    myself called him and told him to tell Bloomberg et al to shove it and to vote no on the entire package...

    You got your vote, and he voted for cloture so you could have the vote.

    Many of us made damn sure to point out to our Senators how we felt about further gun control and it wasn't in favor.....

    Want to be real mad at a few AZ Pols, it looks like our entire Dem Contingent except for Grijalva voted for CISPA  including Barber who took Giffords seat and Sinema the fake Dem we Baja Zonies tried to warn others about....hell even Pastor, a PC member voted for CISPA......

    Oh and there was only 40 votes in favor of a new AWB no matter how confused some seem to be and 40 doesn't win anything.....

    It was funny when I realized all the money Bloomie wasted due to having Flakes campaign phone number that no longer accepts anything as the linked number in his commercial...with talking points even right before they connected you to basically dead air....that was worth the price of admission.....heh.....

        the L.A. area.....you couldn't pry me out of the desert....

        Now granted if I was in the PHX metro area I would feel different but I am about 25 miles SW of Saguaro National Park West unit out in the desert 35 miles from the border, spring is here, the Ocotillo and Palo Verde are blooming, Mesquite and Acacia leafing out and everything greening up....The cactus are a couple days from bloom.......This is the Sonoran Desert at its best except for the middle of a good thunderbuster........

        I'm here till they spread my ashes on my land........
