    ...people so hung up on the pagan worship of graven images as defined in the Old Testament, there is no graven image more sacred to an American Republican than a gun.

    It doesn't even matter if the damn thing can fire; the phallic aspect alone is enough to cast them into delirium.

    To all you right wing nuts always making fun of hippies that worship trees, whales & science, do you realize how fucking out of control your gun worship appears to decent America?

    To any Republican reading this, I request you write a diary about why Republicans are such assholes. I promise to tip & recommend such a diary.

      is more sacred to a repub:  A gun.  Or a greenback.  

      Mammon and murder -- the M&M Party.

      Is it courageous to propose tax cuts but not identify a single tax expenditure to rein in? Is it courageous to target your deepest cuts on the poorest Americans, who vote in lower numbers and provide little in campaign contributions?

        There are those that prefer greenbacks to guns, and those that prefer guns to greenbacks.  The Tea Party is in the latter camp, though they may prefer hippie punching to both.

          characterize the RKBA zealots as "gun rights" advocates as they seem to be less about "keeping and bearing" arms than about ensuring the right of a certain type of gun be allowed in the free, unimpeded flow of commerce to be sold at a profit just like any other commodity, like soap or toothpaste.  

          Kinda covers both.

          Is it courageous to propose tax cuts but not identify a single tax expenditure to rein in? Is it courageous to target your deepest cuts on the poorest Americans, who vote in lower numbers and provide little in campaign contributions?
