In light of the most recent assault gun massacre in Orlando FL, the ‘worst mass killing in US htistory’ as described by media outlets around the country, our legislative body in DC, the Congress of the US of A, has once again come down hard on the side of doing nothing. Status Quo is still safely in place & the NRA again rules. It appears, to us here at Todo Chronicles, that the goal of this body is to struggle to exceed the current achievement & try for even larger numbers of dead & injured. To achieve even bigger numbers of victims of gun violence to put in our history books & Guinness Book of World Records.
Even tho a large percentage of the voters in the whole nation is calling for change. Reasonable & sensible gun legislation. Even tho many of the legislators in that ‘August Body’ are calling for, demonstrating for a vote on said sensible gun legislation, at the very least. The Speaker of the House has chosen to ignore, deny & obfuscate. Rely on the same ol’ same ol propaganda. 2nd Amendment rights trump right to life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness.
They lead the nation in a moment of silence. Not a moment for each victim. A moment of silence so they can all stand around with their heads down on TV & look sad & sorrowful. But consider measures that might begin to address the epidemic of gun violence gripping this country that seems to think, en mass, that the only way to settle disputes, express views or just get even is to tote a gun & shoot up as many innocents as possible. The leadership, the legislative body of the country, can’t seem to work up the courage to defy their master, the NRA & other major campaign contributors & do the right thing.
But, we, here at Todo Chronicles, don’t want you to get the wrong idea. We, here at Todo Chronicles, don’t want you to be left thinking that these elected officials are inured to preserving previously alluded to life, liberty & pursuit of happiness for the pre-born or the civil rights & liberties for them & those they consider worthy & acceptable to their own views & beliefs. They make very sure the pre-born get born. Lots of tooth-gnashing & legislative efforts in that arena. You betcha.
We, here at Todo Chronicles, have been doing research. We have found allusions to a mid-century, last century, movement known as ZPG. Being naturally curious journalists, we here at Todo Chronicles, we looked into this interesting acronym. ZPG it turns out, was an effort to contain the world human population at the level of that era. Thinking being that AnimalPlanet.com would be a better place in the future for all inhabitants if resources necessary to all life were not depleted to the point of not being able to regenerate to accommodate future needs. And with no place here on AnimalPlanet.com left to migrate to. At the time, intergalactic travel being the stuff of science fiction.
So we, here at Todo Chronicles, wish to congratulate the NRA & the Congress for taking a lesson from history. Allowing the market to maintain the population of this country at a level still supportable by the environment & the resources needed to sustain life. The effort to support the pre-born but kill off the expendable & the unacceptable to them.
Congratulations to the NRA/Congress Consortium for undying efforts to maintain world human population. NRA/Congress is the new ZPG. You win the Todo Chronicles Award for Smug Hypocrisy & Chicken-Poop Worship of Gold & Power.
For a little levity on these sad days . . .
