Weep!

Weep for the Uvalde parents. They will never again hear the laughter of their children. For the grandparents, uncles, and aunts who will never again receive those precious hugs and kisses from their beloved grandchild, nephew, or niece.
Losing a child at any age is gut-wrenching. But to lose one’s child while attending school, where they are supposed to be safe, is incomprehensible. There is no comprehensive explanation for what took place in Uvalde. None.
Time to call a death cult for what it is and kick over the propaganda they use to excuse their sociopathy. The Republican Party is Pro-Death and must be stripped of its power to inflict more unnecessary death on innocents.

A war is being waged against us; a real war effectuated by the slaughtering of unarmed civilians by heavily armed ultra-extremist sociopaths supported by the Republican Party and the lobbyists bought and owned by the gun industry.
What you see in these RW Republican politicians on most issues is pretty consistent support for allowing the deaths of others to poverty, guns, wars, old age, etc.. Their "pro-life" position on abortion is an anomaly...and that's because to them, this issue isn't really about religious beliefs or compassion, It's about something else far more crass and cynical. It's about power.
