Who Has the Political Power?

Posted by mcm0704 on February 26, 2018 |

  Last week I listened to a Podcast that compared the recent responses to the mass shootings to what happened following the 2012 tragedy in Sandyhook. In both cases, survivors and families of those killed made endless pleas to Congress to ban assault weapons. In both cases, Congress refused. The podcast included clips of the […]

No More School Shootings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2018 |

My heart is weighed down with sadness over the horrible loss of lives in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday.  So many – too many – young people had their futures taken away in the flash of gunfire by a disturbed gunman who obtained an assault weapon much too easily. I heard on The Daily Podcast Friday […]

Do We Need Assault Weapons?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 3, 2017 |

There have been 270 mass shootings in the U.S. in 2017, and now we’ve had another. The latest in Las Vegas is one of the worst in U.S. history where 59 people were killed and hundreds injured.

Before we get into the news, I thought you might enjoy this: One of the things trending in the news of late is the lack of any real gun control legislation coming from a recent Senate session. Here is what Stephen Colbert had to say to the senate: Senate! You couldn’t pass a bill if it […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Before we get into the news and other odds and ends, I thought you might enjoy this meme. The caption from Rita Rudner is priceless. In The News This video  on Blue Nation Review of Joe Biden responding to the Trumster’s verbal assault on Judge Gonzalo Curiel in the media is worth watching. Judge Curiel is presiding over […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 15, 2016 |

First I’m going on the record to say I liked President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday night. I think he challenged all of us to work harder for a unified nation, and only the media and certain politicians decided that Obama’s remarks were aimed at specific people.

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on February 3, 2012 |

Just when you thought politics had sunk to the lowest possible point, there comes a new story. Last week the campaign manager for a Democrat challenging a Republican-held congressional seat in Russellville, Arkansas had his cat mutilated and the body left on his porch with the word “liberal” painted on the dead body. Come on, […]
