What we have now is the public vivisection of the status quo, a “money, mo’ money” status that has led us to Bernie Madoff, Martin Shkreli, “The Big Short” and too-big-to-fail banking firms that are now bigger and more risky than they were before the Great Recession. We can see the bones of corruption beneath the layers now, and we are finally infuriated. We’re ready to act, en masse, because eyes are opening to the lies and the manipulation that so transparently attempts to keep a candidate we like from even appearing on t.v. We don’t trust the previously trusted voices, and we find more and more often the ties between the the naysayers and the money behind the curtain.
Gun trolls imagine a scenario where they are the good guy with a gun, and they are without a doubt going to handle this devastatingly dangerous and potentially fatal situation without so much as the quickening of their pulse. Why? Because guns, that’s why.
God does not bless us for letting perpetual fear run our lives so much that we can’t imagine life without owning guns.
God does not bless America. Why would He?

The actions of the political abuser are no less callous or brutal in their effects than those of domestic abusers. Minimizing such acts has led us where we are today, a political and legal environment that gives politicians and their corporate supporters little more than wrist slaps for destroying the environment, impoverishing millions of Americans, and imprisoning over 2 million others.
The outcome was predetermined. Either way, plutocracy wins, and that’s not good for anyone.
