Why Congress does nothing about gun control.

I know there is a massive gun lobby and plenty of money is passed around, but I don't think that is all of it.
I am convinced they don't act on gun control because the people getting killed are not people they care about. They are perfectly happy to see attrition by gun. They can't vote if their dead and that suits congress just fine. Voter suppression that can't be undone. There will be no action until it effects them directly and then watch them shove the NRA to the curb.

I know this is cynical but the older I get the uglier the country looks. Nothing, anymore, seems to be divorced from politics and hatred of the masses.
If you disagree please do so without snark, it just gets old.

Ok who took my avatar?

I got up this morning and my avatar is MIA. I have tried to restore it but I can't seem to upload it. The size has not changed and the number of megabytes are the same but it won't upload. Help I have sent a message to admin but it looks like they don't read those messages.

If you have some kind of mojo around here, please help.

Prince Performs With Stevie Wonder At The White House

Prince performed some of his greatest hits at a weekend White House party for President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle.

But although guests put details on social media, White House spokesman Josh Earnest is refusing to confirm the "Purple Rain" singer's attendance.

Earnest says he has no details about the private event. A reported 500 lobbyists, corporate executives, celebrities and other guests attended.

Earnest says the Obamas threw the party "on their own dime." He didn't say how much it cost or what they would pay for.

A nice look at who this president is partying with. Disappointment doesn't begin to describe my feelings on a man I voted for twice.
