I’ve been thinking about this precise thing for the last few days. Good to know smarter people than I am are as well.


NRA In Financial Jeopardy, May Soon Be ‘Unable To Exist’

Remember when gun sales were riding high because the secret Muslim/Antichrist was going to take away the NRA’s idols? This is truly some funny, delicious schadenfreude.


Trump administration says it isn’t responsible for reuniting deported parents and children

To be fair: when my dog shits on the carpet I might be mad but I’m not delusional enough to expect the dog to clean it up. But my dog doesn’t lead the nation either.


The ‘feel-good’ horror of late-stage capitalism

Wounded Warriors gives me this feeling. On the one hand I am deeply grateful that there is an organization picking up the slack for veterans but, on second thought: why is this organization necessary? Why can’t our government take care of men and women it sent into the fray?
