The organization, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, released a report last year called  "Innocents Lost: A Year of Unintentional Child Gun Deaths”.
That report noted that a third of all American children live in homes with firearms. Of that number, a full 43 per cent of those contain at least one that is unsecured.

Guns and children don't mix. Every week we hear of accidental shootings involving children and yet nobody seems very interested in keeping a record. It's written off as a tragic event that just keeps happening. .

When he claimed the other day that Kennedy would be a Republican Ted Cruz seems to have forgotten something Kennedy said in 1960.. something that NO Republican today would ever say.
I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute... "
And. Kennedy went further:

"|I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accept instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials,"
When Ted Cruz says JFK would be a Republican today, he conveniently ignores the question of faith in politics. In that regard alone, JFK could hardly have been more unlike the Tea Party candidates.

When one party is an extremist, then the labels mean nothing at all. But to say Kennedy would be a Republican today is like making up history. Cruz is delusional and not the kind of man who belongs in politics at any level.

Although the air quality in New Jersey is a serious problem, Governor Christie's sweetheart relationship with the Koch brothers doesn't give him a lot of authority to do much about his state's air pollution problem. Not when so much of the problem blows in from Koch country.
So what's a presidential hopeful to do? Go after the small fish, of course.

Studies show us that where there is income inequality there is a corresponding growth in religiosity. The surprising this it isn't just the hopeless poor turning to their faith for solace. The effect is even stronger among the rich. 

"In economically unequal societies, rich people promulgate religion to keep their own place in the hierarchy, and, rather than fighting for more equality, poor people accept religion as an easy form of solace. "

Religion may be the "opiate of the masses" but there's another side to this story and it's not pretty. If religion is indeed a drug, then who are the drug dealers?

The public must hold high standards when it comes to the kind of government it expects. However, that shouldn't mean being blind when things are done properly. It should not mean refusing to give credit when it is due.

Americans have never expected perfect presidents in the past, at least not until Obama became its elected leader. Historians will no doubt look back and wonder what on earth was the American public thinking.
