It is sad to say, but it is time to outlaw baseball weapons as part of a rider to Obama’s United Nation’s Arms Control Treaty. A bad precedent has been set where black assailants have been brutally assaulted while in the midst of carrying through with their customary task of armed robbery. Consider how this muddy’s the waters of the national debate where within Chicago’s close knit Westside and Southside communities where don’t ask don’t tell in all matters of violence is already under fire by misguided forces who blame the de-facto state of war on lack of moral character due to welfare incentives that favor single head of householders and not firearms. Consider how destabilizing to the structure of politics in Chicago and Washington it would be if regular citizens displaced the Police force in standing guard over their own communities? No doubt the economic entrepreneurship of gangs would be stunted. The longstanding drug trade would no doubt be displaced and its sales might be so impacted that many different ‘black-ops’ secret government programs would become underfunded! The domino effect would no doubt affect major banking institutions as with Citicorp or BCCI who would see a drop in the amount of funds available for offshore account laundering. The operation south of the border might begin to collapse as payoffs to high Mexican government officials would no doubt diminish and the amount of ready cash to buy and trade military grade armaments from the U.S. Justice Department would crash dramatically. Just the thought of millions of armed citizens roaming around unsupervised protecting life and limb and their own homestead might lead to a backlash against politicians with longstanding careers servicing the fragile connection of international too big to fail banks. Needful legislations that defers the cost of these corporate empires might no longer be able to be put on the backs of the lower 90%! Our closest allies might lose the billions in military handouts of military equipment and lose influence over their own empire building initiative which no doubt would impact the supply of cheap and plentiful supplies of Cocaine, Opium and other similar addictive profitable commodities. Chaos might abound and tougher operating standards descend upon all the major multinationals in terms of employee benefits and shouldering the burden of culpability for environmental damage that their companies regularly produce. And there is absolutely no doubt that government subsidies and tariffs would savage the arrangements to pass off further increase cost of living inflation on the poor in order for top echelon of the business community to make customary high profit margins. The one-percent might lose valuable market share and economic playing field go retrograde after the many advances of the last forty years where wealth is once again more evenly balanced across society as a whole.
No, all of this is too horrible to imagine. We must all gather together to support Barack Obama’s campaign to ban, guns, knives, baseball bats, spoons and screwdrivers! “Show your support of this Presidential initiative and raise your plastic spoon high against further violence today!”
