Repealing the Ban on Government Research on Gun Violence is Long Overdue

Whether or not one political party believes in science and facts shouldn't deter the rest of us, who live in the real world, to focus our attention and energy on getting this ridiculous ban repealed.

What's the Latest On Recovery Efforts in USVI? They Appear to Have Dropped off the Radar

Paddock's Apparent "Normal" Profile Underscores the Need for More Research on Gun Violence

Stephen Paddock didn't fit the stereotype of a mass murder, yet, that is exactly what he was. To say there is a need for further research on the causes of mass gun violence is an understatement. Yet, for political purposes, any government research into this very common danger has been banned. We have people like the current governor of Kentucky tweeting nonsense "that evil can't be regulated," as if we should discard the entire criminal code and criminal justice system. At some point, public safety should matter and the current ban on government research into gun violence should be repealed.

What if Gun Owners Paid a Tax to Help Defray the High Costs of Gun Violence?

The long list of costs associated with gun violence in American is enormous. Perhaps it's time for gun owners to shoulder some of the responsibility their rights and freedoms cost everyone, gun owners and non-owners alike.

The Ban Against Government Research on Gun Violence Needs to Be Repealed

The idea that fact-based research on gun violence is somehow invalid or a problem is cynical beyond belief. It's time to take a strong stand against the lobbyists and politicians with innocent blood on their hands in their quest for more money. The war on science is harmful to us all and will only continue to get worse if we do nothing.

It's Time for the MSM to Stop Sanitizing the Carnage

As mass shootings continue to increase in frequency and intensity, Americans need to see the true cost of our current gun policy. This means showing, in graphic detail, the true horrific carnage wrought by gun violence in order to penetrate the deep walls of denial preventing rational gun policies. Nothing short of that will make a difference.

Trump's Abysmal Response to the Puerto Rican Crisis is What Racism Looks Like in 2017

This is what "Make America Great Again" really means and it's ugly.

Republican "Tax Reform" is Merely Code for More Redistribution of Wealth Upward

Apparently, our wealthiest citizens are struggling and all Americans should devote even more resources to their upkeep, or as the book title suggested, "Pity the Poor Billionaire."

Pigs at the Trough

Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, perhaps for a reason. The idea that the GOP is the party of fiscal responsibility is a joke. They are shills for corporations and the ultra-wealthy, with their endless gluttony. This is the party that wanted a congressional investigation for $16 muffins at an Obama conference, yet Tom Price wasted over $1 million of taxpayer funds on private jet travel in a few short months (and never even offered to reimburse the taxpayers for his wife's seat.) As we've seen, time and again, gluttony and hypocrisy are the cornerstones of Republican leadership.

Trump's Intentional Lack of Response to PR Shows What Monsters Too Many Republicans Have Become

Trump's despicable response, actually, lack of a response, to the disaster and humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico only further demonstrates how much the Republican Party has become filled with too many monsters. If we take a look at the awful "health care" bills the party keeps pushing to pass, bills that are guaranteed to kill millions of Americans, or the latest scam--more free lunches for billionaires, disguised as "tax reform," supported only by their bogus trickle-down economic theory, a theory that lacks any empirical evidence to support it. It doesn't take a genius to see how damaging and destructive the Republican Party has become to the health, welfare, and safety of us all.
