In less profound stuff: I forgot the name of "Harbor Freight" the other day and asked The Boy, "So what's the name of that place that sells cheap, crappy tools?" His response was immediate. He added, "That's branding for you. Cheap crappy tools = Harbor Freight."

So however frustrating the Democratic party's inaction is, the current electoral process works to make this inaction likely. This, in turn, makes it hard to believe engaging harder with the current process can change anything. The party needs to offer change in how it responds.

In a way, this is the argument against all this "bipartisan" crap.

If it鈥檚 perceived that Republicans might help, then even voters who are supportive of gun control but otherwise right-leaning will vote as normal.

Weird thing about the comments here is how many people seized upon the restriction of pseudoephedrine.
Replying to @DrLovlie
We need to limit the amount of ammunition people can buy, like we do pseudoephedrine.

I agree. I would add that where I live in MA, we have an assault weapon and high capacity magazine ban, red flag laws, background checks, and entire areas where discharging a gun is a crime. We have the 2nd lowest gun death rate (after Hawaii) in the country. Gun access matters.

Basically, for it to work, the "good guy with a gun" had better be a well-trained sniper with a good scope and a clear sightline, and, oh yeah, somebody on the ground who can keep all the potential victims out of the way.

Made it through my first week of work. I'm going to want to get better at getting enough sleep. Fell asleep around 7 pm for a couple of hours tonight and am about to rehydrate and go back to sleep.

Seems as good a time as any to remind people that loggers, roofers, construction workers, sanitation workers, truckers, miners, agricultural workers, etc. all have statistically more dangerous jobs than cops鈥攁nd if they refuse to do those jobs they get fired, not more money.
