I&rsquo;m speaking of course, of &ldquo;bomb control.&rdquo; ,<br />\n If this horror has taught us anything, it&rsquo;s that we can no longer turn a blind eye to the availability of bombs and bomb-making materials in our society. We must finally face the truth that only by banning all forms of fertilizer, cleaning products and known chemicals can we truly be safe to live. Naturally we must disband our military as well. We must resist the call and the siren song of the world-wide &ldquo;Bomb Lobby.&rdquo; Whether we lead by example or stand alone, we must have the courage to forge a new path. Will you join me? &mdash; Polly Anna</p>\n<p> DEAR POLLY:<br />\n I&rsquo;m down for the struggle if you will also work to ban nails, broken glass, metal shards, pressure cookers, knives, cars,and rental trucks. (Said with tongue firmly in cheek.) Your email does expose the ridiculousness of the left&rsquo;s gun control argument and their heads in the sand attitude as they blame inanimate objects over the evil that sometimes emanates from the hearts of sick individuals.<br />\n Sadly, the reign of terror we witnessed in Austin didn&rsquo;t merit 24/7 coverage or town halls from CNN and the other liberal outlets because there were no guns involved. No guns = no liberal narrative = no media coverage. Although some pundits are already trying to paint the bomber as a white, Christian conservative to stir the pot. How about this people; let&rsquo;s don&rsquo;t make this political, until it&rsquo;s political?</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n President Trump and his representatives have stated on numerous occasions that the president is not going to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, yet Democrats and media continue to say he&rsquo;d better not fire him as if it&rsquo;s eminent. Why is this line being promoted if it&rsquo;s not true? &mdash;&nbsp;Tired in Tennessee<br />\n Dear Tired: I&rsquo;m sure President Trump would love to fire Robert Mueller and I don&rsquo;t blame him; however, he is politically astute enough to not pull that trigger. President Trump is a no-nonsense guy and this Russia collusion witch hunt is about as full of nonsense as anything I&rsquo;ve ever seen in Washington.<br />\n But don&rsquo;t listen to my opinion, here&rsquo;s what Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard law professor and former Hillary supporter had to say about the Mueller investigation during a FOX News interview.<br />\n &ldquo;First of all, the president is 100 percent right. There never should have been an appointment of special counsel and there was no probable cause that crimes were committed. I&rsquo;ve seen no credible evidence that crimes were committed by the president. The investigation should never have begun. The question is, how does he deal with it?&rdquo;<br />\n The &ldquo;fire Mueller&rdquo; narrative is just another Democrat ploy to keep the president&rsquo;s waters muddy and the party&rsquo;s base fired up</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n The media, the left and some Republicans are going crazy that President Trump congratulated Vladimir Putin on his reelection. Granted, Putin is a murderous former KGB agent who rigged his own reelection and is hellbent on world domination but what&rsquo;s the big deal ... really? &mdash; Get A Grip<br />\n Dear Grip:<br />\n President Trump&rsquo;s congratulatory message to Putin has more liberal panties in a wad than a cheap washing machine. As distasteful as this is, the United States must have some semblance of a relationship with Russia. This was nothing more than a throwaway line from President Trump but once again the media and liberal talking heads are looking for more ways to bolster their Russian collusion narrative.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n I&rsquo;m troubled by these media stories about President Trump and his alleged dalliances with porn stars and Playboy models. I firmly believe that where there&rsquo;s smoke, there&rsquo;s fire and there&rsquo;s an awful lot of smoke. I didn&rsquo;t support Donald Trump because I was afraid he had closet full of skeletons and I prefer my presidents to be a lot cleaner. As a conservative and a Christian, how do you reconcile your support for a president with such moral failings? &mdash; Concerned Christian in Collin County<br />\n Dear Concerned:<br />\n Simple, I compared Donald Trump&rsquo;s moral failings to Hillary Clinton&rsquo;s and Trump came out looking like a choir boy.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
