    This country has really become a fucking sewer.

    I don't know why I even bother with politics anymore.

    If this couldn't move people to action then what the fuck will?

      Rep Elizabeth Esty (CT-04) made a very cogent argument last week, when she appeared on Rachel Maddow.

      She articulated very clearly why the massacre at Newtown has changed our national conversation on gun safety. And Rachel Maddow set up the argument with a historical review of gun reform legislation starting when JFK was a senator.  Even after he was shot it took another 2 high profile assassinations and 5 years before gun reforms were passed.

      h/t petersolson, see this absolutely amazing segment from Rachel Maddow.

      If you haven't seen it, please check it out. It will give you perspective.

      There is no turning back.
