Today, the Arizona Legislature passed a law that only persons with an IQ of over 100 could own a gun. They then immediately asked the Governor to veto the legislation when they determined that all but two of the legislators would have been required to turn in their weapons.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it.
