I was tired of hearing the raving randian bastards on this list label everybody who disagreed with the slightest scintilla of their pet dogmas as evil vermin who should be exterminated for the greater good, and figured they'd like a gander of getting goosed by the same slimestick themselves to see how the fuck it feels to be slandered by association with extremists. It's simply karmic tit-for- tat; you don't do it to others, it doesn't get done back to you! And it's the people with the guns who are shooting everybody (always has been); they play this little "Shane" home movie in their heads about how they're righteous people pushed too far by bullying cliques, and the next thing you know, fifteen kids are lying dead in school halls, and the gun lobby steps on its dick by claiming that if a guard had a gun he coulda stopped them when one did and couldn't, and Li'l Einstein Danny Quayle kisses Wayne LaPierre's ring by saying he hoped the massacre wasn't used as an excuse to restrict gun sales! FUCK excuses; it's a goddamned REASON! Finally the Senate got a testicle transplant and put some safeguards on the criminal flea market gun shows where two of the guns were bought, and insists on safety locks so's if Junior nurses a carelessly left automatic and plays with the trigger, he won't get a lead lunch! About Damned Time!
