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.
If there’s one thing the current occupant of the White House response to is poll numbers. Fox News polls have always been favorable towards him and this must be quite a shock. You couple that with the fact that the stock market fell almost 900 points today, the stories about Mitch McConnell and Russia, the downright falling apart of our foreign policy across the world and you can see a president that’s now in a corner. usually he responds to this by making some Grand gesture which he never follows through with. My prediction is that he’s going to say that he is going to be the one to finally get some sort of law on the books to end gun violence but in the end he will say the Democrats did not agree to some odd thing that he had asked for and pulls away from the agreement.
This is been a week where you have seen him show signs of wear and tear. After not wanting to criticize the Chinese government for its atrocities on the people of Hong Kong today he said that they need to be humane to the people of Hong Kong. he picked the new fed chairman, and picked him, and today he attacked it mercilessly for not lowering interest rates. Does this man understand that interest rates are at an all-time low for an economy of this magnitude and that if it goes south the economy can only be boosted by interest rate adjustments down but if it’s at zero where do we go ? Give more money away from our Treasury?
There’s 550 days before the election so much can happen I just hope that he continues on his path of self-destruction because that’s the only way we’re going to get him out of the White House.
In the first 90 seconds before his normal show John Oliver set everything that needed to be said about what’s happening right now.
When I said on Twitter. The current occupant of the White House has blood on his hands I was locked out of my Twitter account for 12 hours. They call it Twitter jail I call it completely unfair. when Trump rants and rails on his Twitter account spewing hatred and racist views no one puts them in Twitter jail.
Is John Oliver I posted what he said tonight I guess if he were not a celebrity he would also be put away in Twitter jail.
There’s a disease in this country and there is no two ways around it. Even senator Pat Toomey asked that Mitch McConnell bring back the Senate to vote on common Sense gun reform. Then Mitch McConnell broke or injured his shoulder. I would like to see those x-rays.
Wawa on hiatus from Twitter although I’m not on there all that much, I watched the latest episode of elementary on CBS. Their story line right now is about someone who owns the biggest search engine who uses his data to look for those who might kill and preemptively kills them before they get a chance to do so. When Sherlock tries stop himhe’s confronted with the fact that this man is so powerful because he controls how the people of the world think of their politicians. Sound like anyone you might have heard of maybe somebody like Mark Zuckerberg or the now very cozy with the oval Office CEO of Twitter Dorsey.
I’m famously no longer on Facebook, Instagram and I had all intentions of leaving Twitter. I still might but then who would read this blog other than myself and that I consider that mental masturbation.
Since this is a place I can say what I feel well I truly believe that Trump, the GOP and the NRA have the hundreds of people’s blood on their hands that have died in mass shootings, all 291 so far this year.
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.
I’m a blogger, not an investigative reporter. But I’ve got a good sense for numbers. So let’s see 35 million dollars a year on lawyers, 42 million dollars a year to an advertising agency, 60 million dollars towards the campaign of Donald Trump. that’s a lot of money for one nonprofit organization!
The NRA went from a gun safety organization to an organization that protects mass murders and their perpetrators.
the NRA and gun rights organizations in the US love to say that their rights are inalienable under the second amendment. Have we ever looked at the wording of the second amendment? The first words are a “well regulated militia”, regulations are in the first few words of the amendment. It was never meant to be an all out flooding of the market with high capacity and armor piercing bullets. Military-style weapons should be in the hands of the military. their arguments make as much sense as saying that we all have the right to have our own private nuclear Arsenal.
And as far as these leaked documents, they’re coming from Oliver North, one of the sleaziest people that we have had to deal with since the Reagan Era. He was the guy who sold weapons 2 hide from Congress the funding of an illegal act. Wayne LaPierre you go to bed with dogs you’re going to wake up covered in fleas.
The NRA has become a merchant of death and a very corrupt one at that.
I’m not a psychiatrist I don’t even play one on TV, but this man and his ability to spread lies and false information is beyond the pale.
We’re at a tipping Point. I truly believe the country is ready to go back to normality. The NRA sent out a four-page fundraising letter a couple of days ago saying that they’re about to go bankrupt. I hope that they go bankrupt because they’re morally bankrupt. We see that even the Supreme Court is now siding with gun safety advocates. So one by one we are chipping away at this evil empire which has had a grip on our country. Look I know we’re not New Zealand but they do have a gun loving society. It’s not in their constitution and maybe that’s what we need to change. No not maybe we need to change our Constitution and get rid of the stupid amendment. It was written at a time when the government had muskets and the people had muskets and so if the government went crazythe citizenry had a way to defend itself. I don’t think they envisioned a world where the government has tanks, atomic bombs, cruise missiles and the list goes on. All the AR-15s in the world could not do anything to hold our government accountable. so I don’t understand the need for this amendment anymore.
We have more guns in our country then we have people. I don’t own a gun, I’ve never even held one so to me this is just an illness that needs to be cured.
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.
