    One reason why so little or nothing is being done to improve the situation in inner cities like the one portrayed in THE WIRE.

    ^ just one question how, I would love to see the inner cities plight relieved, LBJ declared war on poverty in the 60’s to no avail, state and local governments have thrown millions to no avail, again how. just throwing cash doesn’t seem to work.

    I got that way when I was in Houston. That’s life in the big city. Thinning the herd. Saw so many fatal accidents on the road, that I would forget about it 5 minutes later. Saw stuff on the news and think, same old same old.

    The War on Poverty came up short. The War on Drugs has proven ineffective. The NRA maintains a glut of handguns.

    Past time to revisit our approach to all three problems, who knows they may interrelate, just thinking outloud.

    For all you NRA bashers, ever stop to think that the NRA membership does not commit these crimes? Why punish them for what someone else does? The NRA is the only organization I know of that keeps getting criticized for defending the Constitution.

    And yet all conservatives that I know of want to dismantle the ACLU whose sole mission is to defend the Bill of Rights!

    Greed is part of capitalism, but ever stopped to think there is a reason all religions made it a sin?

    • Uhh, plenty of pro-gay groups get criticized, too. And let’s not forget DADT Repeal, which Republicans bashed like crazy. Just trying to defend the 14th Amendment. So … yeah, no.

    The annual 16,000 plus gun homicides (another 15,000 suicides) prove that Wayne La Pierre is on OUR side- he just has his own version of zero population growth.

    Shootings ARE so common in America that they rarely get more than a line or two in the press. They often only get mentioned on a “slow news day” in fact.

    There is a connection between “everyone gets a gun” and “No more taxes” in politics– that tax cut equals fewer cops, medical professionals, and psychiatric care, and more crooks and mental patients on the streets- that’s a connection too.
