My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
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.
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.
In what can only be called the bigots spring another anti-lgbt bill goes in front of another southern governor. Let’s take Tennessee off of our bucket list of places to visit if this bill goes into law. We may not have a vote in Tennessee but we can vote with our money.

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. http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/05/us/mississippi-governor-signs-religious-freedom-bill/index.html
