What Happens In Vegas Can't Stay In Vegas

The massacre in Las Vegas was horrific,
heart-wrenching and senseless.
But it wasn't surprising in a country that
answers bloodshed with "thoughts and prayers."

The dire scene in Puerto Rico is tragic,
frightening and maddening.
And made worse by a callous response,
and by the greed of vulture capitalists
who have crippled the island's economy.

And in DC, the GOP plans an assault
against our budget and working families
to give massive tax breaks to the 1%.
Infuriating, unnecessary, potentially devastating
and not shocking if you follow GOP politics.

When a crisis hits, we can mourn.
But as a crisis is made worse
by ignorance and inaction,
we have to organize.

If what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,
then we're doomed to repeat our history.

So let's all work to make sure that
what happened in Vegas can't stay in Vegas,
and not forget victims there,
the 3.4 million Americans of Puerto Rico
and everyone who'd lose out under a GOP agenda.

And let's get together with good friends
over good politics and good drinks
at your local progressive social club.
