This is what it's about

I am not a parent. I am an Aunt and a Great Aunt and I shamefully will admit that I have never asked any of the young adults and kids in my life if they have ever had an active shooter drill.

I must also admit, that while the media talks about them, they never really tell you about them. David Hogg, a graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, did what so few seem to do.

Mob Rule
Author: BobR    Date: 06/01/2022 12:10:08

The United States is in serious trouble. We have allowed money and marketing to warp our perspectives, to the point that it may be too late to undo the damage. Big corporations pay lobbyists, who donate to and bend the ear of politicians, who use that money to get elected, and create legislation favorable to the corporations.

The Real Tragedy
Author: Raine    Date: 05/26/2022 12:52:04

The events of the past few weeks have been horrific. Here it is two days later and I still find myself seething with anger, frustration, and deep sadness. While there is is still a lot more to find out about the massacre in Texas, the news from today is deeply bothersome. About those good guys with a gun?

The Time is Now

It was over when The Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor
Author: Raine    Date: 05/23/2022 13:07:43

Good Morning and welcome to the start of a new week. I woke up today to see that the basic crapshow in this nation is fairly benign in accordance with this new chaotic normal. I hope that makes sense.
