In reply to: Today's Texas mass shooting death now jumps to 26 (and counting), tonight! 's message, "Ain't America grand, indeed. The orange one worrying about muslim killers in U.S. ...how about good ol fashioned homegrown terrorism and the 300+ mass murders in U.S., annually." on Sunday, November 05, 07:31:08pm

I live in a murder capital - it's gangs, drugs, increased lawlessness due to lessened police presence, ease of gun availability - including semi automatics, less value assigned to life in general, improper ID/treatment of mental health, glorification of violence in pop culture - as well as trivialization. And my own belief that we have lost our spiritual center as well as the fundamental belief we are here to serve and honor each other. I see all of this and agree we need to stop focusing on the singular political issues and address holistically. But our political system no longer seeks holistic solutions.

You're quite the keyboard warrior (NT)Insults and political bias are sure to solve the problemMonday, November 06, 06:26:43am
    No, national priorities are screwed up. Face and attack the homegrown epidemic of crazy gun killings, not poor million$ into 'leading the way' with Xenophobia, and the myths of outside attacks. (NT)No bias here, just stating a glaring fact at the present climate and failing focus.Monday, November 06, 09:42:09am
