    Like I tell my wife. Often times you can tell a liberal just by their looks.

    Exhibit B submitted to support this hypothesis:

    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
    "Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.

    Yeah, that sounds like the hard-core, right-wing party I've been looking for.

    As sad as it is to say, just going off of this, i despise these people much less than many of the senators who cast votes this morning.

    a poor plan that is well executed will produce better results that a good plan that is poorly executed.

    This is America. I have the right to go places. You have the right to stay home. You have the right to be upset about me going places. I have the right to not care.

    How right you are. The only thing in their favor is that they earn their money the old-fashioned way - by growing it. That is amazingly unlike 99.99% of politicians who earn it the "Beltway" way - by stealing it from the taxpayers.

    They will probably move to California when they get out . . . and get elected.

    Without digging into it, sounds more like classic liberalism, rather than what it's morphed into these days.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    On the up side, neither one of them looks to have much mileage left in them.

    They look more like left-over hippies from the 1960s to me.
