    Politics: The gentle art of obtaining campaign contributions from the rich, and votes from the poor, by promising to protect each from the other. — Oscar Ameringer (1870-1943)

    The politicians, in the case of background checks, did not execute the will of their constituents in any district in this country. They lied about “second amendment” violations that were not part of the bill, confiscations that were not part of the bill, and registrations that were not part of the bill. It’s disgusting.

    During the 70’s, I lived in Italy. My neighbours’ take on the Nixon admin scandal was, “Why are you folks upset? Of course they’re corrupt! They’re politicians!”

    They didn’t miss it. They just thought we’d be smart enough to keep it from happening.

    I haven’t even heard that one paraphrased. It’s pretty good!

    Please, read the bill. It can be found in the Federal Registry, S.649.

    I too, had never heard/read the quote. It sums things up perfectly.

    I see Con’s heads exploding all the time from reality messing up their finely created mythology. Facts are foreign to most Cons.

    Soros can’t compete against just the Koch brothers. And he is busy in Europe not here.

    @Ionizer

    If you read it why not quote from it to let us know the offending parts so that we may see and comment?

    @ypoons7666

    You people are hilarious and very human. Just as foolish. Best not to believe your own propaganda. The same goes for everyone else. Name calling and ad hoc intelligence testing are fails all around. Facts alone should rule. But we are emotional creatures so it is very near impossible to be objective. Only subjective. So let us go with facts not innuendo shall we? Can we?
    -
    Just give some of the offending quotes from S649. Otherwise you are making specious allegations. Go on I dare any of you to quote from it so we can have an actual dialog.

    Odd you should bring that dare that up. I’ve quoted from that bill a number of times in the past few days with opinion attached and gotten next to no replies.

    Sorry, but Congress is facing the other way. And lower.
