    Why must I be first all the time? At times my greatness bores me.

    Fortunately or unfortunately, the Muslim Community is asked to solve this alone.
    So my question is the consensus now that Racism is now going to be solved by Whites alone?
    My beef always is inconsistency and accountability that is always placed on the OTHERS, and hardly ever asked of the Majority in USA.
    The last I checked;
    United
    States of
    America
    UNITED, is the Operative word.

      Huh? So you let them purchase guns to give them a false sense of security?

        We let them buy guns because that’s what we’ve ALWAYS done! And if we change it to disallow them buying weapons….THEY WILL KNOW SOMETHING’S UP!! The fucking horror! So let’s keep the carnage going as it is now…so they’ll be able to buy tons of guns and ammo and not know anything is up. My damn head hurts. I’m going to go tutor children that REALLY WANT TO LEARN!

      At the very least that Prosecutor needs to resign and if Rahm was in on the cover-up he should go as well. There is no reason that the investigation had to take over 400 days for charges. Had the courts not ruled to release that video that monster that calls himself a police officer would still have his cushy desk job. Everyone of those police at the scene that night corroborated that shooters lying story. They are as corrupt as corrupt can be!

    Yup …. almost all of it totally unnecessary, including the countless 100s of 1000s of innocents killed ….

    Fear & Lies are their, as always been, what the weapons profiteers skillfully & persistently leverage ….

      in the past, a few lawyers have decided to use obscure laws to deal with a persistent societal problem;

      as far as I am concerned, the NRA, gun manufacturers and other organizations that constantly push guns into the communities are no different from the mafia;

      when the law has been focused on a specific mafia family, eventually the people with the law on their side have gained the upper hand;

      but such law-based activities need lawyers who singularly focus on the legal target and of course it takes time.

      I am looking forward to the day when the full force of the law can be focused on the gun-pushing criminals who make huge profits at the expense of the blood of so many people

    Hello Chips, I’m terribly sorry I had to go attend to an emergency with my furnace. Had to suspend writing. So I’ll save my piece for another day.

      Thanks for posting this chart– we need just this kind of data to help educate folks who are stuck in a pox bubble.

      this is some of the kind of research the gun lobby has blocked by buying congress to make laws barring all gun-related studies

    Ugggh. The equivalent to the US Tea Party in France is called the National Front and it is winning the regional elections in France based on today’s election reporting with early results. Their Donald Trump is Marine Le Pen who leads that party.

    “The message from the first round of France’s regional elections is simple and unequivocal – once again the far right has come out on top.
    For the third time in a year and a half, Marine Le Pen can legitimately say that her National Front is the country’s most popular party.
    It is an astonishing performance for a party that until very recently was regarded as beyond the pale.

    The government’s response to the Paris attacks has boosted President Hollande’s approval ratings – they have soared more than 30 percentage points to 50%. However, this surge in personal popularity has so far not translated into greater approval for Mr Hollande’s Socialist Party, which is trailing with about 22%.”

    remembering how eloquently FLOTUS spoke out against fear during the 2008 campaign;

    her speech that day on being tired of politicians (gop) using fear, to manipulate people’s votes, is one for the history books;

    during this time when gop is once again trying to use fear, it would be a great thing to share that video with others who have either forgotten or have never seen it
