Chancing your luck or chancing your arm in Las Vegas? Sadly this was bound to happen. Will they learn? Ever?

Real Bad Deal.

The House always wins, that’s what they say,
Yet you’re free to drink, whiling your money away,
But this sombre October morn may mark the destitution
Of the tucked away-in-a-quiet corner Mandalay Bay;
Surely too many have lost today?

So it’s in God we trust, and pray
We can live with the price we must pay
For retaining an old hide-bound cast-iron Constitution,
And a President who aims to make a Great USA,
But doesn’t care or dare to take on the NRA.

    Your poem is right on.I heard this morning that he had 52 guns in 10 suitcases at the hotel and a stockpile in his home. When our government and media spoon feeds fear in every situation -this is how it’s expressed afterwards. He had all that money and he could of used it to make the world better instead he escalates the fear factor..I don’t understand either- our politicians that do a dance but won’t take on NRA or the gun lobbyists. It wasn’t long ago that someone shot at the baseball practice.in D.C, remember? and one of the senators was really injured..so you would think that they would be taking this all in with more scrutiny.

      Sadly money talks. you can send prayers and consolations as a President but that does no good if its just going to repeat itself. The frustrating thing is Sandy Hook left a President in tears, now all we get is a momentary grimace and a look at the stock price for guns and ammo manufacturers- which went up. Sigh.
