Trigger Response

Yes, I know the idea of children shooting and killing themselves is nauseating but, guess what? It happens quite often. In fact, in April of 2016 four toddlers gained access to guns and shot themselves dead. So don't attack the messenger. Better to save the children, and save the rest of us from adults who act like children.


What I fear most about this attack in Virginia is that Congress will rush to set new limits on assault weapons.

Thank you! I'll be here all week! Don't forget to tip your waitress.


Kennedy was assassinated. Reagan was shot. They tried to shoot Bill Clinton and Ford, twice. Presidents are now protected by bullet-proof shields wherever they go.

The Second Amendment was designed to get slave states to sign the Constitution. Now it affects how we're governed. It's long past time to admit that its goal is antiquated and must be changed to reflect a much different world.


Congressman's Steve Scalise's injuries are, from all reports, very serious. I don't like guns and I don't want anyone getting shot but any person who legislates for easier access to guns in order to score political points DESERVES to taste the bitter fruits of his labors.

Enjoy lying in the bed you made for yourself, Congressman.


Suddenly t-Rump thinks that Trumpcare is "mean, mean, mean", that he wants something more generous.

Don't believe it for a second. This is a ruse as the Republicans in the Senate are dead set on voting for a huge tax cut for the rich. Continue to hammer your Senator: 202-224-3121


Sessions says he was never (as in NEVER) briefed on Russian election interference.

Well, sure. The first rule of Russian Vote-Supression Club is you don't talk about Russian Vote-Supression Club.


His Mangoness put Mitch McConnell's wife on the cabinet, made Newt Gingrich's wife an ambassador to the Vatican, and now he's giving John McCain's wife an ambassadorship.

I wonder how long before Mike Pence's dog gets a cabinet position.


A woman went snorkeling in the Bahamas and had her arm bitten off by shark. She subsequently says the incident "is going to change people’s lives because you can’t hear this story and not see God in it.”

Okay, Xtians, you heard her. Go "change your lives" in the Bahamas. Extra points from Jesus if the shark gets your head.
