People say stupid things and overreact all the time. Fox New does it every day. The other day a white guy on that network said other networks were trying to "lynch" Chauvin, as if he understood the meaning of the word.

Then what do you propose? Confiscate guns from tens of millions who use them legally and properly to keep them away from the half dozen a year that use them illegally? Huh? In 2020 over 19,000 Americans were killed in violent gun acts. Are you saying only 6 people did all that? That math is straigh...Jump to post
You gotta be careful with how you post new mass shooting stories. Below you make it seems like Shreveport and Somers are one and the same. But they're two separate incidents!

It's not a "gun culture" issue. It's a mental health issue and it wasn't random. The doctor had stopped providing medication to the shooter and he snapped.

I honestly struggle with what the better outcome is for the US long-term. Does a razor thin GOP hold in the Senate do more to help achieve a rediscovery of centrist deal-making?

Fox News is hilarious. A scan of their home page shows not a single link to any story covering this Russian hack.

The biggest impact would’ve been Sarah Palin becoming Vice President.
