Here is the note, handwritten by Gabby Giffords speech therapist, that she read from yesterday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

You can see how carefully the sentences were structured of words that she could say clearly, while also being printed and spaced so that he damaged eyesight could read what was written.

And she did an AMAZING job.

If you did not get to see the video yesterday, or would like to see it again, you can click here for a second chance.


  1. Before I saw it, I read a comment that someone said she read like a 1st grader. I disagree. She read with emotion, with power, and slowly, yes, but as someone who was determined to get every word correct, which she did, and to get her point across, which she did beautifully. Anyone who can spport unlimited access to military weapons after seeing and hearig her yesterday, is far more brain-damaged than Gabby is. And yes, LaPierre and GOP, that means you!

    1. Whomever made that comment is a dumbass dare I saw RWNJ also,too!
      Gabby came back from being fucking shot in the head! Its Amazing her progress!
      Yes determination, conviction and power. For someone with a metal plate in her head from a point blank shooting, I'd say remarkable!
      Who ever said that needs to be bitchslapped or worse.

    Your respect, loyalty and the honour you pay to Congresswoman Giffords define you, in my respect.

    Gabby, in her halting speech, calls on each of us to bring the best we have to national service.

    The other side may choose to waste integrity and energy in false pursuits of wronged self-righteous indignation.

    Thank you for pointing us all in the direction of righteous action in support of the heart/soul of the American citizenry.

    She is an amazing person, truly a role model for all of us.

    On another note: look out Alaska, Joe Miller still wants to be your senator:

    According to Gayle Trotter, if Congresswoman Giffords had had her asault rifle, all would have been well (unless the gunman still open fired and Giffords then let loose about 30 rounds in the other direction perhaps taking out additional bystanders). Isn't it interesting that Trotter testified that women need to have big magazines to protect themselves but that she is on record as having opposing the biggest law on record that was written to protect women:

    1. She had a glock. Didn't help her at all.
      She still has the glock!
      Also, another (good guy) had a gun there, he almost got shot by police as the (bad guy) shooter, with all the confusion and shooting going on.

    2. Exactly. And can you imagine the multiple deaths in that dark movie theater if every person had whipped out their own assault rifle and begun firing toward when they thought the origianl shooter was? My God, the entire crowd would be dead.

    I can see people with assault rifles "protecting" others in a crazy scene, accidentally killing innocents, and police arriving, shooting these people who are "protecting", as how is law enforcement going to tell who are the bad guys and good guys when they all have assault rifles.

    This is so stupid.

    1. Stupid is right! Or the right is stupid. Or both!!

    I also AGREE she DID an AMAZING job with her SPEECH. Sorry I like to SHOUT random WORDS when I write.

    Gabby's speech just blew me away! Considering all the hard work she's had to do, it's amazing that she's even speaking at all. A lesser person would have given up long ago.

    Conservatives Outraged Because Gabby Giffords Did Not 'Hand-Write' Her Senate Testimony

    ...Within minutes, Jennings updated the post to note that the paper was actually hand-written by Giffords’ speech therapist, and 17 minutes after it was posted, WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza tweeted the clarification. Natalie Jennings confirms, to Mediaite, that “The therapist wrote the note pictured in the photo, but Giffords was responsible for the contents of the statement.”

    What have we heard from her? a Bible quote, and some word salad, and that's IT!

    I bet Ailes told her to STFU or.... OUT TUMBLE ALL THE SKELETONS!!!!

    G-can you ask Joe if she has been muzzled by him?
    All he has to do is answer Yes/No we don't need no stinkin' details, but I'm 100% sure she has been muzzled as sure as Todd duct taping that Big fat mouth of hers!

  11. Courageous...Simply Courageous. Coincidentally, I spoke about Congresswoman Gifford today w/i my podcast (The Unfruitful Fruits of Anxiety). Courageous!

    Yes, when I saw her reading/saying those words, I must say, there was some serious dust in my living room, or I had a sudden allergy attack... :) I thought she was awesome, and I just wish, she could have NOT been a target of that deranged gun toting SOB.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
