    like they might have been taken off an NRA website... Wonder how much the NRA has had a role in formulizing these myths...

    •  Predictions are, by definition, fictions. (0+ / 0-)

      They thrive on preconceived notions, hopes and fears.
      The 2008 Obama campaign actually stole much of their thunder with the "hope" message, as did the "man from hope" before. It makes sense when you're having to talk about the future.  Because nobody knows.
      But, optimistic predictions are more risky, the consequences of failure are more negative.  Pessimistic predictions are more secure. Conservatives always spout negatives. Then, if the negative doesn't happen, it's a relief.
