    Violence in America: Gun Violence

    in Current Events

    While we have clear data on murders from gun violence, no one seems to know how many Americans are shot – and survive – every year. In fact, the government’s own numbers seem to conflict on the matter.


    How can this be? And why has no one tried to resolve the difference?


    Lois Beckett explains that doctors and researchers have been pushing for clear numbers on gun injuries since 1989. “But what’s happened over that time is the politics of gun research, the politics of guns in America, are so divided and so fierce that even the effort to count the number of people injured by guns is incredibly political,” she says.

  • Breaking the Cycle of Racial Violence in America

    in Culture

    Now more than ever, America needs more open and inclusive conversations about the stereotypes on police protection, police brutality, crime, civil liberties, public safety, and social justice in the context of race.


    After many years of dissecting the driving factors on the issue of fragmentation and cohesion in American society, many of the same tragedies of error we've seen for years on race controversies continues to pervades the society. Race discussions, debate on race, or even race analysis are the so called inequality taboo topic of conversation in America. Silence on the issue of race only increases suspicions and erratic responses. 


     We are indeed in a delicate time.


    In any democracy, the government belongs to the people, and the police, which exist within the executive branch – enforcing the law, essentially serve as a buffer of balance between individuals and between people -- maintaining law, order, safety and most importantly peace. If a police error results in a tragedy, the police should be the first to demonstrate contrition, not defense of erratic positions. Otherwise, the society is at risk of an increasing political totalitarianism. It is unimaginable for any cultural group to live inequitably compared to the rest of its pairs in the same country, especially one that promises individualism, equal rights before the law, and the four freedoms. And just as one group should not be a burden to another, so should none be sustained at the expense of the other.

    Does the High Rate of Gun Violence in America Reflect Our Values?

    in Parents

    Today our guest is Attorney Mike McLively from the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. We will discuss the complexity of gun laws in the US.

    The latest manifestation of this "hot" topic is campus life and guns -- "lawmakers in 10 states are busy adapting the issue of campus sexual assault to the campaign to arm college students". (http://nyti.ms/1D2uR1S)

    How do we understand the prevalence of gun violence in America?
    60% of the US homicide occur using a firearm. In other gun permeated countries like Finland it is only 19%. United States has the highest gun ownership in the world. (The Washington Post, 12/14/12)

    Is it totally unrealistic to think we can ever become a land without guns such as Japan? Are they smarter than we are? What's the story?

    Quagmire America Radio: Does Social Media Promote Violence?

    in Politics Conservative

    Please join host Jason Wade Taylor/Randy Hahn LIVE @ 10:00pm EST for three hours of hard hitting Conservative radio. Does Social Media Promote Violence is tonight’s topic, and question.


    I often say that social media is a powerful monster and with power, comes responsibility. If you use it for constructive means, it pays off. If you don’t get it right, you pay for it. Though it’s hard to believe, social media has been directly or indirectly associated with a large number of incidents related to violence, terrorism and uprisings all over the world. 


    If terrorism requires an audience, then the recent mainstream adoption of social media may be giving violent actors a bigger stage than ever before. There are many reasons people lash out at the world, but I don’t think it’s unreasonable to suggest that becoming the center of the attention could be a factor pushing some to commit atrocities. Our retweets could be delivering their messages of fear, and how much of a role has it played in the recent actions in the middle east. 


    Please follow me, Jason Wade Taylor on Twitter and be sure to check out my website Quagmire America.
