"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The fake grass roots and astroturf bought and paid for screachers from crossroads and gang have been replaced by real voters. Kelly Ayotte is going DOWN. Jeff Flake is going DOWN, Bebish -DOWN, Portman- DOWN. 90% > nra. When their membership roles become as toxic as KKK's roles justice will be served.

At Haymarket Square in Chicago, a rally was being held because of a strike at the McCormick Harvester plant and, just two days after the enormous May Day turnout. http://bit.ly/15f0tDT
Here is a link to last night's "Big Picture." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFAJlFOimfw&feature=share&list=UUY8x1K2FMBw-jm-WCPbcHEg. It is a great show and worth watching in its entirety. Thom's rant about how big our government should be, which begins at about 50:50 minutes, is spot on EXCELLENT! Thom speaks my mind.
"Since 2007, Wall Street has evicted four million families — approximately ten million people — from their homes. Millions more are ensnared in ongoing foreclosures. Over the last year, I’ve listened to the stories of hundreds of these families, and the most common experience I’ve heard is the feeling of insecurity and psychological terror.
Colorado has embraced good government syndrome – they want everybody to vote. Both state houses just passed a major election law, which includes same-day registration, mail-in ballots for every voter, and a statewide voter database to prevent fraud. Already, Colorado is one of two states that uses a universal vote-by-mail system, and voter turnout in that state typically exceeds the national average by more than five percentage points.
Happy Birthday Pete
In apparently an accidental moment of self-reflection, Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's sociopath-in-chief, said on Dec 21, 2012:
"And here's another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people."
Gee Wayne... ya think???
Oh wait, no one did confiscate my vote or try to. My bad.
Voting is the right analogy to explain the need to register guns. Both are rights established in our constitution and, both are qualified (well-regulated militia/white, propertied men). And, although voting was built into the main body of the constitution, and gun ownership relegated to a mere "bill of rights" afterthought, they are more alike than the more widespread defense offered via the "driver's license" or "car registration" analogies.
Listening to Gun Nuts you might think everything they demand under the Second is a scared right. Yet the members of those original constitutional militias were a public record and during muster, a representative of the government knew what weapon you had... one prescribed by Congress.
So when did all these paranoid demands begin?
