Another Day, Another School Shooting

Keep your thoughts and prayers; they are worthless.
Continue to accept money from the NRA.
Continue to blame gun violence on something other than guns.
Continue to believe nations with strict gun laws and low shooting deaths are misguided.

Continue to believe the president of this nation is interested in anything other than
  1. money
  2. the Nobel Peace Prize
  3. money
  4. pussy
  5. money
  6. power
  7. money
  8. permanent presidency
  9. money.
China bought themselves an American president by buying into a real estate scheme in Indonesia.

Follow the money.

More kids have died in school mass shootings this year than Americans who have died in Afghanistan. 

Follow the money.

Megan Markle got it right. She married up....and out. Out of the country and into a family where her presence can make a huge difference. Here 11 year old Meghan Markle on Nickelodeon's Nick News in 1993 flexing her social justice wings for that is probably NOT the first time:

More's the pity, though, because this woman should've been headed into US politics. Women like this are rare, even more so when they're an erudite and articulate pre-teen. Britain and the Commonwealth will benefit from her drive and determination. 

If the Parkland kids got other kids to register to vote, and if the Santa Fe kids can like arms with Parkland who have linked arms with Columbine, who have linked arms with Sandy Hook kids now almost grown up, then we can begin to think about hope.

The midterms are coming. If these kids motivate themselves and the rest of the 18-20 year olds, they will be a formidable force. 

I'm rooting for the kids. They have to be smarter and more savvy than the rest of us. Maybe they will be the ones to lead us outta this morass. 

The Wifely Person's Tip o'the Week
If a guy constantly jokes about wanting to be president-for-life,
he's not joking.
