ok guys one more try..what can be effective on curbing gun violence

PBO's proposals are a step in the right direction but ultimately I think the answer is smart gun tech.

I TRULY believe this is where we need to be putting our efforts and money.

If every gun from this point forward was usable only by the owner who bought the gun it would go a LONG way toward curbing gun violence.

NO MORE stolen guns used
NO MORE straw purchases
NO MORE kids grabbing dads gun and causing mayham.

SMART GUN TECH is where we need to focus our resources.THIS is the future and if we embrace it we could stop a shit ton of gun violence

wow...saying people want to dance on the graves of children is now allowed


You could have just ignored the thread

haven't talked about My baby Buddy Guy in a while

Love my Budster.Ever had a dog who you understood better than most people?That's my budster.Ever since I got him back been kind of private with him but what the hell.

The CowGod is at 204 lbs now.We were monitering him when he weighed 192 in Virginia but our vet here says now that he is an adult he can carry up to around 220 without issues...the Budster gets to eat again and lord can he eat.ANY amount is fine as long as he is happy and my baby is happy.

Ever love a pet so much it hurts to leave him alone?That's me and my Budster..I love my dog so much.

Will get some updated pics later when I get out of bedrest.

God I love this animal.

much to the detriment of my enemies I have defeated death (well pneumonia) and rise to fight the fight again against all who oppose the budster and Katie and all who deny our beautiful creatures the right to exist with happiness and comfort.


I feel like myself after the night in the hospital.Temp spiked at 104.4...under 100 now and under control.Nausea is gone...energy is back..I FEEL GOOD!!!

Temp scared the hell out of me when they read it but they had it down fast....we should bow down to every health care professional we meet..they go above and beyond.

All hail the Budster and thanks all for the vibes...I feel so much better

my night in the hospital shows why we need universal health care

I have pneumonia and finally gave up and went to the hospital and spent the night last night.Spent about 11 hours in the hospital...two iv's ..an inhaler..some medicine..nothing special....Thanks to my insurance I'm paying $87 bucks....however,my insurance company was charged over 11k.

That's INSANE!

How can a night in bed..a b12 shot and some antibiotics..two Iv's...and a monitor cost over 11k?

Damn I feel bad..pnumonia and pink eye at the same time

they wanted to hospitalize me...I refused..can take medicine as easily at home for 100k less money.

temp 103.6 plus I have to pry my eyelids open from the muckus
