Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

Bill Maher “John Boehner said today he wants to take away North Korea’s missiles, but he won’t because that’s a slippery slope from there to gun control.  Well, there was a small victory on gun control this week.  You saw Republicans, they wanted to have a filibuster.  They did not have the votes for a filibuster, so they, there will be a debate about the gun bill.  And, given the recent rash of gun violence in America, the Republicans said it was the least they could do.  Literally, they had a meeting and said, what is the least we can do?  The absolute least.  So, where we are now is 68 Senators want to move forward on background checks, and 31, almost all of them Republicans, say no, that’s the death of freedom.  They are sticking with the principle that asking for any kind of ID would be a horrible violation of the Constitution, unless it keeps black people from voting.”
