Not Even ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ From NRA—Just Boasts About Its Legislative Wins – The Daily Beast

First we declared Al Qaeda a terrorist organization. Then we declared the Taliban a terrorist organization and later we declared Isis a terrorist organization. And if you want to add to the rhetoric our current president also calls Iran a terrorist organization.

isn’t it about time that we declare the national rifle association a terrorist organization. It is by all counts why there are so many guns in our country. It is why we have 1300 people dead from mass shootings this year. It’s why we have almost 300 mass shootings this year when the next closest country has three!

video games are not the problem and making new ridiculous laws to put people away becausethey are suspected of having mental health issues. It’s a stomach and it starts with the NRA. When the NRA started in the 60s it was a gun safety organization and now it’s a gun distribution and glorification association.

they’re not even giving lip service to thoughts and prayers anymore and instead are just boasting about the fact that they have been able to pass 10 laws recently that have made guns easier to get. Gunman in Dayton, not Toledo, Ohio had 100 magazine rounds on his assault rifle! Are you telling me that hunters need a hundred magazine rounds?

The NRA is a terrorist organization.

Three NRA board members resign from organization – TheHill

The NRA is a terrorist organization. Therefore it’s for members are terrorists so those who are resigning as far as I’m concerned are nothing but rats jumping off of the sinking NRA ship.

They have sucked every bit of money out of their membership and now they are fleeing like vermin. this was the first time that after a mass shooting Wayne LaPierre did not come out from his crypt to tell us that it’s not time for gun control or common sense gun reform. It’s never time for them because they live off of blood money.

anyone who supports the NRA is a terrorist including the current occupant of the White House who seem to be quite mom about the fact that his rhetoric caused another mass shooting. If it had been a Muslim or person of color he would have been on his Twitter soapbox screaming away but instead he kept quiet.

the sooner the NRA disappears the better this country will be. All I’m sure there will be some other organization that will take its place because there is always somebody out to make another dollar off of the blood of individuals but it’s going to be rebuilding itself from the ground up and hopefully we will have the gumption, as Americans, to finally do what New Zealand, Australia and the rest of the Free World has done; make sure that guns stay out of the hands of people who should not have them.

Rand Paul blocks Senate from approving 9/11 victim compensation fund – TheHill

I don’t wish harm on anyone. But I hope that the first responders who show up at Rand Paul’s home if it catches on fire have a long discussion as to whether or not there’s enough money in the budget to offset the cost of fighting his fire.first responders came to the World trade Center site without even a moment of hesitation about their well-being. And yet this supposed doctor doesn’t even want to give them the benefit of what they have earned in their service to our country.

Shame on Rand Paul.

Google removes conversion therapy app from Play Store – The Verge

Honestly when I saw the report yesterday that Google had not removed this hateful app from its ecosystem I was very very disappointed. I thought that Google’s motto was Do no harm. I went to the Google play Store and reported the app for the many violations that it commits. It turns out Google did listen to the lgbtqi community and did the right thing. At the end of the day hatred of others it’s not something that as humans we should strive for. Instead being welcoming to everyone is how humanity will prosper.

I find it so ironic that when one of these anti-gay individuals finds out that they have a son or daughter that is gay there way of looking at things turn around. you would think that these people that espoused religious beliefs would understand that we are all God’s children. so thank you Google for doing the right thing, albeit a little late.

Democrats want answers from DeVos over handling of Education inspector general – CNNPolitics

This is what happens when an incompetent person buys their way into an important and vital Department. I truly believe that the Republicans want to dumb down the general population. They have cut school funding as if it’s more fat and yet we need our schools to be stellar. We need to compete with Germany and France and China and what we are doing is a crime to this generation.

I don’t know about you but I remember how I went to school and the the bands that were placed on me regarding learning an instrument, a language, broadening my scope of education. Is civics even taught in school anymore? My Lord I was in Texas and I had a full year of Texas history in 6th grade. this is criminal and the Republicans are the criminals.

So Betsy DeVos is faced with having to return money ordered by court because for-profit schools were overcharging students. She tried everything not to return this money which was rightfully the students. She needs to go but so does Trump.

In the wake of the shutdown, Pelosi’s public support grows – MSNBC

The best thing that’s happened to the present occupant of the White House lately has been Governor Ralph Northam.

That’s being said let’s talk about Nancy Pelosi. The shade that he caved would be such an understatement. He puts a country or through 35 days of uncertainty for nothing. He got the same exact if not worse deal that’s he would have had if the government had not shut down. He is the worst negotiator ever. this is the man who got mad at President Obama when he announced that we were going to do a measure to pull out from Iraq he said Trump tweets that we’re going to pull out of Syria completely and take half of our troops out of Afghanistan. Oh yes Mr. President that’s exactly the stealth approach you had been talking about. Announce to our hose especially Isis everything we’re going to be doing so they can make their plans for takeover. You’re making your boss Putin very happy because he’s wanted full reign over the middle East forever and now you’re giving it to him. I wonder what he’s blackmailing you with to get that.

Nancy Pelosi rocks and Trump sucks.

Foxconn: It’s Not Building Wisconsin Factory Despite getting $4 Billion Deal From Taxpayers

President Trump during the campaign said that the United States would be tired of all the winning that he would bring to the country. I am tired but it’s not because of the winning it’s because of all the losing. We put money out to these corporations and then one after the other day back down but keep the money. how about the carrier plant that he talked so much about when he was in transition. or the Ford factory, there’s no point in my going on and on.

He’s a terrible deal maker and everyone knows it except for him. Maybe he does know it and maybe Seth Meyers has something when he does that sticks about the small voice of insecurity in Trump’s head.

All I know is I’m tired of losing.

Steve Bannon disinvited from New Yorker Festival after backlash – NBC News

This is such a hard one. If you listen to Bill Maher he’ll tell you that doing this kind of thing is not only a form of censorship but it elevates those people we dislike even more by giving them more attention. If you look at it from Jim Carrey or Judd Apatow’s one of you they don’t want to be on stage with a hate monger. So what does one do? I guess that’s the question for the ages. I am not comfortable with either scenario and I wish our politics were not so divisive but they are. And the man who is one of the architects of this divisiveness is Steve Bannon and so I say give him more to say about the liberal or the left to his core supporters which are not going to change and keep him up stages as much as we possibly can.

MSNBC legal expert: Cohen flipping puts Trump ‘one witness away’ from catastrophe – TheHill

When you live in a den of Thieves who do you accuse when something is stolen?

I have never understood why anyone would like Rudy Giuliani. He was an unlikeable mayor who did a terrible job at running the city. And his time since 9/11 has been anything but spectacular. Now, this drooling excuse for an attorney he’s trying to make what is obviously a crime into a nothingburger, to quote one of the future co-conspirators.

I’ve said it before, Michael Cohen has no pedigree but even a liar like Michael corn can be corroborated by a second Witness. All of those people at the Trump Tower pre-meeting are subject to be interrogated and perhaps even be charged and one of them is going to flip. And that one would be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, in this case the camel’s back is the Trump Administration. And I don’t want to hear anything about a president Pence, he was in charge of the transition and therefore neck deep in the crud of this Administration.

Prosecutors in Michael Cohen case piecing together shredded documents from raid – NBC News

I am a blogger, and I am in no way a reporter. So what I say is purely speculation. But I can see in my head what must have happened in the minutes as the feds swarms into Michael Collins offices and homes. Shredding of documents must have been frenetic. So it’s not much of a surprise that the federal authorities are having problems putting the shredded materials back together. Unfortunately for Michael corn, who by the way is a terrible attorney, the federal government has Apple resources back together shredded documents. A good attorney would never have documents that needed to be shredded before a federal raid.
