...Obama dished the job off to Joe Biden. http://news.investors.com/politics-andrew-malcolm/122012-637767-obama-gun-violence-plan-assigned-to-joe-biden
That's when I knew this was just political bullshit. Tear in his eye, very nice special effects. About 52% of the voting public falls for that shit.
If you believe passionately in something- you will find the time to make it a priority. If you don't believe passionately in something- you will behave like Obama does- talk some smack and dish the project off. Pretend to care. If you have to, you can blame Joe later.
In the meantime, if you want to read the very best piece of anti gun control and solution based writing on the web- an expert opinion as opposed to all of those blathering idiots running their mouths... I recommend this. Get a cup of coffee, it takes a few mins. http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/an-opinion-on-gun-control/
In life, people make time for the things that matter to them. It is always true, 100% of the time. It is true in relationships, it is true in virtually every project or subject that a person engages in outside of work. If somebody fails to make you or a project a priority- it's time to re- think. Never forget that.
