My hats off to those 21 who stood their ground. I would have liked to se one brave sole lay it all out on the line and put a hold on Holder.

Gee... McCain voted YEA.... so did Murkowski from Alaska...

I suppose the only way Holder will understand No to a new AWB is by helping our state reps introduce bills threatening separation like NH and the west state which I can't remember.

It would be nice, for those of us who have no idea of what you are talking about, if you would do a brief "recap" of what it is that these people voted yea or nay on...or at least make reference to which ever thread you discussed it to begin with.

Thanks

Dave

The description of the thread is, "Holder confirmed"... As in Eric Holder, the guy helped write the Assault Weapons Ban. The guy who believes the second amendment does not grant rights to individuals, the same one who sent a memorandum to the supreme court stating such. The guy fails at being "for the people."

Virginia's Senate delegation: Webb + Warner = Losers

Great math since Webb = Loser and Warner = Loser, it only makes sense that Webb + Warner = Loser.

The real question is how are we going to get rid of these idiots? Voting against them did not work, and the demographic in Virginia is only getting worse.

the problem is that there wasn't enough of us voting againsthim. Warner has always been a scum of the earth liberal even though he runs as a republican. He is a chump who has stabbed what few conservatives there are in the back. He is perhapls the worst turn coat in Virginia politics in a long time. He's a perfect example of why the term "republican" is a meaningless gesture nowadays.



Webb is, uh, well, just like warner. So what if he is a former Marine. He is a disgrace to the uniform now. typical lowlife. If you in VA recall, Webb is the liar for hire that ran the campaign ad for Hussin O stating that the obamanist would pose no danger to our gun owner rights. I knew then that webb is a political, uh, harlot.
