So Is It Gun Confiscation For The OD?

   I've simply assumed that there aren't enough extremist Dems in the General Assembly to pass Northam's crackpot gun confiscation scheme--which includes a ban on possession of any firearm with a capacity of more than ten rounds, if you can believe that. But God knows the way things are going on the blue team. I'd also been assiduously averting my mental gaze from the polling numbers. That worked out great.
   Was I stupid for supporting and working for and contributing to the blue team for all those years? Eh, I've got enough to worry about now without worrying about that. It seemed like a good idea at the time. What with the Gingrich revolution, the recount debacle of 2000-1 and the Iraq war, I think it was a solid decision to back the other guys, who have--or had--a pretty good record of keeping the crazy at arm's length. The pendulum has swung the other way, as pendula do. It's the way of things. And, of course, there's Trump. A whole new kind of crazy on the red team. So even when it would be the easiest thing in the world to be the sane party, the Pubs can't manage it. The mind, it reeleth.
   Well, there's always West Virginia...
