I think obesity related deaths need to end immediately!

I was at an Angels game a few years ago, the lady in front of me whipped out a sealed pack of mini brownie cups from Costco, opened it up, dumped an entire Ruby's shake on it, and went to town eating the whole thing.  I damn near threw up.  

 

In the US people can own a redonkulous gun meant for war, have abortions, and I can't legally sports bet or play poker online.  WTF!

Here is the thing.  People can decide not to eat fatty food and be healthy.  They can't decide not to get shot by a wacko with a gun.

 

And the whole "guns deter crime" is one of the dumbest arguments I have heard.  Look at the shootings on military bases.  If they can't defend themselves on a heavily armed military base, then arming school teachers and housewives certainly isn't going to stop it.

People don't decide to get killed by a loser DUI driver either. 

 

Here is the thing for me.  There are plenty of things we could do to be safer.  I just don't think the freedoms we would give up are worth it.  Being in a free society has its risks.

Which brings me to my next point: Nets down the base lines at ballgames.

Would love to watch you tell the parents of the 22 kindergartners that were killed by a mentally ill man that was allowed access to an assault rifle that these are just the risks they endure for a free society.

 

No right is more important than the one to live.

I would love for you to tell the parents of a child who was killed by a drunk driver that your right to drink booze is more important than their child's life.

I would gladly ban alcohol if it meant guns were banned.
