Death and Disco

Velveeta is not really sure what to do today. The pain of yet another mass shooting is sticking in her throat like a chicken bone on a spoon leaving her at a loss for words.

Generations

Good Morning.

America is still young enough that we measure our history in familial terms. It's still not uncommon to find folks that can trace historic events back to their grandparents, or great-grandparents having lived through it.

At Ask A Vet, we're starting to look at war in those terms. A young soldier that went over the berm in 1991 could now be watching his son or daughter overseas for the first, second, third, or multiple times.

That son or daughter, if they were there in 2003, could now be looking at children nearing the end of their high-school careers, and wondering what will become of them if they enlist.

17 Dead in Florida
Author: BobR    Date: 02/15/2018 14:03:29

It is sad, nauseating, disgusting, and depressing that I have to write this blog... again. Once again, a deadly school shooting dominates the news cycle. Seventeen kids died in Parkland Florida yesterday, in what might be the new Valentine's Day massacre. Once again, a person who showed the warning signs of being a threat was still allowed to have guns, especially the kind that have no place in our society.

Already this year, there have been 18 school shootings, and we are only 45 days into the year. That's one every 2.5 days. That is insanity. This is NOT what our founding fathers fought for.

Thursday Infuriated Stub
Author: Scoopster    Date: 02/15/2018 13:36:44

Was listening to NPR this morning and the interview they had with Sen. Mike Rounds (R-ND) just pissed me right off. How could a United States Senator sit there with calm demeanor and measured speech saying that THIS COUNTRY CAN DO NOTHING TO STOP OUR FELLOW CITIZENS FROM BEING UNNECESSARILY MURDERED.

that WE CAN DO NOTHING TO STOP OUR CHILDREN - THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY - FROM BEING UNNECESSARILY MURDERED.

I'm so angry right now that I want to leave work because I know I can't concentrate on my work

Pence is Dense

Good Morning.

It's my favourite biennial time of the year!

Having attended the 1976 games in Montreal as a young boy, the Olympiad has long held a certain fascination with me. Following it over the years, I've long watched the pomp and circumstance, and maybe have come to understand some of the etiquette and protocol involved.
