Bob, I am starting to come around on the Tulsi train... I have been on board with Buttigieg for a while.

Sadly, Kamala Harris WILL win the democratic primary. I'm around 75% confident of that.

I'd take that bet IF I was in KC and could shake on it Tangy. Too much baggage. Too many enemies. I forgot to mention Castro earlier, Julian, that is. I think Fidel died, and Ramon is way busy. Seriously though, Castro has looked sharp in both debates. Really schooled Biden IMO. Made him look old, though that ain't hard, is it?

Has she made enemies? Biden, but he's on the way out. Baggage? No one cares about her baggage, let's be honest.

I will gladly vote for Booker, Warren, Sanders, Mayor Pete, Castro, and Inslee, and I will reluctantly vote for Biden, Harris, Warren, Klobuchar, Beto, and the Colorado boys

Every time we have a multiple shooting we have to deal with this absurd period of the political cycle being dominated by what frankly remains a very minor issue. Don't get me wrong, I've never been opposed to some basic gun control, starting with a reasonable assault weapons ban. But it's not the kind of priority that people try to make it. This is probably the most egregious example right now of the media controlling political priorities and pushing them away from more significant problems.

The reality is that mass murders are still only a small fraction of homicides in the United States. And murders lag comfortably behind auto accidents and suicides among causes of death - to say nothing of heart attack, stroke, and cancer. Similarly, how many people do you think died in school shootings in the past year? I'll give you a hint - you can count them on one hand. How much money has been spent nationally protesting against school violence, defending against it, etc. Close to 3000 school-age and younger children die each year in auto accidents. 350 drown. What do you think is a better allocation of resources - a few million for an informational campaign on the risk of drowning in backyard pools, or billions nationwide to combat school shootings? A 1% drop in drownings would have saved more lives this year than a 75% reduction in school shootings. A 1% drop in drunk driving - about 500 minor fatalities per year IIRC - would blow away stopping all the school shootings.

It's not that it's not a tragedy. I'm not trying to argue that. I am trying to argue that the media presentation of mass murders and school shootings clouds the relative significance of such events as a real threat to the American people. There is much lower-hanging fruit if we want to save some lives.

i am biting my tongue...but
you are one heartless sob.

mass murders in this country with these guns getting more and more frequent is a true threat to quality of life everywhere.

i dont get your shtick but it aint cool.

It's not heartless. We have limited resources. The most compassionate thing to do is allocate those resources where they will do the most good.

It is an absolute, undeniable fact that combating mass murders and school shootings is not the most efficient allocation of resources.

The fact is that a lot of people aren't interested in perspective, they're interested in being outraged. But emotions are rarely a good guide for policy directions.

This is patently false. The only threat to quality of life is the perceived threat of violence, driven by media coverage.

The reality is that homicide rates are lower in the past 5 years than they have been since the early '60s.

some people never cease to amaze.

Tell me what that I just said is wrong.

Of course you can't. You're having an emotional reaction to the fact that I want to prioritize issues differently than you do. You have no factual arguments whatsoever.

Poor dahs. Haven't you learned that dino has no use or desire for actual facts and truths? He doesn't let silly things like those get in the way of his irrational, hate-filled rantings. Spreading hate, divisiveness and paranoia is his answer to everything. Well, that and giving "free" stuff to everybody.

Much as I'm sure he ignores the fact that the detention centers were built by a Democrat, I'm sure he also ignores how many Democrats have been in office and had a chance to do something about gun control laws. Why didn't they do something? Because they're no better or worse than the Repubs? Doesn't matter at all to dino - he just wants to keep sprewing garbage and hate. "Interesting" theory on how to unite people, isn't it?
