● The fight to get gun legislation passed will be fierce. NRA board member and musician Ted Nugent says that gun owners will be the next Rosa Parks. Seriously.
● What the heck is all this talk about a trillion dollar coin to solve to debt limit crisis about?
● Anti-gay preacher tapped to do benediction at President Obama’s second inauguration has been removed from the program.
