As usual, it is the local population that must stand up and fight tyranny at the state and federal level. Sheriffs in New York state are not hiding the fact they will not be enforcing state law restricting firearm magazine capacity to seven rounds.
New York’s liberal governor, Andrew Cuomo (D) has tucked in a budget provision that would make tax credits available to a live-audience TV talk show that pretty much mirrors what NBC’s “The Tonight Show” would look like if it moved back to New York City.

Democrats in Congress usually have a “thing” for privacy rights. Listening in on international phone-calls were one end of the conversation is a known or suspected terrorist? That’s bad. However, not all such intrusions are equal.

That, it would appear, is hunky-dory to the high mavens of privacy rights and civil liberties, death threats and hate-speech concerns notwithstanding.
Update (Jim): I would say its unusual when Dave and Chris Matthews actually agree on something.
