    Just this morning I was thinking about the importance of being unspeakably rude to the NRA and the GOP sacks of useless shit that supports it. I think it extremely likely that the poor maligned gawpers would wail and moan at “offensive and inappropriate language,” at which I’d blast ’em with both barrels of some more of the same for being more upset about words floating in the air than dead kids and blood streaming onto the ground. Filthy useless scum!
