Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.

zOMG! Snow!

I might be dead right now, in fact! Or at least cold enough that you could probably pry my gun from my hand and be justified in thinking you had the timing right.

Weather permitting, we'll actually be on the air. Fingers crossed! In Congress, the House will be taking up a DoD appropriations bill with a full-year CR attached to it. We'll see if they plow enough roads to get people there to vote on it. In the Senate, it's a cloture vote on the nomination of Caitlin Joan Halligan to the DC Circuit. That's a big time nomination, so you can expect the resistance to be stiff. Because Kenyan Socialism. And if the plowing is bad, well, who knows who'll get in to vote and who won't?

Speaking of Kenyan Socialism, the Dow broke all records yesterday, which is why, as Republicans say, America is a hellhole.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    and then there is theQ Poll for CT:

    By margins of 2-1 or more, Connecticut voters support most gun-control measures, with support for universal background checks at 93 - 6 percent, including 89 - 9 percent among voters in households where there are guns, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

    Voters support stricter statewide gun-control laws 66 - 30 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Support for specific measures includes:

    68 - 28 percent back an expansion of the statewide ban on the sale of assault weapons. Gun owners are opposed 49 - 44 percent;
    68 - 28 percent back a ban on the sale of ammunition magazines with more than 10 rounds. Gun owners are divided 49 - 48 percent;
    72 - 27 percent back registration of all handguns, with annual renewal. Gun owners are divided with 48 percent in favor and 50 percent opposed;
    63 - 31 percent, including 50 - 46 percent among gun owners, favor limiting handgun purchases to one per month;
    85 - 14 percent, including 71 - 28 percent among gun owners, back a permit requirement to purchase and carry all guns;
    86 - 11 percent, including 85 - 12 percent among gun owners, favor a gun offender registry for those convicted of gun crimes;
    76 - 19 percent, including 65 - 32 percent among gun owners, back stricter gun storage requirements;
    50 - 43 percent back mandatory liability insurance for gun owners, who oppose this measure 71 - 26 percent.

    "In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, there is overwhelming support among Connecticut voters for strengthening the state's gun laws. It is remarkable how bipartisan the support is for some of the most talked-about gun-control measures. Universal background checks tops the list with 93 percent support, higher than we've ever seen for any issue in 20 years of Connecticut surveys," said Douglas Schwartz, PhD, director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

      I suspect Connecticut will eventually break for more stringent, given the proximity to 12/14 and the general direction of gun law in that state.  With a few exceptions--NH, and VT, I expect we'll see a solid Northeast bloc that more or less orbits the SAFE restrictions.  I would hope that Colt would consider relocating.  When a community has all but blackballed your membership in it, better to go where you're more appreciated.  Against, Vermont and New Hampshire are some ideal locations, I'd prefer that to a red state.

      •  of course if it's national (0+ / 0-)

        (just a thought experiment, not a prediction), there's nowhere to go. some folks ask why national and not state by state? well...

        what i am more confident about, as we talkabout the other day, is the other provisions not including AWB.

        and just as an fyi, here are two more polls. well, one because Qpoll national should be out tomorrowe (that's the second).

        This one is fascinating though from YouGov/HuffPost:

    •  So far, so good. (0+ / 0-)

      It's definitely coming down here, and it's a legit snow storm now. Friends to the south and west say they've got 18 inches on the ground, with snowfall expected to continue for another 10 hours or so. We've got just a few inches now, though.
