This is as satisfying as talking to my reps.

Pretty much says all you need to know about how effective thoughts and prayers are.

any cheat code, somebody ?

Nowhere near as fun as “Call Of Duty” and yet just as many people die.

Ok, that’s pretty good.

I would add two other buttons: one for voting for candidates that support gun control and limits to corporate involvement in politics, and another for ranting about stuff in internet sites. The first one may eventually work one day.

Something something hacked something, something election something something. Resistance something something. Social media something something, gamification something. Rotate your phone.

Don’t forget butter emails.

The sad thing is that this has been around for a while.

Great, now look at this asshole.

This is trenchant and amusing but in the end, isn’t saying “we can never do anything about the GOP” just as bad as saying “we can never do anything about mass shootings”?

As they keep pointing out on that Pod Save America podcast I sometimes listen to, people would vote for gun control if Democrats would actually run on it. The evidence for that (aside from all the surveys) is the fact that every elected Democrat has already won an election against an opponent who said they wanted to take your guns away. So run on a promise to take people’s guns away already.

One slight alteration that would have made it better- when clicking on “ban assault weapon sales” it should say “ok, done!” and everything continues as before.
