Good on the people of Wyoming, Oklahoma, Kansas, Kentucky, Idaho, Mississippi, and Texas for choosing both of your Senators complete with brains and backbone.

Thanks also to the other opposition Senators, and to all of the good folks who fought against this nominee.

As to the "yes" votes, they will be remembered.

Now, if you listen carefully, you may hear a faint sound in the distance.

For those of you who don't recognize it, that's the Muster Drum.

One of the masterminds behind the second Waco cover-up is the new Attorney General.

He commands the FBI and the BATFE, as well as every single Assistant United States Attorney in the country.

He believes that everyday Americans should be prohibited from owning and using firerams of military utility and their accessories.

He and his subordinates will enforce and prosecute whatever anti-freedom measures the new Congress passes and the President signs.

Get ready.

Audentes fortuna juvat.

Fortune favors the bold.

Well, the Democrats won in 2006 and 2008. They have the majority because the PEOPLE voted that way.
I guess your roll of shame should actually be the last eight years of Bush, and the twelve years of Repub control of congress 1994 to 2006.
THEIR fuck up led to this. Which I think you are saying.
I'm just saying, too.

I'm proud of my Senators' votes (both NO). Idaho is largely liberty minded. There are a few Commiefornicators that are trying to drag PRC politics into Idaho, but by and large we will lean right, watch out for our neighbors, and remain "well regulated."
