gun control, fugitabutit
The recent shooting and massacre of seventeen at MSG High School has resulted in a groundswell of calls for sensible gun regulations. A nineteen year old maniac bought an AR-15 rifle easier than he could buy a six pack of beer and killed three adults and fourteen students. Since the tragedy, there have been numerous demonstrations and calls for politicians to show some courage and fix the loopholes that allow individuals, mentally ill or not, you purchase weapons of war.
Well, guess what! Ain't nothing going to happen. The cowardly politicians, owned by the NRA and claiming their second amendment rights, are going to do as they have before after Sandy Hook, Las Vegas, and other massacres. NOTHING! These gutless wonders along with the PIECE OF SHIT, Trump, who accepted thirty million or more from the NRA will posit meaningless fixes which will go nowhere; and they don't want them to.(GOP Politics)
There is only one way to reducing gun violence in America and that is to put meaningful restrictions on gun purchases, for instance licensing, and outlaw AR-15 rifles. Neither of these fixes can happen until people wakeup and vote the worthless Republican Party out of office, everywhere. And also any wimpy-ass Democrats.
Marches and speeches are great for raising awareness of the problem but voters have to keep in mind that the Republican Party doesn't give a damn about voters. They care about donors, only. Hence, if you really want change, get off your ass and vote them out of office and put someone in who has commonsense about gun safety.
U.S. is broke, thanks gop
For those of you who can do basic math, the deficit will rise one trillion dollars this year and the national debt reach Twenty Trillion Dollars or $249,000 for each American family, congratulations! (See article on home page). November 2016, sixty-three million Americans voted into office not just a criminal and a traitor in Trump, they also elected a party of hypocrites who claim to be responsible budget overseers and seeking to limit government spending. What they got was a group of thieves who have long believed that the working class were suckers and should pay for every war, disaster, and corporate welfare.
In December 2017, this august group of thieves passed a tax scam that lower the taxes to 21% on corporations, must of whom paid no taxes anyway and made their outrageous profits on slave labor, environmental destruction, and lax government regulation. Even before the scam was passed, we had natural disasters in Texas, California, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and Florida. All of these caused tens of billions of dollars in damage. And let us not forget the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq which waste a billion or two dollars per day. And then there is the opioid crisis which kills a hundred people per day and costs the nation seventy-eight billion, annually according to the CDC. Did I mention infrastructure which needs about two trillion dollars or more in improvement?
Now, anyone with a thumbnail of intelligence would forgo lowering taxes and would possibly consider making an effort to collect taxes from corporate tax evaders like Apple, GE, and countless others, or even raising them. How about ending loopholes, or stopping tax deductions for offshoring American jobs, or even restructuring trade deals that protect American jobs? I don't mean to be a radical anti-capitalist but it seems to me that commonsense should have prevailed. But as I have heard many times: commonsense is not that common.
So as a result in this monumental display of governing incompetence by the clown-in-office, Trump, and his sycophants in the Congress, America is broke and the responsibility lies with the sixty-three million fools who elected this garbage into office and the ninety million who did not even bother to vote because they believe voting makes no difference, and both sides are the same. REALLY! Your credit card is past due, fools.
