  1. More power to you young lady! You and your cohorts have single handedly changed the focus on to the NRA which is brilliant. Let us hollow them out and the vote out the politicians who stand with them.

  2. I am going to put this here in the new post so it won’t get lost in the crowd. “somebody’ applied for a MAGA trademark in 2012! It is easy to find who the applicant is from USPTO public information though the pictures below only show the attorney for the applicant. Media could have dug up this little nugget when trump tweeted his last tweet about Mueller’s indictments yesterday, no? This is the only tweet I have seen on MAGA trademark info. so far.

    • Holy hemiola. I’ve been reluctant to use the T word up to now but I’m beginning to think there’s a reason for it.

      • You know RD, media has been abysmally disappointing. Didn’t it occur to anyone to find if this so oft repeated crown jewel of trump campaign was ever trademarked and when? And ask why in 2012 and piece together the pieces to see who were involved?

        • The media is owned by McDucks who want those sweet, sweet tax cuts just like their fellow McDucks in other industries. Their employees understand that their bosses don’t want the GOP hampered from giving their bosses those tax cuts.

          Also, the decades-long GOP smear campaign against the media for its alleged “liberal bias” has got the media operatives scared of their own shadows. Since reality has a notorious liberal bias, the diligent attempt to avoid liberal bias makes the media increasingly unreal (and surreal).

          Plus, the dramatic changes in media technology over the past few decades–the advent of “narrowcasting”–coupled with the abolition of the Fairness Doctrine, has allowed the propaganda industry to become lucrative.

      • Can some enterprising media person do a search on the very first time MAGA was used and who used it?

      • “T”? You mean as in Traitor? Treason? Because, mentally, I can’t even go there right now. If this country–even being manipulated by Russians–could be deranged enough to elect an actual traitor to the presidency…..yeah, it would be time to think about moving.

  3. Hmmm…the GOP is going to need a new “menace” to enrage the Stupid White Folks, and enlist them into the Orc-hordes yet again.

    Hey, here’s one! 😛

  4. Yup, this girl and these kids are on their way to greatness, and improving this world. I will be happy to witness it.

  5. Damn. This girl is amazing! I will be sharing this vid everywhere I can.

  6. After Florida Shooting, Man Gives AR-15 to Police Because He Doesn’t ‘Need It’

    After a school shooting in his state killed 17 people, a Florida man decided to voluntarily hand his semi-automatic rifle over to police, because he says he doesn’t need it.

    Ben Dickmann, a resident of Tarmac, Florida, turned in his AR-57, a variant of the AR-15, to the Broward Sheriff’s Office on Friday –– in the same county where a gunman killed teachers and children at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday. In a Facebook post, he wrote that, even though he’s a “responsible, highly trained gun owner,” he doesn’t see a need for the average person to own the powerful firearm.

    “I do not need this rifle. No one without a law enforcement badge needs this rifle,” he wrote on Friday. “This rifle is not a ‘tool’ I have use for. A tool, by definition makes a job/work easier. Any ‘job’ I can think of legally needing doing can be done better by a different firearm.”

    He continued, “I could have easily sold this rifle, but no person needs this.”

    His post, which garnered hundreds of thousands of likes within one day and over 100,000 shares, was a follow-up to a promise he made on Thursday, when he wrote on Facebook, “I can now say I know people who have been directly affected by three of the most horrific gun violence events in our history (NIU, Las Vegas, Stoneman-Douglas), and a couple more single events. This makes me sick. This makes me mad. I’m tired. I’m tired of hearing about thoughts and prayers.”

    Dickmann’s post touches on a frustration that more Americans feel after each and every mass shooting. While politicians offer “thoughts and prayers,” some constituents demand tangible actions that will help to prevent additional tragedies. And some, like Dickmann, are taking matters into their own hands.

    As Dickmann wrote on Friday, “I will be the change I want to see in this world. If our lawmakers will continue to close their eyes and open their wallets, I will lead by example.”


    Past couple of days, people–including RD–have been saying, this time, this shooting, is different. I feel it too. Things are going to change this time.

  7. School walkouts, sit-ins planned after Florida shooting

    The mass shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead has sparked calls for walkouts, sit-ins and other actions on school campuses across the United States aimed at pushing lawmakers to pass tougher gun laws.

    Organizers behind the Women’s March, an anti-Trump and female empowerment protest, called for a 17-minute walkout on March 14 to “protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods.”

    The Network for Public Education, an advocacy organization for public schools, meanwhile, announced a “national day of action” on April 20, the anniversary of the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado, in which two students opened fire on their classmates, killing 12 students and one teacher.

    The organization is encouraging teachers and students to organize sit-ins, walkouts, marches and any other events to protest gun violence in schools.

    “The politicians sit on their hands as our children and their teachers are murdered in their schools,” Diane Ravitch, the group’s president, and Carol Burris, its executive director, said in a post online.

    The protest plans circulated widely on social media on Saturday, signaling that the outcry for new gun legislation may not fade away as it has after other recent mass shootings. Many of those shootings, including the deaths of 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012, led to a push for new gun laws, but those efforts stalled in Congress.

    “We need to make this moment a movement and to actually make changes that need to happen in this country so that these kinds of weapons, AR-15s, are not in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them,” said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, a union representing teachers and other educators.

    Weingarten said she was part of the discussions about the April 20 protest. What gives the Florida shooting more potential to spark change, she said, is that the students themselves got angry really quickly and demanded it.

    Teenage survivors of Wednesday’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have become advocates for gun control, sparring with gun-rights activists on social media and calling for safer gun laws at vigils and in television interviews.

    Thousands of angry students, parents and residents demanded stricter gun control laws on Saturday at a rally in Fort Lauderdale, which is about 20 miles from the site of the shooting in Parkland.

    Some people in online posts called for a Civil Rights-era style boycott of schools until gun laws are changed. David Berliner, a professor of education at Arizona State University who also participated in the plans for the April 20 protest, said he would support such a boycott. He recalled watching a television news report about Wednesday’s shooting at an airport.

    “I’m crying, and I’m watching all the people all around me crying, and I just said, ‘This has got to stop,'” he said.

    Clare Schexnyder, a mother of a middle-school student in Decatur, Georgia, said she wants moms to take their kids out of school for a day to make a statement.

    She said a private Facebook page she launched announcing a meeting of her Stop School Shootings group after the Florida shooting attracted more than 7,000 followers overnight.

    Her protest is planned for March 2.

    “President Trump talked about the American carnage in the United States. This is the American carnage,” she said.




    • I dunno, IBW. Some “Prosperity Christians” might be doing that. But the others just want to be Raptured.

    • The end is coming very quickly, Niles. You might want to adopt the brace position, put your head between your knees and kiss your ass goodbye.

    • Hey, Trump Chump, why hasn’t your glorious mighty god-emperor fired that pesky Mueller yet?

      Maybe he’s been told that, if he does fire Mueller, then Mueller will start leaking, as calmly and deliberately as one of the god-emperor’s Russian pee hookers? 😈
