Fill-in-the-Blank Reporters’ Template

Preface: Seeing how, here, within gun sick America, on average, we can expect daily acts of deadly domestic terrorism; perpetrated, by and large, by hardcore, right wing radicals, would the actual existence of the following, sample template shock any of us?

`

On ______day, ___ / ___ / 20___, ______, _______ became the latest pop up, war zone where the horrified general public became witness to the latest rage in police “protection”; namely, where cowardly, self-centered, so-called, good guy first responders, armed with military magnitude guns, no less, opt to lollygag; to shamelessly shake in their jackboots, while taking little action to restore the peace.

Lax gun control statutes, coupled with a stagnant police force, wound up allowing yet another bad guy with a gun, later identified as ______ ______ ______ (middle name / initial optional), to go on a take no prisoners rampage; to indiscriminately, relentlessly, repeatedly and heartlessly open fire upon the unsuspecting, helpless innocents, whose only “crime” had been merely going about their day-to-day lives; thereby resulting in the shooter (fill in known quantities) murdering ____ and maiming ____.

In the wake of this latest, needless national tragedy, per usual, we were forced to witness the barrage of “our” spineless, soulless national, state and local “leaders” / “legislators”; all colluding with their spineless, soulless gun manufacturer and National Rifle Association cohorts; forced to endure these tired, crotchety, feckless, flaccid males, ON CUE, speechifying their insufferable, meaningless, sanctimonious, paint-by-the-numbers “thoughts and prayers” platitudes; making mere photo op props out of the grieving, heartbroken, crying their eyes out, surviving families and friends.

Expect everything to blow over within a news cycle or two (three tops); to return to the never acceptable “new normal”, where nearly no one we empower will ever do our bidding; will actually deliver on the already decades overdue, vital to humankind’s survival, gun control crack downs required to halt domestic terrorism, dead in its tracks… uh…

Before we wind up dead in our tracks.

Be humans Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!

HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:

Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
