'Sitting on the fence'.....an expression used for those of us who can't
quite make up their minds about an issue that arises.
I learned early on in life, courtesy of my father,
that taking a stand on something was the right thing to do.
Only problem was that my father and I
were always on opposite sides of the fence!!
We mostly agreed to disagree and things went well.
But I did learn that taking a stance and voicing it was alright to do.
This of course leads me to a big issue of the present day.....
that of 'gun control' in the USA.
The US is the only country in the western world
that doesn't have strict gun-control.
And look at the result of this.....351 mass shootings this year alone.
Why hasn't there been something done about this?
Well, because the National Rifle Association (NRA)
has financial control of the GOP (Grand Old Party)
otherwise known as the Republican Party.
It is in the NRA's best interests to prevent any strict gun-control
laws to be passed....as that would cut into their profits and power.
So many here in North America say we must pray for the victims
and their families.
To me, this doesn't do anything!
This is 'man-made' not 'god-made'.
Only humans can stop the insanity that is happening in the US.
Guess you know where I stand on this issue.
I do not like 'sitting on the fence' for any length of time.
