I'm glad we can speak out against domestic abuse. That even our unfeeling president will mouth the words. But the slaughter of our children, of innocents, of tens of thousands by guns is not only sacrosanct but many "leaders" dare not speak of it, do anything about it...worse..
It is time to be brutally honest...as honest as the brutality we alone among nations have institutionalized. Tens of thousands of Americans die every year of gun violence not because our politicians are silent or inert. They die because those politicians are complicit.
They are on the payroll of a national organization, the NRA, that places profits about the safety and security of our citizens and has overseen a campaign to silence debate...despite the fact that gun deaths kill more than all the wars we have fought, more than all terrorists...
Our paper tiger president lashes out at innocent aspiring immigrants, tears apart their families and fosters fear of them without reason. But he is silent on this scourge, this plague...and we cannot help but notice the ties between the co-conspirators in this mass slaughter...
the NRA & the Russians.

Respect for the dead does not demand our silence. It demands we speak out. In fact, speaking out is not enough. We must act & until the companies pay for their complicity & the politicians lose their jobs, our children & neighbors will continue to die.
