Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly got off three shots with a bolt action M-19 in about 10 seconds. It took Charles Wittman an hour and a half to shoot and kill 31 people from the University of Texas clock tower. Both were trained marksmen by the Marine Corps. In Las Vegas, 50 dead and over 200 wounded in just five minutes by some guy.
The federalist papers clearly indicate the reason for a “well regulated militia” was that the fledgling nation could not afford a sufficient army to defend itself as it spread into the western frontier against native Americans. It was the militia that fought with British regulars in the French and Indian wars, and the militia that started the war at Concord. The power of automatic weapons would be as incomprehensible to the founding fathers as going to the moon.
The NRA was a small organization that taught and promoted firearms safety courses when I was a boy and took those classes in a rural area where people hunted to eat. Over the span of decades, it changed into one of the most powerful lobbying forces in our nations history. When people aggregate all lobbying activity as evil huge money in politics, never forget that there are lobbyists who work on teachers wages, building hospitals, getting infrastructure investments to build economies in small towns, protecting the environment… if you are a member of the NRA, remember that your organization once was a champion of firearms safety. Not one that fought to put incredibly lethal weapons into the hands of unhinged mass murderers. Not one who used vast money and influence to promote dangerous guns and pay its own leadership millions of dollars in salaries. It is within your power to influence the organization from within to find itself again – an organization that sought to prevent harm from firearms. You do not have to hold our government and citizens at gunpoint to promote policies that enable these acts, you can once again promote gun safety. Today would be a good day to start.
Last night I had this dream, I was stuck in a thin weave basket, suspended in the air, unable to escape, darkness all around me
At first I struggled to get out, then I realized I had a knife, I cut through the small weaves and fell through
Then a voice took over my dream, there was no me, just the voice
Voice spoke and told me, the weaved basket is your suffering, the knife is perspective – if you want out of any suffering change how you think about what’s happening – and you’ll always find freedom and you’ll always be able to cut through the lies
Thanks to the crappy performance of iOS 11 in my iPhone 6+, I find myself in urgent need of a new phone. Because Apple prevents me from going back to the perfectly fine iOS 10, I have decided to leave iPhones behind. I am reasonably certain I will go for a Pixel 2 or 2+.
What I don’t know is what is required in changing from an Apple to a google phone. What happens to photos and data stored in all my apps? After all ten years ago, the only thing that mattered was that you wanted to keep the same phone number.
Can any of you who have already switched, tell me what I should know and issues I need to consider? Fred Davis, I’m sure you have much to say on this issue.
This is very beautiful read about what’s happening in Spain, Catalonia and EU.
Faced with those who promote rupture, I demand dialogue. Faced with exclusion, I ask for coexistence; federalism and union, not provincialism and division; the rule of law, not arbitrariness; and pluralism and freedom against dogma and imposition.
A government that works for its people, the weak and disadvantaged: South Korea is to write-off the debts of as many as 1.6 million people in a move designed to ease the financial burden on low-income individuals who have struggled to repay debts and to help them make a fresh start.
In 1944, the Swedish social scientist Gunnar Myrdal, who would go on to win the Nobel Prize in economics, published a landmark study of the United States titled “An American Dilemma.”
It was about the condition of blacks in America. He posited that over the course of American history, white prejudice kept African-Americans low in standards of living, health, education, manners and morals. But those low standards in turn confirmed and reinforced white prejudice, setting off a depressing spiral.
It is tragic to say that in 2017, 73 years later, those words seem strikingly relevant.
In the North American poetry world, the Pushcart Prize is one of the ways that poems become immortal and work their way into the canon. Each year, hundreds of publishers nominate just a handful of the poems they’ve published, and a small portion of those win the prize, earning the honor of being republished in the Pushcart “best of” anthology. So just being nominated is not rare … and yet, it is very special. I’m honored to be in such good company, and grateful to Split This Rock for publishing this poem and for nominating it.
“More and more of us love ‘our’ America, but don’t necessarily love America or Americans. We love the ones we love. We love the ones who love us.”
If at the end of another maddening week in American life you wish to be inspired rather than terrified, listen to this conversation on On Being Studios that I was privileged to take part in.
That they voted to not even read the bill before voting to approve tells the world all we’ve ever needed to know about these low life scumbags. Maybe we can interpret the literal chicken scratch written on the bill as a clause that mandates that anybody who voted for this garbage is mandated to commit suicide. #GOPTaxScam
