    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.

    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.

    I have been told that I need to go see the movie Lincoln. Not much has changed since then.

    I’ve replied many times and I’ve yet to get an answer from you that doesn’t involve changing the subject. Still waiting for a reply on that non-existent data base you “quoted” the other day.

    “The Supreme Court stepped in, and “shoe-horned” “corporations are people” into the equation!”


    Yup. This is why we have super pacs, fake grass roots organizations (freedom works), and no way of identifying the corporations who pump money into these political races since the cons filibustered any legislation that would do so.

    If It’s what I’m thinking of there was no statement of a database existing. It was of a database being constructed and I left a question mark at the end as to what the database would be used for. If I’m in error, please tell me let me know and I’ll try to find it again. If I quoted a data base, believe me, it exists.

    This should have been separate for a long time. Big money, about 1,000 individuals in particular have bought our government.
    They have already sold out to Satan. Big Business has.
