Deadly Mass School Shooting

Post by screen glare » Fri May 18, 2018 6:13 pm

You know - when the Texas politicians grabbed the mic at today’s afternoon school shooting news conferece - I was able to finish each platitude they spouted before they could finish each sentence. Same old “thoughts and prayers”, “hug your child tonight”, “we’ll bounce back from this , Texas “ , blah, blah, blah.

Sickening bunch of A+ rated gun lobby pols - beholden to the NRA. Wake up Texans and tell ‘em to git. Vote ‘em out of office.

You know - when I saw a thread titled "Deadly Mass School Shooting" written by screen glare, I knew that he/she would blame the NRA before I even clicked on the link.

Gun lobby crackpots. NRA-owned politicians. blah, blah, blah.

Nothing to see here, folks. Just a minor statistical blip. On any day of the year, there are more than thirty gun homicides in the U.S.

bmw - you get it!

Wonderful!!

Deadly mass shootings at schools, as well as not so mass shootings at schools - is a massive problem here in the good ol’ USA. So many - they’re common place and expected.

And that means - wait for it - monotonous!

So when children are scared, suffer, and die of gunshot wounds - like ambushed soldiers in a war - the response is platitudes from politicians. Sooooo monotonous and memorized - they, too are the gear in which we are stuck. Never moving forward. Never changing the dangerous status quo.

Which is sickening. Shameful. Disrespectful. And the “bought-off by the gun selling lobby” idle mode - here in our gun and bullet-saturated land.

Gratifying to hear you get it, bmw. NRA is here to stay and so is its bloody money. Blah , blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Do not depart from the well-worn and written NRA script.

And it goes on... Between the religious fanaticism, paranoid gun assholes, extreme favoritism for billionaires, Corporate assholism, and celebration of stupidity. The USA has gotten to be so backwards, no reason everyone else laughs there ass's off at us.

They laugh at Donald Trump. And at the Anericans who voted for him.

I wouldn’t doubt it for a second... they wonder what the hell happened to us and how we became both stupid and anti-intellectual on one side of the aisle in particular...

You might want to get that knee jerk reflex checked out... it could cause health issues down the line if not caught and treated early...

So wait... You think that the left really is stupid and anti-intellectual?

That's not something one should say in the spirit of good discussion. You might want to breath deeply and count to ten NS... before you get the vapors over all this.

The knee jerk is to automatically start saying “the left”... whatever the hell that even is... it’s become some sort of conservative media catchall description of Democrats. But not all Democrats are lefties just like not all Republicans are righties. That said the Republicans have tacked far more to the right than the Democrats have to the left in recent years... not that any Conservative media will mention that mind you... it’s what they want.

You really won’t have a discussion will you? You just want to play the rightward version of SG and play semantics... how charming...

Bernie Sanders got 13,206,428 votes in the Democrat primary. Nuff said.

That’s 13 million out of an eventual 58-65 million who voted Democrat... I’d be willing to wager that Trump’s far right campaign went bigger in ratio... as did the centrist Clintons...

So in reality Sanders got a small portion of the party...

Yeah... uh... Clinton got about 16 million in the primary thanks in part to DNC Debbie and the gang stroking the voters for her.

Your logic fails.

So, even with the DNC machine firmly against Bernie and showering love and adulation on Hillary, 45% of Democrats serious enough to vote in a primary voted for a admitted socialist and left wing loon who may be a tad left of Marx.
