    I had the opportunity to meet both of our Senators in Washington DC last week. Although I don't agree with all of their individual policies, they are both very smart and savvy women who know how to get things done in Washington DC.

    The state of California is lucky to have two very powerful and experienced senators.

    I also got to see Senator Feinstein argue on the floor on a the Thune Amendment, for national reciprocity for concealed carry licenses. It was voted down later in the day.

    Besides their party affiliation, I don't think you really know a Goddamned thing about our senators.
    So you think that California is lucky to have these two as their Senators? I think those two are indicative of why California is about to go bankrupt. They have no idea how to serve the people....just themselves.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Maybe.

    But the Dems are inept villains, which is unpardonable. They're like villains out of a Jerry Lewis movie.

    California going bankrupt has nothing to do with their Senators, and everything to do with the idiotic policy of running legislation through referendums. You know the referendum where people want more programs, then they have the referendum where they refuse a tax increase to pay for said program. Yeah I know that is simplistic to say the least, but California's budget problems have been a very long time brewing.

    Besides, did anyone bother to read the end of the story:
    Feinstein spokesman Gil Duran says staff offered the retirees an in-person meeting with the senator during a Los Angeles visit next week but that they demanded to speak with her immediately.
    Ummm, was she even at her office? They were offered a meeting with the Senator in one week, they refused. Thus they needed to leave. I would expect the same treatment with my Congressman.

    All are equal. Some are just more equal than others.

    Freedom of speech is NOT for those that oppose the Democrats/Liberals.


    If it were not for the double standard, Democrats would have no standards at all.

    Yes we can.
    This is what you can expect from the Stalinist Liberals. You never saw this happen under Bush. I'm surprised these old folks were thrown into a gulag yet. Maybe they are waiting to complete their death counseling first.

    How the **** is this news? They would have been treated the same way if they were 25 year olds demanding to talk to Feinstein about the same topic. A group of people in a Rep's office doing the same thing would have encountered the same result.

    That's what I usually ask myself after reading an "apdst" post.

    I would have to disagree with you in regards to Barbara Boxer. I think she is one of the dumbest people in the Federal government and way out of her league. She is a demagogue and mentally operates beyond the boundaries of reality.

    Well, if you have to ask, there's no point intrying to explain it to you.
