America Changes On A Monday Morning

It’s a full slate of news on this Monday morning in America.

First, the longest serving representative in the history of the United States Congress has died. West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd passed away at the age of 92. It’s not my style to speak ill of the recently deceased, so I’ll just say that his history is well-known though downplayed by the Democrat Party. He went from being a grand wizard in the KKK to being the grand wizard of pork-barrel spending. Alas, his time is over and West Virginia will now have some sort of representation.

Meanwhile, good news and bad news in the Supreme Court as it strikes down a Chicago gun ban and affirms gun-rights to the states. That’s the good news. The bad news, it was 5-4 in the usual breakdown. We were one vote away from seeing the Second Amendment castrated. That should scare the hell out of you.
