The Killing Will Not Stop Because Our Congress Simply Doesn’t Care

Sutherland, Texas – Murdered at Church, 27 by assault weapons, on November 5, 2017. Injured by murderer 20.

Las Vegas, NV – Murdered at public Concert, 59 by assault weapons, on October 1, 2017.  Injured by murderer 241

Plano, TX – Murdered at Work, 9 killed on September 10, 2017.  Injured by murderer 1.

San Francisco, CA – Murdered at Work, 4 killed on June 14, 2017 – Injured by murderer 2.

These are just 4 examples of this disease in our Country.

When will this be listed as domestic terrorism?

Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Speaker of the House had this to say…

When asked about the backlash on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” show, Ryan said the criticism was “disappointing” and said “people who do not have faith don’t understand faith,” and claiming the “secular left” is responsible for some of the “disunity” in the U.S.

“It is the right thing to do in moments like this because, you know what? Prayer works,” he said. “And I know you believe that and I believe that and when you hear the secular left doing this think, no wonder you have so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that.”

 

The “disunity” comes from the Republican Party and President Trump.  Heck, Republican Steve Scalise was shot and almost died but came back to say he’s all for the Second Amendment and the rights of mentally ill people to have access to guns (I’m paraphrasing, of course).  Every time a white man in America kills we are told to hold off on judgement, takes some days to get a hold of our emotions and pray.  When a Muslim man runs over people in NYC and kills 8 of them President Trump rushed to twitter saying he would okay Gauntanamo Bay for him.  No time to reflect or pray…ACTION.

Why is there no action here…again?  Why is okay in America to kill children?  Why does our Republican Congress have more empathy for Gun Manufacturers  in American that victims of Gun Violence?

Mostly I wonder….HOW IS AMERICA GREAT AGAIN?  Children died on Sunday praying.

Inaction will kill more children but Congress doesn’t give a fig!!!

When Will The Killing Stop In America? Never.

We all know details about the Las Vegas Shooting this past week.  The glorification of the shooter, whose name I will never commit to memory because that’s really what was his end goal.   The news outlets are looking for reasons why this happened.  Let me narrow it down for them.  These guns and ammunition should never have been made available to anyone not serving in the Military or Law Enforcement.    They serve no real purpose to the average American.  You can not use them for hunting or safety.   Why did this White, middle-aged man lose his buttons?  What was his motive?  It’s simple, he wanted to be noticed.  Thanks to the glorification of the News Media he will be.

Members of Congress have offered prayers and episodes of shock about what happened.  Really?  When you vote to make it easier for people to access weaponry they shouldn’t you aren’t allowed to feign shock and sadness.  After Sandy Hook we thought this would have been addressed…after Pulse Nightclub Shooting, we thought this would be addressed…now after Las Vegas Massacre, we think this will be addressed.  The truth is the WHORES of Congress lay in bed with the NRA and like lobby groups.  They take money for their deeds so that does indeed make them Whores.

The White House’s response is “It’s not the time to talk about gun control”.  Really Mr. Trump…when is it the right time…when one of your children are placed in the same situation those concert goers were?

I believe in the Constitution, which is why I believe in the Second Amendment.  I also believe that if you own a gun for protection and you can’t defend yourself with 6 bullets, you probably shouldn’t own a gun.

Sean Hannity over at Fox News believes if he was there…outside the hotel room and the guy wasn’t able to shoot anymore bullets then he could have taken him out because he is trained in the use of firearms.  Um…What?!?

The truth is that this shooter had multiple weapons.  Some were modified to fire hundreds of rounds.  Another person with a gun would never have survived an encounter with this shooter.  The body count would have been greater.  You see a psycho/sociopath look for these moments to show just how over the edge they can be.

To all those who think owning a gun will make you safer…that’s the true delusion.  You are more likely to be killed with your own gun than by someone else with a gun.  Congress didn’t learn when Steve Scalise was shot.  All they took out of that shooting was the man didn’t like Conservatives.

When will the killing stop?  Never.  When Congress did nothing of value after the slaughter of Children at Sandy Hook that was the moment we all should have realized that the NRA own our Congress and our weak and ineffectual President drools over the organization because of his insecurity of a lack of perceived masculinity.

How about, as Americans we answer the question…”Why did this tragedy happen?”  The answer is…”It happened because Auto/Semi Automatic weaponry and ammunition shouldn’t be available for legal purchase.

Truth is it won’t stop murders from happening but it will stop the wholesale slaughters like those that happened in Las Vegas, Sandy Hook and Orlando.

Trump Is A Joke

Because the President of the USA is a joke of a moron I offer you hugging Otters.

I would share an endless diatribe as to what is wrong with this man but it’s been done to death and the outcome is the same.  He personifies all the bad in our Country in one person.  White Supremacy has no place in this world of many colors.

I will say this though, just once I would like the press to laugh hardily at his ridiculousness while it’s happening.  His staff can’t “fake news” that…perhaps being mocked directly he might realize that his staff blows smoke up his rear and that he does indeed sound stupid.  Just saying!

Sorry…here ends the diatribe….with more otters 🙂

 

That Time When President Trump Made The Boy Scout Jamboree Look Like a Hitler Youth Rally

Over decades Presidents have gone to the Boy Scout Jamborees to promote strength, dedication and service.  They’ve given uplifting and inspirational speeches to the attendees.  This year our paranoid and odd President, Mr. Trump turned this event into a Hitler Youth Rally.  Talking about politics and LOYALTY.   He spoke about Healthcare and Fake News.  He even threatened to fire Secretary Tom Price if Trumpcare doesn’t pass.  He also followed some of these destructive comments with “believe me”.

Nothing he had to say was relevant to the 40,000 Boy Scouts and Leaders who came to be inspired.  I really believe that Mr. Trump thinks he’s smart.  I think that he believes the law of the land doesn’t apply to him or his family.  I believe that he hasn’t a moral compass and that this speech was wholly inappropriate.

Apparently, I wasn’t the only American appalled.  The Boy Scouts issued a statement that the President is their honorary President of the Boy Scouts and that they are not Political.

The only thing missing from his grandiose speech about how great and tremendous HE is was a story about him banging some beauty queen.

I hope the boys of America look at this moment and think…that’s not what we stand for…not even close.

It’s going to be are really long 4 years 😦

Why I Loath ABC Network

So my taste for TV has dwindled a lot lately.  I watch a select grouping of shows.  Most of them have completed their series runs and that has left voids in what I watch.  If I watch TV now I fill in Netflix, Food Network, HGTV and Law and Order re-runs.  This is sad because I used to love watching a list of shows.  Now I’m like Blah.

Downward Dog – CANCELLED

I loved Downward Dog.  It was cute, funny and lovable.  Who couldn’t like Martin and Nan?  They were a sweet team.  The storyline was evolving with each heartwarming episode.

Who could forget Martin’s observations on life.   Like when he’s banished to the Prison Yard.  Martin has an arch nemesis, Pepper the neighbors cat.  This is hysterical.  How about being the Garbage Dog?  The time he tore apart Nan’s house when left alone.  What dog owner couldn’t relate?  The fact that Martin has a voice is amazingly fun.

There are rumors that this Show is being shopped around to other networks.  I sure hope someone picks it up because I was so excited to watch Season 2.

I’m tired of violent TV Shows.  I’m tired of remakes of remakes.  I’m  tired of humorless “comedies”.  ABC Network, you have nothing to offer me.  I’ve given up on Once Upon A Time and I’m pretty sure that was the only other show I was watching on your crappy network.  You broke my heart when you dumped All My Children and One Life To Live…this just makes me loath you even more!
