• I get a kick out of how the British tabloids do most news stories in 30 words or less of grade-school reading level but when they get a real juicy sex scandal,they switch to long form investigative reporting with plenty o' pics.

    • Another thing that makes 0 sense to me is that I live in Europe where we have open trade between 28 countries, high standard of living and social programs Americans on the left would cream themselves over. Yet you insist trade deals are the road to hell. Conveniently, Putin agrees, at least...

    • I just checked to see if Popular Mechanics was still around and guess what, yes it is, and on the top banner there's this story

      Well-Meaning...

    • Ok but no free guns from this taxpayer, they have to learn to make their own with a laptop and a 3-D printer so that they have learned some Mechanical Arts!

    • Intriguingly takes this whole thing a step further than I have, explains the "throw out these bums, put in some new bums" phenom, such as in mid-terms after a new president's first term:

    • Best way to do it, yes, arm the kids.

      Mechanical Arts could armor the hall walls and doors for shooting practice. The kids could blow off 100 round mags with bump stocks down hallway free fire zones, it could also give the less academic types reason to not drop out.

    • Moved to the right how, where? And haven't you heard of this as normal for the general election? It's about as normal as a plane taxiing on the runway and gunning it for takeoff. Where do you see the populace at large with all those Republicans waiting for a Demicrat to spout even mire leftist...

    • And will it work? how many votes did he cost Hillary?

    • Oh please. Wayne LaPierre has been using the same formula for years. It's the same-old right-wing paranoia; he just swaps out the silhouette on his target. In 2008 he said that Obama had "a deep-rooted hatred of firearm freedoms," then followed up in 2012 to say that he "would come for our guns...

    • Arming the teachers is a waste since there are so few teachers, and so many students. If schools would arm the students that would be effective. One bad guy shooter one thousand good guy students with guns. They could hand out the guns in the morning home room and turn them in during the last...

    • Trump is right. But teachers with Glocks are no match for a teen with an assault weapon and a huge magazine. The teachers wouldn't stand a chance. 

      Hardening must first include placing wireless armed mines in all school hallways, exits and entrances. Once armed, shooters would not be...

    • Both Clinton and Obama lost Congress two years after they were elected and the White House after they left office in part because they moved to the right. Both Clinton and Obama won re-election but there are some pretty serious caveats to those wins. Clinton defeated a weak establishment...

    • If you think politics are about solving serious problems and I'm sure you do, then what other reason is there to engage in political dialogue besides trying to solve those problems If you are confident that your position is correct, then why don't you think it's important to change the minds of...

    • This is a really insightful post. Every sentence is excellent, there's no chaff.

    • I think Wayne has the best polling data and focus groups money can buy. That is one reason why you don't see them respond to a mass killing right away, they are studying up on what they think will work in each case.

      Though he was speaking to CPAC, I think his words weren't targeted to...

    • The First National Bank of Omaha is not renewing its contract as the bank that issues the NRA’s branded credit card. The bank cites customer feedback as the reason.

    • I don't believe most mass shooters are looking for soft targets. Most target the place and people who they feel they have grievances. Some men go to their work place and kill their colleages. Some men feel they have a grievance with their wife or girlfriend. They target her home and family, or...

    • You mean the election and re-elect of two neoliberals Clinton and Obama? McGovern crashed and burned. Which Sanders-like Democratic President are you discussing?
