This is disgusting. Not that Marco Rubio finally got put in the hot seat, but that it took a nation of adults watching children slaughter each other—in classrooms, for twenty years—before they then … sat around Tweeting while they let the children also ask the question, “Why is this happening?” to an elected official.

It’s fucking dystopic that paid, professional reporters would propagate a system that allows these shills and empty shirts sitting in Congress and the White House avoid tough questions regarding the influence of lobbyists and the responsibilities of a democratic government.

I get a lot of people telling me I bitch too much about capitalism, but find any reason in the world why so-called responsible adults will let children shoot each other in the back walking out of class that isn’t tied to who gets paid at the end of the day. The ruling class will not care about school shootings unless one happens at some private prep academy where a kid with an inherited future in the C-suite of a Forutne 500 company dies.

This fucking country.
