Gingrich wants to take away the guns of the 51st state!

Gingrich: ‘The NRA Has Been Too Timid’

Newt Gingrich, in his speech to the National Rifle Association, said he hopes the NRA won’t be offended, but the group has been “too timid.”

“A Gingrich presidency will submit to the United Nations a treaty that extends the right to bear arms as a human right for every person on the planet,” Gingrich said.

So, Newt wants everyone on the planet to have guns, but not the moon colonists? Poppycock!



















I'm sure the rest of the planet will be thrilled to get guns instead of say food or potable water. Or peace.

5. A "Gingrich presidency"? Oh, Newtie, you are hilarious!

Speaking as a citizen of the non-USA part of the planet, most of us don't want to be like the USA when it comes to guns. (Or when it comes to prisons, or healthcare, or capital punishment.) We've seen Bowling for Columbine. We know your homicide rates. We know the NRA buys politicians.

I know so-called American Exceptionalism is an applause line for Newt-type-people, but a lot of us outside your borders think it sounds not only arrogant, but delusional.

(Random side note: My Canadian-English spellcheck doesn't even recognize the word "exceptionalism," which makes me giggle.)

7. Of all the futuristic movies made so far the winner so far for most accurate is...

Mad Max.

This is the GOP's wet dream - a nightmare world with absolutely zero government, viable resources are so costly the upper 1% are the only ones who can afford it and we're killing ourselves for what's left of the scraps. If we made Gingrich president this would become all too real.
