They are lying faster, so they must be planning something
So, the 501c(4) "non-partisan" "non-political" group Organizing for Action, which sounds suspiciously similar to Obama's ex-campaign organization Organizing for America, and which supports Obama's agenda on guns, the environment, and immigration, held a rally in front of a Representative recently:
About 50 people rallied outside U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent's office in South Whitehall Wednesday to urge the congressman to co-sponsor a bill that would strengthen background checks for gun purchases.
The article has a photo of the group, lined up single file holding hands. There are 24 people in the photo, not "about 50".
Walker read a list of names of towns and schools that have become a kind of national shorthand for gun violence -- Columbine, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech. He was momentarily interrupted by Roger Timm, a retired Lutheran pastor from Emmaus, who said his daughter was at the university during the country's deadliest mass shooting on April 16, 2007 and survived.
They used to read the names of victims of gun violence, but I guess getting caught including terrorists and mass murderers in the list of victims was embarrassing.
Walker, who leads the group's gun violence prevention team, said the House bill is similar to the Senate bill co-sponsored by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa).
That would be the bill that failed to pass the Democratic-majority Senate, and that Manchin -- one of the named authors -- recently called a stupid idea.
