The problem with gun violence is the emphasis on ownership, instead of use.
Felony gun misuse is a problem because our jails are full of candy criminals. Dope offenders that need treatment, not jail.
As I’ve said before, in the case of gun violence, for the first offense, neuter the perp.
I’m not going to suggest that I have the cure for our wacked out justice system, but I do know that armed violence is repugnant. Terrible. Devistating, and worse when it’s a school shooting.
So, let the punishment be repugnant and horrible.
When a firearm is used in the commission of a crime, the covicted felon would best be neutered for the first offense. We don’t want to deny said offender possible rehabilitation, but we don’t want to let that freak breed. Let’s keep that shit out of the gene pool.
The inablers need harsh consequenses as well. “My kid took my gun” ain’t good enough.
Oh, and here in the city, police ought to take these gangbangers and teach ’em to shoot. The rash of unintended victims is appalling. Teach ’em to hit only the person they’re shooting at and there will be a dramatic decrease in shooting injuries and deaths.
What’s taking so long? He’s a cancer on the post office. He’s got to be removed!
Where in the constitution does it state that people with white collars shall be treated with kid gloves rather than as criminals?
Biden needs to get his party in line. He needs to know that we want to spend as much time and resources as it takes to reveal all the criminal activity of the trump administration and prosecute the guilty parties to the fullest extent of the law.
We’re happy to move on only after we’ve cleaned up the last for years.
You can’t build a new administration on a turd pile.
The retrumplicans have turned the Republican party into a crazy mob of lunatics. Their belief in everything Trump says is true is ridiculous. We know it’s all a sham. Most of these people know they’re lying, they just have no moral center.
This is the evolution of the years of the Gingrich playbook. We should have seen it coming with the tea party, and some of us did.
What are these so called legislators doing in office? We continue to see their humiliating conduct ever since the 2020 election.
All those guilty of continuing the big lie, that the election was fraudulent, should at least be relieved of duty until they can be prosecuted for the insurrection of which they took part.
Since when do we compromise with crooks?
There is just a handful of Republicans in the entire Congress. The remaining seats on the right side of the isle are occupied by retrumplicans.
Retrumplicans have no use for laws or governing. Their only reason for existence is self gratification,and at the alter of the worlds greatest con man, d trump.
So forget about bipartisanship in the Old terminology.
It’s up to the Democrats and the one or two or three or four Republicans left in Congress to govern for America and if that means passing bills through reconciliation or possibly altering the filibuster then so be it. No need to waste any more talk on bipartisanship.
Let ’em know, HR1 is the way to go!
BUT, WHAT ABOUT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE?
The Electoral College has never been anything but a convenience for the minority.
It’s unfair and undemocratic. There is no place for the Electoral College in a democratic republic. Democracy beckons the abolishment of the Electoral College!
Come on Congress, open eyes, try to get to work more than 193 days this year, and rid American voters of the ridiculous burden of the Electoral College.
And while your at it.
MAKE THE FILIBUSTER MAKE SENSE!
In Chicago, I like the Wrigley building-even though he leaned to the right. I like the Tribune tower even though the newspaper leans right. I like the Hancock building unaware of John’s politics.
Every time I look North from Clark and Lake…..and see the Trump building with it’s big sign, it’s like getting kicked in the stomach
I don’t know if a campaign to remove it would succeed, but I would jump on board if enough folks felt as I do.

It’s their power grid. Not ours.
FEMA doing what it can to keep Texans from freezing is the right and human thing to do, Supplying equipment to support their grid emergency should be on the cheapskates responsible for it.
Please understand, it’s NEGLIGENCE that caused the blackout, NOT THE WEATHER.
Anybody that still thinks trump won the election either lives in a cave or is batshit crazy. Believe that.
