Rich, Yet Woke

In a move I find stunning, Chubb Insurance is eliminating NRA insurance.

People have, in the past, referred to this as “murder insurace”. It’s for people who shoot other people with guns that they bought legally. I understand that if you accidentally shoot someone, that you probably feel bad enough without worrying about going to jail. I also feel strongly that we shouldn’t be doing things in our day-to-day lives where we might accidentally shoot people.

You may wish to defend target practice, or hunting. I’m not even going to argue that. I will argue, though, that no one needs a gun at a barbecue or a football game.

No one needs a gun at a barbecue or a football game.

I am soothed by the idea that it will now be more difficult for rich people to shoot their friends, or strangers, and get away with it. I mean, it won’t be impossible, they’re still rich.

What Big Eyes I Have

Recently, the President tweeted something to the effect of  "If Obama knew that the Russians were interfering in the elections, then why didn't he do anything about it?"

What, you mean like start an investigation, suggest sanctions, and have certain Russian diplomatic personnel ejected from the country? Yeah! Why didn't he do all those things that he did?!

Jesus f#$*ing Christ, already. Just because you say something out loud doesn't make it true, and when those of us who know the truth hear you, we get *really* angry.

If Trump were in the story "The Emperor's New Clothes", we'd get to the part where the kid shouts that he's naked, he'd have the kid silenced, and continue down his parade route telling everyone what high-quality work his tailor does.
