Did you see the President's presidentation on gun control today? He had 4 kids who had written him letters on the stage to validate his concerns. I found it to be propoganda of the worst kind, reminding me of how terrorists are always accused of using civilians as "human shields" in times of battle.
Interestingly enough, as soon as he was done I went on Facebook where I ran into the following post from a friend... "The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation." - Mein Kampf. Some heavy shit, huh?
I'm also keenly aware of what is being done to children in the Middle East with the use of drones. Does the President not think these children are also children? Or are they simply out of sight and out of mind for this president and other like-minded dults?
