I read your note today with keen interest. I see both the artist and the scientist on display.
You turn the key and open the door to a room in which only logic may follow you.
A room, in which to discuss a political issue, a subject area that is as far removed from logic as a subject can get.
Engage as you will in political discussions but remember that politics, always, is an exercise in raw emotion.
Logic has, and can have, no role to play in politics.
Don’t fall into the “let’s have a national conversation about guns” trap.
That’s Democrat talk.
Democrats always want to have little campfire girl chitter-chats about everything on the news.
There is no need of a national powwow about guns.
There is simply nothing to discuss save that the government fails to follow its own laws.
I must say that I am taken by a particular comment you make that is truly the, gravamen, of the case respecting guns, as the law boys call it:
Everybody wants to divine a way to do something about evil pre-facto. But man is limited in his means. Man can only react to evil post-facto.
Again, engage as you will in political discussions but remember that politics is an exercise in raw emotion.
Logic has, and can have, and indeed, ought not to have, any role to play in politics.
- At Washington, capital city of the terminally self-absorbed, mortal man holds to fleeting, feeble and fallible opinion, God immutable fact.

Tweets: @jtdbegg“Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he’s the only one who’s sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~
