Time: 2:01 but the Cats did most of the work.

Enough discussion, enough of people being killed in public or children in schools. For at least this one time, please Congress do something for the public good.

I enjoyed the "Aspiring Americans" commercial. Very surprised to see it! and others too like American Farmer. The Bud draft horse commerical. I was fortunate in seeing them, The Bud Draft Horse Team, one year in a parade following us Harley bikers on a 4th of July. Very well mannered horses.

I don't put much stock in polls anymore. Polls can be manipulated in many number of ways for a desired outcome of results re: immigration.

I can safely say that the g o p pukes should become "extinct" of all the groups of "animals" that are
on the verge of seriously threatened.

Ty, Tom.

Puzzle 4:15 I tink I taw a puddy tat . . . two puddy tats!

MoveOn I don't know how many turned off the TV, but my guess is that there are a lot of Republican/Teabagger TVs wearing a garb of guacamole and nachos! Great ad!

Reuters After reading the article, I continued nosing around Reuters and in their photo journalism section was a picture of a Seattle Police Officer seizing a rocket launcher from a man, an average looking 40 year old man, who had just purchased it. Can someone please tell me why a citizen needs a rocket launcher! Protection from space aliens? This is just the height of stupidity!

Without knowing all the specifics, I like the direction of this legislation. As TC says, "Concurrent with the right to own a gun, there is a responsibility to care for it in a manner that prevents irresponsible use." Amen!

Gallup It is quite clear from this that the Republican/Teabaggers prefer high walls and fences, and are as xenophobic as ever. I suppose one could find a slick purse in this sow's ear building a fence/wall would provide "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs". Maybe that was their plan all along!

Cartoon Amen! Amen!! Amen!!! Amen!!!! AMEN!!!!!

Cartoon -two parties have created disaster. One party would be a horrible step towards a "benign dictatorship". Rather than extinct how about a change of skin, bones and guts.

Rocket Laucher Lynn? Maybe it was a hockey fan...

Thanks all. John, I prefer two or mare parties too. I'd like to see the extinct GOP replaced by a new party to the left of the Democrats.

No wiggle room to the left remaining TC. ;-) I'd much prefer a return to centrism as it is the fringes that have caused all our problems.

No way John. 1960's Republicans were to the left of today's Democrats.
