At least one American industry still manufactures something here: Faux-fear
It is undoubtedly correct that its faithful is immune to irony. Nevertheless it is still striking that the gun lobby is able, evidently legally, to raffle off a brand new “Tactical CDR-15 Rifle … (valued at $2,500)!” as a GOTV effort to kick out the “gun grabbers” who have been running the country lo these many years. If I were running a gun manufactory I would be pretty comfortable with the folks who permit online giveaways of tactical rifles.
It’s a tempting offer but I think I would insist on the optional foregrip, silencer, and extra 30-round magazines before I sold my vote to these agents of death.
P.S. In today’s Google Doodle, it looks like a coin is being dropped into a ballot box. Is that a sign of fevered imagination or as Disney puts it “a wish that the heart makes”?
