Your silence speaks volumes

If an average person sold automatic weapons to known drug cartels, notorious gang members, and assassins, federal law enforcements officials would be all over them with possible criminal charges, incarceration, and accomplice charges in the resulting crimes. Yet when that person is the attorney general of the United States, the media and our local Congresswoman let him off the hook? I have to bet that former Attorney General John Mtichell is currently turning over in his grave.

Can anyone hear anything but the sound of silence wafting its way out of the media mouthpiece of Lois Capps’ office? I thought that the last time of many, in which she “swore under oath” to “preserve and protect the Constitution,” that she may have actually meant it? I was always taught that not voicing your opinion in the face of such egregious things was simply the same as agreeing with them by voting with silence! So, is that what our honorable elected member of Congress is actually doing? Oh, I forgot. Let’s play her prerecorded message over again: “It’s all George Bush and the Republicans’ fault.” Doesn’t anyone else get tired of her blame game? I thought adults moved on beyond that after the 3rd grade?
