Posted in Let's get political, My personal opinions

Another mass shooting, and another idiot placing the blame on video games. This guy and those who also subscribe to this bullshit are cowards.

Video games do not cause people to become more prone to violence. This is not my opinion, just a statement of fact. There is zero evidence to support this Republican speaking point. People are dying so often in mass shootings that it’s something I expect to see every day on my news-feed, and that’s fucking terrible, right? But we never do anything after a mass shooting. We never implement any plan to curb this epidemic, so of course the tragedies keep on coming.

Thoughts and prayers are a lazy, useless response. Blaming the problem on video games is stupid. We need to do better, and we can start by just doing something, anything at all. I personally think a good starting point would be to remove from office idiots like this Mayor. If you are elected as a leader in this country, you should at least have a sliver of common sense, but clearly this guy doesn’t give a rats ass about common sense. He’s not qualified to be in charge of anything. Recall his ass, and then recall all the other morons who’ve been trying to place the blame on video games.

We can’t keep doing nothing, and we can’t keep letting our “leaders” get away with doing nothing. We need people to take real responsibility and work together to identify the real issues, then work on some real solutions. Sadly, solving this problem won’t be as simple as throwing out all the games, so people like this mayor can either get with the program, or just shut-up and get out of the way.

I believe all people are bits and pieces, and throughout life we can gather pieces from others or give some of ours away. Some people are only out to take everything they can, while others will give until they have nothing left, but most of us fall in between. And yet there are those people who will defy all logic and simply toss there pieces into the trash, for nobody and nothing at all. I don't know if it's possible to get back those pieces that have been thrown away, but this blog is all about my journey, to try and find out if someone who threw away everything for nothing can find something, or anything at all...I'm just looking for a reason to keep on living.
