So Sanders and Scalise walk into a bar (stop me if you’ve heard this one before)

Sanders tries to explain the difference between causality and correlation, while Scalise conflates them.

On TV ... Scalise says it’s wrong to blame Trump’s rhetoric (because he confuses that with blaming Trump for murder.) It’s a wide chasm of a difference Scalise can’t see. Obviously he makes a remark about how he never blamed Sanders when he got shot by the left winger who admired Sanders. Sanders of course makes it clear he’s never espoused the sort of rhetoric Trump has.

With conservatives, it’s as if all rhetoric is the same. Doesn’t matter what’s been said, only who says it. If you’re reading this and feel pangs of agreement, ask yourself why “don’t” words matter.

Scalise, like so many others, argues for Original Sin, a theory as irrefutable (yet unprovable) as it is unfixable. The last part needs to remain in place for conservatives to value their dangerous toys instead of our safety.

Conservatives teach us babies are born bad and must spend their lives being corrected, cured. They remain unsuccessful because the premise is backwards. But it works great as a way of staying in power, when you create the “evil” you supposedly say you want to fix.

That’s why Scalise says background checks “actually won’t” help. You have to go way back in years to delve into their upbringing and pre-fix a problem that’s obviously there (irrefutable, when you know the future!) but because we don’t have a “Minority Report” it’s unfixable.
