Peace to you and your family. - Whatmakesensejohn<br />\n Dear Whatmakesensejohn:&nbsp; There you go trying to make a reasonable argument by putting gun deaths in perspective and we can&rsquo;t have that in today&rsquo;s politics.&nbsp; To those who may not be familiar with the term &ldquo;virtue signaling,&rdquo; according to Urban Dictionary it means to take a conspicuous but essentially useless action, ostensibly to support a good cause but actually to show off how much more moral you are than everybody else.<br />\n Liberals virtue signal more than they use a turn signal whether it&rsquo;s wearing a vagina hat, a lapel ribbon, or driving a Tesla. Celebrities are the worst as they will attend a climate change conference sipping wine through a paper straw when the cameras are rolling but then jet off in their private Gulfstreams when no one is watching.<br />\n Because of the broad media and entertainment industry support, liberals are able to make a disproportionate amount of noise in promoting their &ldquo;causes&rdquo; and subsequently many businesses cave to their nonsense. The overall result is a form of tyranny of the minority. Sadly we can add Walmart to that list<br />\n Speaking of noise, at one point I thought liberal screams hit the highest ear-piercing decibel level with the gun issue. But upon further review, I realized the pro-life movement, border enforcement, tax cuts, supreme court openings, global warming, and President Trump&rsquo;s tweets all caused liberals to shriek at pitches somewhere between jet engines and&nbsp; Howitzers. The irony is that reasonable people have turned a deaf ear to their complaints.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution declaring the NRA a &ldquo;domestic terrorist organization.&rdquo; How disgusting to label over 5 million Americans as terrorists. As best I can tell there has not been a single NRA member that has ever committed a mass shooting. How do these people get away with these stunts? &ndash; Liberty Valerie<br />\n Dear Liberty: Please see the above email on virtue signaling and you&rsquo;ll discover that this is a textbook example. The resolution says&nbsp;the U.S. is &ldquo;plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,&rdquo; and accuses the NRA of using &ldquo;its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.&rdquo;<br />\n The resolution is laughable because most liberals don&rsquo;t know the difference between an assault rifle and a saltshaker. The supervisors proved their political bias and malfeasance by the resolution itself. Since when has the NRA tried to incite gun violence? But of course, in true liberal fashion, there were no formal hearings to allow the NRA to address these outrageous charges.<br />\n I would love to have seen Dana Loesch standing before the board and crushing them and their ridiculous emotional responses. Loesch could explain how the PLO, IRA, ISIS, Taliban, are actual terrorist organizations while the NRA is made up of over 5 million law abiding citizens who love the United States Constitution.<br />\n Even the Board of Supervisors admit that their resolution is meaningless, however they can go back to their wine bars and coffee shops and have their backs patted by man bun wearing academics and Bernie and Warren supporters. But if you think any red-blooded American NRA members give a rat&rsquo;s butt about what a bunch of San Francisco snowflakes think, then you&rsquo;ve never met an NRA member.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:&nbsp; Did we learn anything from the CNN Democrat presidential candidate forum on climate change? &ndash; Polar Berry<br />\n Dear Polar: Yes &ndash; hold onto your wallets as all of the Democrat&rsquo;s farcical plans involve taking trillions of your dollars. But to sum it up, Democrats want to take away your meat, cars, oil, coal, plastic straws, shopping bags, nuclear power, your kids &shy;&mdash; yes I said your kids &mdash; as Bernie Sanders is promoting abortion to combat climate change internationally.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to mark <a href=\"mailto:levy92@aol.com\">levy92@aol.com</a>.</p>\n', created = 1574088291, expire = 1574174691, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:bded16963d9944bf0ee82f108b4d9c7f' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
