'Awaiting to Exhale' - The Politicus

Some of you may disagree, but the idea that the United States Constitution is not a living, breathing document is absurd. Were it not imbued with the capacity for expanding its judicial lungs, America would have suffocated on the choking fluids of its’ past injustices. If the Constitution were not breathing, I would still be gasping for breath from my undersized so-called 3/5ths of a human being’s lungs. [ 535 more words ]

If you are going to write a piece on mental health hospitals, the lack of beds, the loss of funding, etc., you must not neglect to mention O'Connor v Donaldson, 1975 and the debacle that ensued. I'm not surprised that you would attempt to hang this around the necks of the GOP. You are partizan and I get that. What I don't get is that you do not tell the truth and you lay blame at the feet of the wrong people. Do some research on how and why mental health is non-existent and how we got to the point in this present day where you can walk down any large city street and come across the mentally ill, ranting, contorting themselves, filthy, often barefoot and in ragged clothes, picking through trash bins and pushing shopping carts filled with detritus. They're not on the street fending for themselves because of conservatives, libertarians or constitutionalists. The Burger Supreme Court created what you're lamenting in your opinion piece. The Congress then acted on that woeful decision and threw thousands on the streets, a very un-Christian like, inhumane gesture to people that really are unable to care for themselves.
How much bloodshed is needed until it is time to talk about gun Control, I know that millions of dollars were given by the NRA to trumps campaign but how many deaths would it take for change to begin, can you give us a number as this will happen again and again until we as a society change, guns have been around for hundreds of years and I never remember hearing about mass murder in that time. The second Amendment was never meant that citizens have semi and automatic guns it was put into the constitution to allow for the bearing of arms for protection and hunting. The only people who should ever have these kind of guns or Soldiers and LEO, there's no reason for anyone to own guns like what was found at the Hotel and at his home, these are guns of war not protection of your home and family. Society has to decide if they want to live in a Country where no actions are taken only more Political BS, or we have to change our society and start putting pressure on those who fight it like the NRA and Trump.
Let's hope the majority of republicans choose to have a conscience this time. Fix the ACA, and help your constituents like you were elected to do. Stop trying to trash Obama. He's no longer in office!
