My Brother’s Keeper

Barack Obama

Quote:  “If there’s a child on the south side of Chicago who can’t read, that matters to me, even if it’s not my child. If there’s a senior citizen somewhere who can’t pay for their prescription, who has to choose between medicine and the rent, that makes my life poorer – even if it’s not my grandparent. If there’s an Arab-American or Mexican-American family being rounded up by John Ashcroft without benefit of an attorney or due process, I know that that threatens my civil liberties. And I don’t have to be a woman to be concerned that the Supreme Court is trying to take away a woman’s right, because I know that my rights are next. It is that fundamental belief – I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper – that makes this country work.”   ―     Barack Obama

Mr. President, Do these rights extend to the rights of people who own or want to own guns?

One thought on “My Brother’s Keeper

  1. Ol’ Bark Obama talks the talk — loud and clear — and you cannot fault any politician for doing that; that’s what they do. Dogs gotta bark, pollies likewise. But does he walk the walk? From this end of the earth (New Zealand) it certainly looks … … not.

    I think that your good president’s view is simply that “If Americans want to bare arms, they should cut their sleeves off” (perhaps someone should take him aside and gently explain it to him?).
