An anguished cry (in the wilderness?) for sanity


The ongoing madness of America's wayward lawlessness with, and of, the availability and use of guns....


"The latest gun-fuelled, mind-numbing horror in Isla Vista, wherein a deranged young man massacred six innocent people, may in fact be "misogynist extremism." It is now also, gruesomely, what Michael Moore calls "part of normal American life." The most heart-rending moment of the carnage fallout has to be the furious cry of Richard Martinez, father of 20-year-old victim Christopher Martinez, who at an anguished press conference called out "craven irresponsible politicians and the NRA" before asking the only question that needs to be asked: "When will this insanity stop?" Chris, both of whose parents are lawyers, was an only child.

"We are a nation founded in violence, grew our borders through violence, and allow men in power to use violence around the world to further our so-called American (corporate) "interests." The gun, not the eagle, is our true national symbol." - Michael Moore"

This year, courtesy of US presidential election, we also have the top 20 fake news stories, the 10 steps for adjusting to a Trump presidency, and the best destinations for those that find they simply ar…

"Wake Up"

The message is loud and clear....and as you watch this, remember that it was on Israeli TV - not some anti-semitic or anti-Israel program somewhere in the world.
