When did it become acceptable for our elected representatives to become a class of people better than the rest? They make laws we have to follow but exempt themselves.
The got tired of voting periodically to give themselves raises so they passed a law that they get yearly raises unless they vote not to.
They send their kids to private schools but won’t allow ordinary citizens to use a portion of the taxes they pay for public schools to help them pay to send their kids to private schools.
I could go on but you know very well what I’m talking about...

Some interesting news has broken in the wake of the latest push for gun control by President Obama and Senate Democrats: Obama sends his kids to a school where armed guards are used as a matter of fact.
The school, Sidwell Friends School in Wshington, DC, has 11 security officers and is seeking to hire a new police officer as we speak.
If you dismiss this by saying, "Of course they have armed guards -- they get Secret Service protection," then you've missed the larger point.
The larger point is that this is standard operating procedure for the school, period. And this is the reason people like NBC's David Gregory send their kids to Sidwell, they know their kids will be protected from the carnage that befell kids at a school where armed guards weren't used (and weren't even allowed).
Shame on President Obama for seeking more gun control and for trying to prevent the parents of other school children from doing what he has clearly done for his own. His children sit under the protection guns afford, while the children of regular Americans are sacrificed.
