Democrats love their straw man originalist thought when it comes to the Second Amendment ("The Second Amendment refers to muskets and flintlocks") but their application of it is limited only there.
Somehow a slight edit of Sweeny Todd seems appropriate:
There's a hole in the worldOr "...the Democrat Party" but that has too many syllables.
Like a great black pit
And the vermin of the world
And its morals aren't worth
What a pig could spit
And it goes by the name of CONGRESS.
Failed comedian Al Franken seems to be particularly hostile to Gorsuch. Franken was never funny; he started with SNL as the initial cast began drifting away, and he was in fact a harbinger of things to come. An SNL ep today is a solid two hours of Al Franken. It sure was nice of George Soros to buy that senate seat for him; at least now we don't have Al Franken on TV failing at being entertaining. Though I'm not sure him being a Senator is an improvement.

So, the big Corroding Empire brouhaha is getting interesting. Because it appears that Corroding Empire has not been removed from the Amazon catalog via their normal process, but because someone with access to the system--an Amazon employee--unilaterally decided to remove the book and pull other shenanigans.
Now, here's the thing: it's just possible that this person, doing such things in excess of his authority, has opened Amazon up to a lawsuit. Most companies, rather than get sued, will simply fire the person who misbehaved. We'll have to see what happens here, but I hope the SJW in question is really happy with himself, bceause it's possible this nonsense will cost him his job.
UPDATE: Finally got to speak to a supervisor. She's not only escalated the matter to legal, but has assured me that the book will be unblocked, stay unblocked, and that the matter will be fully investigated. It's not just the three blocks, the culprit(s) also put the book on the Excluded list for Amazon Associates, which prevents others from being paid when someone buys the book.See, if you have an "Amazon" link on your web site, and I go to Amazon using that link and buy something, you get a couple shekels from Amazon. It's not a lot of money, but the more people do that, the bigger your check is. And this unnamed "activist" put Corroding Empire on a list which excludes it from that activity.
If this supervisor is on the level, it means heap bad juju for the "activist". Or it ought to, in any case.

1970s fashions for men, and that last one made me think, "Queer Avengers, Unite!" The dude in the white pants is using a lady's scarf for a belt, for crying out loud.

I was impressed by this:
That's a G-scale model railroad--one built outside, in someone's back yard--with an actual operating rotary snowplow. Granted it's a bit unrealistic--the rotor spins fast enough that the snow is ejected at about Mach 9--but it's still really cool.
