11 dead in Pittsburgh neighborhood synagogue. Officials are saying it is a hate crime. I’m not linking a story because it is everywhere.
Hopefully nobody my family is acquainted with.

    As heavy as my heart is for the victims and ashamed that a crime of this nature could take place here, the sardonic side of me is waiting for ol' Turtlehead Mitch to express his 'prayers and condolences.'

    Or worse. President **** **** ****-nozzle not only didn’t cancel his MAGA Rally, he complained that the shooting caused him to mess up his hair. No kidding, this happened. He complained he had to be out in the rain and wind to answer questions and it messed up that **** like if **** on his head that sort of looks like human hair.

    Dear Mr. Trump,
    Resign now!

    The sanctimonious hypocrisy continues.

    This morning on Meet The Press the Dem and GOP House election chairs agreed that the Pittsburgh massacre is horrendous, and that we need to have a more civil discourse and put name calling and finger pointing behind us. Then they basically went into a downward spiral of "you first" and "it's your fault, not ours".

    The GOP big tent now is the size of a pup tent, its floor splattered with guano.

    In fairness we had crazy **** in this country shooting Jewish people long before Trump. Blaming this on him or our currently political divide is just reaching for a fight.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Unfortunately, this. Nothing new here or worldwide.

    We need to bring back public executions for people like this.
