    The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.

      a real slimy weasel, look at his mendacity on NDAA. He creeps me out just watching him. All of blue weasel dogs could use a primary. Thing is the D party machine with the money and power isn't about to support any pol who looks to rock their boat.

      How can we get better Dems. if our entrenched  party 'leadership' refuses to support any contender that does not toe the established line and go along with their ridiculous kabuki. What good are majority's when the Dems in the senate or the house always find a way to pull rules or compromise out of their anti-democratic butts.

      The established senate order and the tweaked procedural rules are nothing but a smoke screen that enables them to continue with their by-partisan mendacity. 9% approval rating and yet no 'reform' in sight. What mockery they have made of our system.

      Dysfunctional and broken serves their agenda well. Very hard to primary the likes of Levin when the party's Biggest Blue Dog, Clinton during the Lieberman challenge stated that 'What's wrong with two Democrat's running?'

      That said in OR we did manage to elect Merkley and every now and then a decent Democratic candidate manages to make it through the corrupt electoral system and get elected but then what? There are always enough of these old bulls and fake Dems to render the better Dems useless.
