I sincerely hope that recent events in our nation’s capitol will wake up the American people. Most folks don’t realize how highly paid lobbyists for huge corporations control what happens in Congress. The defeat in the U.S. Senate of a reasonable gun safety bill, one that was backed by almost 90 percent of the American people, tells the story and is Exhibit “A” of how things work in Congress. The National Rifle Association (NRA), the powerful gun lobby, was able to kill this reasonable and badly needed legislation. It was reported that the NRA lobbyists kept “a scorecard” on how the senators voted. That’s a sad commentary on how weak some members of Congress truly are. Apparently, they would rather face the voters back home and try to explain their actions to them, rather than incur the wrath of the NRA.
A MONTHLY REMINDER
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, Who write misfortune, Which they have prescribed. To rob the needy of justice, And to take what is right from the poor of My people, That widows may be their prey, And that they may rob the fatherless.
The only title in our Democracy superior to that of President is the title of Citizen.
Louis Brandeis, 1937
U.S. Supreme Court Justice
