Stop the World, I Want to Get Off

Monday’s political observation:

Oh, Dearies, this one is so pregnant with possibilities I think I'm having labor pains.

Seems someone started a petition to allow open carry of weapons at the Republican convention in Cleveland in July at the Quicken Loans Arena, which is usually a gun-free site.  Thus far, 20,000 concerned folks have signed the petition.

Now, you’d assume these weapons would be carried for self-defense, right?   Cleveland isn’t known for its pacific pastures and all, so one must take care when walking through the valley of the shadow of death.  Why, they’d be sitting ducks should a malcontent start blazing away with six-shooters.

Ah, but maybe there’s another plot in play here.   Is this a new way to select the presidential nominee?   A last man standing thing?  

And how convenient is that venue?   Quicken Loans Arena?   Need a Quick(en) Loan for bail money?

Wait.   Is this another dirty trick perpetrated by the oppos?

Oh, I swoon.    

In the meantime, Happy Spring! 


  1. What next from the Republican Party, I wonder every day. Now they want to have people carrying guns into the convention. What about the security people doing their job and the conventioneers doing theirs? Patti

  2. Hang in there, Gully. Don't leave us. You have too much writing and traveling to do in this crazy, crazy world. Yet, believe me. I do feel your pain.

  3. should have posted this today....seems more like April Fools/

  4. Beautiful flower!! Go figure on the political side of life. Does The Shadow Know what is forthcoming in the November election? Cap and Patti ..
