I wish this clown would shut up instead of trying to get 3D printing regulated just so that he can be famous.

Agreed. 3D printing is a lousy way to make a gun. This guy is doing this to get attention.

(Google result for "gun dealers": "About 44,300,000 results.")

That would be a fun exercise. I think that capitalism is like Windows 3.1, a cooperative multitasking system. It works, as long as all applications play nice all the time and are neither nefariously nor inadvertently cheating.
John Adams was getting at this:

Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

That is, to pluck some numbers at random, we really ought to have an 80/20 rule: 80% of our code gets things done; 20% handles exceptions, which should mostly be inadvertent. Which is why the Constitution takes >380k. If you're honest, you can be simple. If you're a river of lies, you need density to ward off the honest.
Overall, I blame Progress.

I'm waiting for you to resolve the contradiction between the impossibility of change within the system and the need to change the system.
How is it that we're clamoring for something different, then crushing every attempt to vote in anyone different? Walker (so far) hasn't sold out. I favor increasing the number of non-sellouts in DC until a tipping point is reached. Not saying it's going to be easy. However, saying it's "impossible" seems tantamount to BEING a sellout, for all practical purposes. Discuss.

I have no love for Healthcare.gov, but honestly just about every site is sending out notices that people may want to change passwords. Heck, Yahoo *made* me change my password.

Like everyone else they don't know if anything was taken. And frankly, Heatbleed is probably the least of the security issues Healthcare.gov has... I'd be way more worried about backbend systems, and then it doesn't matter what your password is.

Here's Frank-Lin's list of products. It's alcohol, deionized water, and flavoring. That's what Frank-Lin does. These are just the brands Frank-Lin owns. They also do contract bottling for another 2,000 products. "With an annual production capability of 15 million cases and on-premise tank storage capacity in excess of 1,500,000 gallons, Frank-Lin has the facilities and expertise to efficiently handle any project".

Frank-Lin is noted for having one of the most flexible automated packaging lines in the world. They can switch from one bottle/ingredients combo to another without stopping the production line. Every product can have a unique bottle. They're next door to the bottle factory. This is what the booze industry is really like, minus the advertising hype.
