Random Musings

When we don’t get health care, tax reform, gun control or any of the myriad things that the majority of American citizens want, many people are puzzled and ask, “Why is that?” The answer should be obvious. Billionaires and Big Corporations own this country. It’s that simple. Somewhere in the 1970’s (see Powell Memo), we lost our democracy and became an oligarchy (or if you prefer, a plutocracy). We can do our best to hold back the tide, but ultimately, in the near term, it will probably be futile. I hate to say it and sound so pessimistic, but it is the truth as I see it. They won. We lost. It’s going to get worse for at least a while.

When did they take the words “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State” out of the 2nd Amendment? I must have missed that.

President Trump plays with fire when threatening to scrap the Iran nuclear accord. If Congress were to reject the agreement, trouble would follow. Iran would surely start rebuilding their nuclear weapons program. President Trump would never stand for that and would likely bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. Iran would respond in some way militarily and a new war might erupt. North Korea is not the only country to worry about.

How important is it that we find out the motive of the Las Vegas shooter? Whatever the reason, it wouldn’t justify what he did.  More importantl: that he was able to accumulate such an arsenal of weapons that allowed him to do it. That is where our country needs to turn its attention.
