Boehner Team Calls TEA Party Members “Insane Asylum,” “Extremists” - Go Figure
In a crushing blow to Speaker John A. Boehner, GOP leaders were forced to pull his “plan B” tax measure from the floor at the eleventh hour as it became clear his conference would refuse to support it.
Unable to bring his fellow Republicans along on a measure that would allow tax rates to rise on millionaires, and with Democrats vowing to block the bill, the Ohio Republican issued a statement Thursday night pushing responsibility to find the way forward squarely on to President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

Editor's Note on Gun Control
The 2nd Amendment simply states, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
George Mason, co-author of the 2nd Amendment said, "[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually...I ask, who are the militia? They consist of now of the whole people, except a few public officers. But I cannot say who will be the militia of the future day. If that paper on the table gets no alteration, the militia of the future day may not consist of all classes, high and low, and rich and poor..."
I'll say this, gun control is not about controlling crime, it is about controlling people.
Gary Wood put it well when he said, "If the founders had no concern the federal government could grow tyrannical there would have been no reason for them to put in the 2nd Amendment as part of the contract being formed between the sovereign states and the newly formed, limited federal government. Tyranny was a major concern since the founders knew the habit of man was a habit of seeking power and authority over their fellow man. The right of citizens of a nation to keep and bear arms was necessary!"
Any law passed by the federal government prohibiting United States citizens to keep and bear arms is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution. Period. End of story.
Let's put it another way. The 2nd Amendment was also designed to protect us against any tyrannical government. Could you imagine Germany having the authority of telling the United States what weapons they could use during World War II? What is the difference of a tyrannical United States government telling US citizens how and if they are allowed to be armed? I rest my case.
