These kids these days…(Per Ron Chernow, Hamilton’s year of birth is uncertain; he may have been as young as 19 in 1776.)
Let’s take a trip to 1776;
Alexander Hamilton was 21.
James Monroe was 18.
Aaron Burr was 20.
Marquis de Lafayette was 18.
Yup…we really shouldn’t listen to the young people. Cause they might start a democracy or something crazy like that.

Definition obfuscate: to be evasive, unclear, or confusing
NRA isn’t a “lobby group.” It’s a fellowship organization of gun owners. I can’t take you seriously on any level now that you’ve demonstrated you don’t know anything about the group your smearing. Enjoy your day.

NRAILA is a lobbying arm. Not membership, which I represent, & I, despite some media’s accusations, am not a lobbyist. Overwhelming majority of NRA’s budget is spent on safety & training. ILA spends a fraction of what unions, Planned Parenthood, Bloomberg spend on their lobbying.

But let’s look back at where this all began — with a claim that NRA is not a lobbying organization. pic.twitter.com/8rOnZZrSOe

“More listening”…always a good idea.
Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) tells Trump to tweet less, listen more to what teachers think about arming educators: “They should not be foisted upon this responsibility of packing heat in first grade classes. … Let’s just take that off the table and more forward.” pic.twitter.com/pRyburlQ4K

When somebody shows you who they are, believe them. (Or just go here instead: Beto for Senate)
Take one minute & watch this video of a Republican United States Senator.
This is Senator Ted Cruz of Texas thinking he’s being cute. He’s using an AR-15, the weapon most often used to mass murder children. The Republican party is immature, irresponsible & reckless #CPAC2018 pic.twitter.com/fqbII2de9m

Speaking truth to power, as difficult as it is, is just one part of achieving justice.
Nonviolence, as my father embraced it, is not passive. It acts, strategizes, speaks truth to power, confronts injustice, works for justice & cultivates heart & systemic change. It also believes “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.” #MLK

Scalia. ‘Nuf said. (Although there are plenty that argue that Scalia didn’t say what we think he said.)
Hey gun loving “originalists” who haven’t bothered to even read the 2nd amendment, here’s an excerpt of the SCOTUS decision in Heller-written by model originalist Justice Scalia.

Heroic presidents gonna hero. Oh, wait…
“So what happens is, this guy falls on his face, hits his head, and I thought he died. & you know what I did? I said, ‘Oh my god, that’s disgusting,’ and turned away. I didn’t want to touch him,he’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor”

What if we had state legislatures that would provide enough funds for education so this could become a reality?
After seeing these Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students demonstrate the benefits and foresight and resilience of a quality education by exemplary teachers, every school board should require and fund speech & debate, journalism, and theater programs in their schools.

Dana, honey, just give it up. The tide has turned.
Can someone do me a favor and tweet this @dloesch?
She blocked me and @williamlegate when we tried to point this out. Also @rolandscahill, if this is something you wouldn’t mind amplifying, would be appreciated.#KidsNotGuns #NeverAgain #ArmMeWithBooks pic.twitter.com/sUur9bn8BA
