An often used argument against any gun control proposal is that it won’t stop ALL criminals from securing or using firearms, and therefore it is not something worth doing. However, if the test for any law is whether it TOTALLY solves the problem being addressed, then no action would be ever taken addressing so many of society’s important issues. For example, why require the use of seat belts if wearing a seat belt does not ALWAYS save a life in an accident? Why prohibit people from carrying guns onto planes if it doesn’t eliminate ALL risk of hijacking? Why prohibit providing assistance to terrorists if it doesn’t stop ALL terrorist acts?

Someone I know shared this on Facebook. This is THE MOST RIDICULOUS ARGUMENT. God isn’t “allowed” in schools? Excuse me? Are we talking about the same omniscient being that can do and go wherever the fuck it wants? I think what they meant is that public prayer and other religious acts of worship aren’t allowed in schools- and for damn good reason. Also, isn’t it pretty damn blasphemous to pretend to speak for God like this shirt is doing?

Obama meets Mexico’s New President, Enrique Pena Nieto.
So Mexico’s new president is a PILF.
If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door.

“After Harvey Milk became one of the first out gay people elected in 1977, he put up a sign in his store window that just said, “Thank You.” Thirty-five years later, an out lesbian named Tammy Baldwin would be elected to the US Senate. Remembering Harvey Milk, killed on this day in 1978.”

If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal”, then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.

Tonight’s biggest winner (aside from Obama): Nate Silver, master election prognosticator at the Times’ Five Thirty Eight blog.
If Obama’s lead in Florida holds, Silver’s predictions will have proven correct for all 50 states — a perfect record.
In fact, we could save a lot of money four years from now by not holding an actual election, and just having Silver run his numbers and tell us the winner instead. They guy’s always right, so what’s the point of people actually voting if all it does is bear out his projections?
