Stop Sales and Take Away All Semi-Automatic Weapons and Magazines We must do what it takes to get semiautomatic weapons out of the hands of the public-- and we must do whatever it takes. Charlton Heston said that the only we people would take away his guns was from his cold, dead hands. Okay. If you fire at people charged with collecting illegal guns, cold dead hands it will be.

Don't Sanction Oligarchs, Erase Their Existence Including Elon Musk The world has sanctioned a hundred plus Oligarchs tied to Russia and Putin, impounding their yachts real estate and detectable wealth. That's a good beginning, but what really should be done is to literally erase their existence-- not kill them, as it appears has been done to two Russian oligarchs, but take away what they have that makes them oligarchs.

Putin Apologists NATO was bad, so it's okay for Putin to kill babies? I can see criticizing the US for what it has done. I can see and understand being disgusted with the USA's imperialistic foreign policy. But if you are defending Putin, or cheering for him and the Russian Army and its "achievements, its hypersonic missiles, then you are a Putin apologist.

Sanctions On Russian Oligarchs Crack Open the Door to Sanctions on Billionaires Worldwide Dozens of Russian Billionaire oligarchs are being sanctioned as part of the overall response to Putin's invasion of Ukraine.This is a wonderful development in terms of the world's response to dealing with too-powerful, dangerous billionaires. I've been saying for more than ten years that the world must make it illegal to become or be a billionaire. That's a huge goal and these oligarch sanctions are cracks in the wall...

What Does Putin Want Putin is a unique individual in modern history. We have to consider far more possibilities than most are entertaining to understand his motivations and intentions. Some say Putin is the most wealthy man in the world. Maybe he's the wealthiest. Maybe he's just a multi-billionaire or a fractional trillionaire.

Stupid Democratic Policies Will Hand 2022 and 2024 to the GOP Dave Leonhardt writes in his NYTimes Column, San Francisco ousters Why are liberal candidates losing in liberal cities? how liberal candidates are being beaten by centrist Democrats or Republicans. Though I wouldn't call them liberal, I'll tell you why they're losing-- because of stupid, even batshit crazy policies, some of which don't even exist but that the GOP has created as memes and false messaging.

Getting Specific About the Part of Hell Dante Reserved For Politicians Like Manchin and Sinema Here's a little detail to add to your wishes that Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema, some Democrats, Donald Trump and almost all of the GOP rot in hell. They come from my researching Dante Alighieri's book The Divine Comedy, perhaps the most detailed act of revenge ever written, since, in it, he skewers countless foes he encountered in his life.

Listening to some amazing re-do's of classic rock When my daughter got married, I sang the song Till There was You. To prep, I listened to at least 50 versions of the song. That got me in the habit of checking out different covers of the same song.

Going to Brazil for Dental Implants, Veneers, Crowns and Bone Grafts This article details the costs of getting dental work in Brazil. It'll take time getting used to having teeth I can feel good about instead of teeth that embarrass me. The big gap between my two upper front teeth my whole life is gone. I've literally inhibited myself from smiling with a toothy smile, even though, since 1980, I've taught smile muscle anatomy and the power of smiling. I should have done this decades ago.
