"Gravitas" - a word I really want to use more often, but feel embarrassed about it to the pt of mispronouncing it most of the time.
@DoctahDean and the "people are stupid" thing is also why Jefferson worked so hard to make the system as it is.
@DoctahDean which is why nothing about people ever surprises me.
@DoctahDean but it's still beside my point: Has Congress ever acted against such polling levels before?
@DoctahDean then what about the 86% from the Post/ABC poll earlier this week? Still a shocking number.
@DoctahDean It wouldn't shock me at all that 70-90% of the US doesn't see background checks as impeding on commerce.
@DoctahDean ...happened before when the population is polling this strongly in favor of something.
@DoctahDean This system of gov't was set up so populism wouldn't run wild. In a way, that clearly worked here. I'm just curious if it's...
@DoctahDean Wouldn't surprise me. Nearly 100% don't seem to give a crap what the NSA is doing out in Utah with all of their personal data.
@DoctahDean I'm really just curious how often US Congress has acted against polling like that.
@oaknd1 yeah, there's a lot of those where you have to time/sacrifice the water to get the gnomes. Makes it so much more awesome.
@oaknd1 embrace momentum, and remember as the water falls, you can still make new tunnels.
@DoctahDean how is that obvious? If you live in my hood, that # is low.
@fighting4jesus it wasn't polling at a negative like that. It was about 60-55/40-45. But goes to show, a margin of 10 is considered "wild."
@fighting4jesus and mind you, I'm not particularly sure _how_ congress should act on the matter. Just curious about history.
@fighting4jesus not _gun control_ so much as just the expansion of background checks.
