I fixed the quote "Never forget that your lawmakers and their staff exempted themselves from ACA Obamacare while having you pay for their insurance. "

Don't forget, they are representing the interest of the people when they make these rules.

Another pre-Civil War tidbit:

Those creatures cannot be arrested while Congress is in session.

Public servants my a**.

Thanks for the modification. It underscores their true mindset.

They do represent "the people" in their rulemaking; the people who count, in their view: the rule makers.

I was going to say trading SoCal to Mexico, for free, sounded like a good idea. Then I remembered it would mean giving Hollywood away.

Then it seemed like an even better idea.

Yes, just like the view that they are idiots for pushing gun control. They aren't idiots, they know exactly what goal they are pursuing. It just isn't public safety.

Just wait until more states adopt per gun and per round taxes. Illinois and some other municipalities have already adopted these "gun taxes." Even if guns/ammo are still legal, if they are taxed heavily enough, they will become a privilege for only the wealthy
