    Nothing new just affirmation that repeating a lie creates belief that the lie is true.

    BBC - Future - How liars create the ‘illusion of truth’

    “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels.

    that guy in AZ,

    I am totally puzzled by a lack of reaction to indicators by the country in general. Trump has destroyed whatever respect and honor the office of Presidency has/had. The country has been in a downward spiral with the attack against regulations. It has left the working class with a declining income, is destroying education and I say increasing crime and violence. Trump has a gang that he can count on and they seem to revel and enjoy his outlaw actions. The reaction to any movement to restore opportunity and fairness is an appeal to moderation and centrism. I am convinced that Trump bought into the legitimate and caring public with his tax cut. The validation to Trump's wayward ways can be seen in Bill Gates" graduation speech where he said: "Life is not fair, get used to it". liveabout.com/bill-gates-rules-of-life-... What worries me most is that Trump does not need that many new votes to win. With his base support he can raid the rest of the country with "Healthcare for all whether people can pay", lots of good paying jobs will appeal to the rust belt states and others suffering stagnant wages and Unaffordable Health Care and Make America Great Again (He will appeal to being attacked by Democratics and Fake news). It doesn't matter that none of what he says is true because he only has to convince a few disillusioned people that he can carry on. He doesn't need that many key votes to win. The key to beating Trump is not attacking and criticising him. That plays into his hand. Trump still has that misunderstood and denied power of Charisma to carry him through to victory. The way to defeat Trump is to patronize him promising to carry out his promises in a far better and universal manner.

    The only thing that will stop this kind of mass shooting violence is removing all guns. Removing all guns would probably precipitate another kind of violence. Don't be reassured that the number of gun owners has gone down. It is probably a lot more than polling can account for.

    Common sense gun laws have nothing to do with gun violence. Common sense gun laws is just a front for a possible stand that can be achieved. Then the the supporters can take credit for getting "Common sense gun laws". Don't forget Al gore being defeated by the gun issue and don't forget the Bradley effect. The number of people supporting gun laws publicly can be cut greatly by the people that are lying to pollsters. Just like they did when Trump was running. People were ashamed to admit they were supporting Trump so they lied to pollsters. Clinton lost Congress in the mid terms because of his assault weapon ban, says Clinton himself. New laws are needed that will curb violence but they will affect the sensibilities. Pushing for laws that are political victories but don't stop gun violence can push or let a President to call for Marshal Law.

    Money rules the system. A tax code should prevent any one person from subjugating a government to private wishes and whims.

    Right. The other races plus the interacial influence will eventually blend all the races.

    Connie, It is the fulfillment of a thousand year plan to create a ruling aristocracy. The top % never loses anything. If there is a complete meltdown of the financial system the top % will end up owning everything. So the people that are cheering for a meltdown may be few but they are the most powerful.

    The Swiss Have Liberal Gun Laws, Too

    But they also have fewer gun-related deaths than the U.S.

    Gun laws are the start of the fulfillment of taking away rights. Just as likely to have more deaths than less. The problem is the " I'll do anything to prevent gun violence, but I won't do that". The immediate solution to cutting gun violence is a saturation of higher paid and more police on the job. GIve up the "I'll do anything to prevent gun violence, but I won't do that" and start a comprehensive policing of public areas. The group that is focused on removing guns from private hands is just as stubborn as the NRA. They won't entertain any other solution than reducing and eliminating gun possession. More police responding to new sources of warnings is the solution to reducing gun violence. No single law will reduce gun violence if it is hog tied by restrictions from the anti gun people.

    Blessing or curse is the choice between planning or plutocratic guidance . So far the USA shows more reverence to money than life.
