Stuff Happens, No Matter What You Do, You’re Gonna Have Problems

Americans citizens are dying. Jeb Bush and Donald Trump don't care, 'cause shit happens and the bad guys are too smart.

President Obama and Democrats quickly condemned comments made Friday by Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who said that there isn't always a useful government solution to mass shootings and other crises because "stuff happens."

Speaking at an event in Greenville, S.C., Bush's comment came in the midst of expansive answers about the Second Amendment and how people respond to school shootings.

"We're in a difficult time in our country and I don't think that more government is necessarily the answer to this," he said. "I think we need to reconnect ourselves with everybody else. It's just, it's very sad to see. But I resist the notion -- and I did, I had this, this challenge as governor, because we have, look, stuff happens, there's always a crisis and the impulse is always to do something and it's not necessarily the right thing to do."
Two days after a gunman killed nine people at an Oregon community college and then shot himself dead, the Republican presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump, seemed to accept the inevitability of mass shootings in the US.

In a rare sit-down interview, for broadcast on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, Trump told Chuck Todd: “I have to say, no matter what you do, you’re gonna have problems.

“Because you have sick people. They happen to be intelligent. And, you know, they can be sick as hell and they’re geniuses in a certain way. They are going to be able to break the system.”

The New York real-estate billionaire, who boasts of possessing a concealed carry permit, said he did not see the need for increased firearms regulations.

At a rally in suburban Nashville on Saturday, he mentioned his New York state handgun carry permit and added that anyone who attacked him would be “shocked”, because he would emulate Charles Bronson in the vigilante film Death Wish.

“I’m a very, very big second amendment person,” Trump said in Tennessee. “This is about self-defense, plain and simple.”

Trump reminisced about the Bronson-starring 1974 film and got people in the crowd to shout out the title in unison. In the movie, an affluent, liberal architect embarks on a vigilante mission after his wife is killed and his daughter raped.

“Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct,” Trump said.

Speaking to NBC, Trump said those US jurisdictions with “the strongest, the most stringent laws [on gun control] are in almost every case the worst places. It doesn’t seem to work.”
Actually, gun control does work. It doesn't work in the United States because there essentially isn't any.  Gun control works in the United Kingdom, Canada, and various Nordic countries. It also works in China, Japan, Korea and other countries. Why can't we at least give it a try in the United States? Nothing is sacred, not even the Second Amendment. We need to do something!

Quick, look over there, that Mexican wants to kill you and rape your daughter!

Trump claims to know how to protect us from imaginary threats, but not real ones.

Do you remember the "Dean Scream"? It was a very stupid and trivial reason to say that someone was not presidential. What will it take to say that Jeb Bush and Donald Trump are not presidential?

My only other reaction to these two is a string of obscenities. I' ll spare you.
