This Week’s Facebook Memes

Quoted without comment. Opinions, not claims of fact;

From Gloria Steinem:

How about we treat every young man who wants to buy a gun like every woman who wants to get an abortion — mandatory 48-hour waiting period, parental permission, a note from his doctor proving he understands what he’s about to do, a video has to watched about the effects of gun violence… Let’s close down all but one gun shop in every state and make him travel hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun. Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved one who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun.

From UC Berkeley economist Robert Reich:

Wouldn’t it be nice if pro-lifers focused on suicide prevention. Or ending the death penalty? Or fighting poverty? Or curbing hunger? Or stopping gun violence and police killings: Or combating the opioid epidemic? Or ending wars?

You know, things that would actually save lives?

One more, that I’ve seen times in the past months:

How sad it must be — believing that scientists, scholars, historians, economists, and journalists have devoted their entire lives to deceiving you, while a reality TV star with decades of fraud and exhaustively document lying is your only beacon of truth and honesty.

Or the purveyors of YouTube videos. Oops, that was a comment.
