Republicans support gun-free


Well would you believe that.

Yes, I would, a case of ‘Do as I say, not do as I do’.

They deserve each other, but America needs better.

Well seemingly Republicans support gun-free zones for themselves but not for children. Seems guns keep everyone safe but when it comes to Republicans they can’t be trusted.

Sounds about right to me.

Hypocrisy????

via GOP supports (their own) gun-free zones

Trump shares letter from Putin: ‘His thoughts are so correct’ | TheHill


A piece of paper, is this equivalent to the piece of paper in the hands of Chamberlain before the start of World War II, lets hope not for Trump will not have the sense to provide the correct reactions.

——————————————————————————————-

President-elect Donald Trump on Friday praised Vladimir Putin and shared a Christmas letter the Russian president sent him.

“A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct,” Trump said in a statement. “I hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts, and we do not have to travel an alternate path.”

In the attached letter, Putin emphasized the importance of cooperation between the two countries.

“I hope that after you assume the position of the President of the United States of America we will be able – by acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner – to take real steps to restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a qualitatively new level,” the Russian leader wrote.

The statement comes amid a new controversy over Trump’s nuclear plans and fears it could spark a new arms race with Russia.

The child abuse inquiry has been devastatingly inept – but it must go on | James Rhodes | Opinion | The Guardian


The key issue for me, and probably for most of the survivors who this inquiry was designed to give a voice to, is one of trust. Theresa May fought for this inquiry.She fought for us. Back in July 2014 when she announced it as home secretary, you could almost see the eye-rolling going on among certain Tory party members. Yet, to her immense credit, she persevered. And then came the catalogue of mistakes, disasters and obstructions that, to all but the most naive of us, simply scream cover-up.

The Reason People Do Not Trust The Police: Abduction and Human Trafficking


I agree with the post and the current comments. However, with the current political climate, media coverage and many of the population acting like sheep and lemmings, I can not see how any of this will improve.

In fact, I can only see it getting worse, so GOD help us all, for if we all are not careful there will be no way back from the cliff of doom and despair.
