WARNING: HARSH WORDS AHEAD
I just watched Rosie O'Donnell on The O'Reilly Factor
. In fact I'm watching the program right now.
She talked about gay couples adopting children. The thing I found admirable about her was when she said that she only wanted the same criteria to be applied to gay couples when children are being placed. This agrees with my own views, since I believe that people should be judged equally no matter their religion, national origin, race or sexual orientation.
Even so I can't help hating that bitch. She stated in the past that all gun owners (like myself) should be jailed, simply for owning a firearm. Besides trying her best to demonize people (like myself) who think that a firearm is the best way to protect others, she actively campaigned to end private gun ownership while hiring armed guards to protect herself and her family. This proved that she was the worst kind of elitist, since she and hers were important enough to be protected while me and mine (or anyone else too poor to afford private protection) weren't worth the same consideration.
That was then, this is now.
In an attempt to be fair she DID say that she wasn't acting in her right mind. She said that she was reacting emotionally, "As a mother", when she saw the Columbine massacre. She also said that she has a problem with depression, and it was a bad time for her. So she went too far in stating her views but that it wasn't really her fault.
Fine. Whatever. Actions speak louder than words, though. She spent money and used her influence to try and make every average citizen helpless in the face of an armed attack. I want to see her do something other than cry a few mea culpas
. It's too much to ask her to host a fundraiser for the NRA, but she can do some good with her millions. She can start an organization that offers free self-defense courses for victims of violent crime, or even for anyone who asks.
After all, that's what I do and I'm not a millionaire.
