Don’t dismiss this act as that of a sick person. It’s an act of a sick society! As a native Buffalonian, I’m wounded, and ashamed. America is utterly intoxicated — drunk on false “liberty”. Mass shootings are now a daily event in America. The Second Amendment, badly misinterpreted by a right-wing Supreme Court, is now understood to say that individual citizens have a right to own military assault weapons, when in fact the 2nd-A assigns the right to each state’s national guard: “A well regulated militia…”. So where are these “regulations” from Congress on individual gun owners, when Republicans in Congress won’t raise a finger to control toxic gun policy — afraid of the gun lobby, afraid of losing their next election? What have these elected officials done to defend America against gunner-bullies? — Nothing. They’re cowards. They serve themselves. And they deserve to be replaced. A vote for any Republican is a vote for more daily mass-murder. (It’s ironic how Republican legislators, and their jurists, are so passionate about defending the yet unborn, while turning a blind eye to those neighbors who are already living next door.)
America is falling-down drunk on its own stooopid notions as to what makes for a free and civilized society. Yeah, “Make America Great Again” by letting every drunken loon in the land own a basement full of assault weapons, extended clips, and ammo. Should we put metal detectors on grocery stores and churches, and all of us buy handguns and flack jackets so we can take down the next lunatic shooter? Well, the white racists of the so-called white race deserve to be “replaced” along with those legislators who pander to them. It can’t come soon enough. (Today I’m ashamed of my pale caucasian face.)
Psalm 75:1 We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks to you! We proclaim how great you are and tell of the wonderful things you have done.
2 “I have set a time for judgment,” says God, “and I will judge with fairness.
3 Though every living creature tremble and the earth itself be shaken, I will keep its foundations firm.
4 I tell the wicked not to be arrogant;
5 I tell them to stop their boasting.”
6 Judgment does not come from the east or from the west, from the north or from the south;
7 it is God who is the judge, condemning some and acquitting others.
8 The Lord holds a cup in his hand, filled with the strong wine of his anger. He pours it out, and all the wicked drink it; they drink it down to the last drop.
9 But I will never stop speaking of the God of Jacob or singing praises to him.
10 He will break the power of the wicked, but the power of the righteous will be increased.
