Anything but the Guns
Author: BobR    Date: 05/24/2018 15:48:21

The recent school shooting in Texas once again brought out the worst in all of the NRA apologists. As we are all aware, they feel the problem with gun violence isn't the guns, but literally anything else BUT the guns.

Numerous folks have pointed out that he used a shotgun and pistol, NOT an AR-15, so therefore banning AR-15s would have had NO EFFECT on this shooting. Never mind that a "child" of 17 isn't allowed to be in possession of a shotgun or pistol, so he had them illegally (see? - criminals WILL find a way to get guns... they'll take their parents' guns). Never mind that if dear old dad happened to have an AR-15 in the house, the kid would most certainly have used it (and done much worse damage). Never mind that people who actually DO want to control gun violence have proposed numerous regulations on gun control besides banning AR-15 (semi-automatic rifle) type weapons, and one of them would be holding the gun owner criminally liable for crimes committed with his/her weapons.

VA, or the Titanic?

Good Morning.

We've all been in a situation where there's a leadership vacuum. Whether it's personal, professional, or organizational, it's possible for said group to coast along for some time without real leadership, sometimes even for months or years.

I am not an Animal
Author: BobR    Date: 05/17/2018 13:05:21

In the late 1800s, Joseph Merrick (aka: The Elephant Man) lived in England. Like other people born with physical deformities in that period, he had trouble finding work. As a result, he was relegated to being a sideshow "freak", to be gawked at like some kind of weird animal. There have been others with congenital physical abnormalities, but he was the most famous. While he may not have actually uttered the exact phrase, the title of this blog is taken from the most famous line from the stage play written about his life

In early Nazi Germany, Hitler had a vision of a "master race", which required eliminating all those who he felt were polluting the gene pool. That would come to include gypsies, gays, non-whites, and - most famously - Jews. Rather than expel them, he chose to exterminate them. Getting the German people to accept this "Final Solution" did not happen overnight. First he and his propaganda ministry had to dehumanize them to the point where the citizens and soldiers saw them as animals. Once they were seen as animals, they could be treated as such. This is also how soldiers can be trained to overcome their societal-ingrained aversion to killing fellow humans - dehumanize the enemy..
