All hat, no cattle

Mueller frantically tries to delay a trial he probably thought would never happen.

Present day America

Too few remaining roots to our once great nation and its former productive culture.

"It’s all part-and-parcel with an American way-of-life that is not what it advertises itself to be. It’s become a cruel hologram of a distant memory of a land that sold its soul for a few decades of comfort and convenience, and ended up in a wilderness of addiction to cheap hits of pleasure. Pleasure is not happiness and the constant seeking to satisfy pleasures is not a journey to meaning. The catch is that this toxic way of life has poor prospects for continuing as a practical matter. History is catching up with our foolishness and history will prove to be even more wrathful than a lonely, confused, seventeen-year-old boy with a pistol and shotgun." - James Howard Kunstler

Don't let media fool you

Media needs Trump more than Trump needs media.

Unsubstaniated... out right lies...

Remember how Trump was countered when he suggested his campaign was being spied on?

Facts now coming to light seem to substantiate his once-denounced claims.

What a difference a year makes.

Chicago violence updates

"Raise awareness," or prey on the ignorance of the masses? 

Art exhibit in Chicago (and CNN) play with the idea that buying a gun is as easy as renting a bicycle. (It's not, of course. But they don't let realities get in the way of propaganda).

Yes, they're still keeping count of shootings in Chicago. It's reported 84 people were shot there in a recent week. But don't worry. police say they're encouraged that gun violence is on the decline. 

BTW, it's not just gangs using guns that make Chicago's streets unsafe. But it's apparently hard to file a police report after a gang cracks your skull.

Think before your vote

We tend to see elections as protecting our rights.

But that's not necessarily correct.

Sometimes a candidate on a ballot advocates for subverting your rights, not protecting them.

Before casting a ballot, do some homework.  Know who you're voting for.

Shaking some dust off old data...

Guns are more often used to defend against crime than to commit crime. So, apparently, say the numbers gathered in some previously "lost" research that's now come to light.
