Does Right To Own Guns Trump Right To Live?

This is the core belief of avid gun owners, of which they may not be consciously aware. Guns were created to kill. That is their use, their intent, the reason for their creation, to take or maim a living being. Inanimate target shooting is a higher evolution of their existence, but make no mistake killing is their intended purpose of existence.

Gun right defenders are telling those who choose not to participate in the ownership of guns that their right to own a device created specifically to kill trumps our right to live our lives. That is crazy-making thinking. Intentionally killing or harming a living breathing being is not a Right. Rights are based on life-affirming actions, not life-denying actions. Attack, in any form, is a life-denying action.

This current Gun-Frenzy is a hoarding illness, but with deadly consequences. It is an addiction, an addiction that is tightly bound with violence and fear. It is a false belief, a false belief that one has the "Right" to kill for any reason, a false belief that a gun will inevitably keep you safe.

The Right to Live trumps the "Right" to kill. The Right To Live trumps the "Right" to own guns.

In Peace there is no need for guns. Peace is the only true safety. It is going to take a lot of individual work casting off false beliefs, but We Can Live Together In Peace.

We got the message
I heard it on the airwaves

Though you know you can't stop it
When they start to play
You're gonna get out the way

The politics of dancing
The politics of ooh feeling good
The politics of moving, aha
If this message's understood

A Must-Listen for Conservative Christians...

https://m.

"In The Name Of God" Ziggy Marley

In the name of god you kill in the name of your god
In the name of god you conquered in the name of your god

All religion should be wiped out
So that people may just live
What divides us is an illusion
Made up by men in their confusion

In the name of god you kill in the name of your god
In the name of god you conquered in the name of your god
In the name of god you hate in the name of your god
In the name of god you boast in the name of your god

Spoke of love no one would listen
Seems everyone's trying to prove something
Starting over may be the best thing
So stop the bombs and let's begin

Cause this war no one can win and it seems I'll never learn
Oh this war no one can win well it seems I'll never learn

In the name of god you kill in the name of your god
In the name of god in the name of your god you conquered
In the name of god in the name of your god

All religion should be wiped out
Save the people stand and live
What divides us is an illusion
Made up by men in their confusion

In the name of god you kill in the name of your god
In the name of god you conquered in the name of your god
In the name of god you boast in the name of your god
In the name of god you hate in the name of your god

In the name of your god, why do you kill?, why do you hate?, in the name of god, in the name of god

This is who "they" are...

https://m.

"It's like a normal times square day on 42nd street
I feel like trashing some windows and crunching some feet
I watch society crumble and I just laugh (hee hee)
They soon will see what it's like to be the other half

But I'm trying
Said I'm trying to forget
And it ain't happened yet

I musta woke up this morning with a bug up my ass
I think I'll just haul off and belt the next jerk that I pass
My old man says I'm just a stoned little punk
But he keeps himself a pistol and he's always drunk

I know
Something's gonna give

Pretty soon
I know it
Something's gonna give
I wanna live
I wanna mess thing whole world around
Go on and poison all the water, use up all the air
Blow your stupid heads off, see if I could care
Put me down but don't blame me for what you did
'cause inside everyone is a heavy metal kid

I was a sweet little kid once
Now I'm a full grown crank
And when I die I'll probably come back as a sherman tank
I know that I could make this world so peaceful and calm
If I could only get my hands on a hydrogen bomb"

The inner mind of a violence addict. Todd nails it!

It's The Era Of The Slumlord

Many of us did not grow up in slums. Now the entire country is getting a real life lesson of real time life in the slums. We are learning what a slumlord is and how they operate. They neglect infrastructure until it's time for them to sell the neglected property at a huge profit. While they are holding the property, they are extracting the highest amount of rent bearable, like payday loan sharks. They don't care if a tenant gets hurt or killed due to the dilapidated conditions the slumlords themselves caused. It's all about extracting profit without reinvesting in infrastructure. Then when it's the time they chose to gentrify the neighborhood, they sell the run-down property at an enormous profit. Making big profits on the way up and on the way down. That's how slumlords work.

GOP = SLUMLORDS

A message to haters of all types...

https://m.


"Put A Little Love In Your Heart"

Think of your fellow man
Lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heart
You see it's getting late
Oh, please don't hesitate
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place
For you and me
You just wait and see

Another day goes by
And still the children cry
Put a little love in your heart
If you want the world to know
We won't let hatred grow
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place
For you and me
You just wait and see, wait and see

Take a good look around
And if you're lookin' down
Put a little love in your heart
And I hope when you decide
Kindness will be your guide
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place
For you and me
You just wait and see
Put a little love in your heart
Each and every day
Put a little love in your heart
There's got to be a better way
Put a little love in your heart
Don't you think it's time we start
Put a little love in your heart

For Peace...

https://m.

For What It's Worth...Buffalo Springfield

There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking' their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Now, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

A plea for nature...

https://m.

"Natural Beauty"

On the roller coaster ride
That my emotions have to take me on
I heard a newborn baby cry
Through the night.

I heard a perfect echo die
Into an anonymous wall
of digital sound
Somewhere deep inside
Of my soul.

A natural beauty should be preserved
like a monument to nature
Don't judge yourself too harsh,
my love
Or someday you might find
your soul endangered
A natural beauty should be preserved
like a monument to nature.

Amazon
You had so much
and now so much is gone
What are you gonna do
With your life?

What a lucky man.
To see the earth
before it touched his hand
What an angry fool
To condemn.

One more night to go
One more sleep
upon your burning banks
A greedy man never knows
What he's done.

A natural beauty should be preserved
like a monument to nature
Don't start yourself too short,
my love
Or someday you might find
your soul endangered
A natural beauty should be preserved
like a monument to nature.

Went to the rodeo today
I saw the cowgirls
lined up on the fence
A brand new Chevrolet
A brand new pair of seamless pants.

We watched the moment of defeat
Played back over on the video screen
Somewhere deep inside
Of my soul.

A natural beauty should be preserved
like a monument to nature.

To: fizzgig, tree huggers, nature lovers
