The LuLac Edition #3741, March 27th, 2018

Former Senator Rick Santorum (Photo: LuLac archives)
Our two term former Senator Rick Santorum made news this past Sunday. Santorum who ran for President in both 2012 and 2016 suggested that students concerned about gun violence in their schools should learn how to revive wounded people. Santorum said they should do this instead of asking lawmakers to solve their problems. Oh my God, let me swing at this one.
1. Kids are not medical professionals. CPR and first aid are one thing but helping wounded individuals? Is he serious?
2. The second part is quite stunning from a veteran of Congress. Asking lawmakers to solve problems of social ills is what a lawmaker, office holder is supposed to do! THAT’S THE JOB! Until of course the impotent Republican Congress has done little to solve any problems of the middle class. The pissed off Trump supporters of ’16 included.
The CNN Host did say that the students did take action by organizing the march. But Santorum said that they didn’t take action to say how, as individuals, dealing with the issue. asking to themselves, "What am I going to do to actually help respond to a shooter?”
Respond to a shooter? THAT’S NOT THEIR JOB SENATOR! They live with trying to figure it out everyday they enter a school building.
Santorum dismissed that point.
“They took action to ask someone to pass a law. They didn’t take action to say how do I, as an individual, deal with this problem? How am I going to do something about stopping bullying within my own community? What am I going to do to actually help respond to a shooter?” he said.
Fellow CNN panel member Van Jones, who briefly served as an environmental aide under former President Barack Obama, objected to Santorum’s idea.
“I’ve got a kid who’s going to be in high school next year and I want him focused on algebra and other stuff. If his main way to survive high school is learning CPR so when his friends get shot, that to me, we’ve gone too far,” he said on the same show. (LuLac, CNN)

Obviously Mr. Rick isn't running for anything as of now or he might not have made such blatantly stupid comments.
By the by, if you've got four or five rounds from an AR-15 in you, I'm pretty sure CPR or any other such "Responsible" action isn't going to make a damn bit of difference. Give em a bucket of rocks, they'd be better off.

Santorum himself is unifying. We all think he's an imbecile.
