Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

Thank You NRA

This is pretty sad and I'd like to thank the NRA for it:

A report released today by the Children's Defense Fund (CDF,) and based upon data collected by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) finds that more children and teens died as a result of gun violence in 2003 than American fighting men and women killed in hostile action in the first three years of the Iraq war combined.

More kids killed by guns in US in single year than total Iraq war casualties

What the heck does deaths in the WOT have to do with kids being killed by guns?

There was just a 16 year old kid here in JAX that blew his head off because he was playing Russian roulette, should we call up Putin and ask him why he caused the kid's death cause he was playing Russian roulette?

Instead of talking about the WOT why doesn't the CDF mention that 2003 showed the lowest number since the study began?
