It’s great to see all these Kansans arm themselves. That should be handy once World War Z hits.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein said the massive government surveillance program is called protecting America. Right. This is the same Feinstein who wants to take our guns away. Not too hard to connect the dots.
Notice that liberals have no problem with Obama shredding the Constitution with all of these scandals. If only one of the scandals had happened under a Republican president, they would be going ballistic.
