…Everybody else, including the rich people, are willing to pay more [taxes]. They want to pay more.
Andrew’s Note: Hey Nevada, thanks bunches for sending someone this insulated from reality or delusional to represent you in the Senate and make public policy that the rest of us have to live with! How about next time you send us someone who believes in bigfoot, ET visitations, and psychic readings instead…they’d do a lot less damage.
I think a lot of people will look back at this point in American political history and wonder how things got so d*mn screwed up.
What is a democrat? One who believes that the republicans have ruined the country.

Andrew’s Note: Seems to me they’ve joined forces to achieve their common goal.
It’s now Authoritarian vs. Libertarian. Since Democrats vs. Republicans have been obliterated, no real differences between parties.
Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.

Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.

Honor is not the exclusive property of any political party.
President Herbert Hoover
Andrew’s Note: Some days it seems that Honor isn’t even rented by either of our dominant political parties.
President Obama won [re-election in November, 2012] because he promised to steal more things from the people who didn’t vote for him and give what he stole to the people who did vote for him, because that is what an election is, right? An advanced auction on the sale on stolen goods.
Yesterday those of us who value the right to self defense and believe that an armed public is the best defense against future tyranny won a battle but not the war for firearms freedom.
Although the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pulled the gun control bill from consideration he’s indicated that the President intends to go around Congress (again) and take executive action to limit firearms freedoms. It must be a terrible burden to bear when you have to resort to executive decree to force regulations on a populace that’s failed to support your schemes willingly.
If you’re a freedom loving citizen then by all means, celebrate this victory…but remember that you’re celebrating the win of a battle, not of a war. The gun grabbers aren’t giving up, just taking time to reconstitute, resupply, and wait for the next crisis they can exploit.
