1. Such is the reprehensible right.

If only conservatives would work this hard to find creative ways to fund healthcare and education…

And I wonder how they might be affected by recent SCOTUS ruling sort of on asset forfeiture — returned heroin dealer's SUV based on Constitutional "excessive fines" prohibition.
