Scuttlebutt has it that the republicans have introduced a bill to privatize social security. It seems like this would be a golden egg topic handed to democrats on a platinum platter. I sincerely hope that the democrats don't find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory on this one. Do you think they will fight and fight vigorously to keep social security? Here's hoping.

Two Simple Laws Could Solve America's Epidemic of Violence

Two simple changes to U.S. law, both things based in other laws that we already know and like, could solve most of America's gun violence problem:

1. Treat all semi-automatic weapons in a similar way under the same laws as fully-automatic weapons.
2. Regulate gun ownership and usage the same way we regulate car ownership and usage.
