We can go on and on about hoodies and [George Zimmerman] but it’s not really a discussion until you set aside SOME blame for the democratic politicians who unconditionally surrendered in the fight for sensible gun laws. When are they going to stand THEIR ground?!
…This is a cautionary tale about what happens when the democrats completely lay down on an issue and let conservatives have whatever they want- you get insanity. Arming panicky, untrained, racist vigilantes like George Zimmerman and telling them it’s ok to shoot whenever they’re afraid, is like duping all the milk bones on the kitchen floor and telling your dog ‘just eat when you’re hungry.’
“Stand your ground,” guns in bars, guns in church, guns in the classroom? Where does it end?
Bill Maher on gun control and Florida’s “stand your ground” law
I agree with Bill on this. I wish our country had a liberal party because, frankly, most of our dems are center-left, if that. Hell, a lot of them are center-right. I want more politicians in our government who are willing to stand up to conservatives and the NRA, even when it doesn’t fucking poll well.
The #liberals tag is pretty much a bash liberals and democrats page. nice
i wanted to watch The Walking Dead season finale in peace here……
soooo SB5 got shot down, Mississippi surprised the shit out of me tonight - i was really expecting that “personhood” initiative defining a fertilized egg as a person would get the support it needed, seeing as how super conservative Mississippi is….. kinda makes you wonder how far right the republican party has actually gone - also in Maine we get to bring back same day voting, which lets people vote the same day they register on election day. On top of that i think we got a couple more democrats in state congress seats. The only let down for me was Mississippi approving voting IDs, Im not a big fan of voter suppression, but again, super conservative state. so we got most of what we wanted, Id say. I foresee good things coming in 2012, This is just the beginning :-)
