Op-Ed: The Key to Stopping Mass Shootings Is to Pass Sensible Legislation Against Thoughts and Prayers

From The Babylon Bee.

I’ve noticed something. With every mass shooting, there are thoughts and prayers. That’s a correlation — a science word that means “one caused the other.”

Now, I’m a big believer in science. Science tells us about climate change and asteroids. I always listen to science — except economics which isn’t a real science and is very mean. So if science tells me that thoughts and prayers cause mass shootings, then I’m going to act. I’m going to tweet, “Hey, stop it with those thoughts and prayers.” And I’m going to do some more tweets. And then maybe write a bill — or an FAQ summarizing what I want the bill to be since that’s easier. Continue reading

TRUMP 2020

Fights back

Excerpts from an article by Michael Glassner (COO of DJT for President), so yeah, it’s totally biased, but it also makes excellent points:

Dozens of counties throughout the country that voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, but switched their support to Donald Trump by hefty margins in 2016.

The trend was driven largely by ‘hidden Trump voters’ — many of whom hadn’t voted in years, if ever — who came out of nowhere and helped President Trump win one of the largest electoral upsets in American history. Continue reading

PI DAY: I’m celebrating God’s tender care for me this Pi Day. Last night, my favorite pair of reading glasses broke.

I’m getting FOUR new pairs of glasses for $14.90. !!

SS Travis Atkins

HONORING OUR FALLEN HERO: We just received news that President Trump will be awarding Staff Sergeant Travis Atkins the Medal of Honor in a much-belated ceremony at the White House. In 2007, Travis selflessly threw himself on a suicide bomber to save the lives of those around him. His spirit as the Best Man in Absentia was very present at the post-deployment wedding of our Army Princess and her Prince, who was Travis’ best friend. Continue reading

Southern Baptist Pastor Resigns in Disgrace After Admitting He Does Not Like Casseroles

From The Babylon Bee.

WEST HATTIESBURG, MS—Local Southern Baptist pastor Pete Harrison resigned in disgrace earlier this week after admitting that he doesn’t like eating casseroles.

The scandal unfolded after a church congregant unearthed comments made by Harrison in a recorded sermon over 10 years ago, in which Harrison said he preferred “something healthy like a nice garden salad” to “fatty, unhealthy casseroles.”

Dozens of angered church members stormed Harrison’s home with pitchforks and torches hastily assembled out of the church’s unused front pew, demanding answers. The pastor emerged, frightened and sheepish, and made a statement. Continue reading
