Filibustering is great - BUT - that's not all I wish Rand would bust... a few wussie Republican noses and lips would be a good start.
I'm so disgusted with the Republicans since 2010. They have completely failed to rein in the obscene spending and immoral leftist stupidity.
VG made it through the surgery! Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes!
He and I are playing phone tag a bit last night and today. But earlier this morning, right before his surgery, I did reach him in person and talked with him for several minutes. He was irked then because they didn't allow him to have any water or coffee... and it sounds like he is still wanting some coffee! Here are excerpts from his latest phone message to me:
1:46 PM Pacific time:
"This is your Bionic Buddy. I'm alive, I survived -- but I am sore, very very very sore. The whole thing took about 2 hours. [I had] no strokes, none of that [during the surgery] ... but I am badgering them because I really really need my coffee [...] "
I know he will stay the night, and tomorrow there are more tests to be done. But I think he did great! Woohooo!
Thanks for the update. There are many, many here on TRS that are anxious and concerned for this dear man. Our prayers have been answered. Praise the Lord.
Please keep us updated and send our best to VG. Let us know when he's able to come back to chat.
Oh thank you Jesus!!
Thank you for letting us know NoMoreMeh!!!
Our Gentleman must be feistier than he claims if he wanted his coffee right off.
Well sometimes you just gotta have your coffee! It's hilarious that he asked about it again after the surgery!
Thanks NMM, you're a gem….If you talk to him again, Please give him all of our best!!!! ♥♥♥♥
True or False:
A cumulus cloud floated over a west coast elementary school today which was shaped like a pistol. The entire student body was suspended for 5 days, and the Principal is on suicide watch.
Oh have I got a treat for you? Yes, I do.
Warning: You're gonna like it. Take a quick stroll through some timeless American History pics with me and realize what balloonheads McCain and Graham are :-)
Thanks for the re-post RScoop.
Thank you Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz and all who supported the effort. This is our political process in action. At least we are fighting.
Graham and Mc Cain- Take notice.
So if I read this correctly, law enforcement can drone murder me if I'm in a fight with someone by determining there is an imminent threat of harm....I would think Ted Cruz would have authored tighter legislation.
Rand Paul and Ted Cruz introduced legislation to prohibit drone killings on US Citizens within the US.
Good for Mc Connell. Glad to see he didn't join with Mc Cain and Graham.
Here's the bill:
Scoop has a thread with it! Rand Paul scores when no RINO could ever dream of such a victory. And apparently Mitch McConnell stood with Rand Paul today!
For those wanting to know the RINOs who were having dinner with Obama while the filibuster was in progress: 1) McCain-Arizona, 2) Grahamnesty-SC, 3) Corker-Tennessee 4)Coburn-Okla, 5)Toomey-Pennsylvania, 6) Chambliss-Georgia, 7) Burr-NC, 8) Ayotte-NH,
9)Coats-Indiana 10) Johanns-Nebraska 11) Hoven-North Dakota. Never forget these RINOs and their disdain for the American people.
Thank you, Scoop, for putting these videos up. Now I can watch the hours I missed (had to go to bed, due to time difference and a certain housewolf not allowing a lie-in!)and am looking forward to that.
In case you missed it - Holder has now written a letter to Sen Paul, stating the bleedin' obvious, namely the POS doesn't have the authority to kill Americans not involved in combat on American soil:
So Sen Paul wins, McCain and Graham have beclowned themselves for nothing - and we can ask why was is so difficult for the government to give such statement? Did they think they'd get away with using drones? Have they become frightened by the response to the filibuster?
Just wish somebody would do the same thing for Benghazi. The people who died there deserve at least that from Congress.
Rand entered the realm of folk hero status yesterday and last night to millions of Americans. He crossed party lines too...bigtime. It's called leadership and what America is hungry for.
And now, for some open thread silliness:
As soon as the "J. Biden School of Gun Safety" opens up, my wife will attend and get all the training she needs.
1. Two Blasts 101
2. Door Shooting Techniques
3. Ditch The Pistol And Pick Up A Shotgun
4. Shooting In The General Direction Of Strange Sounds
I know, and that's just day one. It'll be an intensive course devoted exclusively to women and shotguns. Graham and McCain should attend too :-)
This event has revealed who the leaders are
Who the phonies are
The OLD GUARD has shown their true colors - BRIGHT YELLOW!
Sen. Paul and those who supported him are my HEROS
Time for the Old Guard to resign their posts!
Senator Rand Paul confronting Senator John McCain.
Now... to break out the Orville's.
I listened to the whole lot and he does repeat himself a lot and goes round in circles as you'd expect, it's not an eloquent speech or anything but I think the ACT is always remembered and at least he wasn't reading from a phone book or other random stuff.
mccain pisses me off
