    Sen. Dianne Feinstein emerged from a closed-door meeting with Majority Leader Harry Reid on Monday — but her ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines didn’t.

    Mr. Reid turned down her attempt to bring her ban on 157 different weapons and ammunition clips aboard the Democratic Party’s comprehensive gun bill, Politico reported.

    Her bill instead will have to go forth separately or as an amendment — and that means it’s probably not going anywhere.

    What do you think of this ladies response to her Senator:

    Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the
    Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security " to a Milk Cow
    with 310 million teats.

    Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ... I think
    she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!

    Oh sooo true!

    "Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!

    1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit)
    for FIFTY YEARS.

    2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I
    was 15 years old. I am now 63).

    3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other
    Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for
    decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give
    OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus
    bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme
    that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

    4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk"
    pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors

    nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your"shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

    5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into
    Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules
    of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the
    economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from
    Medicare to pay the bills.

    6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes
    our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again.
    Why? Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately
    that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now,
    you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off
    YOUR debt.

    To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit"
    to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions
    for YOU:

    1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during
    your pathetic 50-year political career?

    2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career,
    and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the
    American taxpayers?

    3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

    4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you
    proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual,
    have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

    It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called
    Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase
    thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from
    millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

    And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our
    expense, you lunk-headed, leech.

    That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole
    purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we
    know it, and you know that we know it.

    And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch. NO, I
    did not stutter.

    P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements". WHAT
    AN INSULT!!!!

    I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years It's my
    money-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop
    patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out
    these monthly checks.

    EVERYONE!!!
    If you like the way things are in America enjoy life.

    If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers, says, please
    PASS IT ON!!!!

    Captain Bullshit. I like that one. Boy, that gal is PO. Good for her to put it into plain English, for all to understand, even Captain Bullshit.

    Reid knows it's a loser. Pity McLame doesn't.

    There has been a trade off somewhere in this. These people are famous for their 'under the table deals'.

    The trade off is that non of the Dems need to vote on the bill one year before relections. Even Reid is up next year.

    Yes her bill instead will have to go forth separately or as an amendment — and that means she will attach magazine limitation ban and assault weapons ban to background check legislation when it comes up after Easter. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is not going to let this go away, she is a snake in the grass and from California, so don't let your guard down.

    Yes,

    They will figure a way to get it passed as an amendment. They are never to be trusted!

    Since I live in California, I can assure you, this state has some of the most sneakiest snakes found anywhere in the world!

    Harry Reid is not up for re-election next year. US Senators serve a six year term, he was re-elected two years ago. He's here for four more. He's the best Democrat shooting friend we will ever have...

    The big question is who will move to Colorado? And how many will move out?

    Without question this was done by dirty Harry to try and prevent the Dems from losing the Senate next year. All of them know they are in trouble. Hopefully a lot of people will remember all of this and vote accordingly. You would have to be a very foolish person to not know what the Dems will do if they get back control of Congress.

    So, be it true.....feensteen added the bill controlling sudafed to the renewal of the Patriot Act 'cause it wouldn't pass the Senate on it's own. R senator from MO or MS was co-sponsor, lost last election to Dem Claire McClaskil (sp).

    Look out, this AWB is not dead yet.

    Rick,

    No question. They are laying in wait to pounce at the right EMOTIONAL moment to manipulate the throngs of "low information" Democratic voters. The media is complicit. Hollywood will join in....Deja vu all over!
    This is NOT going away as long as they are in POWER. This is why I get so pissed when MANY IDIOTS stayed home and did not vote in the last election....but, worse, even BIGGER IDIOTS voted for unelectable third party candidates and ensured Obama's victory.

    Maybe, during mid term elections THIS TIME AROUND they will make sure they do not waste their votes and vote for any ELECTABLE CANDIDATE other than a DEMOCRAT!

    THE DEMOCRATS MUST LOSE THE SENATE!
