In The News, with your host... um, just uh, actually just read the stories.

nukanuka What are circles?Registered User regular
Things are happening!
Sometimes they are awful, sometimes they are rad as heck, sometimes they're boring and sometimes you wonder why the hell this is even news in the first place.

Things like, "Yay! NZ legalized same sex marriage!"
http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/8560494/MP-confident-marriage-equality-bill-will-pass
"Boo hiss! Senate fails to pass Background Checks bill"
http://www.rollcall.com/news/senate_torpedoes_background_check_deal-224103-1.html

So what stories are you guys following?
Also please refrain from posting about Boston, we already have a thread for that.
Oh and I don't know if this thread is kosher, I just felt it was needed.

    If you mean the Boston thread, discussing other things in the news right now is being strongly discouraged

    On a different note, fuck congress for shooting down the gun control bill. Polls were putting 87% of the country at wanting that thing, what were they thinking?

    man, I largely oppose stringent gun control but don't really understand the objection to background checks

    even on a strictly constitutionalist basis the 2nd Amendment doesn't say anything about infringing on the sale or purchase of arms

    Installing that radio mod that puts in like 200 more oldies in the playlist was probably the best thing I ever did with that game.

    I saw so many videos of them lobbying, shaking hands and seeing them hand photos of their fallen loved ones to congress men and women. Did you see the reaction from that guy from West Virginia (I think he's from WV) all he could do was tell them he is a parent and a grandparent.

    This is just, it's disgusting.

    Between the CISPA passing the house and the failed gun legislation, not much good news out of the US Congress today.
    Some days I will compulsively read all kinds of news sites looking for interesting stories and whatnot but today I was just like, man, all this is just depressing.

    Probably pretty easily, if they aren't convinced that guns are the problem here

    The documentary Bowling for Columbine made me hate the NRA more that I thought possible. Its their policy to hold press conferences in the location of mass shootings as soon as half a year after the event. Who the hell sees a bunch of kids get killed on the news and thinks "what a perfect place to tell the world that guns are the best thing ever"

    There's always people crying out about DERE TAKIN UR GUNS! when something bad happens. They bank on them, as well as the attention.

    the NRA is pretty awful but Bowling For Columbine is largely lies and misinformation

    I've been thinking of a story. I have a setting, and characters and maybe even a bit of a plot.

    Man fuck the haters. I'm doing it anyways. I'll use the internet. She went through hell and so will I. I don't even know if I'll even finish the story let alone publish it but I'm not going to let those guys that brought her down bring me down too.
