Bipartisan Senate group proposes ‘no fly, no buy’ gun measure
What happened to the rant? I guess that was easy.
That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

Americans used to hate criminals and the homeless, but now every American is a criminal and soon every American will be homeless.

It is fine to hate criminals. The homeless? They have done far less to merit hatred. Typically they have been unable to do bad things to people of the sort that make others homeless.

If you want to know what it was like to have things designed so that everyone could be treated as a criminal, then contemplate Article 58 of the old Soviet Criminal Code.

Leveling tends to be down, then up, and we're still in the downward phase.  It takes a while for the gravity of anyh situation to dawn on enough people for it to trigger real change.  We're still accumulating converts.
