It's official now. Not only will Democrats have control of the House, but they now have control of the Senate as well. Webb has defeated Allen in Virginia.


Update: The vote count in Virginia won't be certifies until Nov. 27, so until then, it's not truly official.


In the meanwhile, we may have to stock up on some Vaseline for the screwing that we may get.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pissin my pants right now. What happens to our gun rights will remain to be seen. The only thing I can say is that it is a slight majority in the Senate and a lot of those Dems that got elected are pro gun and very right-leaning for a Dem. So it may not be that bad but '08 is MUST WIN time and we are on the defensive now. Atleast Florida got it right. We weren't fooled by the tone created by the Dems but federal laws created beyond the scope of Florida is what scares me.

we still have our wonderfully right wing supreme court to strike down any anti-gun laws.

I'm not.

I am not even upset about the outcome.

Honestly, I think it'll be good for the country. The Republicrats were rampaging around throwing the bill of rights in the toilet at every opportunity.

You may have gotten the "Disaster recovery protection act," but the same day you also got Public Law 109-364, the "John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007" (H.R.5122) (2), which was signed by the commander in chief on October 17th, 2006, in a private Oval Office ceremony, allows the President to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder."

Read the entirety of the law here http://fivesevenforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4807, and Bushsky's "interpretation" of the stipulations placed upon its excercise.

I find this more frightening than any 10 Lautenberg amendments...

Well put, there are somethings more important than our person firearms.

I don't know about that. Our personal firearms are all that stand between us and our rights being "supressed" by the government. Which IS, after all, why the government wants them so badly.

Good point however.... If my memory is correct ALL I heard during the Katrina disaster is how Bush didn't DO ANYTHING. He actually did all he could under the law and it was the local Gov. that botched it. Landraue wouldn't release control of the national guard and local emergency people untill it was too late and Nagan didn't evacuate the People. I think if the local Gov. wont lift a finger to save the People from a disaster the Pres. should have the authority to step in.

Oh, BTW. They were saying that Bush intentionally blew up the levies to kill the black folk. :confused:
The loony tune "moon bats" are growing in number. No wonder the Dems. took control of both houses

What authority, under the constitution, did Bush have to do anything more than what he did? And what was the NG used for once it was mobilized? They attacked citizens and deprived them of their rights and property.

The NG and Active Military are NOT police. They are COMBAT TROOPS, trained to kill, not pacify.

What authority did Nagan have to "evacuate people?" Don't they have their own two feet? Didn't they get lots of warining that the storm was coming? They chose not to. Lazyness? Apathy? Believing someone else should be responsible for them? Those things are the problem, not that the government "didn't do something."

When the Federal Government steps in to do ANYTHING, they screw it up and cost people their lives. I do NOT look forward to the day of seeing an Airborne Ranger guarding my bus stop, or a Marine Recon Commando "pacifying" my kids school.

This is no longer the "slippery slope," we've all slid down and need to claw our way back to the top.

i'm kinda glad the dems got control. now we'll see if we can have sensible legislation, considering they'll have to work with the sitting prez. however, if a dem president gets elected in '08, better believe that we'll have a kalifornication of the us.

I'm firmly behind MO on this one. Ideally, the Dems will keep the hyper-erosion of power checks from continuing. At any rate, I'm betting they'll be too busy to actually get any anti-gun laws passed until at least 2008. In the meantime, I'm going to continue buying stuff like I have been (though I'll probably stop for the next several months, as panic spikes prices).

Personally, I'm hoping Hillary runs for the Dems in '08. We won't have much to worry about then, because there's no way a majority of the country could be stupid/crazy enough to vote for her.

we were caught sleeping and i believe that we are awake now and 2008 the lion that has been awakened will roar at the polls, support your local political groups, in my case the Texas State Rifle Asssociation and for God's sake support the NRA.

Several way to look at the current situation. If G.W. has the balls and the dems with only a slim majority my best case scenario is total gridlock. A good thing in my mind because I have yet to see any government action that was a Constitutionally a good thing. If dems show their true colors they will be shown the door in 2008. Someone mentioned that most of the dems were more conservative. THis is because they would not be elected if they told the truth about what they want. Fact is, we are screwed on Supreme Court appointements now. dems have taken control by controlling the courts and legislating unconstitutionally. Just some thoughts.
