Yep, that's the other thing "A well regulated militia" is the same problem to the NRA as asking a fundamentalist Christian about Dinosaurs.

I'm going to post this, sorry,

Nora Quoirin. It's so horribly, horribly sad. I know that, unfortunately, these types of things happen all the time, which doesn't make this any less tragic of course, but hells bells this has upset me. Maybe because she's around the same age as my daughter who also has learning difficulties so it's rather too easy to associate with it. I don't know. It's just awful.

When a child dies, that is usually the worst thing that can happen. Her parents now have to go through learning the horror of what happened to her in her last hours.

I was distressed enough already, looking at Boris. Not the most important thing, but he has an enormous pimple on his nose.

This week Donald Trump has described himself as the chosen one, the second coming of God (??) and the King of the Jews.

And he threw a hissy fit when nobody would sell him Greenland, then he told Ford how to make cars and asked everybody where The Fed was.

I am noticing a change in response from the Democrats and his opponents, rather than keep commenting that he is unfit to serve they are listing the Republican representatives who are also up for re-election in 2020 and noting how they are enabling him
