the larger point being that the emphasis seems to be on the terminology (can we stop saying "mass shooting" when only 8 were shot?) rather than the epidemic of shootings itself.

Maybe some historical context will help you.

When the Titanic sank, having all of the deck chairs in nice orderly rows helped everyone remaining on board as it dipped below the surface feel as though everything was going to be alright.

Why should we spend emotional energy focusing on the negative? Instead, channel your concern into a positive retail experience at your nearest gun shop.

I understand terminology is irrelevant. Accurate terminology leads to accurate assessments and then, perhaps, to effective policy.

What matters is here is something more important, emotional impact.

lemme try for what I promise is the last time cuz ... rabbit holes and such ... 8 folks were shot last night and the only expression of concern over thar was should we REALLY call it a "mass" shooting, cuz that upsets folks when you talk that way.

You are free to keep missing the point though. I understand when a squirrel sees sumpin' that looks like a nut, he's gotta go for it!

Guns don't kill people, it's the bleeding that kills people.

Maybe if everyone carried more bandages and tourniquets arounds with them this great nation on the decline would be safer. And let's start sopping things up by going after the bleeding hearts, they are the ones making a mess of everything.

I know, right?

And I'm just pointing out that the seriousness of one's virtue on the matter is undermined when he doesn't even bother to learn anything about the subject -- in the specific or the general sense. It makes us rabbits wonder if that virtue is real or just being signaled.

“All I can tell you is from the president’s point of view, he did nothing wrong in his mind,” Graham said.

I think that is all I need to know. A sociopath should not be held accountable for anything because....well....from their point of view they did nothing wrong. Leave it to Graham to put this in a reasonable framework that I can understand.

Can we all just move on now to the important trumpublican stuff like cutting SS payments and kicking trump voters off the public teat? Damn socialist leaches, make them work for it like the rest of us do.

I'd like to take a whack at deconstructing Lindsay's latest bit of performance art ...

The American people don't particularly care if Trump did anything wrong in his mind. One assumes there exists nothing but wrongness up there. It's the wrong he's done in the external world that is of concern. At least to those who haven't drowned all of their moral compunctions in the river of cult.

I thought for a while it was a trumpublican cult of convenience, but their persistence in treating him like a vengeful god is starting to make me wonder if they know the difference any more.

In the end if he is the vengeful god of tax cuts then really why should I care?

Blackburn said. “How patriotic is it to badmouth and ridicule our great nation in front of Russia, America’s greatest enemy?”

I was getting ready to applaud Marsha but then realized she wasn't talking about tiny sucking up to Putin, she was lying about Vindman.

In what is so far the least self aware tweet of the day, tiny repeated the smear.

The principled conservative trumpublican party, "You're either with us or we will lie and smear you! trump 2020!"
