Cool tune. Thanks for such a great cause as well.

Andy Cohen

The weapon or gun laws did not cause the shooting. The failed system that let that nutbag fall through the cracks while everyone looked the other way did.

The authorities were aware of the shooter , nearly 40 instances and he was even posting about killing animals on his Facebook page, yet nobody did a f*cking thing-but its the guns? No.

The March for Our Lives thing is just another money grab, just like Black Lives Matter and similar . Follow the trail and you will see who is truly benefiting from the shameless political prostitution of these dead children just to rake in money for a cause du jour The whole thing is sickening.

Citations from legitimate news sources?

Clara Seller

The music is excellent.

Asking anyone for legitimate news sources, these days, ugh. Our government didn't tweak the Smith-Mundt Act in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 for fun. Just like when they opened up the flood gates of corporate money in politics, when they opened up the flood gates of propaganda everything became tainted. Finding truth in our information is like panning for gold in the 1800's.

We don't have to believe Andy Cohen, but we can't run to our media outlets to disprove him. It's perfectly legal for them to lie to us and there is plenty of in-your-face evidence that they have done just that.

Beware, when our information sources start saying the same thing. It might be a lie, or not. We have no way of knowing.

"Our government didn't tweak the Smith-Mundt Act in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 for fun"

Reading up on this, the motivation for tweaking it was to bring the original act from the 40s up to date with the Internet age, so that US citizens accessing, for example, the government-funded Voice of America online while in the US, wouldn't run the operation afoul of regulations. The update also includes this specific injunction:


"No funds authorized to be appropriated to the Department of State or the Broadcasting Board of Governors shall be used to influence public opinion in the United States."
