I liked this one, (mis)attribued to Gloria Steinem:

I want any young men who buy a gun to be treated like young women who seek an abortion. Think about it: a mandatory 48-hours waiting period, written permission from a parent or a judge, a note from a doctor proving that he understands what he is about to do, time spent watching a video on individual and mass murders, traveling hundreds of miles at his own expense to the nearest gun shop, and walking through protestors holding photos of loved ones killed by guns, protestor who call him a murderer.

After all, it makes more sense to do this for young men seeking guns than for young women seeking an abortion. No young woman needing reproductive freedom has ever murdered a roomful of strangers.

That’s one thing about troubled times - the rants certainly improve.

Are these really troubled times? I mean, are things worse than they used to be? The rich getting richer is an old story, an old game. Somehow or other these rich players make it possible for a sizable number of us plebes to get a piece of their pie, enough at least to pay rent and buy groceries. That lessens the troubles of these troubled times. All the shit we've been through, the Civil War, WW 1 & 2, the Holocaust, the great depression, and yet today any one of us can stop into a convenience store and buy us some Ben and Jerry's.
