Republican Fools

There are two ideas popular with Republicans that strike me as entirely disconnected from reality.

One is the idea that people of wealth are job creators. Maybe that once was true but it certainly has not been at all true for many years now. The rich are richer than ever but the middle class and the poor are worse off than in years. It makes absolutely no sense to continue the old argument: the rich are no longer job creators.

The second is that we need more guns in more hands in order to be more safe. The United States has more guns per capita than any nation on earth. If the NRA’s argument were true, we would be the safest nation on the planet. We’re not and they’re wrong. It really is that simple.
