,000.00 and get a visa which usually ends up in a green card. And not just green cards for the buyer…. but for his family and relatives who may come to live in the house. These rich foreign buyers are inflating our real estate markets in the major cities, and gaining back door immigration status. President Trump says….“I am for merit based immigraton”.  Really? What are the rules here. Most Americans want to know!

The Start A Business And Employ 14 Workers Door:  Have you wondered why there are so many massage parlors everywhere? This door is the reason. Start up a buisness, employ 14 workers, and you get a free pass to a visa. Then bring in your relatives…14 at least….to run the business and you get more visas. Merit based immigration all the way Mr. President. What are the rules?  Most Americans want to know!

The Foreign Tech Worker “H1-B Visa” Door:  This door is related to the education door but it involves a foreign tech worker getting a special visa to come to America and work because supposedly our education system is not producing eneough computer and engineer related graduates. This door is based on a lie…but the door is there and used by companies, many of them foreign based, who want to being their own workers in to keep the wages lower. This door is complex and mysterioius and no one knows how it really works. What are the rules? Most Americans want to know!

The Sneak Across The Back Fence Door:  This door has been used for over 100 years. Yes, it is the illegal immigrant crossings of our Southern border. The politicans like to focus on this door. It is the ….. “look over here….. why we let in all numbers of people, under all kinds of special rules….. over there”.

This door can be fixed this year. Yes, President Trump’s wall is needed. It is needed not just so we can own our back fence and prevent all kinds of untold crossings into the country…drugs, coyotess, child sex trade, terrorist, and just half of the population of Mexico and Central American wanting an opportunity to be free and safe. We know the rules for this door but the politicans like to move it around, play with it, and pretend they too want the door locked. This problem has been highlighted by the recent family separation law that resulted in a recent Executive order by President Trump. No need to get into the weeds on this. The American people want his door controlled. We are compassionate, graciouis, and kind…but this door has been free wheeling way to long.

Build the wall, start a work visa program at the border like we do with the rich kids we let in to attend our schools colleges, and universites. Call it an “M1-B worker visa program”. I think we know how to do it.  Most Americans want this mess fixed. And yes, the democrats are obstrucing for political gain…so much compassion! “bah hum bug”!

The Amnesty Door:  This door has been around since President Carter’s time in the White House.  Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush the First, Clinton, Bush the Second, and Obama all allowed this door to work for immigrants. It is realted to the Back Fence door above….sneak in, work, raise a family, be a good citizen (although illegal) and the compassion of the American people will give you a free pass and a green card. Kind of earned in a way, but still illegal. President Trump wants to grant amnesty to over 1.6 milliion Daca illegals and others if the Democrats will support his building a wall and enhancing security on the southern border. Presidnet Trump shows his reasoable side as well as his compassion toward these illegal immigrants. The democrats play politics and obstruct, and….. once again show their compassion. So bad….so bad. The American people get this one. Lets fix the border and write a better law.

“Everybody Knows….”  Leonard Cohen’s famous song… “everybody knows”….applies to the  border immigration mess. Everybody knows the border immigration mess could be fixed this year if the democrats would work with President Trump….everybody knows!

The Philadelphia Eagles Fumbled The NFL Ratings Ball….by, Michael Hawke

President Trump often says….”we will see what happens”… when asked about how things will work out on any particular issue. We now know what will happen regarding the NFL ratings. They will continue to plumet to the point that they will lose many fans for good. I, for one, am gone this season. I watched college football last season and will do the same this year. The NFL’s rich spoiled players killed it for me.

The Philadelphia Eagles informed the White House they will not be bringing the entire team to the traditional White House Recognition of the Super Bowl Champions. Then they requested the event be rescheduled during the week that President Trump will be out of the country attending the Korean Peace Summit in Singapore. The Eagles stated over 1000 fans have already planned to attend the coming Friday event, but while most of the players would be in Washington that weekend, only a handful of would come to the White House celebration honoring them as Super Bowl victors. President Trump decided since the majority of the players would not be coming they would hold a Patriotic performance for the fans and those in attendance. The Marine Band and others groups would perform, honoring our military and our country.

Facts on team victory visits missing… The champions of the World Series, the Super Bowl, and the NBA have traditionaly been honored by Presidents at the White House for many years. It is a tradition that says we are one, we celebrate our best atheletes and their great accomplishment. It has always been a postive event.

Players standing for the National Anthem to start the game also has always symolized a unity of our best and the tremendous positive impact sports has on our nation and on our youth in particular. It brings us together no matter our pollitical, economic, or social differences. Taking a knee during the anthem distracts from this positive and unifying moment prior to the start of the game.

The NFL players fail to understand they are not in sync with most of the fans… The players are now running things in the NFL. It is clear that a small number of players and owners are thumbing their very rich noses at the facts about the knee taking and stepping up the ante. Lets be perfectly honest… the fans, who are offended by these so called ” it’s not about the anthem” knee takers, do not buy these acts of kneeling are about respect for free speach and protection of those abused by police.

To the players I say get your heads on straight. The common fan knows an idiotic statement when they hear it….and your free speech claims are pure idiocy. Fans know players can stand for the anthem at the start of the game and do their issue statements in other venues. Otherwise, the knee taking is about the anthem and only about the anthem. It offends those who respect and love our country with all of its great strengths and….yes flaws. People are not dumb, fans are not dumb, but you players, who are mostly all college educated and making millions…must certainly be dumb!

Recent NFL rules changes are too little too late: Would “pathetic” be the correct descriptive word for the NFL trying to stop the ratings cliff fall….well, there are better words but not suitable for print here in this piece…so yes,“pathetic” ! The NFL has stated their new rules will require players who wish to kneel during the anthem to remain in the locker room until after the playing of it. If players who choose to be on the field kneel there will be punishments and fines to both the players and the teams.

Several owners have already declared they will not fine players for exercising “free speech” and they will also pay any NFL fines the players incur. Well it sounds like the NFL fixed this problem, eh? Idiots all. Free speech is not the issue here. Last I checked…if a company has a training event the sales staff must attend and some decide to take a knee about the police shooting issue during the training, they suffer consequences….likely they get the boot.  This is about rules, following rules, doing what your boss or company tells you and being part of the big picture…so simple. If a player kneels during the anthem before the game and tells me he was praying to the Blessed Virgin Mary and not protesting the flag and all it represents, all I think is he thinks I am a dummy. Fans are not dummies…they get it.

The NFL’s last chance….and best move: When it comes to representing a team, and a so called non-profit (a topic for a later piece) like the National Football League, players are a mere cog in the wheel. They do not have free speech rights when it comes to doing what they are paid to do for their employer on game day. The NFL players make up less than 10% of the college players who finish college each year desperatly hoping for an NFL chance. The NFL choice to save their product and their billions of profits is to fire the players who do not follow the rules. There are 100 guys waiting in line for that knee taker’s job and given the chance many would end up being better than the guy they fired. Fans do not revere these players, they used to, but they don’t any more.  The average fan attends games or watches on TV to support his or her team. It is a recreation thing, an escape from the every day grind of work. There are other things these fans can do on game day….and most take way less time and money than watching an NFL game.

To the Commissoner and the very rich owners… May I remind you it is not 1980, 1990, or even 2010? Times have changed and people have many choices to spend both their time and money on when it comes to recreation. The major league sports teams no longer have a corner on the fan’s money and time. Play it smart boys, start acting like the businessmen and women you are. No player should be permitted to hijack your profits and success over a personal protest during the National Anthem on game day, especially when it attacks the values and traditions most all of us treasure and love.  The fans simply won’t “buy” it. 



The Daily Mix…. by, Michael Hawke

School Shootings:  The recent school shooting in Texas is another senseless tragedy. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the families and those affected by this evil act. The need here is for school districts and communitities to begin to decipher the common threads in all of these shootings. The guns are there yes, but what are the triggers and other things that cause these kids to get a gun and commit these evil acts? We need to look beyond the guns and we may begin to start to understand how we can prevent more tragedies in the future.

Video Games…A Troubing Causal Ingredient Ignored:  The educators, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and the government must stop ignoring the clear link between violent video games and school shootings. Where do kids with problems go to escape from the bullying, stress, and pain? They turn to their games. The video games our current middle and high school kids are playing are “virtual”, which is to say life like, and often involve team playing with complete strangers. You may think your kid is playing a harmless game but in reality he or she may be on line with adults who are using vulgarity, promoting hate, and getting inside the heart and soul of the player.

It is a travesty that for the past few years this issue has not been raised in the public square. New organizations, often linked corporatly to the gaming industry, do not speak about this catalyst when their anchors solemnly talk about a school shooting on in their newscast. Like pot of the current day, video games are not what they were when we were kids. They are potent, addicting, and a threat to the mental and physical health of any young person using them.

Love Is A Great Joy To Have:  There is a secret that most do not understand, even though they experiece it at times throughout their lives. The common perception is that to have the joy of love….one must be loved.  The exact opposite is the case…to find the true joy of love…. one must love! To give love is the greatest freedom a human being can experience. It brings one closest to the Spiritual truth and allows for a peace that we all seek in life. So if you seek true joy….start loving.

True Love: ” Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly;  it does not speak it’s own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails….”  I Cor.13: 4-8

Tim Tebow: We are all rooting for Tim Tebow to be promoted from AA ball to AAA ball in the Mets organization. He is tearing the cover off the ball and do not be surprised if you see him in right field for the Mets before the end of this season. Go Tebow!

Travis Jankowski: Speaking of right fielders Travis Jankowski it killing it for the San Diego Padres. He is batting 360 as a lead off hitter, is a gold glove outfielder, and steals bases like takinig candy from a baby. Nice to see this kid excel…now we will probably watch the Padres trade him, which is what they normally do with their best players. Go Travis!

The Federal Bureau of Investigation: The scandal is not with the Trump collusion but with the FBI colluding with the Clinton campaign. FBI….investigate yourself, do your job, stop the Mueler deflection of attention. So sad to see what really took plalce. Mueller, Comey, and all the rest of that leadership group should be indicted!



The Daily Mix……By, Michael Hawke

San Diego Padres:  As a loyal fan I am done waiting. The promise of future success with investing in the “youth movement” is the equivalent of the political promises made to us  that the budget will soon be balanced….patience is all we need. Lies, lies, and more damned lies. The Padres gave away so many young, very good, players in the past ten years it is stunning to think of the World Series opportunities lost. This year we pay Chase Headly 13 million…he is a pinch hitter batting 138. We sent Travis Jankowski to El Paso and replaced him with players who cannot play defense and who hit no better. With a team that cannot score runs getting rid of a very good defensive outfielder who is also an awesome base stealer might be called… plain dumb. The future…bah humbug…the future is now. Fire the kid manager, Andy Green, and bring us a manager who knows how to lead.

The Federal Bureau of Intimidation:  The raids on the President’s lawyer’s offices is the kind of thing that happens in police states, and is far afield from the rule of law. The FBI has been going after President Trump from day one. The stark difference between how the alleged Trump collusion has been investigated and how the Hillary Clinton “matter” was “non” investigated by the FBI is nothing less than stunning. The American people no longer pay attention and one day they will lose much more than they know. The Special Counsel is off the rails, not investigating a crime but searching for anything in order to stop President Trump. There was no collusion….by Pesident Trump. The collusion has been between the Obama administration Department of Justsice, the Clintons, the FBI,and the Special Counsel.

The Mid Term Election “Only One Issue”: There is only one thing that should determine the mid-term elections. Do voters want Presidnet Donald Trump to continue to improve their economic lives or do they want to stop him from succeeding?  If Republicans are smart they will run on President Trump’s coat tails. We finally have a President who does what he promises to do, and who supports American families and workers. Did I mention he also has given us a tax cut that we should have had years ago, ended unfair trade deals kept in place by previous Presidents, and destroyed ISIS to name but a few things accomplished? This election should be a slam dunk for the Republicans…. if they are smart about it….but given their propensity for self destructive idiocy it is maybe a 50/50 deal.

Run Mode: Our two, nine month old, twin tabbys go into “run mode” two or three times each day. It is so fun to watch them chase each other as they are clearly tuning up their preditor and defensive instincts. Yogi and Boo Boo leap over chairs, climb the blinds, and dash at break neck speeds throug the house for about twenty minutes. They chase each other taking turns being the preditor. I think the by product of this training time is they “get it out of their systems”, whatever “it” is for a cat. I might suggest this for humans as they seem to be having a total blast. I think I will start chasing Eva all over the house twice a day….on second thought a very bad idea…. maybe I will just go clean the bathrooms. Got to get “it” out of my system.







He Has Risen; He Is Not Here! The Real Meaning Of Easter….. by, Michael Hawke

The Ressurection Account  (Mark: 16. 1-19)

And when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices that they might come and anoint Him. And very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the enterance of tomb?”

And looking up they saw that the stone had been rolled awasy, although it was extremely large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man at the right, wearing a white robe; and they were amazed.

And he said to them, “Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.”

“But go tell his disciples and Peter, He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He said to you.” And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

Now after He had risen on the first day of the week, He first appeared to Mary Magdalne, from whom He had cast out seven demons. She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping. And when they heard that He was alive, and had been seen by her, they refused to believe it.

And after that He appeared in a different form to two of them, while they were walking on their way to the country. And they went away and reported it to the others and they did not believe them either.

And afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves while they were reclining at table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen. And He said to them,

Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.  He who has believed and has  been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpants, and if they drink and deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.”  

And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.



School Shootings: Ban Games Not Guns…….by, Michael Hawke

The Pomorski Report

The idea that young people who bring guns to school and do evil deeds is the result of our first amendment rights to own guns is profoundly simplistic and plain wrong. The left, to include the media, school administrations, Hollywood stars, and anti NRA groups immediately jump on the opportunity to push for gun control after one of these terrible shootings. There is little logic in their arguments that banning a particular non semi automatic gun, or eliminating second ammedment rights will prevent future school shootings.

Honesty is needed if we want to stop school shootings. They do not happen in a vacuum. There are almost always tell tale signs and indications if people are paying attention to troubled young students. Hollywood liberals who seize on this issue with the same tenaciousness as a dog grabbing a bone seek to appear both compassionite and our all knowing guides.  Their hypocracy…
