You must hang around the elite few often to have so much personal information about them. You're probably the ring leader given your homosexual innuendoes. LOLAJW

"Whether you hate Reagan or not, he did try once elected to get the congress on the same page".
Congress worked a lot better back then.
Promises of domestic reform were made by that congress. Repubs keep believing in those promises and then get screwed. This congress has made promises to the ones that voted for them and screw them over while you say giving away the candy store to you is not enough. So in the spirit of peaceful coexistence.. You have to agree. We need a quick financial collapse followed by a couple of nukes will straighten us all out. We are spoiled by voting ourselves gifts that both the domestic middle class taxpayer and the foreign citizen pay for. One taxed to the rafters, the other a casualty from our bullying and wars.

What "clue" would that be? Caving to every demand from Obama and the left?

Speaking of clueless, why did Obama hand the gun control to blithering idiot Joe Biden?

What gun safety class tells you to "just walk out on the balcony, take that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house"?

Why would a responsible Senator vote for a bill passed by the Teabagger House?

If there ARE 28 bills (most likely that's just a talking point) I wouldn't vote on ANY of them. Screw the House.

I read his quotes, it was a whistle or a callbox. And those are good suggestions, though not the ONLY way for a woman to defend herself.

I have no problem with a person using anything to defend themselves. However to try to take away their Constitutional right to arms to defend themselves is criminal. Our "representatives" are declaring war on the citizens.

Trouble is, no one's calling for that to happen. You're imagining it.
