It opens a huge can of maggots !!

All I can say to those who support this BS and unrestricted gun access with NO background checks - you get what you asked for !! Welcome to Tombstone !! eek

It also demonstrates a difference between the POTUS and the GOTP... with respect to Congressional vote on Syria and Background checks...both issues had about 80% support... 79% wanted the POTUS to go to Congress and about 80% want Background checks. BO says OK I'll do as you ask, . . . the GOTP says F you, we'll do tha F what we want !!! mad

Well, that is not the reason for the law and I'm sure it will not be upheld in this case. And the shooter knows it

They are the party of No now because they aren't in the White House. Back during Reagon and the Bushes, they were for most of what the president wanted. Itwas the Demos who sad "No"

Now it's the opposite.

Politics as usual.

Like "NO" to trading Cocaine for Missles?

"No" to invading Granada? & Panama?

"No" to supplying Saran & Mustard Gas to Housain?

"No" to starting 2 Wars on manufactured evidence?

"No" to No-Bid-Contracts to Enrich Your Friends?

...
and for trying to bring America up to the standards
of just about every other "!st World Nation" by
bringing people "AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE" you're
calling for "Impeachment"? LOL W/E crazy

Not nearly "usual" -- Reagan, the Bushes and Clinton enjoyed a loyal opposition willing to work with them on many issues to actually get things accomplished. In fact, pretty much every President until Obama had an opposition party willing to compromise on at least some things and interested in actually making the government work. The Gingrich revolution marked the beginning of the mainstream right's slow descent into a political and ideological zealotry that really doesn't have an analogue on the left until you get to the looney fringes. The political nihilism of congressmen on the right who are anti-government and more than happy to have everything collapse is pretty much unprecedented ...

So, yeah, not really politics "as usual" unless we consider the current state of the Right as the new normal (shudder!) ...

Funny, the chicks seem to eat it up ;-)

But yeah, I'm not terribly impressed with humanity in general. Go figure.
