    Billionaires Buying the Laws They Want- They’ve done it before!

    "Rich people ARE different. When public opinion is against them, they simply buy the public policy they want. These people will make the rules for us if gun owners don’t speak up."

    "A longer version of this article, originally appeared in The Blaze under the title, “Not your Momma’s Free Market and is reprinted with their permission. By Jennifer Roback Morse."


    "I recently attended the Gun Rights Policy Conference with my husband. I learned that the gun rights movement is dealing with the same problem I’ve dealt with as a social conservative. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is the Sugar Daddy of the campaign to disarm law-abiding citizens. In social conservatism, we have Warren Buffett and George Soros and others to deal with. Maybe the pro-Second Amendment, pro-citizen self-defense movement should team up with the pro-life, pro-family movement."

    You will not rise to the occasion; you will fall back on your level of training.” Archilochus, 650 BC

    Thank you for the interesting tip, unfortunately the Beck-Blaze meme is too unpleasant for some to look.
    Aristotle describes the modes of persuasion in his Rhetoric as Ethos, Logos, Kairos and Pathos. Don’t be pathetic or, worse, bathetic! Alexander Pope 1727 Many Painters who could never hit a Nose or an Eye, have with Felicity copied a Small-Pox, or been admirable at a Toad or a Red-Herring. And seldom are we without Genius's for Still Life, which they can work up and stiffen with incredible Accuracy. Peri Bathous vi

    But, sometimes the most vile speaks the truth.

    Yes, thank you. That is the magick of the meme, that it can be used to hide unpleasant truths, and from un-ready eyes.

    TRUMP is such a meme. Perhaps an unpleasant public persona, but speaking truth to power and speaking truth to eager ears.
