help pass this bill" and mass "Can we have dinner" messages, that man has a problem.
Which means WE have a problem.
Speaking of politicians, I heard part of this yesterday, and it's a fine combination of disgusting and amazing; she really doesn't want to give an actual answer.
Host: So Jan Schakowsky, out of every dollar that I earn, how much do you think I deserve to keep?
Schakowsky: What is really your question here? Do you think you should not contribute to firefighters?
Host: No, no, it’s a very simple question. Out of every dollar I earn, how much do you, Jan Schakowsky, think I deserve to keep?
Schakowsky: No, it’s not a simple question. No, it is not a simple question. I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it.
Schakowsky: It’s not a question of deserving. What government is, is those things we decide to do together.
And so forth. Yeah, it is a simple question, the problem is what your answer would be that you don't have the guts to say out loud. Reminds me of the post on facebook where I repeated that question; the people who did respond would NOT answer it. Lots of "This is moral, this is good, don't you care?" crap, but not one of them would actually give an answer.
After reports that gun walking programs may have existed throughout the country, and possibly in the Tampa area, Rep. Gus Bilirakis (FL-09) began questioning the involvement and intent of this flawed and dangerous program.
Bilirakis, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, has again written a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding answers to pressing questions about the involvement in and knowledge of these programs by the DOJ and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
"It went all the way to the White House".
"...each time we get to a certain level of clearness, somebody gets fired, somebody gets changed..."
The President was asked about this again, and again
He said he did not learn about Fast and Furious until the operation went badly wrong and that White House officials were told only that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was planning an operation aimed at reducing the smuggling of guns to Mexico, where more than 40,000 have died in drug-related violence.
Yeah. Because Newell & Co. just decided one day that this project was a good idea and didn't bother to tell anybody above until... sure, right.
Let's be clear--the only thing 'botched' in 'Project Gunwalker' was the cover-up
To allow the characterization of "Project Gunwalker" as a "botched sting operation" to go unchallenged is to give the perpetrators near (or at?) the very top of the Obama government a free pass on the utter evil of this monstrosity, and allow "gun control" apologists to blame it on desperation stemming from "weak U.S. gun laws," because of the "gun lobby."
It was interesting to note the change in tone as soon as they were told that a CBS correspondent was in the house, though. I may have to try that myself if they ever kick in my door.
Yeah, it's like the dumbasses realized they might have screwed up with someone who could actually give them some bad publicity, or something.
And, in general discussion, a new chapter in the 'What caliber is best?' argument
