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.
Threatening to veto a bill is how this corrupt White House makes sure that the turtle, Mitch McConnell doesn’t bring a bill to the floor of the Senate. Mitch McConnell’s application of the power of congress is unprecedented. basically says he won’t bring a bill to the floor of the Senate that the president is going to veto. What the hell?
As the power of the NRA wins I don’t understand the reasoning behind not wanting something that even 72% of NRA members want. We’re not talking about banning weapons. We’re not talking about taking people’s guns away. We’re talking about making sure that people who should not have guns don’t get them. Do we let everyone wants to drive a car drive a car? No. It’s common sense.
Hence the term common Sense gun control.
The blood of the 45,000 people who die each year from gun violence in our country and especially that of the children and the unarmed women is on the hands of the man in the White House and his turtle.
I’m not sure if this is the death throws of an organization that no longer has support even from its own members or is it Pure evil? A little of both maybe.
The new leader of the NRA is Oliver North. Oliver North is used to being subpoenaed because he was right in the middle of the Iran-Contra scandal that play the rate in ministration. Oliver North is not a patriot, the way I see him he is the opposite of a patriot.
How can any organization justify this behavior? I can explain it to you very easily and 5 letters, Trump. In a week where we saw Rodger Stone put a crosshairs, oh I’m sorry I Celtic symbol, over the head of the judge overseeing his case is it surprising that the NRA magazine puts Nancy Pelosi and Gabby Giffords in it’s crosshairs? For those who had been under a rock for the last decade, Gabby giffords was brutally assaulted during a campaign event in Arizona where she was the Congressperson. so you can imagine how onerous seeing this must be to her and her loved ones. She almost died, we watched it on television. And now this despicable organization has the audacity to do this to her.
and it’s last filing the NRA said that it’s about to go bankrupt. As far as I’m concerned it is not only bankrupt fiscally but morally. women 72% of NRA members think that sensible background checks are okay, this organization still holds almost a black male kind of hold over right-wing members of Congress. Each time we have a mass shooting in this country all we hear is prayers for the loved ones. No more, enough is enough, now let’s talk about banning assault weapons, silencers, bump stocks and anything else that is not part of a hunter’s normal Arsenal. Do Hunters use handguns? I don’t think so. Of course I’ve never hunted, it seems absolutely barbaric way of killing a defenseless creature. Yes we meet and yes that’s barbaric and the country is weaning itself off of it.
Dnra needs to be abolished, rubbed out like app parked out cigarettes. This organization used to be an organization that promoted gun safety and now it goes the opposite end of the spectrum and promotes gun fire on victims like Gabby Giffords.
Me thinks not all is peachy on the Republican side of the Senate.
Chuck grassley is not one of my favorite people. Chuck Grassley understands what McConnell has just set off. This is much worse than what Chuck Schumer did when he change the rules in the senate for confirmations to a majority as opposed to a 60-vote needed. Chuck Grassley understands that there’s going to be a democratic presidents maybe in the near future. Chuck Grassley understands that this is a president that is going to be disastrous for the Republican Party. sure the Republicans cheat but when they do they open the door for others to do the same.
I look forward to a democratic Congress and President. But if there’s a Democratic president she can declare National emergencies for things that are actually National emergencies. Something like climate change or gun control.
This false emergency is a smoke screen to hide behind for the Trump Administration and all of the problems that is besieging them.
Tires to the midterms I was telling everyone I was moving to Montreal. I speak French fluently and I’ve lived in warm climates all my life so cold is not such a big deal to me actually would be interesting. That being said the United States of America is my country and I love it dearly. I don’t want to leave. So when the blue Wave happen that cemented my staying in the country. But if I were thirty something I would highly consider moving to Canada because they actually have a middle-class that’s growing. Canada has the lowest handgun rate in this hemisphere. 65 million people live in Canada and I believe last year there were about 135 murders, think about how many murders happened in your town in just one here.
I was telling one of my good friends today that if this president has done anything for this country that is good he has made it important to all of us that we become civically active and vote because if not we will be in another nightmare scenario like we are right now.
We are in an upside down world where Americans wants to leave the country that everyone wants to live in and you can thank the Tangerine nightmare in the white house for that.
The problem with fake news is if you listen to it all the time you start believing it. If you listen to the pablum and hatred that is spewed on Fox all the time you start believing it. Sheriff Steve Israel riled up the right because he said that military assault weapons should not be in the hands of anyone in this country other than the military. He said that he’s a hunter but he doesn’t understand the need for a military assault weapon if you’re truly a hunter. That got the the GOP right-wingers very upset. So, they did what they do best, create fake news. They posted videos of a woman claiming to have been raped by Steve Israel and then forced to have an abortion. She was an actress she didn’t know what she was talking about and apologizes. but you know that Fox News is never going to say anything about this because it doesn’t fit their opinion. And the problem is that news should not be opinionated it should be facts and that seems to have escaped for those who watch Fox News. It’s funny the people who scream fake news the most are the ones who create it. It’s an old adage that the thief has the most locks on his home.
Well, the irony is that Fox News is truly fake news.
Now even our gun loving friends at the NRA have had enough of him. I wonder if his bromance with Ted Cruz is going to end now that he has shown himself to be not just racist but anti-semitic. Although he may just fit in better with the views of Donald Trump. Ted Nugent is a lucky man he has two candidates that match his views on the world. AVB
I thought the stance of the NRA was that guns made anywhere that they were in safer. I guess that’s true except at their own convention. Working guns will not be allowed at the NRA convention. Hypocrisy at its height. Perhaps they were scared that one of their gun crazed members will start shooting. I’m scared about that all the time. The NRA needs to be shamed over this. What next, no more guns Chipotle? AVB
