His wealth of ignorance is astounding.

Beto O'rourke went to Kent State University to deliver an unbelievably dumb message:

Only the government should be trusted with guns.

Yes. That Kent State.  The same place where the government (Ohio National Guard) sent in troops who shot and killed four students and injured nine others in 1970.

The students were peacfully demonstrating against the Vietnam War.

There are believed to be more than 350 million privately owned guns in the US.

Beto will likely run into some fierce resistance when he goes door-to-door confiscating them.  Maybe gun-grabber Michael Moore can make a documentary movie about it.  It will be interesting to watch!   Grin    Smiley

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Some of the students threw rocks at the Guardsmen, many of them were verbally abusing them.

Not to justify the shooting, but "peacefully demonstrating" is not the real picture.

Also, the price of gasoline was $.36 per gallon in 1970.

I remember paying .28 cents/gal. around that time, and I also remember working hard for $1.35/hr.

$.36/gal was the California price.   There was 8¢/gal Gas Tax back then.

Even in those Hippie days of love, peace, and happiness, for all mankind, The People's Republik of Kalifornia liked to tax the crap out of working people.

Why didn't people catch on?

What was Nancy Pelosi doing? She was in Kalifornia then, wasn't she?

Who was she hanging around with?

It was a long time ago, but if I recall, the 8¢/gal Gas Tax was actually a bond measure passed by voters.  All Gas Tax revenues were to be used specifically for building three freeways; one in the Bay Area, and two in the L.A. area.

Nancy Pelosi's political career began in 1987.

Right. Most of them didn't know what bonds were or how they worked. Present residents of Kalifornia are finding out, although many of them probably think Kalifornia can just create money when money is needed.

Of course, its probable that they were told the tax would ensure that they would have good, adequate, roads well into the future, at no cost to them. Cheesy

Edit: I have an idea after talking to a friend of mine who is a private pilot and ex-desert motorcycle racer-

Keep Earth Cookies off our roads, and out of our State and National forests, etc.

They hate roads anyway, and should have no problem being banned from them. Smiley

Furthermore, since Earth Cookies are usually geniuses and therefore rich as Croesus, make them pay for the roads the rest of us want to have and use! It sounds like a win-win! Smiley Smiley Smiley

When Sacramento wants money to do something, they usually use an old Nazi trick of promising to "benefit" children.  Voters eat it up and will sacrifice almost anything if it promises to benefit the children.

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.” - Adolf Hitler [Mein Kampf]

Right. High speed rail and fancy sports arenas are things that really help out children. Cheesy So does banning fun... Cry

Edit: So does paying incompetent teachers lots of money and giving them great benefits and guaranteed jobs, and trying to train them to teach the "gender studies" course so it makes sense to young children... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
