    With that thinly veiled 'attack' on the NRA, (which I happen to be a life endowment member, BTW) please tell us what you meant by that? Are you now willing to come out of the closet and reveal your real views of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution?

    Are you also in the New York Governors program to push for all the linguini-spined mayors in this nation to impose their big-city gun laws on all of us?

    (Incredible as this may sound, that loonie ignoramus was able to persuade the mayor of the peoples republic of Sioux Falls to ban the carrying of firearms on that cities public property. Go figure)

    So, even we in the state of South Dakota need to keep our guard up. But I'm just curious where you stand on this issue, Yardley? I understand your leftist views, your being in the tank for Obama, and your hatred of previous President Bush. But where are your loyalties concerning gun ownership in this nation?

    Are we to expect you to fall in line with the Schumers, Clintons, Feinsteins, Rangels, and Boxers of this country? If so, please fess up. If you are in thaty camp, I'll stop communicating with you totally, for I will have to view you as a complete socialist, beyond any reason to acknowledge as an American.

    A litmus test you say??? Damn right. If you can't pass that one, you are in the camp of the enemy, not just with your camels nose under the flap, you are part of what will totally kill this nation, as suredly as any of the towel-heads that struck us on 9/11.

    What say you, Mr. Photog?

    What I say is that I used an example that I suspect most of us, including me, would consider completely appropriate (being a Board member for the NRA) to show that the criticism of Solis' relationship to a labor group is based on disagreement with the purpose of the group rather than disagreement with having a congressman serve of the Board of a non-profit, politically active organization. As was noted in an earlier post, the opposition doesn't pass the smell test.

    Personally, I was a member of the NRA for ten years. I quit when the NRA decided that it was more important to pursue a radical conservative agenda on a broad front than to address issues of gun ownership and gun training without regard to other issues. When Wayne LaPierre and similar idiots are gone, I will rejoin.

What about Rep Babara Cubin (WY) or Alaska's Rep. Donald Young? All three are members of the NRA Board of Directors.
    What kind of uproar would there be if those NRA board members "forgot" disclose their positions like Ms. Solis?

    From the LA Times article today:

    In disclosure forms filed with the House from 2004-07, Solis omitted any mention of American Rights at Work. She sent a letter to the House clerk on Jan. 29 correcting those documents, saying she was both a board member and treasurer.

    I guess it finally dawned on her that she should correct that.....just like her husband thought after 16 years its time to pay his taxes so those pesky liens can be removed from his buisness.

    According to Joe Biden, we have 4 new "patriots", since we have 4 new current taxpayers on the rolls.....Geithner, Daschle, Killefer, Mr. Solis.

    Pathetic.

    As I suspected. Always nice to find the enemy has a uniform. When all of us "IDIOTS" are gone, there will be nothing for you to join, you imbicile.

    Like the rest of your socialistic followers that think they can blindly support an Obama administration, that is hellbent on destroying the American form of Democracy, but have the 'rights' they find worthy kept in force, is just remarkable. With your heads in the sand, does it ever occur to you why you are such an easy ass-kicking target?

    Just remember, when the dust settles and the true Americans gather together and realize what your voting has done to this nation, we won't just hone in on Soros and company...we'll recall all those that were only too happy to sell the nation out.

    When the pendulum starts swinging back to the right, don't be standing in it's way, Mr. Leftist. It cuts a larger swath than a sword.

    You are absolutely correct that it should have been on her disclosure forms. You are wrong if you are trying to imply it was some form of secret since it shows up in her Wikipedia biography and on the American Right at Work web sites among other places.

    Edit: BTW, the original post was suggesting that it was inappropriate for her to be a member of Congress while serving on the Board and as Treasurer for American Rights at Work. It is as appropriate as the services of the NRA Board members and members of other board who are ember of Congress.

    UB,

    I think you're crossing some lines with this post, but I guess that ad hominem attacks (a fancy way of saying name calling) and threats are easier than logic and facts.

    UB,
    Since you and others keep bring up the word and are clearly against "socialist" programs, I was wondering if you all will stop taking social security once you get back what you put in with interest and will you refuse medicare (which was incredibly expanded under a Republican president and both houses of congress) in favor of market based insurance options?

    Face it Henry, the Big Boys drive the bus. We are all free to fail, ride or drive. It's the way our system works.

    The word "Politics," is derived from "Poly," meaning Many and from "Ticks," meaning Blood Sucking Parasites-Kinky Freidman.

    Please explain how something we pay into (social security) is a socialist program? being forced into is stupid but of course most government programs are. Still doesn't change the fact that we pay into and are taxed on it. We arent jobless and hoping the government will cut us a check for someone elses work. We go to work and it is deducted from our check in hopes that it will be there later. To bad by the time I retire democrats will have broken into my "lockbox" of social security and i wont have a check coming to me.

    Ah yes! But if you read YOUR post, the first ad hominem, was slung by you. But then leftists find calling someone 'stupid' is not considered name calling...they got so used to it in their Bush-bashing.

    Just be thankful your name hasn't been mentioned to Obama as a possible cabinet member. Then you'd have to answer for your IRS 'forgetfullness'.
