If he is suffering from a malady that makes him incompetent to serve in
such a position, he should step down. He wouldn't be allowed to pilot an
airplane, a position in which he could only kill or maim 150 people, nor
would he be allowed to operate heavy construction equipment that could kill
a few dozens at a time or commercial truck driver where he may only kill a
few people. But be a legislator and make decisions affecting the lives of
330 million people? Sure! No problem!
There is never a situation where having more rounds is a disadvantage
That's nothing, going to jail for defending your family against armed
home-invasion robbers, now that's nuts:

It happened here, too. The great masses of perfectly good food (which
are tossed into dumpsters nationwide on a daily basis) are banned from
harvest by the homeless, who "might get food poisoning from it." Of
course, if they don't get it, they'll die, but that's not the fault of
the Department of Health, so they claim.
And our gov't pays farmers to produce less (and to destroy perfectly
good grains) so the prices stabilize. Screw the starving.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent,
but the one most responsive to change.

I'm curious what you think should be done. Suppose there's enough grain
flooding the markets that prices are low and nobody will make money. Do we:
1) let the farmers all lose money, forcing the marginal ones out of business
2) have the government pay the farmers to destroy grain and not plant so
3) have the government pay the farmers market rate for the grain, thus
triggering sanctions from other countries because we're subsidizing our
If we pick option 3, then we also need to decide what to do with it. Do
we give it away to poor people (depressing grain prices further and
pissing off the remaining farmers)? Do we give it away to other countries?
It's not a simple issue.
PS. Apparently you can now get corn-based cat litter and diapers. Freaky.
There, I've been really lucky. My little girl is the most problem free
cat I've ever had. She eats kibble, drinks water and that's it. I've
tried several canned and packaged varieties of moist cat food and
she's just not interested.
As far as the litter goes, not once in five years I've had her has she
not used the litter box. I'm not even remotely interested in taking a
chance with some other brand, even if it is biodegradable.
I was probably 6-7 years old when my Dad told me that one.
It was about the same time he pointed out a round barn as we were
driving and told me a guy had killed himself in that barn.
Seems the guy ran himself to death looking for a corner where he could
take a pee.
