Rihanna Gets a Gun

Two of them actually. Tattoos. Click here to see them. Wonder what that means?

I hope she’s staying silent just because she refuses to play the game and not because she’s either ashamed or…who knows what’s she’s feeling.

But guns….? I hope it’s a warning to any other man who ever puts his hands on her. But only Rihanna knows for sure. Maybe she meant it for people like me who won’t get out of her business. Regardless, I’m impressed by her silence. I hope I’m right. I hope she’s all right.

BTW, I spoke with some high school girls this weekend and yup, they blame Rihanna. Not for “making” him hit her but for taking him back. If she really has. They also introduced me to this.

 Ah youth. 

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
