I've really been curious as to why this connection, this "logic" has not
been more referenced in regard to the Colorado shootings. The very day it
happened, Clinton gave an emotional statement about how problems cannot be
solved with violence. I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. This very same
man just sent hundereds of bombs raining down on a country suffering a
civil war. This is one more devastatingly ironic example to kids about how
hypocrtical and just plain stupid adults can be.
