Last week, President Barack Obama, the 44th president of the United States and the only one who reportedly leaves no shadow, ventured forth to Paris to join 196 other national leaders on official business. Last month in the City of Light, 129 people were murdered and 352 wounded by crazed Islamofascists. Yet President Obama did not go to Paris to organize the world against Islamofascists, whose headquarters are just a B-52’s flight to Syria and Iraq. He did not go to Paris to urge stricter gun control laws on the French, which is his usual response to gun violence. No, he journeyed to Paris with the aforementioned world leaders to devise ways that they might manage climate control.
Our Noble Prize-winning president declared this absurd world gathering a “turning point.” It would be the “moment we finally determined we would save our planet.” Though, alas, no plausible agreement for managing climate control is likely to be signed as President Obama’s historic “moment.” In fact, not one of the world leaders is likely to even suggest where they might set the world thermostat. In fact, there is no world thermostat. Paris was but another futile gesture made by our sonorous president who leaves no shadow.
Once he had made his “turning point” speech in Paris, the prophet Obama vamoosed for Washington and received word that in California 14 people had just been murdered and 21 injured in a massacre by two or three gunmen. The identities of the perpetrators were not even known when our president trotted out his favorite cure for gun violence. He attributed the murders to the lack of “common-sense gun safety laws.” There are over 300 million guns in America, most of them constitutionally protected, and against this colossal figure he calls for “common-sense” laws?
