Today’s NRA press conference was a shameful evasion of the crisis our country is facing. Their proposed solution to reduce mass shootings like the one in Newtown, CT: put armed guards in every school in America.
The NRA’s extreme leadership has completely lost touch with the American people, their members, and reality. Today, they made it even more clear with what they didn’t say:
Not a word about background checks. Not a word about assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Not a word about ending gun trafficking.
Not an ounce of common sense.
Please join me in rejecting the NRA’s vision of a world where everyone is armed and no one is safe.
You would think that following the execution of 20 first graders, the NRA would finally come around to the need for common sense gun laws. Instead, they doubled down on their extreme agenda.
What we need are the tough new laws that we know will keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and protect our children.
What we don’t need is a culture of fear that increases gun sales while putting our families at even greater risk.
Tell your members of Congress that it’s time to stand up to the NRA:
Thanks you for standing against the gun lobby,
Mayors Against Illegal Guns

President Obama Nominates John Kerry for Secretary of State
Published on Dec 21, 2012
President Obama announces Senator John Kerry as his nominee to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. December 21, 2012.
I do not like Sen. Kerry because he was weak during his Presidential campaign, when he allowed the Swift Boat idiots to derail his pursuit of The White House. It appeared to me then, that Sen. Kerry was not up to the task of fighting for the office of President of The United States.
Has he grown a pair of cojones after having none in 2004?
He will need a big brass pair to follow in the high heels of Secretary Of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
She took nobodies bull feces.
But I am against this nomination on a much more personal note. I admire and respect Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice, whom has worked hard to get where she is, not marry into wealth and politics as Sen. Kerry has done. Ambassador Rice is intelligent, smart, diplomatic and sharp, as is our President. She was abused and misused by a few racist, antique and jealous caucasian Congressmen.
The fact that several Congressional members used lies and misinformation to character assassinate Ambassador Rice, and we Americans allowed that to happen, makes me ill. We continue to allow politicians and the media, to spread lies and blatantly evil nasty rumors as the truth and facts.
That needs to stop now.
POTUS Obama and I disagree on this nomination. I disagree because appointing Sen. Kerry creates a vacant seat in the United States Senate. A seat the TeaTardedRepubliCANTS want very badly. That is the lone reason The GOPretenders screamed Kerry’s name so loudly when Ambassador Rice was forced to withdraw her name as a candidate for Secretary Of State.
If They win that vacant seat in a special election……
My second reason for not liking Sen. John Kerry as Secretary Of State is simple dislike for the goal of the TeaTardedRepubliCANTS, to pick and choose who Barack Obama has in his cabinet. For thinking they have a right to dictate who President Obama picks for HIS cabinet…before HE even decides whom HE wants for HIS cabinet.
That has never been the protocol for cabinet selection in the past, so why, now, does the Reich wing believe they can set a precedent for the 44th POTUS when the past 43 POTUS had no involvement from the opposition party in cabinet selection?
Allow me to tell you why: Racism. Hatred. Envy. Jealously.
GOPretenders still can not accept they lost on November 6th, 2012.
They believe they can choose the next Presidential cabinet.
And steal a Senate seat as well……BUT I support MY POTUS 5000%.
He is smarter than I.
