Fine words Beto. Now take those words and thoughts and ideals and run with them for a Texas US Senate seat and get the f**k out of the presidential race where you are helping no one but your own ego. You want lawmakers to do the right thing? Listen to your own words.
There is something not just cowardly, but pathetic about anyone who thinks they have to have a gun as part of their daily wardrobe in order to feel dressed and comfortable.
Not to mention how un-comfortable that makes almost anyone near them, especially in a store or other public, crowded place.
When a culture allows children to be locked in cages and to be shot at will, where is the hope? I say, let it end in fire and blood, and the survivors realize that there can be a much better culture, where we don’t need to solve conflicts with violence. Where we respect All Our Relations. Where we respect our Elders and our Children as the valuable members of the culture that they are. #Eldersarepeopletoo…Name it, shame it, report it, prosecute it. Do the same with child abuse.
