They’re counting on us.Posted: June 14, 2016
They’re counting on us moving on from this one. Like we moved on from Aurora, Newtown, San Bernadino, etc.
They’re counting on our short attention span.
They’re counting on us being distracted by bright shiny objects. Donald Trump’s latest belch, or Kim Kardashian’s latest thong, or Justin Bieber’s latest DUI.
And you know what? They’re probably right. We’ll move on from this one and glide along till the next one. Then we’ll become outraged again until the next bright shiny object. Lather, rinse, repeat.
They think they’ve won. And so far, they’re winning. But they don’t have to win and we don’t have to lose.
At some point, people will get mad enough to tell the NRA and their Congressional suckups to fuck off and go away.
Will it be this time? Too soon to tell. But: it will happen.
I hope we don’t have too many more of these before….
Oooh! Bright shiny object!
