Death toll in Odessa shooting rises to 7, a 17-month-old child among those injured – NBC News

The bought-and-paid-for subsidiary of the NRA, Texas governor Greg Abbott, when on political spin this day after the tragic shooting. He claimed that they had passed new laws to help stem the epidemic of gun shootings in Texas oh, yes they did pass gun laws but gun laws that make it easier to carry a gun in public and gave more access to guns not the less. It’s disheartening to have these things happen to us as a collective society as often as they happen and all I hear is thoughts and prayers. We the voters need to take control of our government. Enough is enough is what the parkland kids said and I cannot agree with them more.when 90% of Democrats and 71% of Republicans want common Sense gun reform and nothing is happening this is an issue that both parties need to address. I’m sorry, I love President Obama, but the Democrats did not have the backbone to pass the gun laws we need in our country. The problem is that once the Democrats leave office, because they’re voted out, the Republicans come in and push everything back to where it was if not making it worse. Case in point look what Trump has done to our environmental protections!

Trump, Moscow Mitch McConnell and the Republicans have blood on their hands.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld exploring primary challenge against Trump – POLITICO

Historically Presidents that are challenged is a primary do not fare well.

What you up to this news is making my day. If Trump has to defend against the Republican it means that you’ll have to the Bates the shaman and spend lots of money to make sure he gets the nomination.

Thank you Bill Weld, you are a true Patriot.

Ron DeSantis Outed as Administrator of Racist, Conspiracy-Sharing Facebook Page – Miami New Times

Dog whistles are meant to be heard by A specific group. In the case of Ron DeSantis that group is racists. if you don’t believe that then you haven’t seen him in action. With the unexpected win by an African-American for the Democratic nomination for Florida governor Ron DeSantis has gone on the offencive. And his offencive is a objectionable. The governor of Florida like the president of the United States needs to be the leader of all the people not just those who vote for you. And yet that seems to be a recurring theme with the Republican Party. Do things for your base and ignore The rest of the country because they didn’t vote for you. That’s not how government was supposed to work and shame on the GOP for making it so.

North Carolina Governor Tries to Step Back From Bias Law – NYTimes

Way too little and way too late. If the governor of North Carolina thinks that he’s half measures are going to help his fate become whole again he is so wrong. The pressure will be kept on him and the legislature who voted in this terrible law that discriminates.

Mississippi OKs religious bill decried as anti-LGBT-CNN

As each of these Republican run States passed legislation that hurts LGBT populations they are proving that Republicans should not have power right now. Everyone now knows someone who is lgbtq and this legislation is unpopular Across the Nation. These governors justify these Draconian bills by saying they are protecting religion. Two problems one is that religion is not under assault. And two they are putting into law discrimination against a segment of the population. I believe this is going to come back and bite them and bite them very hard.

Here Are the World’s 19 Most Disappointing Leaders – Fortune

I have to agree that they’re very much on point. There are a couple of people on this list that I like but just because I like them doesn’t mean they did a good job. But number one is the one that puts the most joy in my heart. I hope Rick Snyder gets recalled and arrested in either order.

Maryland Gov Hogan(R) To Consider Voting For Someone Else If Trump Gets Nomination«CBS

I think we all know who that other person will be. He’s a shrewd politician with a 61% approval rating in Maryland. And this is one of the many people that have said this or members of the Republican Party. I congratulate him on his good sense.
