Trump Call To Assassinate Hillary?

I cannot understand how anyone--however much they might be favorably disposed toward Trump--can possibly justify this. I thought that with the let-the-Russians-hack-her-emails treasonous shtick, many Trump loyals would bail on him. But surely this bit of incitement to violence is so far over-the-top that no amount of side-stepping and spinning can dim the evil that lurks beneath that snide remark. One would almost think he is trying to force people NOT to vote for him?

The REAL Reason for the Hillary Pillory

How Hillary Clinton has been villified for her ambition. Because she is a woman and ambitious women are oh-so-scary.

Orlando Mass Murder: No More Weapons of War and How to Rephrase Gun Control

We CAN and MUST do better to protect our people
  1. First, ban all assault weapons for they are weapons of war and no one should be allowed to purchase or own a weapon of war.
  2. Second, all handguns and rifles must have tracker chips--this may not need to be any more complicated than the microchips on dogs and cats--it gives an identity and a responsibility to the owner.
  3. Third, mandatory background checks on all firearm purchases. Anyone who has a history of mental instability should be unable to buy any firearm ever. Anyone who is on a terrorist watch list or no-fly list should be unable to buy any firearm ever.

  4. Make gun control a significant factor in Homeland Security. Let the HSA and the NRA duke it out.
  5. Make gun control about security and safety--which it is--rather than some antiquated amendment that has been taken way out of context and way out of keeping with the current technology level (hand-loaded musket balls in the 1700s could be reloaded and fired four rounds per minute, while assault rifles can fire 800 rounds per minute).

Brave New World for Women

A major barrier has been overcome. My generation knew women could be astronauts and firefighters and senators, and I am grateful for that. Now, my daughter will grow up in a world where women presidents.

Brock Turner and the Inflatable Doll Culture

Brock Turner was not seeing his victim as a human at all. She was his inflatable doll. Sick and wrong to treat any living, breathing person like he treated her. And then Turner's dad chimes in with that fanatically sexist 20-minutes-of-action comment. I just thought, it took Martin Luther King's assassin one minute to kill him. Did that make him innocent? 20 minutes my butt! Perpetuating the rape culture and perpetuating the women-as-objects culture? That's what the Brock Turners of this world and their sexist fathers are doing. How does their daughter feel about the whole incident? Will she go out into the world and be the victim of sexual abuse and the abuser gets away with it because, well, it was only 20 minutes of action--out of a whole lifetime.
