It’s Come to This: It’s Time to Ban Trucks! by The Elephant's Child

Gun Control seems to remain as a feature of the conversation. Conservatives keep explaining (and explaining ) that guns are inanimate objects, and it is the shooter who is the problem, but they will have none of that. It’s the guns they want to control. (Since they seem to think Conservatives live in the backwoods of Southern states and are uneducated hicks, possibly they are afraid we will break out of our hideaways and attack them with our guns?)

I was reminded that a large truck, driven by a Muslim immigrant, plowed into a crowd of people in the southern French city of Nice, killed at least 83 people and left 18 in critical condition. It wounded 458.

The scene in Nice was one of devastation, with the heavy-duty white truck stalled amid the bloodshed on the street, its windows smashed and riddled with bullets from police gunfire.

“I saw bodies flying like bowling pins along its route. Heard noises, cries that I will never forget,” he wrote.

Well, clearly, we should ban trucks. Same mindset.


Domestic Battles: The Attack of Inanimate Objects! by The Elephant's Child

Sorry about the light posting the last few days.  My house has declared war on me.  Appliances acting up , my computer crashed about five times yesterday, the kitchen sink requires a plumber, and there was a small child’s birthday to attend.  Some days are like that, but usually not all at once.

I’ll think of it all tomorrow, at Tara.  After all, tomorrow is another day.
