Ellen DeGeneres …. “💞 Parkland Shooting Survivors Talk …. Gun Control and Conspiracies 💞 …. “!!


~~February 23, 2018~~ 

STRONG, YOUNG VOICES SPEAK

I see them as hope for the future.

The adults have failed them. This fight is theirs now. I’m hoping and wishing that they do prevail.

They are amazing teenagers, much older than their years, who, in one week, have seen their sense of safety shattered.

Let these videos speak for themselves!

Parkland shooting survivors talk gun control and conspiracies on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

~DAVID CANFIELD~

February 23, 2018 
Three survivors of the mass shooting last Wednesday, February 14, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, joined Ellen DeGeneres on Friday. February 23, to continue spreading their advocacy of stricter gun laws.

DeGeneres was joined by Emma González, Cameron Kasky and Jaclyn Corin, all of whom have made major public appearances over the past week, to discuss the conversation that the Parkland tragedy (wherein 17 people were killed) has sparked and what’s being done to keep it going and to turn it into real policy change. “You all are amazing,” the host said to them at the beginning of the segment.

The students touched on a variety of topics, including their widely-watched CNN Town Hall on Wednesday evening in which, among other highlights, Kasky confronted Senator Marco Rubio and asked him directly whether he’d continue accepting money from the National Rifle Association.

As DeGeneres continued to praise the students’ efforts, González clarified that it was her school that gave her the tools to make sense of and respond to the tragedy.

“We are thankful to have been in a school that educated us almost perfectly to handle this situation,” she said.

Kasky added that he’s felt some guilt for what it took to spur him to activism.

“I wish I had been able to be a part of this before I had to feel it at home,” he said. “I almost feel guilty … It took us feeling that anguish for us to get involved, but we’re here now. But we just have to keep going and realize that we’re here to fight the good fight.”

He later quipped, in regard to the conspiracy theorists accusing students like González and Kasky of being paid actors on behalf of anti-gun efforts, “If you’ve seen me act in school productions, you know I’m not somebody who deserves any money for acting.”

WE CALL BS

~Parkland School Shooting~

By now we all should be aware of the senseless mass shooting that took place at a Parkland, Florida high school.

Here’s John’s take.

“We basically automatically already know how each side will play out,” said Oliver, laying out the script that we’ve sadly gotten used to seeing.

“Thoughts and prayers. Fuck your thoughts and prayers. It’s a mental health problem, but it’s also a gun problem, and then someone says, ‘Now’s not the time to talk about gun control’, and everyone moves on until it inevitably happens again.”

“But this time felt slightly different,” says the host. “Because when the ‘Now’s not the time’ argument came out, the kids from that school said, ‘You know what?

Yes it fucking is.’”

It’s nothing short of amazing that amidst their grief and anger, they’re fighting so other students can feels safe in schools. It’s nothing short of infuriating that their bravery is being dismissed by those who refuse to listen.

Oliver pointed to how in response to the question of whether or not Republicans would take notice of On the March For Our Lives next month, CNN analyst Andre Bauer seemed prepared to blame literally anything except gun laws: rap music, television, Tide pods, etc.

‘Thoughts and Prayers’ …. “😡 Every Time it Happens …. Over and Over and Over …. Blood Money 😡 …. “!!


There’s not much more I can add.

The video explains itself.

Tired of this vicious cycle of repetitive violence and death.

It’s time for action … not thoughts and prayers!

EMMA GONZALEZ

THE VOICES OF THE YOUNG

In the midst of a terrible mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, young voices are loudly raising to decry the lack of action from GOP politicians, including the ‘so-called president’, who are beholden to the NRA in view of the political campaign donations.

They have been bought and paid by the NRA.

This has to change.

It seems the generation coming up will not accept this!

Florida school shooting survivor SLAMS Drumpf and Republicans for doing NOTHING to stop mass shootings

🔥 🔥 🔥 EVERY WORD of this is FIRE 🔥 🔥 🔥

“They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS!
They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. We call BS!
They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars. We call BS!”

Thanks to Emma González for giving this AMAZING speech.

Emma González, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who survived Wednesday’s mass shooting, gave a blistering speech at an anti-gun rally on Saturday about the politicians complicit in the murder of her classmates. It was yet another reminder that the teenagers and children who grew up in the shadow of school shootings (and the 150,000 who survived one) are more practical – and less tolerant of empty rhetoric – than the adults who are supposed to protect them.

González had no use for crocodile tears from Drumpf, who was in Florida on Friday, February 16, to offer his condolences (and, reportedly, to drop by a Studio 54 theme party at Mar-a-Lago):

If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy, and how it should never have happened, and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money

he received from the National Rifle Association.

But hey, you want to know something?

It doesn’t matter, because I already know: $30 million.

To every politician who is taking donations from the NRA, shame on you!

BLineNRABLine

In February of 2017, one year ago, Drumpf repealed an Obama-era regulation that would have made it easier to block the sale of firearms to people with certain mental illnesses.

I don’t need to be a psychologist to know that repealing that regulation was a really dumb idea. Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa was the sole sponsor of this bill to stop the FBI from performing background checks on people adjudicated to be mentally ill, and now he’s stating for the record, “Well, it’s a shame that the FBI isn’t doing background checks on these mentally ill people.” Well, duh: You took that opportunity away last year! The people in government who we voted into power are lying to us. And us kids seem to be the only ones who notice and are prepared to call BS.

Hallelujah

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’.

My tattoo artist, Stacy, showed this cover to me three days ago.

This song soothes my raw feelings.

It calms me, it centers me.

In the days after another mass shooting in Florida, this song comes to mind.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scott Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990’s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material.

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine listed him at number 39 on their list of greatest singers of all time. In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue.

On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4.

Jeff Buckley

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah …
