CNN’s opinion is wrong.

So it is ok that being a school shooter hero is part of the teenage years?  The idea expressed in the quoted material is that it is not.  I’m more or less certain more people think it is not than “Americans prefer heroic human sacrifice in name of the gun god.” 

In any case, I’ll take my leave of this howling outrage now…

My evidence is that nothing is done about American gun laws no matter how many people die.  What is yours?

Trump said he could shoot someone and he wouldn’t lose voters:  https://www.cnn.com/2016/01/23/politics/donald-trump-shoot-somebody-support/index.html

When challenged for remarks like this, he says he was joking, but he has signalled something to his base which they understand.  If a real-life Tony Soprano, a Republican, ran for president against Joe Biden, or any of the other Democrat front runners, I’m not sure who would win.  Such is the present state of the Union.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Z3FEJcU2HY  (Tony Soprano meets his daughter’s boyfriend).

Tell me it’s just Trump.  We can all work together again when he’s gone?

quote from this article:

“I think a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, you know, a million species, what does that really mean?’ ” Varshini Prakash, a co-founder of the Sunrise Movement, which has been advocating for the Green New Deal, told me. “I think fundamentally we’ve got to get the message across that this is a crisis for humanity that could signal the end of human civilization as we know it. It’s not about animals somewhere off in the Arctic. It’s about the life that we lead, and whether we can keep leading it, and the chaos and violence that could ensue if we don’t do something immediately.”

I’m not changing the subject.  I’m thinking about what Tony Soprano’s daughter and her boyfriend are coping with at school . . . school shooters with AR15’s, and a planet that is going to hell in a handbasket . . . and Papa Tony and his cohorts at the controls.
