    Our nation needs to give a super majority to progressives. Notice I didn't say Democrats, because there are some dirtbagsiamongst the Dems also.

    Let's face the facts so eloquently enunciated in this post:
    The Republican party serves the top one percent of Americans and/or their corporate master. The Republican party garners votes from the white trash of America. Yes the white trash of America.

    No-one has EVER proposed taking away the right to own a gun, yet Republicans and their lobbies (yes plural lobbies), using their frontman the NRA, use the threat of a lie to rouse the white trash rabble. Big oil, tobacco, big pharma, Wall Street, K Street and the "banks" all contribute directly or indirectly to the success of the NRA.

    Ignorant racists, bigots, xenophobes, homophobes and the kind of people that still can't speak english (or pretend not to be able to because they like Justified), despite a common language, will never change. They will always be the unwitting (or witting) lackeys of the Republican party.

    The only way forward is 61 Senators that tow the line and a solid Progressive majority in the House, end of story. Believing lying corporate backed scum like Harry Reid is no longer an option, let's weed 'em out once and for all.

    There is no "riposte", no arguement, if you, as a lay person or supposed representative of "the people", voted against the background check bill (all Republicans) it is not a political gambit, it has nothing to do with an ammedment, and it shows an ignorance and disdain for your fellow citizens.

    The M16 and Kalashnikov were designed with a caliber and muzzle velocity so as to wreak as much havoc as possible on the human body. Hunting, plinking and protecting one's home never entered into the equation.

    If you voted against gun control, if you don't believe in climate change and want to waste the country's time winging about gays and abortion then you are either corrupt or white trash.

    Let's get the super majority and stopped F'ing around.

      39.6%, 35%, 33% and 28% to a single rate of 25%, and also reducing rates from 25% and 15% to a single rate of 10% could have an effect on revenue.  Logic, reason, and Arithmetic say that the lower rates result in less revenue. Republicans say no, no, no, the lower rates make the economy boom, everyone gets rich and the increase in incomes means more revenue, not less.  That's the Repubican definition of "revenue neutral."  It was tried with the EGTRRA & JGTRRA passed in 2001 & 2003.
      The J in JGTRRA stands for Jobs which never materialized.

      There is no existence without doubt.
