Don't kid yourselves: it's all about fucking money [View all]

The NRA is a terrorist organization and should be RICO'd

The republiklans in Congress don't give a fuck if even the entire nation was shot to death. It's about money pure and simple. The NRA funds campaigns and also punishes by running crazy folks against the greedy and indifferent. If you are a republiklan politician you have to toe the party line or your campaign funds will dry up, you will be primaried and out of a job. We have let money rule whether we live or die both in how we let money run our elections and also in how we parse our health care, FUCK all republiklans!@!!! FUCK the NRA
