  •  And let's be frank about what air travel is. (4+ / 0-)

    It's a luxury.  It's not a particularly luxurious luxury, but you could get from point A to point B several different ways.  Being able to do so by sailing through the air a short time (relative to the amount of time it takes to drive from D.C. to your Congressional district, or bus from your first home to your vacation home on the coast) is in fact a luxury.

    Eating is not a luxury.

    So- to recap.  In the month of April, our Congress (and yeah- Congress.  Not Republicans.  Both sides have members implicated in these debacles, and it's putrid to think otherwise) has chosen the NRA over children and the vast majority of Americans supporting background checks, and have now voted to spare luxury consumers at the expense of the food insecure elderly.

    I don't know what has to be done to change the system in Washington, but it has been clear for almost ten years that elections aren't doing it.

    I'm living in an age that calls darkness light.
