   20 beautiful children are gone. They have no hopes and no dreams. They will never have children of their own. I am so sick of our countries addiction to toxic I can't see. Can we please honor the fallen with some real facts and real conversation or do we continue to have mad celebrity status folks spew ignorance?  

 Let's start with the fact that in a nation where so few have so much some of our children are hungry and without health care. Don't you think Universal healthcare would be a wonderful way to honor those children? Looking out for a future generation? Let's ad removing dark money from elections so politicians aren't bought and we the people aren't sold out. There is too much money floating around a capital that is suppose to be a democracy and not a corporatocracy. Maybe then politicians can see a problem such as high numbers of bullet clips or assault rifles and say we need to protect citizens. The NRA is used as a weapon of mass destruction because they fight against things laws that make sense.
    Let's address the media. We could honor those children by stopping the lies that are told by Fox News. It's 24/7 Be Afraid Be Afraid! They even proved that people who watch that network are less informed. So rather than calling themselves Fox News I suggest they call themselves GOP Talking Points Entertainment. Part of our populayion is walking around fearful thanks to them all the time.
     Now let's talk GOP. I believe it's called TREASON when you make plans to vote against anything a POTUS sets forth after all it was the people who sent him there. GOP you have lost your compass if you ever had one after Eisenhower. Isn't it what's best for the country and not the corporations.
    Supreme Court some of you need to recuse yourselves from cases in which you do not accept those of us who are women and LGBT. The Constitution is an evolving document.
 WE ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION. Find me one document written by a founder that says we are? You can't.
 Now OUR Responsibility is to hold politicians to the fire to do the right thing for the country. Not corporations or big money.
     If we want to do honor to these children we solve the problems. We have REAL conversations. If you read this and said but I work for me and mine only,if greed is what your about don't reply to me because you have lost your way. We are one human family there is no them or us.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    it's called politics. Treason is a very specific crime and for your easy reference it is right in the Constitution. You should look it up.

    Un-fucking-believable.

    You have just restated (and demanded) the Führerprinzip, the overarching philosophical principle underpinning the Nazi state.

    Some things should not even be written here at all.

      Can you imagine if the Democrats had met the night of W.'s Inauguration and made the same plan? They would still be in jail for Treason.

        because the crime of treason has very specific elements and political actions don't meet the requirements. In fact, actions taken by members of Congress when acting in a political capacity have extraordinarily broad indemnity. You can't charge any member of Congress with a crime when they are acting in their role as politicians. Standing on the podium and declaring that you are going to oppose every initiative of the President is perfectly legal.
