Continuation of My Special Comment

Posted: December 19, 2012 in Uncategorized

In the fallout of the massacre in CT, the Monday morning quarterbacking has begun. The discussions about gun control has started and the politicians are in the “We Must Do Something….” Stage. I have heard many arguments both pro and con for gun control. I have heard the governor of the great state of Texas, the state I live in, come out and say that teachers should be armed and that CHL holders should be able to carry anywhere and anytime. This is from the jabroni that said Texas should secede from the Union. The same one who tried to run for President. I digress….

Instead of treating this situation just like everything else with making into a political talking point and bumper sticker, how about a little prayerful and logical thought please. My daughter is a correction officer for the Dallas County Sheriffs Dept. She and her colleagues oversee the housing of criminals here in Dallas County. If there is any conflict on the floor, the officers have to deal with it on a hand to hand combat basis. They do not get paid nearly enough to do this dangerous job. Our law enforcement officers, who work a patrol or beat day in and out, have to be prepared for anything. They don’t get paid enough for their important and necessary work. Now we want to ask teachers to pack heat. This brave men and women stand in front of our kids to teach and help mold them into constructive citizens. Yet leaders always want to cut education and teachers pay. Now you want to ask them to be strapped for protection. Good luck filling those positions. I say all that to say this. It is high time to get our priorities in order. Instead of CEOs making millions to run companies in the ground, how about properly compensating our law enforcement personnel and our educators. How about truly taking care of them and their families; taking care of those who serve the public good. It is a shame to that a slime ball politician gets compensated and treated better than the men and woman on the front lines serving the public. When is enough really enough….Just my .02 cents.

    Aww thanks DC for involving my life in your rant. I whole heartily agree with your stance against paying people to ruin companies while we are laying off the very people who get us there. I have teachers in my family and police officers as well. It is very harsh how they are not respected yet if they were not here we would be in shambles. America needs to realize how things were before they existsed and understand why they ever came into play. Everything happened for a reason.
