Really huge, and totally advanced

Advanced Nation
President Obama regarding the latest U.S. mass shooting:
“The United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense gun safety laws. . . .”
QT Abridged Too Far Dictionary of the English Language:
advanced adj. 1.far along in development or progress. 2. as an advanced nation. 3. which is what we like to call the United States. 4. despite  the violence. 5. and the full-time workers on food stamps. 6. and the failing schools. 7. and the limited health care. 8. and the collapsing infrastructure. 9. but we’re really rich. 10. so we  get away with it. 11. which seems to make us the Donald Trump of nations. 12. which is a chilling thought for the day.

Legislating bad

Meth Lab
News Headline: “Meth lab discovered inside U.S. government building.”
It wasn’t the U.S. Capitol.
But it would have been an explanation.

QT 2016 vote count countdown update

Art of Puppetry
News Headline: “Koch brothers summon Bush, Cruz, Walker, Rubio to SoCal confab”

This just in. . . .

Mob and Rob
News Headline:
“Ohio cops hunt 70 juveniles in late-night ‘mob and rob’ of Circle K store.”

Ted Cruz
News Headline: “Ted Cruz outlines energy bill with fewer restrictions on fracking.”
News Headline: “Fracking industry billionaires give record $15 million to Ted Cruz’s
super PAC.”
For those not familiar with the technology of fracking:
It is achieved by the high-pressure injection of  money into politicians, causing fractures in integrity that allow the extraction of delays in safety regulation.
Don’t you love science?

Thoughtfully taking our minds off
the mass shootings. . . .

Barack Obama
News Headline: “Obama pushing for ‘largest gun grab in American history’: NRA.”
But it will probably have to wait until his invasion of Texas is complete.

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

Neil deGrasse Tyson
B.R., a New York City reader, writes:
“I was watching a ’60 Minutes’ segment about Neil deGrasse Tyson. Did I hear this astrophysicist misuse the word ‘phenomenon,’ of all words, as a plural?”
You are referring to this statement:
“In astrophysics, we care about how matter, motion and energy manifest in objects and phenomenon in the universe. . . .”
This is available on video.
So there is scientific evidence here.
