As many of us known, there’s been a White House Petitions effort to strike back at Bloomberg and his fellow Anti-Second Amendment Bigots and Victim Disarmers by going after the original “politically-incorrect gun ban,” pushing for the repeal of the 1934 National Firearms Act. The petition’s at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/repeal-nfa, and time runs out in four days, so let’s run up the numbers and make as loud of a statement as we can.
Current score: 152,724 signatures – 153% of goal
Today’s Birthdays: Astronomer Galileo Galilei, 1564; engineer Cyrus McCormick, 1809; activist Susan B. Anthony, 1820; astronaut Roger Chaffee, 1935
Holidays Around the World: Philadelphia has ENIAC Day and Florida celebrates Susan B. Anthony Day. It’s also National Flag of Canada for our neighbors in the frozen north. Overseas it’s Statehood Day in Serbia, Liberation Day in Afghanistan and Total Defence Day in Singapore.

The Watercooler has a job to do and maybe a job for YOU! It’s nothing really complicated, just about 400-600 words on whatever’s caught your attention that day; doesn’t have to be anything big, just maybe summarize and link a few things that grabbed your eye and add a dash of your own commentary. We’re pretty open about letting individual contributors develop their own individual styles; no AP or SPJ Style Manual horse-puckey here, just write whatever you have inside you bursting to get out that day.
Please direct inquiries into the Comment Thread.
