Yes, yes … Filosofa is still snarking and ranting … there is just so much wrong in this world, every bit of which could be so easily fixed with just the three ‘C’s – common sense, compassion, cooperation. I did have more snippets than just these two short ones, but … I’m out of time, so I shall save them for later or tomorrow! Gives you something to look forward to, eh?
Cosa Nostra rides again?
William Braddock is a Republican candidate from Florida who is hoping to be elected to fill the seat currently held by Democrat Charlie Crist, who is resigning to run for governor to (hopefully) replace the ignoble Ron DeSantis next year. William Braddock is short on name recognition, but one thing he has plenty of is audacity.
Also running in that same GOP primary race is Anna Paulina Luna, an Air Force veteran who went on to become a conservative activist and won a crowded GOP primary in the state’s 13th Congressional District last year but lost the general election to Crist.
Apparently, Mr. Braddock has a unique plan for winning the Republican nomination next fall … kill off Ms. Luna! Yes, you heard me right! During a 30-minute call with a conservative activist, Braddock is heard saying the following …
“I really don’t want to have to end anybody’s life for the good of the people of the United States of America. That will break my heart. But if it needs to be done, it needs to be done. Luna is a f—ing speed bump in the road. She’s a dead squirrel you run over every day when you leave the neighborhood.”
And later in the conversation …
“I have access to a hit squad, too, Ukrainians and Russians. Don’t get caught out in public supporting Luna. … Luna’s gonna go down and I hope it’s by herself.”
And still more …
“My polling people are going to charge me $20,000 to do a poll right before the primary. And if the poll says Luna’s gonna win, she’s gonna be gone. She’s gonna disappear. For the good of our country, we have to sacrifice the few. … For the better or the good of the majority of the people, we’ve got to sacrifice the few.”
My jaw dropped when I read this. WHO THE HELL talks like that and hopes to win a seat to the U.S. Congress??? Does he fancy himself Don Corleone? If so, he’s watched The Godfather a few too many times! Even the mob don’t talk like that, especially in a phone call where they may be recorded!
This jackass belongs either in a mental institution or a prison cell, but definitely NOT in the U.S. House of Representatives! Until reading this, I didn’t think it was possible to sink any lower than the likes of Margie Greene and Matt Gaetz, but obviously I was wrong!
DESTROY THE DAMN GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!
We’ve got another mass shooting here in the U.S., this time in Chicago. I could give you the details, but you likely already know them, and … if you don’t, you can just Google “latest mass shooting”. But, I will tell you that four human beings, people minding their own business, people who were husbands, wives, parents … are now dead, thanks to the gun culture in the not-so-United States. Yesterday, I decided to check the local news for my own area, Cincinnati, Ohio. I don’t often read the local news, but about once a week I try to catch up.
A few days ago, in a suburb a few miles from where I live, a little 6-year-old boy left his bicycle in a neighbor’s yard. When he went back to retrieve it a while later, the neighbor shot him. The little boy will be okay, the shot went straight through his arm, but WHO THE HELL SHOOTS A KID for nothing more than leaving his bike in their yard?????????
And on Sunday night, in another subdivision that is just a few miles from where I live, two children – a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old – were shot, as well as two teenagers. Both of the younger children, last I heard, were in critical condition, while the teens suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Again, the details are irrelevant, but what is relevant is that 4 young lives were nearly snuffed out, two may yet die, and FOR WHAT????
DESTROY THE DAMN GUNS, PEOPLE!!! I’M SICK AND DAMN TIRED OF PEOPLE DYING BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE THINK THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO OWN A KILLING MACHINE. THEY DON’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
