It would be one of the old slave state representatives

The Republicans and American gun nutz have become unhinged because the greatest President in their lifetime is making an executive order to reinforce gun laws that are already on the books. Thirty-thousand people are killed each year by guns, and President Obama's sensible gun legislation is met with irrational Republican vitriolic ire.

Congressmen Steven Palazzo of Mississippi is asking his colleagues in Congress to censure President Obama for his executive actions on gun "control" sales. Congress wants to censure the first Black President like they actually censured the first Black Attorney General, Eric Holder. It is no coincident that censure is being pushed by one of the old slave-state representatives for a resolution against another Black official. Calling President Obama the "N-word" is being masked by a Congressional censure resolution.

Our children are dying every day, and these racist wars against reasoned governance is disgraceful and deferential to a more perfect and safe union. It is time for the American people to get angry and loud. If the Congress has "censure resolution fever" why don't they censor the 47 Senators who have violated the Constitution and betrayed the American people by sending a letter to the Ayatollah of Iran?

Another example that should be censured is Senator Tom Cotton (R) of Arkansas, another former slave-state, who accepted more than a "few pieces of silver" to sell out his country. Cotton collected $2.1 million in campaign support from the pro-Israel lobby. He has also taken almost $2 million from the gun lobby to block sensible gun laws to save our children's lives.
