How about the conflictive environment of our country currently? With right wing Christianwhacko racists urging the shooting of illegal immigrants, the shooting and bombing of doctors who offer legal medical services to women who choose not to carry to term? How about right wing nuts like Terry McVeigh, and all the angry, violence prone religious fundamentalists who acredit their fictional god for expressing his distaste via hurricane or tsunami or earthquake for acceptance of homosexuality, same sex marriage, or voting a liberal ticket?
How about the constant media support for celebrating American violence -- our professional soldiers, CIA torturers, weapons manufacturers, and the like. We cheer when one of our drones wipes out an Afghan neighborhood, and cheer again when some self-proclaimed Christian whackos demonstrate at the funeral of a dead American soldier, claiming the death was God's way of showing disapproval for same sex marriages ...
Our unabashed interest for ultra macho film heroes who deal death in all its bloody forms, mostly killing ugly brown or yellow people, with plenty of explosions, chase scenes and a few lesbians tossed in for spice? Why does anyone wonder why Hoolywood invested millions in Zero Dark Thirty -- it's lastest mantra to carnage?
And look how folks like Markle celebrate anything Nazilike ...
And you wonder why nuts like the Newtown child killer grab large-magazine firepower and go into an elementary school to act out the violent video games he's been playing for years?
Markle's right, it ain't guns folks. It's Amerika Inc we should regulate.
Face it, ours is the most violent, war-prone country in the world, several times over. Why? you ask -- because war makes money, why else.
Why else do Americans need AK 47s or M-15s with 30 round clips or even drum magazines? You can't hunt deer with any of those assault rifles, and at the range, they can't touch a good bolt action for accuracy.
We NEED such firepower because it suits our imaginations and counters our massive hysteria of inadequacy and impotence in the face of a world that day by day removes our independence. Face it, Markle, you need big firepower because you like to think it helps offset your own helplessness.

Our parents are no longer parents, it is no longer a stigma to be divorced, or having children out of wedlock. There are no more families. More and more parents have subjugated their parental responsibility to the government, mass media, computers. Kids and young adults text now instead of talk. Government feeds your kids for breakfast and lunch and some for dinner.
Games they play simulate violence for children thousands of times a day, it is no longer real. Plus...IT'S FUN!
