Targets

America is once again under attack from within by those who espouse racial hate against minorities. The killing of 11 people at a Jewish temple in Pittsburg, The killing of two blacks in a store in Kentucky by a white man who was unable to get into a black church. The mailing of pipe bombs to people including former presidents Clinton and Obama by an ardent supporter of Trump and his attitudes about minorities in general. American society has to deal with another mass shooting by an angry white man with easy access to the guns used in the murders. These kinds of shootings continue to the point that one becomes unable to be shocked anymore. When President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 it was the beginning of the times of violence that is so commonplace that I now realize that not much has changed when it comes to stories of gun violence in the United States.

The fact is there are more guns in this country than people, and it appears that we are all potential targets to be wounded and killed whenever someone gets angry for whatever reason and decides to shoot others. The killers are for the most part white men with anger issues against minorities. Jews have been persecuted throughout history in all of the cultures that they found themselves living in. From the Roman empire to the Nazi party they have had to survive constant religious and racial persecution by others. The president is seen as the figurehead for the racist movement now prevalent in our society he is not using his bully pulpit status to unite us he is adding fuel to the fire with his attitude. Our country is like a boat without a rudder. We need a leader who can lead and not incite the citizens of this great country.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
