Guns for the Money

So yesterday, another school shooting. This one at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Brower county Florida. Dozens of hearts were broken yesterday by the deaths of 17 of their loved ones and dozens of children, teachers, and parents were unnecessarily terrorized.
"Thoughts and prayers" have become numbing over the years. A sign on twitter reads, "Policies, not prayers." I agree.



20 Things Guilty People Do
That Trump Does Daily

Every now and then I find something that I believe is very important to share. The following is such an item. This was originally published on Twitter by Seth Abramson, and at this American political juncture it is information we should all have and consider. Mr. Abramson was kind enough to grant me his permission to reprint it here.

America Under the Gun

Under the Gun

Up in Arms. Many of today’s gun owners are up in arms. They see a government that seeks to disarm its citizens and is willing to twist the facts and turn them inside out to accomplish its goal.



Thoughts and Prayers

Are thoughts and prayers the best we can get from elected officials? Maybe we need some better elected officials.



Can Anyone Save the ACA?

Health Care

Right now #SavetheACA is trending on Twitter. I don't think it's going to happen no matter what American citizens want. The House of Representatives, seems to be caught up in some nostalgic, delusional version of "Father Knows Best" with speaker Paul Ryan at the head of the table, making a mess of the turkey that is the ACA.


Coming to America

coming to America

These days it might seem as if living in jeopardy is just a fact of life but danger is nothing new. People have lived in jeopardy since the beginnings of human life and, around the world, many continue to live in mortal terror of losing all they love, all they have acquired, all they have achieved.



Ammunition Notes

News today focused on National Security. However, security should begin at home. With the ongoing turmoil in the Trump White House, it is easy to lose sight of many of the issues that remain unattended. One of those issues is comprehensive gun legislation, which would be a major step in improving the safety of the American public.



The Ungapatchka Elephant

Yiddish has a better word for ostentatious. It's "ungapatchka." As defined by the Urban Dictionary, it means overly ornate, busy, ridiculously over-decorated, and garnished to the point of distaste. Ungapatchka fits the white elephant that will soon be occupying the Oval Office to a "T". The point of distaste is clearly met by Trump's fear mongering through his vile plans for America.


Why Pro-life is NOT Pro Life

Unborn

A miscarriage left me with the understanding that abortion would never be a good choice for me. Even so, I believe the decision to end a pregnancy or carry it to term—yes or no—belongs solely to the woman it concerns and to nobody else.



Extreme Vetting: Who Vets the Vetters?

Donald Trump talks about "extreme vetting" of immigrants. It is peculiar that he is running for the highest office in American and nobody thought to "vet" Donald Trump or any other candidate up-ballot or down-ballot.
