Briefly...

I believe that neither liberals nor conservatives as a rule{1} really believe in the full Bill of Rights.

The Amendments Liberals do not believe in:

Part of the 1st, the 2nd, the 5th (most of it anyway!), the 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th amendments.

The Amendments Conservatives do not believe in:

The 1st (apart from Citizens United!), the 4th, about half of the 5th, the 6th, the 7th, and 8th amendments.

Note:
{1} Strangely, they both agree on the 3rd and the non-self incriminating part of the 5th.

Briefly...

I will not listen to any purported "solutions" to school shootings or kvetching about lost lives from anyone who blames objects rather than people because such people are too dim to be reasoned with.

Points to Ponder:

"I have come to recognize over time as I have aged (and hopefully done so with some measure of grace!) that divisions between family and friends should have a statute of limitations. Meaning, its normal to feel anger and resentment over some things but there should be some time reasonable time period you decide on that acts as a 'statute of limitations' whereby after said point, you force yourself to forgive and mend fences.

When you are younger, such a time period may be of longer duration by nature as young folks usually think or by default act as if they will more or less live forever. However, the older you get, the shorter the time frame should be. Why? Because carrying grudges only hurts the one who carries them and thus forgiveness can lead to needed healing.

I cannot recall anyone ever saying they regretted keeping a grudge but countless folks have regretted grudges when the time passes for amends to be made. So as you age (and hopefully with some degree of grace!), establish a uniform statute of limitations on any past grievances with others and shorten the time period as you grow older." [Me (circa February 27, 2017)]

If you whine about the Parkland 17 but support Planned Parenthood's slaughter of more than 17 x 50,000 annually, kindly do us all a favour and shut the f up!

CPAC jumped the shark years ago Mona, that they booed you is nothing to get bothered about.
