Contrary to your beliefs, the American People suffered defeat ...not the President. Senators think their sole job is to secure their positions in the Senate and protect themselves against the ire of the NRA and other lobbyists. They are advised to remember – The American people are the final arbiters and contrary to their shallow-minded thinking, voters have a long memory… they will meet you at the polls and they will not forget that you care absolutely nothing about the wellbeing of their children and their grand-children, their mothers and fathers, sisters, brothers, uncles, family members and friends that they are maimed and scarred and killed.  
These Senators are mindful only of their own interests; of getting funds and funding from the gun industry.  The American people will not forget that in their suffering you and your cronies categorize and relegate them to mere “props” in a political game. Be warned…. Elections 2014 and 2016 are at hand. 

By David A. Franklin, Jr.
I woke up this morning hoping it was a nightmare but regrettably it is not. The embarrassing, shaming, mortifying truth is that the hateful, vile and despicable Senate Republicans except for a decent few (John McCain, Roger Wicker, Pat Toomey and Susan Collins) and four coward, scaredy-cat, chicken Senate Democrats (Heidi Heitkemp, Max Baucus, Paul Begich and Mark Pryor) peddled their consciences (I now wonder if they have any) for  the surety of re-election. I ask these minions of the NRA “Who do you think travel to the voting booth on election-day and who put their mark of approval beside your names?” It is not the NRA - believe me.

By voting against Background Check:
·        YOU voted for Terrorists - domestic and foreign
·        YOU voted for
Hardened and Repeated Criminals
·        YOU voted for Violent Rapists 
·        YOU voted for
Violent Gangs
·        YOU voted for
Vicious Domestic Abusers
·        YOU  voted for
guns to be in the hands of the Mentally Challenged
·        YOU voted for criminals across the United States

YOU voted against the people of the United Statesthe very people who elevated you to a position with the sole purpose of looking out for their safety and wellbeing. You are being paid hefty sums and are working against your employers the majority of whom have no jobs or are underemployed, the majority of whom subsidize you and your families’ health insurance while you vote against them getting healthcare. Your pensions and easy lifestyles are financed by your employers’ taxes while many of them live a subhuman existence.  I will not ask a question, I make a statement
“You have no shame! You have no conscience! And you must be replaced by honest human beings who have backbones as part of their endoskeleton.”

Mitch McConnell in a show of solidarity for the groups for whom he and his cronies voted, makes a mockery of the 90% of Americans who are in favor of gun regulations. Simultaneously with the failure of the gun legislation in the Senate on Wednesday, a disgusting meme was posted by one of his supporters on his Face Book page. The meme depicts Harry Reid (D-Nev.) asking for reasonable amount of gun control with McConnell showing a formation of a zero with his fingers.  McConnell’s response to this contemptible post is: “We love the memes you send us! Keep them coming!” If nothing else, this old man who we should look up at as a patriarch is stuck in the sewers of hatred (for the President), self-aggrandizement and pitiful, vomit-worthy behavior.

The GOP is going down and will remain down because the sensible Republicans, in a moment of greed (to win at all cost), allowed the body-snatchers (the Tea Party) to take over its organization. The
Republican Party deserves all that it got, having welcomed these nuts into its ranks. GOP has worked hard for its own destruction and no one should deprive them of the Ted Cruzes and the likes, who continue to spew cringing stupidity.  A nauseating example is Cruz’s lie – his claim in the Senate that the new Bill includes the creation of a national database of gun owners knowing full well that the legislation explicitly barred a federal registry. But no! Never let the truth get in the way of defamatory, dishonest self-serving gains.

I must mention and commend Joe Scarborough on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”
(one of the apparently few sensible Republicans who have escaped the body-snatchers – Tea Party).  He was fit to be tied in utter shame for his party. He said it correctly these Senators will “Pay at the Polls” and “We are the 90%; we’re asking for background checks”.

Indeed, I echo:

·        Former Rep. Gabrielle Gifford’s (D-Ariz.) warning "I will not rest until we have 
         righted the wrong these senators have done, and until we have changed our 
         laws so we can look parents in the face and say: We are trying to keep your 
         children safe."

·        Her statement that this is a “Senate in the Gun Lobby’s Grip”

 ·        Tucson Shooting survivor Patricia Maisch “Shame on you!”

 ·        Mark Barden, who lost his son in the Newtown massacre "We will not 
          be defeated. We are not defeated, and we will not be defeated,"  "We are here 
          now; we will always be here because we have no other choice. We are not 
          going away."

Listed ON THE WALL OF SHAME PAGE are the Twitter handles of the infamous senators who voted “No”. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), voted against the amendment on procedural grounds. Each one of us is invited, implored to let them know in no uncertain terms just how we feel and remind them we hold the handle and they the blade. 
Let them know it is far from being over….We’ve only just begun!!! 

“We've only just begun to live, ………..
Before the rising sun we fly, So many roads to choose
We start out walking, And learn to run, 
And yes! We've just begun
Sharin' horizons that are new to us,
Watchin' the signs along the way
Workin' together day to day, together,
And when the evening comes we smile
So much of life ahead………And yes!
We've just begun”
The Carpenters
