And now boys and girls, it's time for "Fun with Words!" Today's featured contestants are Vice President Joe Biden and a man whose television ratings are so bad it's a wonder he still has a job, Piers Morgan.
Perhaps it’s because he was disgraced in scandal--in his beloved England--getting caught publishing fake photographs of British troops committing fake atrocities in Iraq. But whatever reason, American television viewers consistently overlook him when choosing prime time viewing.
Vice President Biden used a lot of interesting expressions this past week. He kept reiterating that the President, for example, will utilize the executive order (a noun: rule or order issued by the president to an executive branch of the government and having the force of law) on the issue of either limiting the ownership of, or the confiscation of, guns owned by law-abiding citizens.
Simultaneously Piers Morgan was eschewing the controversial internet talk show host Alex Jones one night, justifying the execution and shooting of Jones the following, and then got "pwned," diced, char-grilled, and feasted upon by best-selling author Ben Shapiro one night later.
Throughout both Biden's odd media appearances and Morgan's inept ratings stunts both men repeatedly expressed their respect for the Constitution's Second Amendment. It is an amendment that defines rights given to us by the divine, and enumerated and recognized by our basis of law.
I've had it up to my eyeballs with what the political and theological left continue to call, "respect for the Second Amendment."
I think most of America has as well.
Personally, I couldn't care less if you respect ("a noun: proper acceptance or courtesy; acknowledgment.") it or not.
The Constitution of the United States declares you may not infringe upon it.
Beyond that, the Supreme Court has ruled numerous times--most recently in 2008 and 2010--that infringe means what we think it means. (A verb: acting so as to limit or undermine something; encroach on.)
The problem for the left is known as cognitive dissonance. ("a noun: psychological conflict resulting from simultaneously held incongruous beliefs and attitudes. Often occurring when beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information.")
