"To answer the question, should kids be off limits? My answer is yes. So long as they don't cause havoc and help find real solutions instead. As my old boss would say, 'Don't throw a bag of manure out the front window unless the back window is rolled up'. Don't know that means kids? Think about it."
It does not seem that long ago, when someone was running for office, his or her family was off limits. Of course, the candidate's family stayed in the wings and never tried to steal the spotlight. For Presidents up until we had Slick Willie, the President's wife and kids were seldom seen except for ceremonial purposes. But then we had "I am not the type just to stay home and bake cookies!" With the unelected Hillary mucking with our health care, all bets were off the table.
I don't feel bad in the least that Hillary let herself come under fire when she was supposed to only be the First Lady. It was her husband who first set the table. Remember? "With the Clintons, you get two for the price of one". Okay. But that is not what the Constitution says. But who cares these days, if your favorite color is blue.
The children and professional actors who have been protesting since the high school shooting in Florida are starting to get slammed on social media. Many on the Left are crying foul and "Unfair!" Well, here is the bottom line. Those on the Right are trying to fix this problem. Find the root cause and get rid of it. Those on the Left are using kids to be their pawns. To set an agenda. To get a good wedge issue for November. Thus, when brainwashed kids come after innocent, law abiding patriots, mega pushback is the logical result.
I don't know if Gonzalez and Hogg (as well as some others), are smelling a big paycheck by getting in thick with the party apparatchiks. I would like to think they are not. The sage advice I would give to them (should they ever listen), is get out of the limelight. Then, help the citizens find viable solutions to this problem. Attacking the Second Amendment AND the NRA are not solutions. If you bite the NRA, the NRA is are going to bite back. The country and our freedoms are too important not to.
To answer the question, should kids be off limits? My answer is yes. So long as they don't cause havoc, and help find real solutions instead. As my old boss would say, "Don't throw a bag of manure out the front window unless the back window is rolled up". Don't know that means kids? Think about it.
