“Everything Wrong with the Parkland Students’ Manifesto”

The policy proposals put forth in the Parkland survivors’ manifesto are dangerous and will likely bring about more violence than they stop. These fear-based policies hyper-focus on and exaggerate mass shootings, a tiny subset of gun violence, at the expense of the mentally ill, people of color, and other marginalized groups. By failing to recognize … Continue reading “Everything Wrong with the Parkland Students’ Manifesto”

“You Still Don’t Know, Do You, Mr. Jones?”

{Note: The Constitution Con} The fatuous, baseless Putin/Russia demonization sold to the Democrat’s vacuous herd has converted what was once a mild, timid resistance to Deep State repression--to the Patriot Act; to NSA spying on us; to FBI criminal villainy, and Justice Department sleaze--into zombie cheerleaders for perps of the illegal, unconstitutional crimes they historically … Continue reading “You Still Don’t Know, Do You, Mr. Jones?”
