Pass me the white rose.

My reaction to the latest mass shooting in the US has been a resounding meh.

Apparently local deputies were sent to his home over 30 times for domestic abuse matters but never laid charges which enabled him to pass the background check.

But it’s the fault of white guys with guns so we better confiscate them real fast.

The FBI failed on multiple levels and on multiple occasions but once again …

it’s the fault of white guys with guns so we better confiscate them real fast.

The school expelled him but hushed it up so as to not cause any scandal at their high brow Jewish school.

Hey team USA, how’s that diversity working out for you?

The USA took their most diverse team ever to this year’s winter Olympic games.

The U.S. Olympic Committee says it’s taking its most diverse team ever to a Winter Games, an impressive and deserved boast that requires a caveat of sorts.

Since when did nebulous communist slogans such as equality and diversity become principles in our world? So much for winning the cold war. So how about it, loyal readers? Any of you keen for a tumble in the hay with this Trump hating harpy?

I suppose that should be the point where we get her moving into this week’s hawt chicks and links thread.
