Guns and Presidential Runs

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida was a gun free zone.  That means no one is supposed to bring a gun or have a gun in there.  That is what a gun free zone means, doesn’t it?   It does not mean guns are free there.  What was anyone doing with a gun in that place?  Is seems the only one who understood this was the resource officer and Deputy Sheriff Scot Peterson.  And that is spelled Scot with one T, so as not to confuse him with the other Scott Peterson with two TTs, who killed his pregnant wife and dumped her body in the San Francisco Bay.  But resource officer and Deputy Sheriff Scot Peterson one T, understood the concept of the gun free zone and did not enter the gun free zone, even though the shooting was going on.  Just because someone else had violated the gun free zone, was no reason for Deputy Scot with one T Peterson, to do the same.  As we all know, two wrongs never make a right.

Now President the Donald Himself wants to arm teachers but that violates the whole idea of the gun free zone.  If the teachers or anyone has a gun, in a gun free zone, it defeats the whole purpose.  Why can’t people just follow the rules?

Now with all the vitriol hurled at President the Donald Himself please, do not read the previous paragraph as criticism of our beloved President.  We always love whoever is the President.  We loved President Obama, who we always refer to as the Smartest Man Whoever Was or Will Be President of the United States.  And, we loved President George the Younger or W, as he was called affectionately.  And, we never thought he was as dumb, as everyone else did.  And, this affection also goes for all the other Presidents, going back to first one, George Washington.

Now people are already looking to 2020 with President the Donald Himself, appointing a Campaign Manager and all kinds of democrats looking to get into the race including Elizabeth, Cherokee, Warren and Gil, I Let O.J. Get Away With It, Garcetti.  Then there’s Oprah.  Back at the Golden Globes Oprah gave a speech and afterwards people were so impressed that they said she should run for President.  Billionaires said so, people in the democrat party said so and even people in the street said so.  But then Oprah said she wouldn’t run.  It might have had something to do with a poll that showed only 24% of the American people thought she should run. But that was a few weeks ago and now, after hearing from many more enthusiastic supporters and realizing that these polls have only been right, maybe twice in this century, she has had second thoughts.  Because Oprah now says, she’ll run if she gets a clear sign from God.  What that might be, we have no idea.  We doubt it would be the burning bush thing, as that was so B.C.  But maybe it will be a phone call or better yet, a text like.  ‘Run Oprah :’) YHWH’.  Then again maybe He’ll come to her in a dream looking like Johnny Carson saying.  “Run Oprah, Run”.

But is Oprah or anyone thinking this through?  What if she does get a clear signal whether it’s a phone call, a text or the ghost of Johnny Carson by her bed and she runs?  And, she loses?  Has anyone thought what that might mean?

  • Don, maybe Oprah should join the evangelicals if she wants a clear sign from God, because in God they trust (all others take their chances — or pay cash, as they say).).

    Now this is great humor/satire, wading into a very touchy subject area. Nicely done! 🙂

  • Muse I’ll have to take your word on the Evangelicals as we don’t have a lot of them in New York City. I have spoken to a few over the years but put an emphasis on few.

  • Mark,

    Thank you. I kept looking at that story every day and I kept saying. I can’t make fun of this but then they kept running it everyday and then I said. Yes I can.

    With Oprah, if she does get a clear sign, I hope she shares with us what it was.
