Definitions Of Common Words Used Incorrectly To Thwart Our Democracy:
Woke: Aware of and actively attentive to important societal facts and issues, especially issues of racial and social justice.
Socialist Programs: Examples are Medicare, Social Security, Our Military, Police Departments, agricultural subsidies, Public Education, Public Infrastructure (bridges and roads) and other government infrastructure programs to name a few. These are benefits that are part of our democracy and we all benefit from them in one way or another.
Facism: a political movement that embraces far-right nationalism and the forceful suppression of any opposition, all overseen by an authoritarian government.
Communism: A political and economic ideology that positions itself in opposition to liberal democracy and capitalism, advocating instead for a classless system in which the means of production are owned communally and private property is nonexistent or severely curtailed.
Letter of the Week
When Russia attacked and killed Ukrainians we acted by sending weapons and supplies. When Hamas attacked and killed Israelis we acted by sending weapons and supplies. When our own domestic terrorist or criminally insane kill Americans we act by sending thoughts and prayers. Why are we unable to act as forcefully at home as we do abroad?
We know we have a gun violence problem. This year, as of October 29, the U.S. has endured 565 mass shooting in only 298 days, almost 2 every day, and more than 35,000 Americans were killed by gun violence resulting in 118 gun deaths daily. More than one half of these deaths were suicides. Firearms are the leading cause of death in children, the majority of which occur in their homes. We know what reduces gun violence. It is not rocket science. We must have strong gun safety measures. The majority of Americans support gun safety laws. Your right to a gun does not trump my right to life. If your lawmaker votes for guns over life, VOTE THEM OUT.
We also need to address our inadequate mental health care. Poor mental health leads to an increase in violence, homelessness, substance abuse, inappropriate incarceration and suicide. We need more awareness, resources and facilities devoted to improving our mental health.
