Enough Said


Almost perfect. To be precise, I would have substituted "defund police" for "defund the police" at the end because "the" means "all." However, the GOP demonizes "defund the police," so Jen Psaki, a better strtegist than I, went for it. She was asked

Is there a thought there that basically somebody, some criminal who has been committing crimes with limited interruption or interference from police for the last couple of weeks or months is going to stop this easy lfe of crime if they have a summer job?

The President's press secretary responded

Well, I think the President believes that we shouldn't allow access to guns for those criminals who are currently illegally buying them from some dealers  across the country. Part of his announcement is taking steps to do exactly that.  Part of his announcement is also ensuring there's specific guidance to communities across the country to ensure they have funding to get more community police around the country, something that was supported by the American Jobs Plan, uh, that was voted into law by Democrats just a couple of months ago. Some might saythat  the other party was for defunding the police. I'll let others say that....

If your passion is for getting more and more guns into the hands of more and more people, among them individuals who shouldn't have the deadly weapons, do not feign outrage when some of those individuals use their guns to blow a few people away. Cause meets effect..

And summer jobs?  As someone, possibly King Solomon, once put it, "idle hands are the devil's workshop." which would put the GOP in the devil's camp, thus helping confirm ancient wisdom.
