Also remember other countries have video games also.   They don’t have our amount of shootings as they have strict gun controls.   Hugs

We know the answer to gun violence, it is control the guns! Less access to guns, less gun violence. School kids know this, why don’t adults.

Border Patrol agent detains women for speaking Spanish at Montana gas station

Filed under: Bigotry, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 10:52

What the heck is wrong with the people in the US.   Being able to speak more than one language is a gift, a talent, not a crime.  How can any reasonable person think hearing speak another language means their an illegal immigrant?   How much of a sheltered life do you have to have to know other languages are spoken in the US?   I personally have trouble understanding the different english dialects spoken in this country.  Hearing something you can not understand is not grounds for arrest and detainment or people from Maine would be arrested in Georgia.   This is simply more fear mongering and scapegoating.  More of the us against the them mentality.   One thing that I notice is that spanish is the language picked out for these tiraids and investigations, not any other that is spoken.   I wonder why?   Please go to the link below and read the story.  Then let me know what you think.  Hugs

Ranting Pro-Trump NYC Lawyer Threatens To Call ICE Because Deli Staffers Were Speaking Spanish [VIDEO]

This sadly is America today under tRump and his fowl ilk.   

I simply do not feel like posting the shit this man said and his seeming not to understand US law, even though he is a lawyer.   There is not national language in the USA and the fact that you can not speak a language others are speaking is not their fault, it is yours.  These people were not speaking to him.  However just hearing something he couldn’t understand set off his “white english privilege” to explode.   I lived in a country where I couldn’t speak the language.  I tried, but it is a skill I did not have.  Those people did not shun me, nor make me feel bad, they helped me, often changing to english to make sure I was included. Why can we not do the same here?   Hugs

So on my way home after getting my stitches out of my mouth ( for the second time ) I stopped at the grocery store down the street from our home for a few items.  We shop there often and are recognized by the people working there.   I had passed the manager a few times and joked with him.  We both happened to be at the egg display case at the same time and I found a case of eggs with a few broken ones.   I gave the case to the manager.   I then checked another one and it also had broken ones, and I gave these to the manager also.  He was trying to take the broken ones out and get a full unbroken case and at that point a young store worker I had not seen before stopped by us.   I told the manager that three weeks ago I had checked a case of eggs, turned to put them into the cart, and hit the handle.  At that point the eggs flew out of my hands and flipped three times in the air, landing in the cart right side up.   Not a single egg got broken.  When I finished the young teen / adult boy spoke up and told me and the manager ” That was god Sir”, he blurted out.  “It was God, it had to be, only God could have kept them from breaking”.  Then as I just stared at him and the manager was also less than pleased he continued again with his lesson to us about the egg saving grace of his God, “God is with us, he is with you Sir, God is all around us and …”.   Noticing the manager was now giving him a very icy stare the young man began walking away.  As he departed I could hear him finish his joyful telling me about how God was with me.   The Manger turned to me and I shrugged while mentioning I had not known God was so good at designing styrofoam egg cases.    He laughed and I went on my way.  I wonder if that boy will be getting a talking to about telling people about his god while at work.  I felt bad for the boy really.  He honestly felt a deity had intervened to save the eggs I was buying but the boy never thought about the  kids his God lets starve and be raped.  The look on the boys face as he was telling us about his god was so happy.  I wonder, what happens when the light comes on , when that boy’s god fails him?  It seems cruel to me to teach young people to have that faith over reason.   Even though I live in the southern USA in a state known for its churches and religious fanatics, I was still stunned to see this.   What has education become in our country, this young man was praising his God and telling me he protected my possible eggs purchase but the boy was not thinking of the human engineers who worked on the packaging nor the many far more important things his God should have been doing and did not do.   Any thoughts?  Hugs

Defining Freedom … — Filosofa’s Word

Have you noticed that some words seem to have taken on a different meaning in the past few years than they once had? Take, for example, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). It sounds like a decent organization, right? Let’s break it down a bit … Alliance: a union or association formed for mutual benefit Defending: […]

Again Jill has gotten to the point of a subject and showed it clearly for what it is.   A great read from a grand author.   Hugs
