    My own thoughts | 10/08/2017 | Doughtyone for Free Republic
    While working on another study this afternoon, I stumbled across some figures that might be enlightening to others.  It was surprising to me. You see, I'm a member of a very special group.  Born white, male, and over 65 years of age, I'm guilty of white Privilege, (according to some people). Yes, I am hanging my head in shame, moving it from side to side.  ( /s )  How did I ever sink to this level?  Clearly there is a problem.  (Or is there?)  Can I ever atone for this?  Can you? Our white youth are considered to have an...

    "Christ himself asks us to welcome our migrant and refugee brothers and sisters with open arms", Pope Francis took the occasion of the general audience in St. Peter's Square, to launch Caritas Internationalis’ campaign "Share the Journey” in support of families forced to migrate - because, Francis said, "the journey is shared by those who come to our land, and we, who are called to reach their hearts to understand them, understand their culture and language. The Pope recalled once again the opportunity of a new migration law "more pertinent to the current context".       "I am pleased to welcome the representatives...

    A federal agent who had been scrutinized for his handling of rare evidence and his behavior at the counterculture Burning Man festival is no longer an employee of the Bureau of Land Management, authorities said Friday. Daniel Love, who played a command role in federal agents' 2014 standoff with Nevada rancher and states' rights figure Cliven Bundy, no longer works for the agency. .... Love still worked for the agency on Aug. 24, when a federal investigative report was released saying he handed out valuable stones known as moqui marbles to colleagues and a contractor "like candy,".

  • Suicide and Guns: Maryland Study Debunks Itself

    As shown in the image above, many countries with extreme gun control have higher suicide rates than the United States. When criminologists showed that murder rates either dropped or remained the same when guns were more easily accessed, proponents of a disarmed society turned to suicide.Their studies about suicides “caused” by firearms ownership, tend to be junk science. Consider a recent “study” published only with the American Public Health Association. It was done about suicides in Maryland. Maryland is densely populated and has extremely strict gun control.  Only 3.5% of the suicides were in rural areas. The numbers are...

    A Wisconsin state lawmaker has proposed a bill that would let people ban themselves from owning handguns as a suicide prevention measure. The proposal, filed as LRB-3529 by Democrat Rep. Melissa Sargent, would allow people who may be at risk of suicide to ban themselves from being able to buy handguns in Wisconsin. Individuals who choose to take part in the Firearm Self-Exclusion Program would have the choice of excluding themselves from handgun purchases for one, five or 20 years, with the first year being irrevocable. “Nearly half of the suicides that occur in Wisconsin annually involve firearms,” Sargent said...

    Arguably, the only thing better than Maxine Waters’ skewering of White House weasel and Treasury Department Secretary Steve Mnuchin was the song it inspired—a gospel spin on Waters’ infamous remarks, performed by Broadway actor Mykal Kilgore that immediately went viral. It turns out that New York City’s first lady, Chirlane McCray, is also a fan of the song and its message. This past Sunday, which was World Suicide Prevention Day, McCray used the concept of “reclaiming my time” to urge viewers to take better care of their mental health. (TWEET-AT-LINK) In the public service announcement, McCray appeared opposite Kilgore, who’s...

    A dairy farmer, Jean-Pierre Le Guelvout, once kept 66 cows at a thriving estate in southern Brittany. But falling milk prices, accumulating debts, depression and worries about his heath in middle age became too much to bear. Just 46, Mr. Le Guelvout shot himself in the heart in a grove behind his house one cold December day last year. “It was a place that he loved, near the fields that he loved,” explained his sister Marie, who said she was “very close” to him but did not see his suicide coming. The death of Ms. Le Guelvout’s brother was part...
