My 7 month old got a Pride romper, it's rainbow coloured. I think more people should immerse their kids into diversity as early as possible so that things that are different are not strange to them.

I think with the ISIS threat (and even if it's removed/powerless there'll be something new), would a real good first step be enacting it where if you're on a FBI watch list, you can't buy a gun???

He's being sardonic.

I have nothing to add to this discussion besides rage and disgust, but I won't decline to mention how opportunistic I find Trump's response to this tragedy. He's a crappy human being.

it is not this simple, if one is on a watch list and then interviewed and no conclusive evidence is found they can not lose their rights, take away his right to have a gun, and he loses his job, there would be many defending him, calling it discrimination. I wish we had a Dept of Pre Crime like in the movie, Minority Report, we don't.

pretending they do not exist or denying the tie to extreme Islamic beliefs is a complete failure of leadership. This is what Obama has done his whole term. Now the worst U S terrorist attack belongs to him. At his press conference to conflate this with the Batman movie terror? mass killing just proves he won't accept this at face value. These people died because they were at a gay night club at the hands of a Islamic extremist.


Marco Rubio, way more Presidential than Obama

Quote:
Florida senator and ex-Presidental hopeful Marco Rubio said the attack was indicative of the way radical Islam views gay people and lesbians.

He told local media: "If you look at the nature of the attack, it doesn't take an enormous amount of coordination to do this.

"We have seen the way gays and lesbians are treated by radical Islam. So in some ways it's not surprising. I am confident the FBI and Homeland Security are on this."

No you fucking don't. Do you not realise the massive injustices this would cause? Didn't you actually watch the fucking movie?

1. it was a movie
2. the statement was for everyone that has a false concept that in a perfect world the system was suppose to stop this from happening

their is no perfect world or 100% system that can prevent these things, there are things we can do that can affect the likelihood of us having more of these incidents or less. Sadly most actions taken lately will lead to the 'more' direction.

You are 100% right.

Limiting access to automatic weaponry seems like a good start.

Or does this theory only apply to things on your side of the talking points memo?

He doesn't give a shit about LGBTQ people, he's consistently been against marriage equality, adoption equality, and civil rights. It's been sickening to see the right wing use this to attack Islam, while they themselves attack the LGBTQ community and use hateful rhetoric and deny them civil rights. Fuck them.

Glad to hear you're safe, LN7. Scary shit.

I'm going to be in Orlando on business this week. I originally thought about donating blood when I got there but it seems that the response has been overwhelming for them.
