Thoughts on America: Gun violence and gun control in America

I have some “Final Thoughts” on the matter

I’m just going to be blunt with this because frankly, I’m over all of this. I’ve tried many times not to cover things like this because I like this to be something more uplifting, funny, and something that isn’t so serious. But it’s time for another “Pop Project gets serious.” That’s what I like to call these things because I’m going to get serious because it’s getting bad. So let’s talk about guns. Oh, there’s not going to be a gif for this because it doesn’t deserve one. I also cannot promise there won’t be some sort of jokes in here because I don’t want this to get too serious. Note: I’m not even going to give the idea of teachers having guns the time of day. That idea was created by an idiot that is avoiding having to do actual work besides golf.

I’m not going to state numbers at you because they are literally everywhere these days. Instead, I’m just going to break it down for you. As much as people don’t want to say that this is a gun issue, IT IS. The fact that people are more worried about keeping their guns than the people dying is scary. No one is saying let’s take all the guns in the country and burn them. One, that would be super dangerous because some idiots would leave the bullets in and that would end even worse. Two, the only people who are looking to get rid of EVERY GUN are the extremist. But seriously though, no one really needs a gun.

I really don’t think common Joe really needs to own an assault rifle or anything like that. No one has a need to have a gun in their home unless they live somdwhere they have to worry about getting invaded. Spoiler: that doesn’t happen here in America. You don’t have to worry about a zombie rampage either.

It’s extremely too easy to get a gun. You can walk into Walmart and buy a gun. Not an assault rifle but just a gun like to hunt deer with. Doesn’t that sound a little too easy for buying a gun? Sure, you still go through the background check but there’s something a little strange about getting a gun in the same place you can get condoms and groceries. Here’s a piece from Fox News on background checks. While I dislike them, this was rather informational (first and last time I will say that.) The fact that they really don’t need to enter their social security number is something that needs to be address, as well as the fact that it’s easy process. While I’ve never tried to get a gun, here’s a list of things that may take longer than buying a gun:

Things that may take longer than buying a gun:

  • getting your driver’s permit
  • getting your driver’s license
  • waiting in the DMV
  • getting to your destination in a large city
  • buying or leasing a car
  • doing your taxes
  • taking a shower
  • planting a garden
  • working out
  • renting a car
  • getting a hotel/motel room
  • watch a movie

Look, all that I’m saying that it shouldn’t be this easy to get a gun. You shouldn’t be able to get something like that anywhere. You shouldn’t be able to get assault rifles. I can understand other guns for recreational purposes but why should a background check take a single phone call? Why should you be able to get something that could end a human life in a split second so easily? There needs to be something done to not allow it to be easy. A phone call shouldn’t be a background check. They should have to wait for a full actual background check because it doesn’t sound like one is being done. A couple of questions and a phone call doesn’t sound like the right judgement to decided whether someone should get a gun.

To those that don’t care because it’s their right to bear arms under the second amendment, this paragraph is for you: You are a heartless. There are people dying and you are more concerned about whether you can go by the gun you want. Have you no shame? The need of innocence lives being taken because people decided to shoot people trumps your need to have a “cool” gun that you have to load less often than a more sensible gun, which there really isn’t one.

To those that keep saying that it’s a mental health issue, just stop. If it is a mental health issue, then the person that is selling them the gun has the right to deny them if they feel they are being sketchy. So why didn’t they deny them? It could be that they are more concerned about the money and are just hoping for the best. You can see where hope has gotten us at this point.

Either way, something needs to be done and a bunch of high schoolers are making a difference and making you look like a bunch of assholes. They are taking the initiative to stop anymore mass shootings from happening. They are more mature than the person who is playing dress up as the President. You can sit there and blame everything else you want like video games, society, the media, but it all falls back to one thing: shooters are getting their guns legally. That is a GUN CONTROL ISSUE. These high schoolers get it, why doesn’t the adult that are sitting there trashing them get it? Because they are getting money if they keep gun policy the same from the National Rifle Association. Yeah, I went there.

Also, can we also stop saying “no one blames the gun” logic because frankly, it’s stupid. Yes, it’s all on the user of the gun but if they removed the gun from the user, then you wouldn’t have a mass shooting. Again, no one really needs an assault rifle. Hell, no one really needs a gun unless they are military or police. Instead of selling and making guns for mass consumption, let’s use that money to get more police officers so people don’t feel the need to have a gun on them for their own safety.

So let’s stop having mass shootings, which seems like we have one every other day, and actually do something about it. Let’s learn from these students and take their lead. We need to be the change in the world. We, as a country, are stupid if we let another mass shooting occur. Which we probably will because the “mature” adults running the country are trying to over compensate their small dicks with their firearms. I would like to dream of a day where parents don’t have to worry about their 15 year old getting shot up at school. A day where I don’t have to worry about getting shot up because I said the wrong thing to the wrong person. A day where I don’t have to hear about another mass shooting in America.

Why Oprah Winfrey should run for President?

Lock the door. Lower the blinds.

If you have lived under rock for the past couple of days, everyone has talked about Oprah Winfrey and her running for president. Besides that I covered that last year, It’s been getting people talking about whether she should run for president. Let’s have a moment for the fact that I broke the first before all the news outlets. Anderson Cooper, eat your hear out.

For those that aren’t sure what the fuck they are in for, a kiki is a party for calming all your nerves. We’re spilling tea, and dishing just deserts when they deserve. So let’s talk about how people don’t think Oprah Winfrey should run for President. All of this is coming from people who voted for Donald J. Trump. I’ll let that sink.

After her amazing speech at the 2018 Golden Globes, she had people moved by it. It was just an extremely good speech. Because how elegantly she spoke, people want her to run for president. There was a whole Twitter conversations about it and pretty much the internet agreed that she should run in 2020. But then there was the other side of it. The side that said Oprah shouldn’t run and that she wasn’t qualified because she was a celebrity.

To the people who said that Oprah isn’t qualified, I say this: Donald Trump is our President and you cannot tell me he was actually qualified. Donald Trump and Oprah are both celebrities so your argument is invalid. If the Donald Trump getting elected into office taught us anything is that no one really cares if you are qualified. They just care about them and if you can get them what they want. Like stop caring about the environment because who the fuck need that when you are paying in taxes. You cannot afford to enjoy the environment since your broke.

Everyone knew that Trump getting elected would start a trend of celebrities getting interested in running. It’s actually their right to run for office, just like it’s your right to do the same. I know I just shocked you with that bit of knowledge there. I say if they want to run for President, let them! They honestly can’t be as bad. Besides, we still have to vote for them. We have the last say on who will represent the parties and who is going to run it.

You at least owe her a chance to run. You could like her position on things. Personally, I would prefer my President to have a political experience. I wouldn’t go get a major surgery from someone who said they could do. I watch a lot of “Grey’s Anatomy” but I’m not going around opening up chest and repairing organs. Why would you want the same for the person running the country? But if we aren’t going to go with experience but rather who we think will do a good job and who will match up with your beliefs. Doesn’t this sound like why you voted for Trump?

If Oprah is running against Trump, don’t vote for her if you don’t like her. Just like most of America didn’t vote for Trump. Just don’t say she’s not qualified because she’s a celebrity. She’s more qualified than Trump. ANYONE is more qualified than him.

This kiki was…..

Pop Project Investigates: Covfefe

covfefe-sm

Here we go again. sigh.

Welcome to the first edition of “Pop Project Investigates.” It where I put on my investigative journalist hat in order to properly figure out what’s going on. Let’s talk about convfefe.

For those of you who don’t know, this is a tweet that Donald Trump sent out and then later delete:

IMG_0358

Many suspects that Trump just misspelled “coverage” due to his small hands but I believe that it’s actually a secret message that you need to decode. While Trump is known for his subtweeting, this isn’t one of his normal “This is fake news. I won the election. I’m awesome and you not” tweets. Don’t let him fool you because this is some secret hidden message.  Sure, it makes so much more sense to believe that “coverage” but that’s letting Trump win. I spent hours upon hours looking at the sentence structure and have come up with two theories on it.

Theory 1

Donald Trump used covfefe as a positive message to his supports. This one is probably less likely but it’s a theory because Trump hates using punctuation besides periods, which is very ironic. But let’s not get into this. Here’s how I think it should look like with punctuation:

Despite the constant negative press, covfefe!

Covfefe in use as something like “struggle on” or “power through.” It just to uplifted and tell everyone that it’s okay and everything is running smooth. I expect Donald Trump to continue on with the select messages with their true meanings leaking very soon because everything in the White House leaks lately. Secrets, the pipes, you name it and it has leaked there. Probably even the shower.

Theory 2

I’m pretty sure that the covfefe tweet was actually a text message to the Putin but Trump hit the wrong app on his phone. According to the Associated Press, Trump told world leaders to contact him on his personal number because that sounds like he’s not covering anything up. So Putin has his personal number and Trump was letting him know that everything was going to plan. Also, the tweet has no structure which fit well with the overall lack of structure in text messages in today’s society.

Covfefe is a term that is used to confirm that the plan is in place and it’s ready for the next phase. I believe that Covfefe is rather the plan name. It stands for

Confuse

Overturn

Victory

Falsify

Execute

Foreign

Exterminate

Covfefe is the overall plot to make sure Trump won the election. If you follow the outline of the plan’s name, we are currently on Falsify. We only have three phases left. Who knows what we will have in store in the other phases.

Covfefe isn’t something to be cherished but rather something to be worried about. Sure, we all hope it was a stupid mistake but what if that’s Trump wants you to believe that in order to hide the true nature of covfefe. Also, you know it’s a bad sign when your device doesn’t try to fix covfefe.
