"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Taking the issue Head On


I freely admit to being driven a bit obsessive by this topic, but honestly, who are these people?

The practical consequence of living for nearly two-and-a-half centuries under the almost universally benevolent protection of the Second Amendment is a society in which there are hundreds of millions of guns, in which 47 percent of families and nearly as many Democrats as Republicans own guns, and in which the dissent over the sacrosanctity of gun rights is heard largely because of the overrepresentation in the media of the coastal, urban Left. Those upset with the order of things are welcome to try, and doomed to fail, to repeal the Second Amendment via the constitutional process. But the guns of America aren't going anywhere any time soon, and generic calls to "do something" - even insofar as doing something is desirable - must reckon with this fact.
 No, the guns aren't going anywhere any time soon.

So tax the ammunition.

Tax the ammunition.

Tax the ammunition.

Apply directly to forehead, and then

Tax the ammunition.

You have a right to bear arms under "the almost universally benevolent protection of the Second Amendment," but even the most rabid gun nut has to acknowledge, you don't have a right to shoot them.

Tax the ammunition.

Tax the ammunition.

Tax the ammunition.

And a ban on "assault rifles"?  As soon as you can tell me the functional difference between a semi-autmoatic "assault rifle" and a semi-automatic "deer rifle."  And what does such a ban do to get the guns out of the house of Mama Lanza, so young son Adam can't use her "assault rifle" to kill kindergartners?

Tax the ammunition.

Tax the ammunition.

Tax the ammunition.

If you want to earn more when you become a therapist or
holistic practitioner, then it would make sense to have an open
mind and move away from the mindset of treating your private practice as
though it is a hobby, right. Remember that you are usually limited to a number of sessions so you
might want to consider paying out of your own pocket.
Depending on your lifestyle, now you also have the option
to opt for online schools.
