A MUSIC VIDEO FOR YVONNE FAIR’S INCREDIBLE “IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME”

From the incredible Norman Whitfield produced album The Bitch Is Black.

IF YOU WANT PROGRESS, YOU WON’T VOTE FOR HILLARY

Hillary and Biden sided with Republicans to support George W. Bush’s atrocious war in Iraq. Bernie Sanders did not. Nor has Bernie wavered in his support for gay marriage, unlike the constantly waffling–I mean “evolving” Hillary Clinton. Yet gays support Hillary despite her only supporting them when it’s convenient. There is nothing progressive about her. So vote for Hillary if you DON’T want progress leadership.

HUFFPO: “Max Cleland, John Martha, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters and others within Congress had the same intelligence reports as Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush.

However, they voted against Iraq. They never blamed faulty intelligence for their decision. Then never had to make excuses for their vote.

In fact, 20 Democrats in the Senate and one Republican (Lincoln Chafee) voted against the Use of Military Force against Iraq. In the House, 118 Democrats voted against the invasion of Iraq, including an Independent from Vermont named Bernie Sanders.

Yes, before the Democratic candidate for President in 2016 voted against invading Iraq, the Independent from Vermont voted against the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996 under the tenure of a Democratic president. While Democratic icon Hillary Clinton opposed gay marriage until 2013, the Independent from Vermont chose to uphold progressive ideals pertaining to gay rights. The Independent Senator also voted against the Patriot Act, while Democratic Senator Clinton voted for legislation the ACLU calls “unconstitutional.”

While some naysayers gleeful claim that Bernie Sanders isn’t a Democrat, they conveniently forget that he stood up for liberal principles when they weren’t popular, and when Democrats like Hillary Clinton aligned themselves with the GOP. Nothing exemplifies the difference between Clinton and Sanders more than the speech given by Representative Bernie Sanders in 2002. Opposing the Iraq War, Sanders foreshadowed the dire consequences of removing Saddam and engaging in a counterinsurgency war without an exit strategy:

Bernie Sanders recently won the Congressional Award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, in part because he has always worked to protect American soldiers and veterans. In his opposition speech to Congress, Sanders states clearly in his first reason to oppose the invasion that, “I have not heard any estimates of how many young American men and women might die in such a war.” Ultimately, 4,492 American deaths (up from the 4,486 American deaths I cited in November of 2014) and 32,223 Americans wounded in action would result from Congress and the Bush administration ignoring Bernie Sanders and other voices of dissent. As for the nature of Iraq and Afghanistan wars, between half and two-thirds of all the Americans killed or wounded in both conflicts were the victim of IED blasts according to the Department of Defense.

However, not all liberal politicians shared the views of Bernie Sanders, Max Cleland and others. Armed with the letter “D” next to her name, Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton voiced support for Bush and Cheney’s military objectives, and her speech to Congress (Library of Congress transcript) echoes the exact buzz words and talking points of the Bush administration:

SNOOP DOGG IN BLOND WIG AS A WHITE GUY IS QUITE BIZARRE

“Todd” is quite the kook! I didn’t exactly laugh or get offended at the idea that he thinks white guys are too nerdy to get laid. Especially since I don’t have sex with white guys myself! But it’s something to see. If you are very bored. And you are, or you wouldn’t be on this blog.

MY 9/11 REMEMBRANCE AND WHAT ELSE WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET

Like many of you, I  remember exactly what I was doing when I heard about 9/11. I was grabbing breakfast at Murray’s Bagel’s on 6th Avenue that morning as everyone ran out into the streets shouting. I joined them and actually watched the second tower fall. I will never forget it. Like most, I ran home and turned on the news, which I stayed glued to for several days trying to comprehend the horror as the grisly details rolled in. I took this photo today of workmen observing a moment of silence near St. Vincent’s Hospital where many 9/11 victims were rushed to. I’m sure these workmen felt a special kinship to the tragedy since in times of trouble, we often look to their bravery and brawn to rescue us. Were the rescue workers risking their health with exposure to fiber glass, smoke, flames and wreckage? Yes, but they placed others’ needs above their own. Heroes.

IMG_2665_2

It’s hard to imagine anything as sinister as hi-jacking planes to flying them into buildings. Yet, equally sinister forces were already at work within the Bush administration. George W. Bush had cluelessly ignored warnings only weeks before that Osama Bin Laden would use planes to launch an attack on American soil.  Cluelessly, unless Bush wanted the attacks to happen. I’ve never really delved much into the conspiracy theories surrounding the World Trade Center fiasco because what we know happened after 9/11 is  disturbing enough. Bush used the 9/11 attacks to scare us into thinking there was a need for war. A war with Iraq–which had nothing to do with Al Qaeda and which possessed no weapons of mass destruction. The USA lost thousands of soldiers in this pointless war and many more returned injured physically and psychologically. Up to one million Iraqis were killed by us–for absolutely no reason. Torture and other war crimes were committed under our name and with our tax dollars. This was our nation’s biggest foreign policy blunder in decades and it has created generations of terrorists who may seek to attack us for the rest of our lives. And our news media failed to keep us informed–both CNN and the New York Times both apologized after the war was in full swing for not asking harder questions of the Bush administration in the lead-up to invading Iraq.

Many of the career politicians running for president today were active in our national government in 2001. And many of them are now clamoring for a war with Iran, a country in the Middle East with only one letter different from it’s neighbor Iraq. Almost all GOP candidates want war over diplomacy in Iran. As most Republican politicians normally rally for war over diplomacy. Hillary claims she backs Obama’s Iran deal, with a few caveats. And she’s stated hawkish positions towards Iran in the past.

Senators Clinton and Joe Biden voted to go to war in Iraq. Senators Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders did not. Hillary was representing the state of New York, so it would have been hard for her to not green light an attack on the group behind 9/11. Except that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. I’m a drag queen with no access to government intelligence–how could I possibly know that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq yet somehow that fact escaped her? It would have been unpopular for her to vote no on the Iraq war as a senator from New York. But sometimes leaders must make unpopular decisions in order to do the right thing. In hindsight, we all know the Iraq war was wrong and that some senators were brave enough to vote against almost a decade of senseless carnage. Never forget that either, or the US is doomed to repeat it’s same mistakes.

 

HILLARY WANTS BIG MONEY OUT OF POLITICS LIKE MILEY CYRUS WANT TO BAN NUDITY

Hillary Clinton had the nerve to state Tuesday that she supports getting money out of elections. I guess that means she’s retiring from politics! Clinton isn’t stupid, but I guess she thinks voters are too dumb to put two and two together and scratch their heads over a candidate who’s the anointed Democratic frontrunner only because she can afford to buy the election. Now that she has her coins from the same big banks Bernie Sanders wants to break up, she suddenly wants campaign finance reform. Ideas she jacked from actual liberals Sanders and Lincoln when he started to appear honest (which was never Hillary’s strong suit) with his contributions from only small donors. She will say and do anything to get elected. It doesn’t even need to make sense. Hillary’s statement is like Miley Cyrus saying she wants to ban nudity and desperate publicity stunts. She now wants to ban what she’s doing for years? Then please give back all that money you’ve gotten from corporations and start fresh with small donations from individuals only.

The article below is from a right-wing investment-themed site which clearly has no issues with big money. But that doesn’t mean they can’t dish the dirt effectively on her blatant hypocrisy, which our kiss-@ss “liberal” media refuses to do. She represents nothing.

“Politics: Trying to revive her flailing campaign, Hillary Clinton has proposed a new campaign finance reform to limit the influence of big donors. That’s easy for her — she’s already raised millions from them.

Fast losing ground to Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, Clinton sounded a populist note Tuesday, issuing a sweeping campaign finance reform plan that would require greater political spending disclosure and give matching funds for small donations to federal elections.

“We have to end the flood of secret, unaccountable money that is distorting our elections, corrupting our political system and drowning out the voices of too many everyday Americans,” Clinton said. “Our democracy should be about expanding the franchise, not charging an entrance fee.”

Fine rhetoric, we suppose, but it should be noted that Hillary Clinton is one of the largest recipients of “big donor” money in the American political universe.
Federal Election Commission filings in late June showed Clinton raised $48 million from more than 250,000 contributors. According to the nonpartisan campaign finance watchdog Open Secrets, 82% of Clinton’s contributions come from “large individual donors.” And that doesn’t include money from super PACs, which have raised $20.3 million on her behalf.

Her top donors read like a Who’s Who of Wall Street, law, high tech, liberal academia and Hollywood. Morgan Stanley. Creative Artists. Latham & Watkins. Time Warner. Yale University. University of California. J.P. Morgan. Google. All make the list.

A lot of the cash has been raised by “bundlers,” powerful friends of Bill and Hillary who use their influence to bring in boatloads of money. They include Hollywood media mogul Haim Saban, billionaire J.B. Pritzker of Chicago, Las Vegas publisher Brian Greenspan and Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit.

You know, the little people.

Moreover, as the Wall Street Journal reported in July, “Twenty of the campaign’s so-called Hillblazers, or supporters who promise to raise $100,000 each for her campaign, have also given a total of at least $54 million to her family’s charitable foundation.”

But sure, she’s going to clean up campaign finance.

Oh, and Clinton also wants to overturn the 2010 Citizens United ruling — the only thing that stands between Americans and their right to free political speech.

From desperate candidates come desperate ideas. Hillary’s hypocritical reforms are just the latest example.”

DINA MARTINA IN FLAT & LACKING

If you like your drag surreal and hilarious, Dina is the ticket. She’s been killing in Provincetown all summer and heading to NYC with an all new show.

Cult sensation returns to NYC with a surreal comedy that you have to see to believe.
September 19 – 27 at The Laurie Beechman Theatre

DinaMartina2015-300x175

“The most original drag queen working in America today.” — Village Voice

“Compulsively watchable” — Time Out

“Goes way beyond drag into some new kind of twisted art.” – John Waters

“What you get when you mix Carol Channing, Ann Miller, Richard Kind, Casey Kasem and ‘lipshtick’ laced with radioactive iodine.” — BoyCulture

Cult sensation DINA MARTINA returns to New York with DINA MARTINA: FLAT & LACKING at The Laurie Beechman Theatre. After attaining cult status in her native town of Seattle and touring nationally, Martina’s official New York debut in 2005 sold out in minutes. Her follow-up shows have left jaded audiences (including Michael Stipe, Whoopi Goldberg, John Waters, Matt Stone, John Cameron Mitchell, Margaret Cho, Bruce Vilanch, Joyce Dewitt, and Jeff Stryker — a list as strange has her shows) stunned and clamoring for more.

DINA MARTINA: FLAT & LACKING, like all of Martina’s surreal shows, is a nearly indescribable night of unique entertainment that assaults the senses like no other show. Once again, Dina offers a delightful blend of unequalled song, unnecessary dance, unattractive costumes, and unbelievable video. Perhaps the best description of Dina comes from a glowing review in Seattle’s famed alternative weekly The Stranger: “Her voice sounds like a cat having an epileptic fit on a chalkboard, her body moves like two pigs fighting their way out of a sleeping bag, and her face looks like the collision of a Maybelline truck with a Shoney’s buffet. But Dina redefines what it means to be a star.”

DINA MARTINA has packed venues throughout Seattle as well as in Provincetown, Philadelphia, Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco and London. Martina has shared the bill with acts such as Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, Justin Bond, Nina Hagen and The Village People. She’s the recipient of two GLAAD Media Award nominations for Best Off-Off-Broadway Show, two Footlight Awards from The Seattle Times (1999 & 2004), a 1997 nominee for a Seattle Stranger Fringe Theater Award for Best Solo Show, and a finalist for the 2007 Alpert Award.

DINA MARTINA: FLAT & LACKING runs September 19, 20, 25, 26 & 27 at 7pm at the Laurie Beechman Theatre inside West Bank Cafe (407 West 42 Street at 9th Avenue). Tickets are $25. A full dinner menu and a full bar are available; there is a $20 per person food/drink minimum. To purchase advance tickets call 212-352-3101 or visit www.SpinCycleNYC.com.

A THOUGHT ON THAT EXCERPT FROM GRACE JONES’ NEW MEMOIR

I adore Grace Jones and always have. So of course I’m orgasming over her book and this excerpt. But I’m really getting sick of sensationalized headlines, which can belittle the person whose opinion is being expressed in favor of some buzz topic. Remember that John Waters article which was widely forwarded recently with some title like “We Can’t Even Make Fun Of Caitlyn?” I guess in a way Waters was playing the press by commenting on the subject du jour, Caitlyn Jenner. But I kinda doubt that he brought up that dullard. Here’s a man considered to be a groundbreaking genius, and instead of discussing the London art exhibit which was the point of his interview, he’s forced to discuss things that are way beneath him. And barely mention his art.

So this headline blares that Grace “slays” pop stars who are popular now. What Grace presented was so strong that of course it’s been copied and of course it’s been an influence on many. While I understand that the gossip is the lure for many people, who may see Grace only as one hit wonder from the 80s who’s returned to read today’s pop stars, the most interesting line in this interview to me is this:

“…now that Vegas is the whole entertainment world filtered through the internet, through impatient social media.”

I’ve only encountered Grace out in party or work mode, but I relish hearing what this brilliant performer has to say about her own career, art, choices, love life, history, whatever. Not just singling out a passage in which she discusses her more famous inferiors just to make headlines. I didn’t even see her mention Kanye. She doesn’t need to “slay” anyone with gossip. She slays with her art. Her book comes out on 9/24 on Simon and Schuster.

One of music’s most original thinkers throws a whole load of shade at copycats, clones and fake divas as she reveals how she fought for her fame

DEMS SUPPORT DIPLOMACY WITH IRAN? NOT HILLARY!

So Americans are said to be weary of wars in the Middle East. And with his “historic” Iran deal, Democrats have (barely) demonstrated that they support Obama’s diplomacy with Iran over Republican’s constant cries for war. So if Americans want peace, particularly Democrats, how could this Hillary the hawk be Democrat’s choice for president? That doesn’t live with our battle fatigue or fondness for diplomacy. Check out Hillary’s 2008 comment and remember that she also foolishly voted for the Iraq war as NY Senator, when she could afford to buy that election. Be very careful when presidential wannabes make threats of war. No one ever imagined that George W. Bush would declare war on Iraq, but a hawk’s a hawk. All of those parents who signed their kids up in the military to straighten them up or get money for their college never dreamt that a decade of war against a country which never attacked us was on the horizon.

A VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN IS A VOTE FOR HUGS

I have absolutely no idea what is going on with the alleged Joe Biden campaign. Is he running? Is he not running? When will we know? October? Isn’t that kind of late? There are lots of questions and I have a few. I simply don’t trust the narrative that our news media is feeding us. I also don’t trust the Democratic party establishment to tell us the truth–just look at the tainted frontrunner Hillary. Remember how Senator Obama gave that rousing speech at the Democratic National Convention which put him on the map as a presidential contender? No senators or governors have been groomed as political rockstars other than Elizabeth Warren, who swears she isn’t running. I guess the party assumed that everyone would be happy with Hillary so why bother with any other choices?

Then Bernie, who is perceived as honest, started surging and Hillary’s looking weaker because can’t shake the scandals. Whether she’s guilty or not, the perception that she’s crooked has stuck. Suddenly a week ago, all the buzz was about Biden and Hillary got to comment to the press on the new candidate who might be running rather than repeatedly defend herself against alleged improprieties. Seemed like a distraction to me. To give Hillary a new topic to discuss apart from emails and to make Democrats feel that they have a wider choice of candidates as Republicans do. And perhaps the Dems are afraid that a truly progressive candidate like Bernie would force them to clean up their rotten act as a party should he take the lead. Democrats have become so “centrist” (aka GOP lite) under Obama that the last thing they want is a candidate who would actually tax the rich, tax the corporations, break up the big banks, defense industry etc. Establishment Dems are too busy taking donations from these groups to speak out against them as Bernie does.

Then we hear that Biden has met with Elizabeth Warren and that she has suggested that she won’t run for the Senate in 2020. Is this a smokescreen to make Dems who aren’t thrilled with Hillary think: “Stick with the Democrats even though they no longer represent working people, because they may represent working people in 2020 if Liz runs?” Then Biden met with Obama, who is said to have OKed his VP’s run to replace him. Yet Obama hasn’t endorsed either Hillary or Biden. There’s some suggestion often repeated on the news that while Clinton has locked up most of the campaign cash, there are still some “Obama Democrats” who never cared for her and would back Biden if he ran. So he’s opening investigative committee or whatever. I think the party just trying to have a back-up in case Hillary, the one dud the party focused all their efforts on, tanks.

So in other words, Biden’s looking for money. We’re fed a story about how he has to check with his family to see if they can hold up to the rigors of another campaign after the death of Joe’s son. Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer at 46, urged his father to run. Look, I don’t want to make light of a tragic death but I have no personal connections to the Biden family. Should a possible leader of the free world be checking with his family to see if they’re ok with his run? Or should Biden run based on his son’s dying wish, however heartfelt? It all sounds very touching, but I’d like for a potential president to come with a bold vision for the entire country–not whether or not he’s resolved his family drama.

And that’s Joe’s problem. He has no vision other than Hillary’s. He’s perceived as an average guy who takes Amtrak to work so he might appeal to workers. That’s why Obama picked him as VP–Joe appeals to working class white males who just couldn’t get behind Obama. Unions have started to endorse Biden’s run, despite the fact that Bernie is their most outspoken champ. And Biden didn’t say much about unions as VP when Obama turned his back on Michigan and Wisconsin when their GOP governors shredded union rights in those states. Remember Obama’s campaign claim that he would put on his comfy shoes and march with unions if they needed help? I guess he couldn’t find those shoes because that’s yet another campaign promise Obama reneged on. Where was Biden, union supporter, during that fiasco? Where was Biden denouncing Obama’s secret trade deal, the TPP, which EVERY union bashed because it will help kill the few remaining manufacturing jobs left in the US? Bernie was slamming the TPP. Hillary called it the “gold standard” of trade deals.

Biden came out in favor of gay marriage before Obama, so there’s that. I think that was a heavily orchestrated way of safely seeing if there was any outrage over the VP’s stance before the president made a move. When there wasn’t much pushback, spineless Obama stepped in and said he too supported gay marriage after polls showed that a majority of Americans supported it. How brave! What leaders! The press releases claimed that Biden went commando with his gay marriage support–the White House, it was claimed, knew nothing about the “ground-breaking” announcement the VP would make. Yeah, right. But if Joe was speaking out of turn, that’s actually one thing he is known for: gaffes. Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. So maybe the party establishment feels they need a loose cannon to grab headlines and compete with Trump’s loud mouth.

Other than gay marriage and gaffes, the primary way in which the VP has been presented in almost seven years is the affectionate way that he greets politicians of both parties at official events. Firm handshakes, witty repartee, complimenting the womenfolk, pinching babies’ cheeks–even of GOP offspring! So if you want a candidate who represents hugs, Biden’s your guy!

Speaking of guys, I suspect Biden’s sex is another of his assets. Many backward people in this country don’t feel that the presidency is a job for a woman, which is sad. But in it’s desperation and disappointment with Hillary who has failed to gin up the base despite her immense campaign coffers, the Democratic party establishment needs to snatch support however they can. So vote for Biden if you want Hillary in male form. Maybe Hillary will pick Biden as her VP. That could halt any progressive policies from being discussed and keep the Democrats in their centrist position which has failed the 99% during Obama’s two terms.

BENGHAZI AND HER EMAIL SCANDALS ARE THE LEAST OF HILLARY’S WORRIES

I love to see people leaping to Hillary’s defense because they think she’s been cleared of any wrongdoing on either her email scandal and Benghazi. These two issues may well be created by her enemies on the right or in the media. Fine! Now start debunking the other many reasons why she’s a crooked, Wall Street-funded hawk who will change nothing for the better.

CROOKED SENATORS REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE IS MAN-MADE

Senators just voted that climate change is not man-made. They must be paid a fortune by big polluters, oil companies and the like. And while the Senate has a GOP majority, Democrats proved their greed over leadership and concern for the environment as well with this vote. How can our lawmakers know less than we do? And fly in the face of scientific research? Both parties suck. Not to mention the absurd Obama having the nerve to visit Alaska for a photo op to speak about climate change–right after approving Shell’s off-shore arctic drilling. Did I mention that Shell has a bad record on safety and should a spill happen, the severe weather conditions would make clean-up impossible? But I guess we can look at the silver lining–our corrupt, greedy lawmakers have at least admitted that climate change exists. They just refuse to name it’s cause so that they can’t propose a solution. Since that solution would cut into the profits of the corporations which bribe them. If you’re concerned about climate change and your representatives in Congress and the White House aren’t, then they don’t actually represent what you want.

US Senate refuses to accept humanity’s role in global climate change, again

GUARDIAN: “It is nearly 27 years now since a Nasa scientist testified before the US Senate that the agency was 99% certain that rising global temperatures were caused by the burning of fossil fuels.
And the Senate still has not got it – based on the results of three symbolic climate change votes on Wednesday night.
The Senate voted virtually unanimously that climate change is occurring and not, as some Republicans have said, a hoax – but it defeated two measures attributing its causes to human activity.”

FOR LABOR DAY, SOBERING STATISTICS ON LABOR FROM BERNIE SANDERS

I knew that unemployment hit blacks harder–51.3% of black high school grads are without work–but white youth with high school diplomas don’t fare much better at 33.8%. Unemployment is still an epidemic. We never recovered from the recession as you often hear from the press and under both Bush and Obama, CEOs are the main ones doing well as well as most wealth flows to the 1%. And Clinton would do little to change this nasty trend. She’d have no desire to–she’s bought by the CEOs who love to see workers doing badly–in this country, where we are demanding higher wages. The CEOs love to see employment improve in countries like Vietnam, where they can buy labor for 75 cents an hour. In honor of Labor Day, here are some sobering statistics on employment from Bernie Sanders and the LA Times.

OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE HYPOCRISY

This petition is very kind to Obama to claim he’s “in denial” over his hypocrisy on climate change, which he had the nerve to spout in Alaska after greenlighting Arctic offshore drilling which has environmentalists hopping mad. Obama isn’t in denial, he’s a highly intelligent man who knows good and well that he’s selling our climate’s health to the highest bidder. What other planet were you going to live on after greed destroys this one? Addressing climate change was one of Obama’s stated top three goals of his second term, and we get talking out of both sides of his mouth? Please sign if you agree.
Sign the petition to President Obama:

“Climate leaders don’t drill the Arctic. Talking about the urgency of climate change while allowing massive fossil fuel extraction isn’t leadership, it’s hypocrisy. Science says we must not burn 80% of known fossil fuel reserves, including all Arctic oil. President Obama, to lead on climate, you must Keep It In The Ground.”

Ya gotta love Mae. Not that pretty, not that thin and her first movie was made when she was 40. Before that, she put on huge Broadway shows including transvestites! I think one such production got her arrested. And my fave Mae tribute–she used to darken the teeth of every woman she shared the stage with–to make her own choppers seem brighter. Demented. (Gotta try it!)

PETITION OF THE DAY

Our tax system is upside down – big corporations pay lower tax rates than local small businesses and the ultra wealthy pay lower tax rates than the rest of us.

But one way that our tax system does help people afford the basics is by giving them tax credits for work (Earned Income Tax Credit) and for child care (Child Tax Credit). But some key provisions within these credits won’t be around forever. We need Congress to do the right thing and make these key provisions permanent so families can continue to make ends meet.

Click here to tell Congress to make these provisions permanent!

When Congress returns from their break this fall, Republicans will be looking at extending huge tax giveaways to big corporations and Wall Street. Instead of more tax breaks for corporations that cut wages and ship our jobs overseas, Congress should be boosting tax credits for hard-working families that help families provide for their children and meet the basics.

Click here to tell Congress to stand up for an America that works for all of us, not just the wealthy!

These pro-work tax credits help millions of hard-working Americans make ends meet, go to work, and provide the basics for their children. Without them, it will be harder to pay for things like childcare and transportation that help keep these families working.

Thank you for all that you do,

AN INTERESTING TAKE ON KIM DAVIS’S RELIGIOUS OBJECTION TO GAY MARRIAGE

This is an interesting meme, not only because my parents are Quaker. But it begs the question: Why aren’t other Christian denominations also pacifists if they worship Jesus, the Prince Of Peace? Maybe because often people can’t even understand their own religions which they claim to worship and give money to. Instead, churches in this country actually offer shooting lessons. 11947664_10153646698809255_6325213450037414338_n
