We don’t need arms races within the United States. But we have them. We need arms control in the United States. But we sorely lack it. The gun rights fundamentalists are trying to weaponize every part of American life, including schools. There are actually people, including Donald Trump, who want us to seriously consider weaponizing … More An arms race in public schools will destroy the public school system. For whose advantage?
I just received this. We should all note that Clearwater Conservancy has hesitated in the past to come out with statements this strong.

Quite literally, the party of family values is making us live out Slayer songs. Singer Tom Araya said, “Regardless of whatever f***ing religion … More Offspring sent out to cry, living mandatory suicide: The GOP & the NRA world is a real-life Slayer album

But that’s not what he did at the State of the Union.
