Ahhh, but it DOES. Again, if it were ISIS or Hezbollah that were the perps, I think no one might have taken anything I wrote as 'inappropriate'. But when the perps are Honest-to-Goodness "Americans", we must be somehow more respectful or considerate??

Many others get this, too.

Live by the ________, die by the ________. That old saw doesn't depend on nationality or political affiliation.

But. You do understand my sentiment. I'm done, thankyouverymuch.

When we open the door of which people we wish will be shot next, it's no surprise that it leads to an unpleasant place.

That is one fine-ass piece of moderating right there.

Falsehood will fly on the wings of the wind, and carry its tales to every corner of the earth; whilst truth lags behind; her steps slow and solemn, she has neither the vigour nor activity to overtake her enemy. - Thomas Francklin

N.R.A. Files Suit Against San Francisco

the new york times wrote:
The National Rifle Association sued San Francisco on Monday, less than a week after the city’s board of supervisors declared the group a terrorist organization and moved to limit relationships with companies that do business with the N.R.A.

. . .

Supervisor Catherine Stefani of the San Francisco board introduced the measure on July 30, on the heels of a shooting at a garlic festival in Gilroy, Calif., that left three dead and more than a dozen others injured.

. . .

Ms. Stefani, a lawyer, said in an interview on Monday that she believed the measure would withstand legal challenges.

“It’s a resolution, it’s not an ordinance, it’s nonbinding,” she said. “This is a desperate move by a desperate organization,” she added. “They misspend their members’ dues for their personal gain, they have many pending investigations against them, and they continue to perpetuate a culture of sick and pervasive gun violence in this country. Their time is up.”

She was referring to recent revelations about the N.R.A.’s spending practices, as well as investigations underway by the attorneys general in New York and the District of Columbia, and in Congress.

no justice, no peace.
