As a result of the action in the US Senate yesterday this item appeared in a news article:
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose personal fortune has helped to fund a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns, called Wednesday’s vote a “damning indictment of the stranglehold that special interests have on Washington.”
Duhhhhh…………..isn’t his group a “special interest” group? So, he would rather have his “special interest” group have a stranglehold on Washington? That’s why I despise the use of the term “special interests”. Every group is a “special interest”. It’s only a negative if their special interest conflicts with your special interest. Same goes for that other misused term, “agenda”. Everybody has an agenda. They better………they need to have a path…………….but if their agenda is in conflict with your agenda then it’s bad.
