    They can sell gun powder, gasoline, dangerous chemicals, and all sorts of other things without a BGC. Why do you single out only one item? Oh yeah, that's right ... AGENDA.

    Kinda funny how a right requires a license. The US needs to decide whether we actually have a Constitution or not.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Based on the last election, it seems less that half the country believes we have one.
