I want to cry.

Thinking of the children so recently in the news killed or injured by gunfire in what was once considered a non hostile environment.

I want to cry because the obvious cause of these deaths and injuries has been shuffled off as inconsequential and absurd.

There are dead people out there who shouldn't be dead. Parents grieving and children missing parents. All because there are guns in the hands or accessible to those who should not have them. It is time to do something here in America. Other countries have addressed this problem. Why can't we?

3. That's a fairly classic dick move right there.

No fair mourning anything unless you mourn everything. Is that about right ... dick?

4. Collateral damage from the War on Terror, Inc

8. I thought Liberals/Progressives and Democrats were supposed to be against war and death and stuff.

 

Apparently not, according to the hide.

11. Rep. James Lankford (R-OK), the fifth-ranking House Republican,

laid the blame for gun violence at the feet of an unusual suspect: the children of “welfare moms” who commit fraud.
