    We have price inflation but with central bank manipulation non of the fallout in equity markets. Got to hand it to those suckers they have rewritten the text books once again . Soaring CPI and PPI and yields going down and stocks going up. But the debt/ crypto is a time bomb.I've heard that now 40 years minus crypto since it was in the billions. But we never had QE and stimulus printing then plus the new tricks since just 2020. Kick the can is now kick the storage tank.

    Sure wish the focus would be on criminals, but this will be blamed once again on guns that came from Republican states. Defunding the police is working quite well.

    The media narrative is "gun violence."

    But the real problem is "violence" by people, who in many cases use guns.

    The problem is violence.

    Tackle that.

    Gun availability is part of the issue. But it's a smallish part.

    If the powers that be would take crime 10% as serious as they talk about guns being the problem, the U.S. would be in really good shape. But they are too worried about hurting people's feelings because a high percentage is committed by a certain race. Yep a touchy subject, but percentages don't lie.

    I'm wondering if the disproportionate percentage of gun-related violence in the African American community has anything to do with poverty, income inequality, and deficiencies in resources and opportunities.

    Appalachia has all these problems too and not the violence.

    Maybe just maybe the problem is

    Lack of fathers in our households
    Lack of teaching accountability to our kids
    Pushing a "me first" narrative
    Lowering belief in religion and increase belief in securalism


    Call me crazy but I believe if we can turn around the 4 things above, it would make a far bigger impact on violence than just blaming poverty, cops and guns

    If you listen to the audio of the shooting outside of the Nationals game recently, those were automatic weapons, which are almost impossible to get for most people legally.

    Yet, criminals have them. Why? Demand. I am amazed that the same politicians can admit in one sentence how the drug war failed, but that somehow once we increase gun laws that gun violence will decrease.

    The guns are already here, and there is demand.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
