an entity demonstrably aggressive to citizens for partisan reasons:

SHOULD they have guns?

I’d say a good start is the billion penalty and pull ALL of their guns.

All of them.

Cuz right now there’s no incentive TO BE NICE.

It’s about time they did SOMETHING. Now if they would just defund the parties and vacations for the royal family, that would be peachy.

It’s one of those ‘reduction in future increases’ fake cut.

The VA admins that got paid bonuses for their bogus record keeping should be prosecuted. DOJ won’t touch them either.

Simply another GOP dog and pony show. ALL of the money (and probably some extra) will be restored in conference when Harry Reid refuses to accept ANY cuts at all in anything, and the cowardly GOP House will quietly acquiesce, yet again for the umpteenth time.

This is what I’ve been talking about. Simply defund Obama’s nonsense and be done with it. Congress has the power. The Senate gets no say in the matter.

What is a slap in the face, Mr. Gosar, is allowing Lois G. Lerner to remain a free woman.
