      One of the main reason the gun lovers give as to their hunger for guns, is that they need the weapons to defend themselves against a tyrannical government.

      Now that this tyrannical government is taking shape, the question is: Where have all those heroes gone?

      If global gun ownership is concentrated in American hands, American gun ownership is concentrated even more narrowly in the country's gun-owning households. As of 2017, Gallup found that 42 percent of American households reported owning guns. With an estimated 118 million households in the United States, per the U.S. Census, that would mean that the country's 393 million guns are distributed among 50 million households. The implication is that the average gun-owning household owns nearly eight guns.

          [Random Thoughts]

          When is a pet also considered a service dog?

          I recently shared an indoor environ with a lady and her pet dog. Or should I say a "service" dog. Her dog, which reminded me of an everyday pet, didn't seem to serve her in any way. He didn't seemed to be a trained service dog, not at all. He followed her around, and barked, and even shimmied like he was trying to rid it self of fleas, like a common dog. Yet he was allowed to enter a public building as though her owner was somehow disabled. She wasn't blind, because she was using the copy machine to make copies. She wasn't deaf because she shushed the dog when he barked. It got me to wondering; Is it ever appropriate to question a person whom brings with them, into a building where only people or legitimate service animals are allowed, a comfort animal (my other name for a pet dog or cat -- like Dr. Evil's cat in the Austin Power's movies)?

              Of course, I lost him over twenty years ago. But tonight, he told me...that I could forget I ever had a brother...and that I could tell my mother...that she could forget she ever had a son.

              All because neither of us would no longer tolerate him misgendering me...or referring to me as "it."

              All because he called up, as is his wont, to brag about himself again...and mom started telling him about how I had handled myself yesterday at the Convention...and...in true Trump-supporter style...he said..."I do not want to talk about him...I am talking about ME"

              And Mom told him that I was "she/her"...and that I should be referred to as such. Then he switched to referring to me as it.

              And she corrected him again and he hung up. Then he called back and I answered. Mom refused to talk to him. So then he told ME...that I had been his brother since I was born until I CHOSE TO TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HIM.

              And I said to him...oh, hell no, you are not going there!! You stopped being my brother the day you started teaching me how to suck your...well, you get the picture.

              I told him...You were JUST FINE with me being a girl, when you were getting something out of it...and now that you don't you are not okay with it anymore...just like a true Trump supporter it is ALWAYS ABOUT YOU.

              So then he tried to tell me I had forgiven him...for what happened back then, at our father's funeral. I said, oh hell no...I TRIED to forgive you...YOU REFUSED TO ACCEPT IT. You acted like you had done nothing to forgive and refused to hug me back, and treated me as if I had some kind of a disease!!

              And he told me I could forget I ever had a brother, and mom could forget she ever had a son....and he hung up.

              This is the typical Trump supporter. So, today, officially, I have lost a brother. For now he has affirmed what I have known for years...he never wanted me as a sibling to begin with.

                  Fifty years ago, seeing one raven, much less a pair, would have been quite rare. As recently as the 1960s farmers and hunters who considered ravens pests would poison them in large numbers, severely depleting the birds’ population. In certain areas, including on the island of Zealand, where I was hiking, ravens were virtually wiped out. But in the past 50 years, the bird’s population has increased 15-fold.

                      [Misc - Ask Anybody]

                      Californians and South Carolinians, or anybody else who may know for sure. Is it really illegal in your state to leave your car engine running, idling in park, while you are not in it?

                      I ask because I saw another of those police confrontation video where an officer, in California, approached the owner of a car who had left it running while he went into a store and ended up arresting dude. Other have said other states have similar laws, one being South Carolina.

                      This is the first I've heard of these unoccupied idling vehicle laws.

                          In last nights appearance on the BBC's Newsnight Bannon also stated that he thinks Meuller's investigation should continue.

                          And he described Spencer and Dukes as "cranks"

                              The man has a chat with the Beeb.

                              Bishop Curry speaks to the BBC's Religion Editor, Martin Bashir, about his royal wedding sermon.

                              The Most Reverend Curry of the US Episcopal Church quoted Martin Luther King during his 14-minute message and spoke about the power of love.

                                  Time for a laugh! The BBC tweeted Trump pictures of the crowds who attended the wedding between Prince Harry and American born Meghan Markle side by side the one that is showing those who attended the Inauguration of the Trump, with the comment "Just saying." The contrast is quite startling!

                                  BBC Three has had a delightful morning live-tweeting the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But as huge crowds gathered along the route to Windsor Castle to celebrate the royal nupitals, the online channel took a moment to look back across the Atlantic and troll Donald Trump.

                                  “Just saying,” the BBC Three account tweeted, along with side-by-side pictures of the Windsor Castle audience and the famously paltry 2017 inauguration crowd on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
                                  Shoutout to Sean Spicer, who, seventeen months ago, declared Trump’s crowd “the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period.” Nope.
