Another Act Of Senseless Domestic Terrorism…

Today’s act of violence by an unemployed 66-year-old white male that injured 5 people, one, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) lays in critical condition, must stop. Lest America becomes a third world country torn apart by political and racial strife and perpetual violence.

Regardless of party affiliation or political ideology this act of domestic terrorism must be condemned and condemned forcefully. The finger-pointing by extreme partisans MUST STOPWe are Americans first and we all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

No one has the right to engage in violence against those they happen to disagree with or  feel disenfranchised by. We have the right to express our differences of opinions, forcefully. We have no right to aggressive violent action against another person except for an act of justifiable self-defence.

It is time for all sides to unite, stand tall, and arm in arm denounce political violence. It is time to begin the work to overcome the problems our people and this nation faces in the 21st century. It is time to acknowledge compromise is necessary if our representative democracy is to ever work again. And it is time for the leaders that We The People elected to start doing their goddamn jobs.

Our hearts go out to those souls who were injured and we hope Representative Scalise fully recovers from his wounds.

    1. Something far too many fail to understand today, or even care to try. At least that’s the way it seems to me anyway. The only justification for an act of violence is in response to an act of physical aggression against your person, property, or family. In other words when defending oneself against aggression (violence).
