2nd amendment. That's all they care about. The rest do not matter. As long as they can shoot somebody. The conservative movement is as fucked up as they come.

Bloomberg 'Terror Gap' Argument Shot Down By Pro-Gun GOP Senators:
"New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's appeal to what he called 'common sense' at a congressional hearing Wednesday morning failed to sway two Republican senators who said that giving the government the ability to block the purchase of guns by suspected terrorists would undermine the Second Amendment's right to bear arms.

'Shouldn't FBI agents have the authority to block sales of guns and explosives to those on the terror watchlists -- and deemed too dangerous to fly? I actually believe that they should,' Bloomberg told senators. Federal law currently only allows the government to block guns sales for a very limited number of reasons, and being on that list is not one of them. (For more background, see Tuesday's article on the subject.)"


Daily Kos: Slouching toward neofeudalism:
"The financial crisis that grips our nation's states and cities has a malicious source, and Governor Tim Pawlenty recently named that source: public school teachers.

'It used to be that public employees were underpaid and over-benefited. Now they are over-benefited and overpaid compared to their private-sector counterparts.'

The school teacher, the policeman, the firefighter - these are now the faces of what is wrong with America today. It doesn't matter that studies by the Bureau of Labor Statistics say otherwise, America can no longer afford their overpaid, middle-class salaries.

At least that is what the right-wing media is telling us."

Hopeful, but the FCC head is a dick.

Nice one, Harry.

Harry Reid: GOP 'Making Love To Wall Street':
"'The Republicans are having difficulty determining how they're going to continue making love to Wall Street,' Reid, the Senate majority leader, said in a press briefing."

I'd like to go to Mars, now, please.
