    It certainly wasn't accurate if you think we only paid for secret service. I thought willful ignorance was one of your pet peeves.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well you said "conservatives" which implies all of them.

    Excerpt:
    First, some numbers. Mrs. Obama did not travel with 40 friends, a number used by some news outlets.

    She vacationed with two women, one of them a longtime Chicago pal, Anita Blanchard, who is the obstetrician who delivered Sasha and Malia. Blanchard is married to Marty Nesbitt -- President Obama's buddy and the treasurer of Obama's presidential campaign fund.

    So you are equating trips to Crawford to his ranch, which BTW had a situation room, and working office, to Michelle's opulent, and garish display of complete insensitivity with a tax payer funded trip to the Mediterranean coast? Really?

    The two are complete, and utter opposites!
