I’m meh on Presidential libraries generally, but eh?

Imagine. Imagine the presidential library being virtual and in the cloud. It could possibly bring access to so many resources to so many more people who cannot visit any such physically located presidential libraries. 

Why isn’t the government calling the LAX shooting “terrorism?”

Strong, strong roundup on the aftermath of the LAX shooting. Bringing up valid points, it is indeed true that “Based on available information, Ciancia’s alleged actions amount to a textbook case of “terrorism” according to the US government’s own definitions.” I’m going to reiterate the question again, why isn’t the media or the government calling the shooting “terrorism?” It is an important question that bears answering. 

I have been asking this same question for years. How would public opinion of gun control turn if shootings were called terrorism?

"Sweet little kittens are transformed in a fire. Crawling from the ashes come forth grinning metallic devils with sharp claws and fire blazing in their eyes."
