How about we require the NRA to build their headquarters with no entrances or exits? #NeverAgain

How about we require the NRA to build their headquarters with no entrances or exits? #NeverAgain

"...Speaking of Nuts R Allowed… Oliver North? Is that a joke or was Wayne LaPierre not generating idiotic ideas fast enough? “A culture of violence,” says the guy who sold guns to Iran in order to give money to people who tortured civilians and raped women including nuns and children. Yep. That guy. How about we require the NRA to build their headquarters with no entrances or exits?

You know what IS exclusive to the United States of America? The NRA, 42% of civilian guns, and an orange yeast infection wearing a MAGA hat."...

I would wear one.

This is the kind of bracelet* that Trump's ICE is forcing people to wear.

If I had the means to do so, I'd make some and distribute them so that we could all show HUMAN solidarity with those who are being forced to wear them.

*It’s been brought to my attention that the picture is NOT one of the immigration bracelets; rather, it IS from a organization that does very good humanitarian work. The picture came up when I googled “immigration ICE bracelet”, and I didn’t take the time to dig deeper. My bad. And my very sincere apologies to that organization. That said, I’m leaving the picture to provide context for latecomers to the thread.

Also — Whether or not the Denmark story is true is irrelevant. The fact that bracelets were instituted during W’s tenure is also irrelevant. What does matter is this: We currently have a head of state who takes every opportunity to revile anyone who does not look like him. We have a president who incites racist speech and action. We have a commander-in-chief who gleefully deports veterans of our armed services, and revels in the wrenching separation of children from their parents. He owns the horror that we presently deal with.

That said, we are presented with the opportunity to show that we do not share the joy he takes in the cruel treatment of other humans. We can wear a yellow bracelet of any design to show our solidarity in the simple concept of humane brotherhood. We can rise above the stench he is putting on our global reputation. We can decide to prove that we really do believe those words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. Wearing a yellow bracelet cannot accomplish all that, but it could be an expression of a beginning.

Man the lifeboats!

It appears that the captain of our ship of state is wandering around looking for an iceberg to play chicken with.

About that all-republican meeting to look at evidence ---

Is Rosenstein prohibited from showing the same evidence to Democratic leaders?

Sometimes you just gotta love random juxtaposition.

I clicked on the first, closed it, then noticed the next one on the page. Heh.

Digital camera question

I have a Kodak Easy Share that's about 10 years old, last used it a few weeks ago. Yesterday it wouldn't turn on, so I put in new lithium batteries. Still won't work.

Is anyone here familiar with that camera? Any ideas on how to proceed to get it working?
