Coke Party, Pepsi Party

So the Republicans voted down a bunch of gun control bills yesterday, protecting our freedom.  And then put forward a massive new spying bill to, err, [redacted] our freedom:
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set up a vote late on Monday to expand the Federal Bureau of Investigation's authority to use a secretive surveillance order without a warrant to include email metadata and some browsing history information. 
The move, made via an amendment to a criminal justice appropriations bill, is an effort by Senate Republicans to respond to last week's mass shooting in an Orlando nightclub after a series of measures to restrict guns offered by both parties failed on Monday.
"[Redacted] freedom.  Because Terrorism!"  Choose the form of your Destructor.

It doesn't matter if it's the Left or Right boot on your neck. Same stinking carrion bird in between!
