So the GOP wants zero restrictions of any sort on the second amendment....but is totally ok with erasing the first amendment and locking up peaceful protesters...?

Did I understand that correctly?

Especially since the reasoning they give for protecting the second is so they can defend the rest of them.

"Whether singing or observing, everyone is subject to arrest."

May as well be the new Republican motto.

She should have kept her mouth shut, gotten arrested, and then when the other Lawmakers ask where she was, she could have made a much bigger deal of it all.  "I'm in jail, courtesy of Scott Walker"

Officer Andrew Hyatt was circling the upper level of the Rotunda on Tuesday, warning observers that the chief of police considered the sing-along an unlawful gathering and therefore spectators were subject to arrest.

"Whether singing or observing, everyone is subject to arrest," he told one observer. When asked to define the parameters in which observers were subject to arrest, Hyatt said "in this area."

The GOP wants people who pull shiat like this running the country. Remember that on election day. Remember it when you hear them whining about PRISM or the IRS "harassing" Republican groups.

If you pull the proverbial lever for a Republican, you're an asshole, a moron, or both. Period. Democrats are far, FAR from great, but Republicans have repeatedly demonstrated that they would be infinitely worse in every respect, and in our current system, third parties have no real chance at beating the big two. Yeah, voting for the lesser evil isn't ideal, but it's the best we can do until a third party manages to oust one of the big two.

One of the pastors at the church I grew up in got arrested at the NC protests. I'm pretty sure she's proud of this fact.

/As she should be.

Yup. Did a camping/river float trip up there last month. It is Illinois' largest state park.

Yea. Madison is actually a pretty awesome town. I've always had fun there. But in between bars, why not stop in? Capitol buildings are usually pretty cool.

CSB:
The first time I wanted to punch a Republican, it was 1997ish, and the Republican in question was Asa Hutchinson. He was bloviating on and on about the beejer Clinton got, and my only thought was 'Jesus, man - Newt farking Gingrich is still in Congress. Shut the ever loving fark UP!'.

Anyway, the GOP is better at finding punchable faces than FacePunchers, Inc.

// their opinions, philosophies and theories of governance don't really help matters

Well, when people like me express our outrage at any part of the Constitution being violated, we get labelled "nut job" and the like, and accused of worshipping an outdated document that no longer applies to a modern society.

I support our Constitution. The whole damn thing.  It's the only thing that makes this country special. Without it, we are no different than the rest of the world.
