Quotes

...As a veteran senator who has participated in a functional Congress, he recently wrote that many of the "Senate’s greatest legislative achievements have been the direct result of robust debate and an open amendment process that allowed senators to deliberate earnestly and arrive at eventual consensus." More senators need to join Sen. Hatch in reestablishing the Senate’s integral role in our constitutional system
...But when push comes to shove, when confronted by that desert island question—i e. "if you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one smart phone..." —the answer is simple. Lumia 1520. Windows Phone
...States Senate are proposing repealing the free speech protections of the First Amendment, the usual reaction is a gasp of disbelief," he continued. "Could we really have entered a world so extreme that our common ground no longer even includes the First Amendment to the Constitution? The First Amendment protects our most foundational rights, and yet under the amendment we're debating today that 49 democrarats have signed their name to, the First Amendment would in effect have crossed out the free speech. Why? Because 49 Democrats have cosponsored a constitutional amendment that is currently on the floor of the senate, being voted on this week, that would give congress blanket authority to regulate political speech. From the dawn of our republic, we have respected the rights of citizens to express their views. It is the right upon which every other civil liberty is predicated. But in theDemocratic senate of 2014, citizens' free speech rights are tools for partisan warfare."
"The messaging needs to be more on being prepared and knowing we're tending to have more extreme events" said Graham Brannin, planning director in Tulsa, Okla
