Parkland Shooting

Here we go again, second verse same as the first.  A nut-job gets of a gun (legally) and shoots up a bunch of high school students.  My heart goes not to the victim’s families and the town in general.  It

You’re responsible for the dumpster fire!

In a conversation where I found it funny that Oprah and The Rock were both being recruited to run for president (relating it back to the movie Idiocracy), I apparently triggered a lefty-acquaintance of mine to the point that he

My Heart breaks for Charleston

Yet again, we have another nutcase that goes into a place we thought would be a safe haven and murders a bunch of people. His motivations this time are known, though, and he makes no bones about it. He hates.
