THAT is where this scumbag has brought this country.
Our ability to publicly dissent from our political leaders is the single greatest thing about America. Our right to give a damn or not give a damn stems from this.
Sorry, sensitive subject. Alot of my family'* blood has been spilled protecting these freedoms over the years.
there was actually 2 people kicked out of the chambers last night. the second was a lady that had a pro troops t-shirt on.
a little research on etiquette for the chambers yielded the knowledge that people are routinely removed or confronted for behavior such as being to loud, and general distractions. People caught popping their gum are asked to give up all gum on them or leave.
