8. Ben Franklin "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

 

All those nuts with guns would think nothing of not using them given half a chance.
And all of them are rightwing extremists.

I would be very happy if we could go back, and demand President Kennedy not be in an open air convertible, and RFK not having anyone but his security on the way out the kitchen,
and Allard Lowenstein been behind bullet proof glass when speaking to that nutjob who killed him, and well, John Lennon not getting out of a car on the street, then walking into the courtyard of his home.

but we can prevent those things from happening.

the lesson of history is to make sure never again will those things happen.

And next time, make reservations for the Capital.

BTW- of course you might remember they said that on 9-11, the plane shot down was heading for the capital. Thanks to everyone including God for that Building standing tall.
