... This goes for guns as well. Instead of focusing on the victims and putting the violent away from society, we rehab the criminal so that he can go out and do it again. Then we blame it on the guns, not the individual. There is an easy answer. Prosecute the violent criminal and keep him locked up. Research psychotic drugs used for depression, schizophrenia and others and see if there is an association between these drugs and massive violent tendencies. Allow for the institutionalization of the violent mentally ill. Eliminate all handouts and incentivize personal responsibility

Only in liberal la la land can inanimate objects become independent actors.

When people reminisce about what America used to be like, some act scornfully toward us. They say living in a Donna Reed world was great for a few, but that there were many suffering souls. The way our country is today makes some of us long for those days which seemed so innocent compared to the harsh, cruel, coarse, and sometimes murderous days we exist in today.

Yet most would argue that there were still injustices when we were growing up fifty years ago. Black people who had been freed a century before were still not treated equally in most parts...
