Keep your eyes on the target.
Everyone (for good reason) is crowing over how Sen. Ted Cruz completely creamed Marxist CA Senator Dianne Feinstein. If you haven't seen it, go here here
However, this is classic Democrat Party bait-and-switch.
If you're old enough to remember FReeping in the Clinton years like I have, you'd remember that the Clinton Democrats will put out a bill so extreme as to generate an uproar, then withdraw the bill and admit that they overreach and introduce "more modest" legislation.
Well, the more "modest" gun legislation is none other than Chucky Schumer's Universal Background Checksbill. Sounds reasonable, right? Everybody supports universal backgrounds, right? RIGHT?
Schumer's bill makes virtually all gun owners a felon and sets up registration (and later confiscation).
And, I’ve been around long enough to remember the bait-and-switch of the reign of His Slickness.
And I will never forget.
DiFi wouldn’t know the constitution if you rolled it up and bopped her on the shnoz.

I can't actually disagree, andyk; conversely, I suspect it's more likely she plays dumber than she is: probably knows the Constitution well enough, but simply hates the very thought of commoners having rights and government being constrained. I have a hunch she regards it as a challenge.
I'm very sure of this: a generation or two hence, people are going to wonder how we could have been so blind as to elect obvious America haters.
No wasting capital letters on radical left wing demokkkrat scumbags like difi. She doesn’t garner the respect. She was SOOOOOO dismissive and condescending to Senator Cruz it made me want to puke. An indication of how the majority of the voters in kali think.
If the fix was not in, DiFi and her hubby would both be in jail.
Just saying, if your looking for fair, try cooking.
This is the fight of our life as we know it.
Classic Hegelian Dialect.
You didn’t think they’d come all this way and play by the rules now did you?
They will ram this sh*t through just like they did Obamacare and the heck with what the Constitution and the public thinks.
Blood will flow like rivers before this is fixed. The System is incapable of fixing itself.
Right. It’ll be “commonsense” and “reasonable”, and accomplish what they were wanting all along. Hi, ‘pod — ya’ll stay warm and well.
I hope so...I hope we can get to that point (please, God).
I could never understand how the Holocaust & lead-up to it could occur. I read the words, but could not fathom how it could happen. Now I can. And that's what I tell younger folks, to put things into perspective for them.
Looks like she needs retired. Was she ever up to being senator? Not in my minds eye.
Diane Feinstein just looks so tired.
Don’t you think she looks tired?
That look was not tired, it was pure homicidal hatred for Senator Cruz who had the gall to ask her if she thought her bill was constitutional.
Her face turned black with anger. I expect that Feinstein, Schumer, Durbin, and others will target Cruz for destruction. Wait and see.
no she definitly look very tired.
even her answers were that of a tired person.
she is overwhelmed by the day to day task of the office.
Their problem is Cruz is far smarter; and they know it.
These are the enemies of our country who are stealing our liberty....liberty that hundreds of thousands of good men died to preserve. Are we the generation of lazy, tongue tied quitters that let such inferiors as Obama, Schumer, and Feinstein take those freedoms from us and our children? For shame.
