Three cheers for the dad.

25. The only thing that can make them feel like crap

is a bad quarterly statement.
They do not care about anything else.

7. At the sight of the first picture, I thought, "What a great idea."

By the time the Thomas and Friends picture came up, I was literally fighting back tears. Now here I am at work, still trying not to cry. The bathroom is full too. Guess I'll just have to wait...

9. I have a feeling

that the grounds maintenance crew has been instructed to come in on Sunday afternoon or early Monday morning to pick up all these inconvenient reminders of their culpability. Wouldn't want their beautiful minds bothered with unpleasantries, yunno.

10. This needs to turn into....

.... one of those "Pay It Forward" things... where it catches on and people start doing it all over the country wherever there is a NRA sign. Everybody needs to Facebook and Tweet it.

19. HOLD ON A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In those pictures it says national RIFLE association.

NOT national ASSAULT rifle association!

NOT national SEMI-AUTOMATIC rifle association!

If they were only promoting a rifle association, I would have no problem with that,

but how about a little truth in advertising N-FUCKING-RA?

23. Where are the churches?

It's pathetic that the local religious leaders and religious organizations in the area aren't taking the lead and protesting on Sunday too but they might lose some parishioners who think that their rights to unlimited gun ownership in our country trumps any rational laws that could reduce the killing of innocents.

27. Imagine using pink or blue cutouts representing headstones- one for every dead child....

It would get very cluttered very fast.
