Once again, at the risk of broaching the taboo topic of US politics, I observe that we are in times more perilous than pre-Orlando. Under the fuerherheitsprrinzip of Senate Majority Leader Paul Ryan, the US Senate is preparing to generate legislation to explicitly violate both the second and fifth amendments of the Constitution. Apparently, they are finally ready to formally take us into that dictatorial state for which they have been so long preparing. We, and the rest of the world, had better get ready.
Correction: A friend has pointed out to me the error in my post — Paul Ryan is not Senate Majority Leader. That position is occupied by
BMitch McConnell. Paul Ryan is rather, the Squeaker of the House.
