  •  The carnage continues and the gun Cult says that (11+ / 0-)

    showing the carnage is unreasonable.  What is unreasonable is that one person gets shot every 5 minutes and we just shrug it off because the NRA owns Congress and nothing can get done.  How many more Noahs will be sacrificed at the altar of the gun Cult before we get sensible firearm regulations passed by Congress?

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      and I am sure it has been said before, but this -- for me -- is part of  a larger pattern in our culture of attempting to hide or sanitize the effects of real violence.

      Fake violence is all well and good (and I am not for banning or blaming movies or video games for violence, but I do believe it plays a role in training people to accept horrific acts as being the norm. yeah that seems like a contradiction, but it will take me much longer than reply to a diary to explain what I mean) but, again, the effects of real violence must be hidden. And this is especially true when it happens to Americans. By this I am referring to citizens no longer being able to see the coffins of soldiers that are killed in our wars.
