Happy Mothers Day

And how better, in that terminally psychotic country across the big blue briny Great Sanity Divide, to mark the occasion with a parade, bands, happy dancing clapping crowds.... and another mass shooting.

Seems this time it was not one, not two, but THREE gun crazy psychos going bug nut crazy with the bang bangs, shooting wildly into the parade and crowd.

19 victims so far, including a few kids.

19 more to add to the butchers bill.

And the response?

Well, expect Faux to start sounding the Mooslim Terryrist Klaxon(tm), the short term headless chicken twostep to commence, CNN to run constantly corrected disinformation feeds, some fainting couches to be occupied, a few strings of pearls to be wrung, a few rounds of blame gaming and finger pointing, the usual suspect parade of false reasons for what has happened, and the NRA to scream about how this shows you need more and more guns....

.... and bugger all else solid done to prevent this continuing cycle of same old same old month after month.

And by the way...that sound of splashing water?

That's me and the rest of the sane world washing our hands of you.

You are awash in a sea of guns and death, where making money off death toys is more important than saving lives.

You are lost and damned.

Beyond all sane reasoning and redemption.

And its time to damn well wake up from the American Dream, realise its become the American Scream, and cure yourself of this psychosis.


I have none.

as the Thais say... Som Nam Na


8:48 AM PT: ADDENDUM: And if you think you are really living in a post racial society where prejudice and hate are dead.... take a read of the comments below that CNN story.

Wow. Just f@cking wow.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
