    imho
    Abbot’s “I’m livid” is a possible emotion. Let him undo the systematic loosening of guns laws in TX on his watch. Following every massacre republicans further deregulate guns.

    Our children go on paying with their lives because adults put guns first. A father on air said he merely wants to pass on the ‘joy of shooting guns’ to his children. His kids may be OK for now but the leading cause of child death in America is guns. There is no nice friendly gun in this world. (Propaganda…assault weapons in the laps of little babies.) In all the brutality Dems may be missing a personal, detailed vision of what they want to happen and how, while the warmongers on the other side have wasted no time acting out theirs. No mercy for the shredded bodies of children lining the pockets of politicians and gun manufacturers. The sports arena announcements are fantastic, what can we do to stay with it like a dog with a bone. And may David Hogg’s 2nd March For Our Lives go global.

    Opinion: Student Loan Forgiveness Is A Key Step In Promoting A Democratic Culture Of Mutual Aid

    “Social, political, and economic democracy depend on people having access to higher education and the opportunity to fully cultivate their abilities so they can contribute to the public good.

    At root, too, in seeing higher education as a public good that should be available to all is a recognition of our interdependence and thus hopefully, too, of our need to act out of spirit of mutual aid.
    Cultivating this ethos, this value, of mutual aid, sadly, is sorely lacking in American society today and, arguably, this lack has much to do with the erosion of and threat to American democracy.”

    “Forgiving student loans is an opportunity for the nation to create policy rooted in a recognition of the importance of investing in one another for our collective benefit and well-being and for the sustenance of our democracy.”

      He says:

      “The 2nd Amendment says ‘A Well Regulated Militia.’

      If you think that applies to citizens—.”

      This veteran says what we keep repeating. Why does no one follow up and act on it, because the answer to this catastrophe is right there in the wording of the very short 2nd Amendment.

  50. May 29, 2022 at 12:00 pm

    How A Comma Gave Americans The Right To Own Guns

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State (,) the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    “Some historians even claim that many states ratified a version of the Second Amendment with only two commas, not three.”

    (https://www.businessinsider.com/the-comma-in-the-second-amendment-2013-8)

    —-That second comma got finagled by the the Supreme Court in order to strike down the strictest gun control law, which was D.C.’s ban on handguns.

    • May 29, 2022 at 12:35 pm

      imo,

      The 2nd amendment is not Church, not the Bible, which btw has been altered many times through political regimes. Evangelists are now duped to believe that guns represent ‘faith’.

      We’re being groomed to think everyday mass shooting and gun death is part of the furniture. So grateful to the Veteran above who explains how seriously a firearm in the retired hands of trained personnel is taken by the U.S. military. Yet a boy coddled by the gun industry bought two rapid fire killing machines on his
      18th birthday.

      Can we pls now publicly debate this deadly toxic amendment which 99% of the world does not have?

    If Mr Petro, 62, wins he will be the first left-wing president in the country’s history. He has promised to fix the country’s deep inequalities and switch its reliance on fossil fuels to clean technology.

    The unexpected result for Mr Hernández, a 77-year-old construction magnate with a populist touch reminiscent of the US’s ex-President Donald Trump, marks an upset for the traditional right.

    He campaigned on an anti-corruption ticket, despite being under investigation for allegedly favouring a company his son had lobbied for.

    Memorializing the Veteran

    The mother can still feel the touch of his hand
    His wife can still hear his breathing next to her
    The children remember the joyous morning kisses
    The grandparents are lost, without him

    He won’t return but then he never really left them
    He lives in their memories, in their photographs
    In their hearts, in their parades

    His service was to a country of people
    Sometimes not paying attention to his patrol
    Often he served aboard a ship of fools
    But he knew the goal. He knew the goal.

    We remember. We remember.

      thanks Sheila.

      Here’s what got me today.
      The TV media saying the nra: “Wants a strict interpretation”.
      Um no.

      The loud but tiny nra membership is NOT interpreting the 2nd Amendment “Strictly”.

      We just keep being shown the version of it they want us to see.
      Firstly it says “A Well Regulated Militia”.
      Nothing about regular citizens.

      Are we hypnotized?
      Are we afraid to have that debate with them? Too ‘sacred’ for you? Are we intimidated?
      The Founding Father’s never saw a bullet, magazine, or an assault rifle, for starters.

      We let the gun lobby spread their B-S at the COST OF MILLIONS of precious American lives.

      5 million people, including manufacturers, don’t get to Terrorize the Universe because they like their version better. Media stop propping them up and let’s talk 2nd Amendment at last.

    “The real hoax:
    In 1959, according to a Gallup poll, 60 percent of Americans favored banning handguns;
    that dropped to 41 percent by 1975 and 24 percent in 2012.
    By early 2008, according to Gallup,
    73 percent of Americans believed the Second Amendment
    “guaranteed the rights of Americans to own guns” outside the militia.”

    —-Dystopia normalized. 400 million guns but they want something more…what is it? Pls stay on hitting gun manufacturers with liability laws. Money is what they live for while we are expendable, utterly worthless.
