Note for future argumentative self, this article on how the nra rewrote the second amendment.
I gave blood yesterday! I went to the red cross at the local Knights of Columbus, because it's like a 10-15 minute walk.
The little monument to "God's Unborn Children" outside gave me a little pause. (And also how Columbus was kind of a raging asshole whose slavemongering ways were offensive even by the standards of his day) But you know... it was a nice, air conditioned space. Like without compromising my staunch pro-choice views, I think the nation might be better when we can still co-operate on points of agreement and for good causes, even as both sides keep advocating for the issues they find important.
