Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us).

Going to their heads?

As Rush says, lions do as lions do.  They can’t help themselves – it is ingrained. Well, certain politicians are the same way – they are what they are.  Rep. John Conyers is such a creature in that he, along with others, are just going to do hearing after hearing about all things politics. This …
