I think it's important to remember that it's not a party issue (dem/rep, lib/cons). Both sides of our 2-party system are equally guilty of trodding all over the Constitution. If you watch closely, there were others in the pack of wolves who were siding with Feinstein with manipulative and emotional remarks, and she probably felt like she came out of that crossfire unscathed. There's probably also a lot of people (here included) who would think the same. You can rationalize anything. Of course Feinstein and her ilk came out with the 'child porn' analogy, and then the other idiot came out with the comment that none of the rights in the Bill of Rights are exact, or indefinite, or whatever he said. All they have to do is convince a bunch of people and slide by the Supreme Court, and they get what they want.

This won't end without a fight, guaranteed.

I sure would like to get my hands on some imploding bullets. Sounds pretty sweet.

Wait...there was something even more important said by Dick Durbin late in the video:

None of these rights are absolute.

Excuse me Mr. rights sure are #ing absolute! They were given to me upon my arrival on this Earth and I would be very pleased if you kept your dirty hands off of them.

Thank you Sen. dICk Durbin!

Was I the only one listening to Dick Durbin at the end?

"The Senator knows, having attended law school, and professes to have some experience in the Constitution: None of these rights are absolute. None of them."

Out of all the political idiocy I've seen over the years, that one enraged me.

"The right of the people to ...... shall NOT BE INFRINGED."

Where was the outrage? Where was the slick talk? Where is the response to THAT?

If you would have gotten to see this committe hearing on CSPAN, as opposed to that short clip, you would have been really outraged. They not only harped on that point, but when faced with real questions about the constitutionality of a ban simply chose to insult the questioner . . . almost no question asked was given a direct answer. Schumer (NY) and Lehey (VT) would smuggly gloat . . . Feinstein would put up a hissy. Cruz was the only Senator that called them on it and Lehey, as chairman, limited his questions and even insulted the State of Texas more than once, equating them to anti-intellectual racist religious nuts. I'm pretty sure, even though the other Repubs on the committee voted "nay", they are in full agreement with the ban.

You know, I'm usually more apt to criticize the Republicans (because I still consider myself a Rep) and ignore the Dems, but these Dems need to be very careful because when and if they lose their power....they will be right there with the rest of us fighting for their individual rights!

Durbin, Feinstein.....I would fight for your rights if I was called to do so. Please take one easy step to protect mine!

I may not agree with her on everything, but she has spoken out against Monsanto and GMO's and was a supporter of the Right to Know prop 37. Attack her if you must on this specific issue, but based on her stance on Monsanto I feel the need to give her credit where it is due.

I guess it comes down to if you think she is being honest about Monsanto and GMO's? She would never get elected as the Senator that represents NorCal, with the amount of farms and wineries in her district, if she publicly stated that she backed them. Politicians support a lot in public that they don't support behind closed doors . . . what has she done at the Federal level to fight against this? She's only put in a vote on three bills related to corporate regulation and has a 39% approval rating from the US COC.

Personally, I don't believe a GD thing she says, even the event that happened with NWLF in '76. Just as I don't believe Repubs like McCain that say they support the 2nd Amendment. Feinstein was a rat as a mayor of SF and rat since she took office in the Senate.

Well, Rookie Senator Ted Cruz sure chose a heck of a way to make a stand and memory. I certainly respect him. That took guts like I rarely ever see. He was already running with 2 strikes as a Senator from Texas and a first term one at that. However....attacking the Queen Bee of the Senate? That's called Moxy!

She's been there since 1992 and was literally serving in San Francisco city Government the year he was born. Don't get me wrong...I'm no fan. She's the wicked witch of the west and I say that as an original Californian and someone whose followed her antics over the years pretty close. The California gun laws going back to her first days in real positions of power to start throwing them at people have been something to see. (Oh, she's Senate, not California elected for domestic politics..but Queen Bees influence far and Ted Kennedy and Mass.)

She's also just picked up her next term this last election. That means she'll literally be waving goodbye to Obama with 2 years of her own, left to go. Of all the women to make an enemy of.. Wow. Assuming he knew what he was doing, my respect for him sure rises by several rungs! (Now lets see if he keeps this aggressiveness for any length of time...if this pressure doesn't break him, nothing will)

I wouldn't even be suprised if she had more than a spectator's role in her taking over as Mayor . . .

The Moscone–Milk assassinations were the killings of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who were shot and killed in San Francisco City Hall by former Supervisor Dan White on November 27, 1978. White was angry that Moscone had refused to re-appoint him to his seat on the Board of Supervisors, from which White had just resigned, and that Milk had lobbied heavily against his re-appointment. These events helped bring national notice to then-Board President Dianne Feinstein, who became mayor of San Francisco and eventually U.S. Senator for California

Very good observation. Did you also catch that bit out of Feinstein in which she said that the business of Congress is to pass laws and it is up to the Supreme Court to determine if they are constitutional or not?

Frankly, I am to the point that the Enterprise should be parked 25 miles off the coast and be used as a staging ground/temporary living quarters for those holding any elected or appointed office to use to find another country to take them in if they do not wish to uphold the Constitution.

Deport them to the boat, give them 90 days to find somewhere else to live or make them walk the plank to make room for the next batch of traitors that violate of their oath of office. Heck I would even be willing to pay more in taxes to get that done.

We have "imploding bullets," "rights are not absolute," and someone even coined the
term "Frankfeistein". lol

good thread

What a great point. And look at her trying to appeal to emotion, a typical fallacy. That is why this is gaining ground with the uneducated people, or people who are not educated on the Constitution. There are absolutely NO exceptions, as the Constitution says SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED UPON. And she is sitting there not even addressing the real issue, but is attempting to gain support without logic.

All Democrats and Republicans need to go. Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. It is a filthy currency tarnished by greed and corruption that will no longer purchase honest representation for the American People. Democrats and Republicans conspire in Washington to scam, defraud, and extort money from the American people and give it to their butt buddy corporate friends.

Every election cycle we have to choose between the lying, thieving, whore mongering Democrat or the lying, thieving, whore mongering Republican After every election the headlines scream "REPUBLICANS WIN!" or they scream "DEMOCRATS WIN!". But they never, never, never scream "AMERICANS WIN!". Why is that? It is because when Democrats and Republicans win, Americans get screwed.

The only way Americans will ever have an honest government is to quit electing Democrats and Republicans. We need to elect citizen statesmen who love America more than they love power and money. Men who can stand on their own two feet instead of being propped up by gangs of criminals. Honest men with sweat on their brow and calluses on their hands.

The true patriot is not the man who blindly defends a corrupt government. The true patriot is the man who defends the Constitution from that government.

Man Im glad I voted for this guy.

He really stood by his words and charged right into DC. He has only been a Senator for a couple months, and his name is already all over the place.

Guns are a BIG part of American culture. And a "right to bear arms" is a well known part of that culture. I am a Kiwi and I think I knew that term by the age of 7 or so ( probably from TV ) .

If people don't like the culture Why don't they move to another country ? I know I would if I really felt unsafe.

It seems insane to think you can change an ingrained culture with laws. Even if you succeeded it will only be effective against law abiding citizens.

Why assault weapons were allowed in the first place is irrelevant ( I personally find the idea very Rambo and dramatic ). The fact is the horse has bolted .

A pair of fists, a knife , a handgun or a bazooka. As long as its a fair fight.......
