    Virginia Democrats conspired against gun store, emails show

    JB Gates, owner of Nova Firearms, opened a shop in McLean after protesters thwarted his expansion efforts in Arlington County by pressuring his landlord into breaking his lease. Delegate Kathleen Murphy, McLean Democrat, wrote an email to state Sen. Barbara Favola, Arlington Democrat, seeking help in shutting down the gun store. Ms. Favola was instrumental in organizing opposition to Mr. Gates’ shop in Arlington.

    In Dallas the crooked (non-partisan) city councilmen took bribes from strip clubs tell cops to ignore prostitution and whatnot - to the detriment of the neighborhood. Feds convicted the Pols and they did a little prison time.

    It isn't.

    The two parties just share the duties of monitoring and controlling your behavior. Without ever admitting they're doing the same thing "the other guy" does - because then they couldn't make the "other guy" into the "bad guy".
