Republicans are the original control-freaks.



President Trump floored Republican lawmakers Wednesday when he embraced gun restrictions during a televised meeting at the White House, putting him at odds with his own party and with the National Rifle Association.

But it wasn’t the first time a powerful GOP voice defied the gun lobby.

On May 3, 1994, Ronald Reagan and two other former presidents sent a letter to House members, urging them to support a controversial ban on lethal, military-style assault weapons. At the time, President Clinton was battling Republicans, conservative Democrats and the NRA to pass a bill barring many semiautomatic rifles.

Clinton needed all the help he could get it. He got it from Reagan, who still carried great weight in the Republican Party, as well as Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.

Andrew John Volstead (October 31, 1860 – January 20, 1947) was an American member of the United States House of Representatives from Minnesota, 1903–1923, and a member of the Republican Party. His name is closely associated with the National Prohibition Act of 1919, usually called the Volstead Act. The act was the enabling legislation for the enforcement of Prohibition in the United States beginning in 1920. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Volstead

Why would people who take your beer and weed and tell you what kind of sex you can have be interested in protecting your right to own guns???

It's like they're not just a little confused about which party is on their side...they've got it completely backward.

Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

And the worst part is they're proud of it.

I've admitted I was wrong, why can't they? We have to drag humanity down over their self-esteem issues? This is more about arrogance than ignorance.

Better practicing kissing in preparation to give your freedoms an affectionate send off https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01- ... ncy-report

If the orange moron appoints another one, the only remaining freedom will be that of praising dear leader.
