  •  You know, I really find this ironic. (13+ / 0-)

    The argument in question has been shot down any number of times as I see it, but you're missing the actual point: that the argument itself is irrelevant.

    The broader conversation is about gun control and dead children, not crime stats in the OECD, Prozac, the quality of housing, whether or not ketchup is a vegetable or any other distraction. Enough with the damned shiny things already.

    That's what you don't get. Not because you - the impersonal you - are dumb, or evil, or anything like that, but because you refuse to see it.

    I can't help you with that. All I can do is try and keep my utter disgust at what you believe separate from who you are.

    God alone knows that's difficult when you have children on your mind with half their face shot off, and someone chooses that precise moment to babble about statistics.

    And may God have mercy on all of us for failing those kids.

    Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.
