Actual quote of the day, Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli:
"Never before in our history has the federal government ordered Americans to buy a product under the guise of regulating commerce. Imagine if this bill were that in order to protect our communities and homeland security, every American had to buy a gun. Can you imagine the reaction across the country to that?"
Referring to the Health Care Act requirement that everyone must buy insurance for the whole 10,000 page healthcare boondoggle to even work.
Hmmm. It would be nice if every American had a rifle. But I wouldn't force it on you. I'd make that my starting position and compromise down to "Every American CAN buy a gun. And use it for all prudent legal purposes" in a debate with a gun rights restrictionists from the Brady whatchamacallit. I want to meet on the middle ground, after all.
Quick update - I can put socks on all my myself now (just like a big boy!), and I've cut *way *back on the pain meds: none yesterday, and going to shoot for none today. ...
