A Tennessee man who was promoting open carry laws as a solution to mass shootings in churches accidentally shot himself and his wife on Thursday… while they were in church.

Roy Moore and the religious vote

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Children, Harm, News, opinion, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:31

Recently I have been hearing all over the internet and news about the fact of how many preachers and religious communities have stay fast in their support of Roy Moore.    These are the first to complain about the morals of others.   More than Fifty Pastors signed letters of support.   I know people of faith do not feel this way.  I hope those of faith will have a few words with the religious ones who think a 33 year old man should be dating 14 year old girls and taking 16 yr old girls in their car to try to force them to give him oral sex.   I am atheist but I know that is immoral and wrong.   Hugs

An article dealing with the making of american hate group Nazis. Please read and give me your thoughts. Thanks. Hugs

Below is a link to an article of great importance to our time , our country , the way some conduct is allowed.   I took about 1 & 1/2 hours to read it and try to digest what it was saying.  it was scary to me in that it seemed the saddest most desperate for something kids had banded together and created a way they could rage and vent, even pretend they were the important people they wanted so desperately to be.  They say that white supremacist and nationalist of any country are basically afraid people like them are not worth much anymore and that they have little value.   They got this lack of esteem not in that they were the targets of some kind of oppression like some groups had suffered.   IN fact they targeted for abuse groups that had been oppressed in an attempt to make their own lives feel worth more.   They got feeling left behind because the world is changing and they don’t fit neatly into the new gears, slots, and places.    They have the ability for the changing world that is clear but not the internal emotional connection to the group as a whole.  Simply put the slogan chanted in Charlottesville “We will not be replaced” shows me this fear in bold letters of every word.  I do not have the training to really evaluate them and the article was a hard read for me.  I hope other that view my blog will read it, all or bits, and give me your thoughts.   Sadly this kind of hate and speech is something that is now part of the body of our country and it must be addressed.   Thank you.   Scottie.   Hugs 

The Making of an American Nazi

How did Andrew Anglin go from being an antiracist vegan to the alt-right’s most vicious troll and propagandist—and how might he be stopped?

Debunking the Uranium one lie

Filed under: News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 11:54

Here are some excerpts below. Please read the entire article for a better understanding of what happened. However know this, tRumpsky’s insisting on the justice department to investigate this is simply a political attack on a former political opponent. That is something the USA is not supposed to be involved in doing. This is a distraction as tRumpsky thinks it will divert attention from his campaigns true collusion to a fake charge of one. it is an attempt to get his base to think something happened that did not so as to take the heat of himself for what did really happen. Please do not let yourself be tricked. Learn what really happened. Hugs

. First, the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction. It could do neither.

First, the Clinton State Department had no power to veto or approve that transaction. It could do neither.

Further, neither Secretary Clinton nor the committee as a whole could stop any deal of this kind. The committee members evaluate a sale of anything potentially related to national security. By law, if one member objects, the president and only the president can veto such a transaction. No committee member of the nine objected

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved the sale on November the 24th of 2010 and in doing so, stipulated that no uranium produced may be exported.

So where does the uranium go? Well, the Energy Information Administration or EIA reports that unless special permission is granted by the Department of Energy or other governmental agencies, Uranium One sells the uranium that it mines in the United States to civilian power reactors in the United States.

Even so, the accusation is predicated on the charge that Secretary Clinton approved the sale. She did not. A committee of nine evaluated the sale, the president approved the sale, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and others had to offer permits, and none of the uranium was exported for use by the U.S. to Russia. That is Uranium One.

Take from the poor to give to the wealthy. That is the republican code.

Yet they are still insisting on giving huge tax cuts to the wealthy who do not need it.  They are taking that income from the poorest and the middle class to do that.    Now you know who they work for, and it is not you.  Lets remind them they work for the voters not the wealthy donors.   Hugs
