    Time for Congress to shed some tears, offer thoughts and prayers and then go about their business without doing anything

    Hey, at least we can put Las Vegas to rest now

    I'm going to pray that an atheist like you doesn't follow in the footsteps of today's atheist mass-murderer or the Las Vegas atheist mass-murderer.

    We need an internationally recognised 'thoughts and prayers' emoji so we don't have to waste all that time typing it out every week...just one click and then we can move on.

    Well....you just had a family member slaughtered

    Nothing we are going to do about it

    But those thoughts and prayers are almost as good
