I have not thought about Sudan in a long time. I’m sorry. I’d hoped with the ‘end of hostilities’ between the Northern government in Khartoum & the South would be a new beginning. Never mind why the Bush Administration did it, for Billy Graham’s fundamentalist gang or what, it still stopped the war and I was thankful for that. At least I was.

As of 2013 a new civil war has broken out. Over 300,000 more people have died. That’s not to mention the ongoing scorched earth policy in Southern Kordofan. Don’t expect much U.N. help, the Russians & Chinese will see to it that no aid comes forth.

I still haven’t forgiven any of you in positions of power for doing nothing about Darfur. You gave the token condemnation & left it at that. You learned nothing from Rwanda, except to wash it off your conscience as 2.7 million people were driven from their homes. An article in the Lancet in 2010 puts the reliable estimated death toll between 178,258 & 461, 520.

Where is Donald Trump in all this? Well, he might be making some positive moves for once, by imposing an arms embargo on South Sudan. Withdrawing U.S. aid to the country, in the middle of the worst refugee crisis in Africa, less so.

I’m not sure if I believe in a heaven or hell. But if there is a hell, Omer Bashir & all the rapist soldiers on both sides have earned a special place in it.

Guns for the Week

facebook-no one taking guns

Talk that compares Banning Knives vs. Banning Guns is spurious at best

A Knife is not a Weapon of Mass Destruction

One has to make an Effort to push the blade through Flesh, Muscle, Bone

Not to mention that nifty outfit you’re wearing

You’re only able to take out one person at a time

And you have to get Up Close & Personal

A Gun removes those limitations

A Gun is Stupid Easy

Depending on the range of your weapon, you never have to go near your target

You can spray a volley of bullets

Hundreds to a magazine

In a matter of seconds

And you never have to get your victim’s blood all over your nice flannel shirt

You would never have to make a Human Connection

To your murder victims at all

Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick blames Santa Fe shooting on ‘too many exits’

If there has been only ONE entrance to their school, this guy would have had a clear shot to pick people off one by one, or shoot them all in a straight line.
Sorry, when is the last time you’ve been to a school, guy? Of course there’s multiple doors! You have 11,000 students going to different classrooms, in different rooms or portables on campus, which they have to get to within a five-minute time period.

Here’s a thought, and I’m just bein’ silly here…BAN ALL THE F—ING GUNS FORM CAMPUS! No gun zone! Gee! Ain’t that simple?

We’ve said #enough. We’ve said thoughts and prayers are not enough. We can’t watch the inaction in Congress go by unexcused. We can’t lose more to senseless gun violence. It’s time to #VoteThemOut.

Go to and commit to change who represents us.
