    The only entitlement that needs reforming is the inbred belief of the 0.1% that they are entitled to 99.9% of the wealth and 100% of the power.

      But the perversity of the situation is that showing collective frustration and compassion over gun violence is now a political act, because there is a party that wants to view it as a kind of metaphysical fact about which nothing can be done, a given that we must submit to. So, today, when we have sadness toward it or try to preserve our dignity in the face of it--everything Obama did tonight--it's political through and through. And that's nothing to be ashamed of, even if it's degrading that we have to be political about the most trivial and obvious of things (but how different is this from any of the other political fights we're in now?).

      •  Good points. Depressing, but I can't disagree. nt (0+ / 0-)
