These kids are going to save us all!

I actually got excited watching the news this morning, that hasn't happened in a long time!  I realized that these Florida kids are on to something and they are going to change America.  Let me explain...

When a group has been marginalized, victimized, wronged, painted with an unfair brush.. whatever you want to call it, how does said groups initiate change??  They organize!  Organizing is hard, often thankless, and never ending. 

I couldn't help but think about the Freedom to Marry movement for same sex couples.  You had a group that knew they were being unjustly discriminated against so they organized.  They worked hard!  They found the found the right talking points.  They found the right messengers.  They built coalitions.  They elected supporters.  They passed legislation.  They sued.  They had public opinion in their favor.  AND THEY WON!! 

That's what I'm seeing in these kids and I can hardly contain my enthusiasm!!  You know, I'll confess...  I knew this day was coming but I thought this movement would be led by mothers.  Mothers whom had lost their sons and daughters to gun violence.  I didn't think it would be the kids but could you think of a more powerful voice to lead this charge?!!

Save us all??  Really, Jeran?? Hey, I'm optimistic!  I think this is the beginning of the end of NRA owned politicians.  I think folks who stand with these kids will get elected and stand up to bullies like our president and so many of our elected officials who think they are in invincible and blindly follow the NRA's lead!  Maybe we end up banning assault rifles.  Maybe no more kids die in school shootings.  Maybe we get back to a President who actually acts Presidential.  Maybe we de-escalate nuclear tensions.  Maybe... just maybe.

And now for a fresh crop of today's intelligent and timely meme's.

And my personal favorite!!  Folks need a history lesson!  Our founding fathers would be shaking their damn heads!

Thoughts and prayers.. blah, blah, blah

I think I'm asking myself the same question millions of other Americans are asking themselves, when is enough, enough?  Another day, another mass shooting! Another day we see more of our sons and daughters, husbands and wives, nieces and nephews, cousins, grand kids, and friends killed by gun violence!  When is this going to end?

The answer seems painfully obvious to me.. NEVER!  I can't believe the stupid shit I see on social media after we've had another blood bath on American soil! Seriously?? 

You don't think this is a gun problem?  You think this is a faith problem?  You think this is an immigration problem?  You love your 2nd amendment more than your kids and grand kids? You think banning AR-15's, bump stocks, and high capacity magazine clips sets a dangerous precedent?  Well I have no more use for you!

If you can't see that other first world countries have solved this problem with ease and acknowledge that we have a serious problem, and change needs to happen; then you have no credibility with me as an intelligent human being!

The NRA is the problem!  No one should own an assault riffle!  Guns do indeed kill people, 10's of thousands of Americans every year! We are the only first world country with this problem!  The answer is simple! We need gun control now!!!!!

Parody Marriages??!

Rep. Edwards (R Campbell County)
Have you heard the latest on HB 167?  The so called "parody marriage bill" died today for lack of introduction.  Brought to you by Representative's Dumb and Dumber A.K.A Rep. Edwards and Rep. Lone. 
Am I the only one who finds it creepy as fuck that these two are more interested in whats going on in your bedroom than they are with fixing the state's economy??  Weirdo's!!  Vote their asses out in November please!  Wyoming deserves leadership that is actually going to focus on diversifying the state economy and getting us out of the boom and bust cycle!
Rep. Lone (R Laramie County)

Here's a link to the dead bill.

Is coal the (dooming) future of Wyoming?

Can someone please explain this to me? Maybe one of my lawmaker friends who are sponsoring this bill? Why are we looking to penalize wind and solar?? We have so much of this in our great state? Are we continuing to dig our heels into coal? Not interested in renewable energy?? I mean, I don't understand this kind of thinking??

After Gov. Mead has doubled and tripled down on coal, I'm wondering how much lower our Governor and Lawmakers are willing to take this state? Big cuts are coming, make no mistake! State workers, teachers, municipalities.. welcome to the reddest legislature in the country!

Lawmakers introduce bill to penalize wind and solar in WY.

New low!

I mean.... wow!  So many things are debatable right now but Meryl Streeps talents are not!  This really makes you look like a spoiled, uneducated, intolerant, bully, mistake of epic proportions that you are!

Ooops! Foiled again!

I'm really worried about my uncle Cleetus!  He was really wrecked when he heard 'Murica was going to have to pay for this wall!  ANOTHER campaign promise broken!!  He shook his head and headed for the gun safe!  All we could do was try and console him. "Thank the baby Deezus that Obummer didn't take your guns away!!" We tried to reason with him!  He took pause as he was sliding another shell into his high capacity magazine clip... a sly smile graced his face, he paused...we waited.... he said "gimme another pull off da Beam!"  Whew!

We all smiled and chuckled as we filtered out of the house!  We just didn't have the heart to tell him that his coal mining job was NOT coming back and on top of that he was losing his health insurance, his 24 year old (college attending) son was no longer covered under his health insurance, and his dia-beee-tusss, would now be excluded and not covered as a pre-existing condition!

BUT.... Thank God he voted for Trump!  Hillary for prizon, YO!

Another campaign promise gone awry!

Congress is going to pay for the wall!

Ah... OK, got it!  Another lie, another campaign promise you will not deliver to your racist base, and another embarrassment for Murica!!  Is his base about to start turning on him??  Just wondering how many broken promises it'll take?
