    Vote was 75-21 to confirm.

    Make sure you know how your senators voted.

    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.

    As was expected, my "reps" voted yea.

    That makes two of us. Granted, Alexander is only just slightly to the right of the average RINO.

    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

    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."

    Both my Senators Brownback (R) KS and Roberts stood true
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson

    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.

    There's been a change.

    Its no longer Senator John Warner. Its now Senator Mark Warner.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Well, Citizen, you're half right. It's no longer Senator John Warner; it's now Mark Warner.


    But there's been no change

    Mark Warner is junior senator, who has to do as he's told to stay a senator.

    Unless the repubs can field a strong candidate who doesn't run on the Christian Right ticket, they've given up Virginia. As it stands today, I think an independent could beat the type of Republican candidates we've seen, and you need a strong organization with lots of money to defeat the Dem machine.

    I think you have confused John Warner with Mark Warner.

    As for the AWB, you can count on both Webb and Warner to oppose it.

    The Holder nomination fight was not about guns: it was about the pardon of Mark Rich. Holder cannot deliver an AWB without the senate, which he does not have.

    gridlock that doesn't work.



    On the bright side, government corruption is over with this this joker.
    He will never meet an government position that breaks the law for the next 4 years.
    Freeing up much needed prison space for the rest of us.

    Lets hope all that new national park money is for signs letting the people know you can carry now!!!
