It’s amazing how a simple thing like laryngitis can reveal so much. I’ve painfully realized just how much I talk to my dog. And myself. Ow.



Review of Yesterday’s Regrettable Mistakes

1) The Senate rejected a bill popular among 90% of Americans that would’ve strengthened background checks on gun purchases.

2) Several news outlets incorrectly announced that a dark skinned man was identified as a suspect in the Boston bombings.

3) Meteorology’s classification as a science was called into question yet again in Colorado.

The difference is that meteorologists are tasked with the difficult job of predicting the future. The Congress and the news media are supposed to work with facts that exist in the present. Let’s do better today. Go team!



Legislator Threatened With Gun Violence If She Doesn’t Stop Trying To End Gun Violence

Because he disagrees with gun control legislation, this man threatened Colorado state Rep. Rhonda Fields and her daughter by writing, amongst other things, that he hoped “somebody Giffords both of [their] asses with a gun.”

Clearly a very clever man, he used Rep. Gabby Giffords’ name as a verb that apparently means “to indiscriminately shoot men, women, and children in the head, with intent to cause maximum carnage.” He also wanted to make it clear that he didn’t just want them shot, but shot “with a gun.”

This story is even more horrible than it initially appears to be. Back in 2005, Rep. Fields’ son and one of his friends were shot at a July 4 party. Three people, including her son’s friend, were killed in this incident. But her son survived. He survived, only to be shot and killed, himself, along with his fiancĂ©e, before he could testify in court against the gunman that killed his friend.

Threatening Rep. Fields with gun violence was not only extremely cruel in light of her family’s tragic past–it was also a painfully stupid way to argue against gun regulation. People like this only serve to make people that want more gun control want even more gun control. This man is not mentally ill, he just thought it was okay to threaten someone with a gun to get his way.

I don’t understand why the President had to fire a gun to discuss guns, but lawmakers don’t even need vaginas to take away women’s rights.
