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.
We shared our first soup( home made chicken noodle ) of Rocktober with the homeless in our neighborhood. They all got a hand made lavender scented votive candle too. They really like the candles.
What’s taking so long? He’s a cancer on the post office. He’s got to be removed!
These political antics make me sick. These politicians makes me sick. And, I don’t really have anything nice to say, so I better not say anything at all.
Damn, I wish I could fix it. I don’t want to be a complainer when the future could be so bright and exciting if only more people would come together.
I don’t know how to help the naysayers join the fun. It hurts to witness all the hate and division.
All I know to do for sure, is VOTE.
I want a party that rocks, and I’m far from alone. It’s time to shake off your Bashful Ben Goody Two Shoes persona. In fact it’s way past time for you to aquire a backbone.
Why the hell aren’t you backing your party leader like the Republicans back theirs?
When are you going to fight for voting rights and save the country I love?
Shake it up. Get off the slug boat and ROCK THE CONGRESS!
Dear President Biden, please get over your pride and pass the infrastructure 2.2 trillion dollar bill.
The retrumplicans and the few Republicans aren’t going to play your game.
So please just get with the program, the one you outlined when you got elected. That’s what we want.
Honestly, we care more about taking advantage of this brief opportunity to to “build back better” a strong democracy of which the people of the United States of America can be proud.
You’re the only one that can bring this country back together and it’s not by playing footsy with the people trying to destroy it.
GET TOUGH, STAND TALL, and LEAD.
Joe Manchin, you make me sick. Why don’t you go down to Mar-a-Lago and kiss the big fat orange thing where the sun don’t shine.
Join the other power hungry anarchists and quit your excuses.
Get with saving the democracy and help the true dem’s defeat autocracy.
And take your grandstanding gal pal with you.
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.
Are American journalists turning into European paparazzi? Looks to me as though they’re acting like wild hyenas on carrion.
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!
