Q #151: Why do (most) Republicans love to say, “the Democrats are going to take your guns”?

A few hours after Biden won the election, the kid I babysit sometimes was in my yard playing with the dogs with a friend of his, and somehow just noticed the Biden sticker on the back of my car. He went "eww" and pointed at it, like he was incredulous I voted for him. I … Continue reading Q #151: Why do (most) Republicans love to say, “the Democrats are going to take your guns”?

Blitz Q #148: Where the hell did we go so wrong with basic consideration of others (re: masks) in the U.S.A.?

It's been a doozy of a week, good and not so good stuff. I've been tired as hell and trying to get things put together and educate myself.

Of course, certain old traditional meat-and-potatoes … Continue reading If there’s anything that would make me consider going vegetarian again… it would be the Meat Packing Industry of yesteryear AND today.

This is the most sensible thing I’ve heard about “good guys with guns” yet…

I don't have an account to save YouTube vids I love or appreciate (gmail screws me every time and all the apps kill my computer), but Scottie's Toy Box occasionally snaps up videos by this gentleman. He's named Beau of the Fifth Column, and I gotta say, I'm gonna make a point to look him … Continue reading This is the most sensible thing I’ve heard about “good guys with guns” yet…
