How to send Putin a message.

Adolescents well into their early 20s still are developing their abilities to use judgment and impulse control.

If you want help grasping that fact, think of the difference between an incoming college freshman and the same young person as a college senior. The difference in emotional maturity is often dramatic.

Gov. Greg Abbott and the National Rifle Association’s refusal to acknowledge the role that maturity plays in the epidemic of gun violence, by refusing to raise the legal age for the purchasing of assault weapons to 21, is unforgivable. Shame on them and on voters who are fooled into thinking this is a “gun rights” issue.

3 parties better than 2

The two-party system is failing us, and we deserve much better.

Instead of working together for the good of the country, Republicans and Democrats spend time and money to retain control and power. Rather than passing beneficial bills, time is spent tearing at each other.

It is time to look at a meaningful centrist third party, one that would appeal to disillusioned independents, Republicans and Democrats. Such a party could force politicians into coalitions that would work toward solving and passing important legislation.
