Grateful for Guns(?)

 I wonder how grateful we must be for the NRA, I mean without them what kind of real change and implementation could we do to gun legislation?
Do you think when other people sit at home in some state of surprise, they are really surprised at another shooting or are they more surprised on where it happened ?

We must be really grateful to the president of the united states because there is never an act of terrorism that happens in this country unless the color of the persons skin is darker than his. He even offered that this could actually be a case of mental health after he just signed a bill a few months ago allowing those with mental health issues to have guns.

We have to be grateful for our kids to learn what to do in case of a school shooter because if they are not ready to look through the end of a cold metal  gun barrel, than do they really know what living is anyway?

We have to be grateful for our congress and senators sitting on their hands doing absolutely nothing when mayhem breaks out because where else could our tax dollars go if not to pay for them to do nothing? We have to really appreciate how hard they work against us because we keep voting them in office.

I wonder how grateful we must be for the land that imprisons us through fear and poverty because with freedom and wealth we might actually have a chance at a real future.

There is a lot to be said and more than enough that needs to be done but we are so grateful for the death counts to not include our names that we simply let nothing happen to ourselves but to everyone else.


I was sitting at work today reading the latest news wondering what the hell our problem is in this country. Every one is getting ready for the Holiday(s) and talking about all the things that they are thankful for, and I wonder, are we really this grateful for the life given to us that we do nothing to make it better?

When, Where, How and Why

24 Days ago we made our last post and went kind of M.I.A. for a small haitus of our own personal lives. We are back! Where do we even start? How do we begin? Why is this going on?

First and foremost we want to thank our friends, family, fellow podcasters, and overall humans for going out to save, help, and offer their money to all of those who were affected by Harvery, Irma, Maria, and Jose.

Next we want to make a huge shout of love to all those who are still coming to grips with Las Vegas, Nevada. There is nothing we can do besides action in order to change this course of our own history. Find your local Red Cross and DONATE blood to Las Vegas, Nevada or please go visit the gofundme page. Every dollar helps, because in America you have to raise money for victims because our governement will definately not help them at all.

Third of all WE ARE SORRY. We are sorry we do not have the words of comfort, we are sorry we can not offer millions of dollars in relief, we are sorry we can not do more but we are giving our  money, we are making sure we can give blood and will do so if our medical history allows.  We are sorry we live in a country where 93 Americans die a day in gun violence and that no matter how we approach this we are wrong. We are sorry that money owns our government and we are sorry that we could not stop Donald Trump from signing a bill in February allowing those with some mental disorders from owning guns.

And that is how we must start, by first addressing everything one at a time. We have to find reflection in our humanity and in our beliefs that there is a way to find compromise. Compromise means both sides may not be satisfied but there is a form of resolution that allows them to walk away from it with grace and dignity. Peronsally, I do not know the answers, but I do hope as a country that we find them. I hope that we put our religion, our money, our anger, our selfish wants all on the curb and we look at each other by what we hold inside of our hearts as the start to the barganing table. This is, and never has been, an issue of god or politics, this is  a human life issue. I wish money did not take matter over human lives but it does, and the people we elect chose money over life each and every time so remember that when you head to the polls.

I want to thank you for staying with us and know that we will be posting soon again, podcasts will be up and we will try to disect the mercy of human behavior with a few cups of coffee and perhaps a few cocktails as well to help heal the bitter taste this nation has left us with.
