Oh, please!!  Jocelyn Elders is certifiably insane!

She said something on the lines of, "We need safer guns, and safer
bullets. And since we have car licenses we should have Gun licenses."

How ridiculous is THAT??  She wears a military-type uniform (because,
after all, she IS the Surgeon GENERAL), and talks about how we need gun
licenses??  Where has she been all these years?  Oh yeah.  Arkansas. 
Well, maybe they don't have gun licenses there, but most of the country
does.  Isn't "safer bullets" an oxymoron?  What should the bullet do? 
Hold out a sign that says "BANG"?  Please!  

What's comes after she teaches our kindergarten children about sex? 
Starting a safe-shooting campaign?  "Teenagers are going to shoot
anyway.  So, let's GIVE them the guns, and teach them how to use
them......beginning with the pre-schools."

J. Elders churns my stomach.


It's still the economy, and he's still stupid.
