I’m working to get a #hamradio operator’s license. There are three levels of licensing, each granting legal access to more bandwidth. I’m studying an hour a night learning detailed technical electronics information (e.g. #ohmslaw) in order to pass a 30 question test for which I have to locate a local testing center, drive there and pay a licensing fee. All of this to operate a fucking radio. In the end I’ll invest 20-30 hours of my life to get this license. And if I want to i crease my access to more bandwidth there are 2 more increasingly difficult tests I will have to study, pay for and take.
I also own a #shotgun and #rifle. I bought them separately. Combined time I spent less than an hour obtaining both. Including drive time to the sporting goods store.
There is something wrong with this picture. I support #gunownership but I also support sensible and necessary #guncontrol - why does it feel like that old #simpsons episode where the beatnick parents of #nedflanders say “we’ve tried nothin’ doc, and we’re all out of ideas.’ #overturncitizensunited#fuckthenra#schoolshootings
Is the environment one of your issues?
Then Bob Massie is your guy. He is THE environmental gubernatorial candidate. Not to mention the following litany of progressive issues (see below). But don’t take my word for it! (Sheesh, what do I know??? I’m only a single mom with a ten-year-old who is inheriting a ton of S*** he and millions of others should not have to deal with.)
