The People's Comments:

I must have missed it. But it looks like the Senate did pass a resolution to keep this ban going. The odd part there was 12 cosponsors including Clinton and Levin, but no Kerry. He seems to be absent from the vote too... odd isn't it?

Justin is expecting me to disagree, so here we go. The idea that a President cannot influence the business of the Congress reflects the intentions of the founding fathers, but not the reality of what our government has become. Justin seems to think that when Ol' GW tells Denny 'Wild Thing' Hastert he has an idea, Hastert says, 'Well, Sir, you aren't a member of Congress, so go fuck yourself.' I would love for that to be the case, to prove that the group of elected officials is greater than the singular man, but it isn't. When the man in the Oval Office (no matter who it is) says jump, members of his party in the Legislature say 'how high, Sir?' In the interests of honesty, the President said he would sign an assault weapons ban if one crossed his desk, but GOP'ers in Congress who would do anything for the man have yet to put it on his desk. So sure, perhaps Senator Kerry did simplify things, but at least he didn't outright lie, the way a Republican would. But let's get down to brass tacks here, Justin. As of Monday, it becomes legal to walk around with an AK47. Any plans on buying one?
