Mere days ago, within gun sick America (insert my long, anguished, exasperated sigh), yet, another mass murderer reared his ugly head. That firearm toting freak ran amok in Uvalde, Texas; set his site on Robb Elementary School and went on a maiming and murdering rampage.
The (yet to be finalized) grim, Death Toll: 21 children and 2 adults
Yet to be reported is the number of wounded. However, what could count even more, is how humane humans, spanning that entire community / battlefield, have now wound up with lifelong, PTSD magnitude, psychological wounds.
While, instinctively, my compassion strongly motivates me to offer up thoughts and prayers to the survivors, intellectually, I know better.
What good would this really do? For starters, an obscure blogger’s words have little to no chance of ever being read by the grieving heartbroken; and, more to the point, I, alone, cannot expect to ever put an end to all of the inevitable, impending attacks; let alone, single-handedly, usher in an enduring civil society.
For America to evolve in that manner, would require courageous, conscientious leaders and legislators, who prioritize the protection of human life over the preservation of their rank, coveted. A+ NRA (National Rifle Association) ranking.
Alas, the long absent, much needed, courageous, conscientious politicians, if not already extinct, certainly do top off the endangered species list.
Regrettably, what we’ve got, instead, are the monstrosities, who value an imbued with excessive power life, over life, itself; who, down to the very core of their rotting souls, adamantly believe political immortality and immorality walk hand-in-hand.
Fortunately, still in existence are the courageous, conscientious political commentators, such as The Young Turks‘ (TYT), Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur. On nearly a daily basis, this dynamic duo posts YouTube content; presides over no BS discourse, which, far more dramatically, can flesh out my above talking points.
HOWEVER, still in play is the matter of maintaining my YouTube boycott (backdating to January 1, 2021. This means that I won’t be WP showcasing this clip.
Yet, seeing how Americans, indeed, freedom lovers, worldwide, could benefit from tapping into that vid’s passion (in particular Cenk’s), in this rare instance, I find it necessary to grant special dispensation.
Hence, we’re hereby linked to that very vid, OFFSITE.
Now, in the event that anyone may be interested, my beef with YouTube centers upon the slew of moneygrubber, muckety-mucks who, think nothing over routinely, platforming fascistic, sociopathic, lying, armed to the teeth, insurrectionist Trumper Republicans; the YouTube powers-that-be claiming they do so for the sake of preserving freedom of speech.
The glaring conundrum: by mainstreaming / normalizing such hardcore righties, they wind up grooming each and every gullible consumer-viewer of Trumper garbage; i.e., end up lulling these severely misled misfits into blind acceptance of fascists, sociopaths, liars, shooters and insurrectionists.
And IF/WHEN that sorta fit-hits-the-shan, folks, that’ll be the downfall of America and our Constitution; ironically, inclusive of that document’s 1st Amendment, Free Speech Rights / Guarantees.
Be people vaxxed or unvaxxed, we
can still shed ‘n’ spread the batcrap
crazy contagious Corona-V; which,
in turn, generates new variants ‘n’
needlessly prolongs the pandemic!
Hence, this easy as pie, cover your
nose ‘n’ pie-hole / shelter advisory:
Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
