The NRA is controlled by the gun manufacturers, not its members.
West Virginia University's 2012 "Great Expectations" season started out like gangbusters, but will end up at 7-6 after the Orange make it a three-peat. See you local SU fans at the Embassy on the 29th.
Boards, commissions, committees, councils ... all have the same function: to bend the law to the will of rich and powerful insiders. Who was the woman who neutered the pharmaceutical cost reporting law? Wasn't her name Phares, too?

Think more about spending time with our children and grandchildren, especially during the holidays. Do we really have to shop for bargains on Thanksgiving Day or should we be giving thanks for healthy children? Would they rather have our complete, undivided attention or the latest Wii game?

If you didn't need an assault weapon before the rampage in Connecticut, why do you need one now? And a Bushmaster? The same one the shooter used? Dear God, is he your hero now?
This is worth repeating, from [a letter to the editor in] the Minneapolis Star Tribune: "Let's look at what we have learned from this election: Twenty-one of 22 incumbent senators were re-elected, and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the House were re-elected. The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents who were running for re-election to an institution that has an approval rating of about 9 percent. This indicates, as an electorate, we are a nation of idiots. ...."
