I’m not sure what a Russian Bot is, but I hear it looks like an orange asshole with a bad comb over

From Helen:

Margaret, I’m mad as hell and I have a few things I need to get off my chest. First, and most important, how the hell do Russians dope in Curling? Do you down a fistful of Xanax before you gently push the stone across the ice?

And speaking of Russians, there is something called a Russian Bot messing with our elections. One of them goes by the name @RealDonaldTrump. Now I don’t know what a bot is, but I assume it looks like an asshole with a bad comb over.

For the love of man, do Trump’s Twitter followers have any decency? These kids are not actors. They are re-acting to watching their friends get murdered by an 18 year old maniac with an assault rifle. I hope that is something these so called Patriots never have to experience.

The GOP’s hypocrisy has no bounds. They can limit and restrict my right to an abortion or my grandson’s right to get married, but the right to own a gun is a sacred gift from God. Because we all know that if the disciples had AR-15’s, Jesus would have said, “Let’s blow the shit out of those damn Romans. Make Nazareth Great Again.” #MNGA

And we know these NRA bought and paid for politicians aren’t going to do a damn thing. If slaughtering elementary school kids didn’t create new laws, this won’t even faze them. And give me a break. Trump is all talk. No limits. No regulations. Bigger bullets. Longer barrels. Anything to make up for that tiny, orange carrot hanging between his legs.

We’re talking about arming teachers instead of un-arming children. We’re making plans to turn our schools into prisons rather than banning assault rifles from an unregulated, redneck militia. Somehow the solution to gun violence is more guns. Now that is some serious bullshit.

And when they are not attacking kids, these “Christians” are worshipping a golden calf. Actually it’s more orange than gold. And more fool’s gold than real gold. A foolish orange cow with a bad comb over. When they gave him a mulligan, they lost the moral authority they never really had.

Well, just like that precious Emma Gonzales, I call bullshit. The solution to gun violence is not more guns. And the NRA is not a membership organization for gun owners. It is a domestic terrorist organization for gun manufacturers. It buys politicians and then forever holds them hostage.

Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” #NeverAgain indeed. If my daughter will take me, I’m going to that march in DC. And if I get anywhere near that golden cow, I’m going to slap that comb over right off its orange head.

Bullshit. The whole Trump presidency is bullshit. I mean it. Really.

From Margaret:

Never doubt that a small and ignorant group of Republicans can elect a President; indeed, with the help of Russia they already have.

  9. Parents now worry as much – or more – about their grade-schoolers coming home alive from school than they do their sons and daughters who are deployed overseas in the military… And not without good reason. And, until the NRA (and NOT responsible gun owners) is rendered powerless and irrelevant, that’s how it will continue to be.

    As for that teacher who inadvertently leaves a weapon unattended? He/she will be fired and or jailed. The football player who’s “had enough,” and snaps after four or five concussions? A failure of the mental health system. Just a couple more “bad apples”… It couldn’t POSSIBLY be a “gun situation,” and it will ALWAYS be “too soon to talk about it,” and nobody could be ever be so insensitive as to try to “politicize tragedy” and pass laws that would make it less likely that such tragedies happen just about every other week. That wouldn’t be “freedom,” would it?

  11. Thank you both, Helen and Margaret! Glad to see your post. You have been missed. Leave it up to Helen to make you think really hard while you are chuckling. We don’t need to arm teachers. I was like, do these teachers keep these guns on their desks to shoot the potential shooters as they come through the doors of the classroom? if locked up, how do they get to these guns before being shot first? It is an asine idea. We need to educate kids about not bullying other kids. We need to establish a mental health system that works. We need so many things that the NRA is never going to go for. All the gun makers think about is to make money. Human lives don’t count. We sure don’t need assault rifles to hunt, they are made to kill other humans. As simple as that. Shame on them all!

  12. I love you both. My youngest son 16. This week, a student at his school was arrested for making a threat to “recreate Parkland” at his school. It is so hard to send him to school, knowing there are people who DO things like this, and our government is so bought and paid for by the NRA that they will do nothing to protect our children. More guns are not the answer. What happens the first time a six year old finds the gun Teacher left unattended for just a minute? Or that big burly football player decides he’s had enough and grabs the gun, or a teacher snaps? THEN what?

  14. Hey, Mageen…! Good to hear from you, and everybody else, too. I actually had a moment of pity earlier this morning (but only a moment) for Wayne LePew and his “No Reality Allowed” gang. A sterling example of what happens when chutzpah gets control of the gonads… Plenty of gun owners around here have thought, for years, that the NRA us absolutely ridiculous in continuing to insist that there’s no difference between an assault-style weapon and a hunting rifle, and that nobody should ever have to tell anyone how many of what they’ve got, and where they got them – or even learn how to use them, for that matter.

    Shooting club members know what those 30-bullets-a-minute, large-capacity magazine, blunderbusses are for – they’re designed for war, for killing or maiming a vast swath of whatever is anywhere in front of their barrel. They don’t merit much respect from hunters or trap shooters, or anyone, for that matter, who gives a fig about marksmanship and skill. But ol’ Wayne just keeps standing up there and mewling away about how the “right to bear arms” is our most basic “freedom”… And how those “European-style socialists” want to take away everybody’s “rights.” Oh, for heaven’s sake. And BS.

    If the NUA weren’t so perpetually arrogant, and stupid, and had made even the TINIEST effort to indicate that most gun owners have some brains, some sense of responsibility, and maybe even the desire that their own children, gun-totin’ or not, should be able to get through elementary school without being blown to bits, they might not have brought their impending downfall on themselves, as god-awful long as it’s seeming to take.

    One is reminded of a certain group of Orange Cheatos who can’t seem to figure that out, either. The fading into irrelevance of every single one of them can’t come soon enough…

  15. Had breakfast out this AM in a well known neighborhood eatery. Overheard lots of talk about the high school massacre, especially about the NRA. That outfit is losing its grip on the public FAST. No one at the eatery is pro NRA and the loss of support from various supporters was widely and loudly mentioned and approved. Got that? Approved!!! the eatery is located in a very conservative, “red” part of the county, so this reaction is totally notable! The NRA is going down like rush Limbaugh who is know broadcast only by small stations with much less muscular signal. And even they are taking a hit. I also saw the video of LaPierre and that strange woman at the CPAC. They looked, sounded and acted like they were scared to death. They have bastardized the 2nd Amendment long enough and lied about the God given right to buy military weapons. All I can say is those kids in Florida need to keep on keeping on! This is the generation that can do the job!

  51. I am a former teacher. I grew up in a hunting culture so long guns do not scare me. AR-15’s on the other hand do such a good job of chewing up a victim that it would be hard to identify the body. Would I have packed heat when I was teaching? No! I was teaching adolescents. The hormone barrage that hits them at that age makes their lives more miserable than merry. Have teachers been beaten up by teenagers? Yes. I know one that was almost disabled for life by a kid witnessing the explosive breakup of his parent’s marriage. If he had come after me and I had been ;packing heat, would I have shot him? Most likely not. My upbringing was multifaceted in dealing with trouble. Likely I would have busted his chops and stopped him. Then what? Well, there was always the chance that I would be sued, no matter the circumstances, and lose my job.

    Back to the hormones: remember complexion problems of the teen years? OK. what most people do not know is that depression also sets in with the hormones. It seems to hit boys much, much harder than girls. It can turn a great student into a failing student as it impacts attention span and concentration. It also impacts perception. Everyone and anyone is the enemy. Depression also gets int he way of learning alternate solutions to life problems. The troublemaker in the class is never tested for the disease and goes on to do very, very bad things.

    As for the NRA, I have long thought of them as subversive. Actually, they meet all the qualifications. And they have bastardized the 2nd Amendment by refusing to recognize Heller as written by Justice Antonin Scalia who blatantly said that AR-15s are military grade, not civilian, and thus should be denied for sale to civilians.

    Not simple, its it! But the NRA has finally let its own cheese fall off the cracker. There is now a huge opening and it looks like the kind of whirlpool that can suck them down.

    Bless you both, Margaret and Helen. Keep on keeping on.

  58. I like you both a lot and hate Trump, however I don’t think the Russians are to blame here and find it sad that you are believing that story line. Our current mess is the result of our politicians led by their own greed. And the Democrats are not much better ….. I think 27 of them voted yesterday to approve Wilbur Ross as Sec. of Commerce — yes, after they make their strong statements to the press against Trump many Dems vote with him in Congress. Dianne Feinstein, my senator, voted for Wilbur, oh dear. The Democrats voted to give Trump more money for defense than the GOP had asked for — perhaps this is why the Democrats lost so badly during the last elections? I won’t vote for candidates who expand the Pentagon’s power and keep the armament companies wealthy, and who are best friends with Wall Street bankers (i.e., Obama and Hillary). I still can’t find any proof the Russians ‘hacked’ anything, especially not this last election, and I read everything I can. Open to proof, but so far can’t find any and don’t think Mueller will turn up anything meatier than money-laundering & other gangster crimes. Yes Trump is bad but the Dems have to look at how they allowed him to win. Otherwise we’re looking at Trump in 2020.

  59. The difference between Sandy Hook and this is that these kids took video and recorded their thoughts and these kids are old enough to be able to fight back themselves. They are not grieving parents trying to deal with being harassed while mourning and setting up funerals. They are social website and tech savvy. They are sharp and articulate and just a few months or a year away from being able to vote.

    Turn our schools into prisons and only hire ramboesque teachers? That will really make schools feel like a safe place to those kids.

    When I started teaching high school, during all the upheaval over the Vietnam War, I used to worry I wouldn’t be able to save kids from a gunman or demonstrator. Would I fail to measure up to protect them? I never thought I wanted a gun so I could kill anyone. Never.

    Speaking of more guns in schools, an armed sheriffs deputy was in the Flotia school at the time of the shootings. He did nothing to try to stop the shooter. Guess the NRA lied when it said that “the best way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun”.

    The Parkland students have the NRA and politicians shaking in their boots–their bullying, terrorist organization has started to crumble: National Bank of Omaha dropped their branded VISA; Enterprise, Alamo, and National Rental Cars withdrew their discounted privileges. By the weekend, many other businesses will be on board. There is something grossly wrong with people who can tolerate babies being blown to smithereens, communities held hostage to gang violence, and women murdered by controling, angry significant others, and no outrage or urgency to eliminate it. The innocent souls lost at Parkland, has created a movement and the students left behind have galvanized a nation–there will be no turning back. Gun safety is on its way!
