16 presidents were not in the military at the time a war started.
5 of those 16 were born before a war.
One (1)- did not go to his war?
(1)- faked bone spurs deferment during the time of a war!
United States military.

Six of those 29 served in the Navy, and five even had ships named after them.
And still,
thousands of my military brothers and sisters
voted to him and are planning doing so again!
What’s up with that?

Here are the top politicians getting cash from the NRA and standing in the way of gun law reforms


There’s so much money in violence.

There’s so much money in violence.

A couple of years ago I wrote a quick piece on the top Republicans receiving the most career NRA and gun lobby money. That list showed you how over their careers people like Sen. John McCain—who has since shuffled off this mortal coil and Reps. like Barbara Comstock—who lost her reelection bid in 2016 under a blue wave of change—pulled in hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars from the gun lobby. Some of the Republicans on the list have moved into private life to make some more money, with hopes they can reemerge down the road hiding dried blood stains and the faded smell of corruption, like Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan. And while hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars seem tame over a career, keep in mind that these are the numbers not hidden deep inside of PACs that are untraceable. The price of sitting on one’s hands while children are murdered and families destroyed continues to be relatively cheap. And while some of these names no longer count as elected officials, MarketWatch points out that 98% of gun groups and the NRA’s targeted candidate money continues to go to Republicans.

So here is a top 20 list of congressional representatives taking the most money in recent years from the gun lobby, according to OpenSecrets.Org. These are numbers from the 2017-2018 election cycle and while some of these folks are no longer in office (in italics), the damage they’ve done in the name of blood money endures. …
