I admit I am anti-guns mostly due to traumatic experiences, but that doesn’t mean I want to abolish the 2nd Amendment. But I have a real problem with open carry and men, and women, who walk around showing how tough they are by carrying a gun. It’s obvious doing this is meant to intimidate andContinue reading “Guns as Phallic Substitute”
Taking cops out of making traffic stops makes so much sense. Too many police officers are white supremacist racists, just looking for an excuse to attack a person of color. As long as police departments don’t do background checks before officers are hired and trained, events of black citizens being shot will continue. Get policeContinue reading “Get police out of the business of traffic stops”
Should we have to record cops on our phones to make sure they do things right and legal? That they treat everyone with respect? That they don’t automatically shoot some due to fear and hate? Do we really have to allow guns in the hands of everyone?
“On this day in 1999, the Columbine High School shooting took place in Littleton, Colorado, killing 13 victims. At the time, it was the fifth most deadly mass shooting in recent American history, but due to other massacres in the past two decades, it’s now tied for twelfth. The tragedy sparked a national debate aboutContinue reading “Columbine Tragedy”
A conspiracy theory rumor circulates the right-wing social media sites that warn people not to get Covid 19 vaccines because they will change their DNA.

Day 92: “An American achievement.””
“Right now is a difficult time for Black America. Last summer, we saw a massive wave of Black Lives Matter protests across the nation and an equally massive spotlight on systemic racism in policing—we called it a racial awakening. Then, in the midst of a nationally televised trial over the Black death that arguably sparkedContinue reading “Black Teen Fatally Shot by Tennessee Police. Initial Reports Says He Shot Officer, Later Says Bullet Did Not Come From Teen’s Gun”
VP Harris just threw down the gantlet to McConnell and said they are moving forward with the infrastructure bill. She said they will not take it slow and be obstructed just to get nowhere. Either you get on board or you miss the train… it’s not waiting for you… Ken G @kennethgootz Republicans seem to haveContinue reading “Twitter Tweets I Like”
Between mass shootings and black people being killed by police, you have to wonder why and what you can do about it. Guns and the easy access to get them are just partially to blame. But what is most to blame is attitudes. White supremacy, the selfishness of conservative Christians who are so far awayContinue reading “Too Many Deaths”
