Oh wow new JonTron.
Giving the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention money for gun violence research is a “request to fund propaganda,” a Georgia congressman says.
After the Sandy Hook school shooting, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) was one of a few congressional Republicans who expressed a willingness to reconsider the need for gun control laws.
"Put guns on the table, also put video games on the table, put mental health on the table," he said less than a week after the Newtown shootings. He told a local TV station that he wanted to see more research done to understand mass shootings. “Let’s let the data lead rather than our political opinions.”
For nearly 20 years, Congress has pushed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to steer clear of firearms violence research. As chairman of the appropriations subcommittee that traditionally sets CDC funding, Kingston has been in a position to change that. Soon after Sandy Hook, Kingston said he had spoken to the head of the agency. “I think we can find some common ground,” Kingston said.
More than a year later, as Kingston competes in a crowded Republican primary race for a U.S. Senate seat, the congressman is no longer talking about common ground.[read more]
The fact that they don’t even want it researched should be pretty damn telling.
CDC already did a study under direct order from the Administration, they concluded that legal gun ownership and violence have no relation to each other and that violence is mainly caused by inadequate healthcare and the massive rich/poor dynamic present in the country. They don’t want it funded because it’s already been proven to be a pointless endeavor.
As a Democrat gun owner, please stop making the party look like a bunch of idiots who only read headlines. It hurts the rest of us.
Gun culture in America: people with guns looking for trouble while not respecting the rights of others and bolstering confrontational lawlessness.
Scofflaws do not need snipers as backup. Campus security should not be attacking peaceful students on their own campus.
The top picture illustrates how we maintain our rights
The lower picture illustrates how people can easily be brutalized and taking advantage of by the state if they can’t protect themselves.
I don’t understand the logic of statists who post things like this. They support the brutality as seen in the second picture. That is what they want.
Today, my history professor (with a specialty in historical political systems and theory) told the libertarian that we were arguing with that his ideas were “precious” and that he “needed to read more”. I couldn’t love her any more.
"Today my history professor was super condescending to her student as a way of shutting down dissenting opinions without having to make arguments and it made me feel very happy that this person whose ideas I don’t like was rudely dismissed by somebody in a position of authority because it validated my own feelings and assured me that other views must be wrong. I’m safe from having to question my beliefs… for now.”
There was some debate in the Twitch Dates Pokemon reddit as to what style the art would be in- Pokemon, Pokemon in clothes, antro Pokemon, or Gajinka. I think they decided to do it how Hatoful did, but I’m not sure- I’m not really involved.
I’m not keeping up with TDP, mostly because I just don’t like the Reddit site. Seems like the best solution is indeed the Hatoful method, with the option for human portraits for those who don’t quite feel comfortable playing a silly game dating even an anthro/regular pokemon.
EDIT: Just downloaded the latest test version and it appears that they’re going with pokemon in clothing. At least for test purposes.
MLP blog deleted. I didn’t update it often, but mostly I just don’t want to have any associations with bronies any more :|
