    When we were kids we had parents that gave us that look! These kids today no longer have parents. I drive a school bus now and l can tell the students who have parents in the house.

    YES! But you have to look a little deeper. Look past the politics! Look at what was happening at the time. It's like watching a magician diverting your attention so he can palm the coin. ALWAYS look deeper when you see something big on the news. Think Ok this is happening, 1 Why? 2 What don't they want me to pay attention to. If you look at all these things this way, you'll see a pattern of diversion & misdirection. And it's darned scary!

    I'm probably going to pi$$ some people off with this but. You're all supposed to be treasure hunters. You all are good at researching, looking for facts & truths, looking past the fluff. Why the heck aren't you applying these talents to the news and the world around you!?!?

    Trump in office is like getting a new principal in school. "Ah shoot" and this guy can't be pushed over. Call it a cover-up, I call it "daddy is home, time to get to work" Why are we so afraid of success?

    Sorry I forgot about this thread, I was just amazed by the stats that In 'Chicago' & a few other cities is getting all this attention like it's the end of the world (Especially Chicago) but these Homicide Rates are near or equal to what they were in Chicago from the late 1960's though to about 1994, & will also bet now there are more people saved by Great EMT's , DR's with better technology that most likely would have died in the 1970-1990.

    People say "Man it's dangerous out there" but in reality (going by FBI Stats) I was much more dangerous in the past in most good-size City's in America . NYC Is a great example of lower Homicide rates Now compared to 2 Decades ago.
    Why in NYC , Nicer people?, Gun Laws/ Sentencing or is it So corrupt that , most everybody in high places be it White Collar or Mafia type groups control the City & they know Homicide is bad for Business ? so when it's gangsta vs gangsta it goes under-reported
    Just my crazy Thinking.

    Why isn't the same approach being applied today?

    Negativland sums it up nicely on their Guns album. It only has two tracks. Then, and Now.


    Then-



    Now-



    The way guns are portrayed in movies and the media has changed a part of our culture's perception of them.
