About Me

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.

BBC reporter’s sobering advice to America: ‘Break’ the NRA or your mass shootings will never stop

BBC host Aaron Heslehurst advised Americans this week that they would have to “break” or “dismantle” the National Rifle Association (NRA) if they wanted the mass shootings in the United States to stop.

On Wednesday’s Morning Business Report, BBC presenter Adnan Nawaz pointed out that journalists still did not have all of the details about the shooting in San Bernardino.

“There have been more mass shootings in the United States this year than there have been days this year,” Nawaz noted. “We’re at about 330-odd days with 350+ mass shootings. And it’s becoming far too common as far as almost any sensible person including President Obama is concerned.”

Words of true wisdom!

Amazing I have to go out of my country to learn real news and perspectives about my country.

Opinion piece: The Day We Finally Told Politicians To Shove Their Thoughts & Prayers Up Their Asses

While the fallout continues from yesterday’s shooting in San Bernardino that left at least 14 dead — the 355th mass shooting of the year — it was hard not to notice a dramatic turning point in the conversation around mass shooting yesterday. The sense in the past is that we in the media — social, Internet, and mainstream — shouldn’t be quick to politicize these tragic deaths, but the tide has begun to turn. We’re beginning to fight against this idea that we shouldn’t politicize something that can only be fixed through politics.

I've said it for years. Fuck giving me your prayers!

Ted Cruz suddenly concerned that people think he's a jerk


Now that Ted Cruz is gaining in the polls by drawing growing support from “very conservative” voters, the guy who has touted endorsements from anti-abortion extremists and asserted that the “overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats" is trying to "soften" his image, reports Niall Stanage

He's baaaack! Our old friend George Zimmerman is banned from Twitter

A seemingly angry George Zimmerman took to Twitter today to send out nude photos and the phone number of a woman he claims is his now ex-girlfriend. He said, “She cheated on me with a dirty Muslim.” He also provided her name and phone number.

Not only was he suspended from Twitter for sending out the photos, Jenny Kutner at Mic.com makes the case that he seems to have violated Florida law.

His lawyers must be damn proud, even though they have no soul or conscience

My brother is a fucking gun nut that is dating a Trump supporting teabagger

Both of my parents and I are Bernie supporters. My 27 year old brother is a fucking racist gun nut.

You can't believe the shit he's posting on my facebook. Here are the basics:

I stated that enough is enough. I am tired of these mass shootings. Gun ownership is a massive problem.

His responses (keep in mind, i just copied and pasted):

1: I own 4 and u dont see me on the god damn news. Thats responsible gun ownership. Ur opinion of "if u own a gun ur the problem" is WRONG. i know that 5 letter word that will cause u lose ur mind

2: Tell me to my face that I am the problem because i own guns. Anyone over 21 who owns a car is to blame for drunk driving. Same lunacy

3: strip the guns out of our military's hands. They have guns and r part of the problem. U have to put this logical fallacy to ALL citizens. No exception. Never another gun again to anyone

4: When I said he will change his tune heaven forbid his two kids are victims, he said he will teach his children how to deal with an active shooter. when I asked if they will pack heat, he told me: "Did i say they will have them in schools, NO. Quit putting words in my mouth to make ur opinion sound better to degrade mine. They will be taught how to deal with and active shooter. Thats what was said. Nothing more than that"

5: When I said I am glad I live overseas in a country that has gun control: "since ur"home" is so bad, renounce ur citizenship and never be considered an american again."

6: I mooch, and don't pay taxes living overseas. When i said I make less than 86K overseas and am American tax exempt but not Malaysian tax exempt, I was told: " Then if u fund another country's revenue, become thier citizen and stop tanking mine."

My brother is now an "America, love it or leave it" type who jacks off on his guns.

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife welcome baby girl into a flawed world - Huge Charity Donation

Zuckerberg also took the opportunity to announce the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a nonprofit that will look "to join people across the world to advance human potential and promote equality for all children in the next generation. Our initial areas of focus will be personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities."

Zuckerberg had already signed a pledge to The Giving Pledge, a promise signed by wealthy individuals to donate most of their fortune. He said that the couple would be donating 99% of their Facebook shares to the cause, currently worth around $45 billion.

The happy couple also released a video about the excitement for the baby and why they started the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

Andrew Carnegie did the same thing

Man arrested near hospital after he threatened to shoot surviving Planned Parenthood attack victim

Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs was on lockdown earlier today after threats were received:

Colorado Springs police are looking for a "suspicious person" Monday afternoon at Memorial Hospital after he allegedly made threats to shoot one of the wounded victims from Friday's Planned Parenthood shooting, according to police.

Heavy police activity was spotted in the area around the hospital and now police believe they have their suspect.

It’s frightening the new suspect not only made threats to one of the surviving victims, but was located near the hospital. Hats off the the Colorado Springs police for acting quickly. There is no word on who received the threats and what the motive might’ve been for another shooting.

Asshole influenced by conservative assholes.
