Secret Service for life now a reality. Guns are included.

Glad Congress was able to come together on this and show some leadership. I am also glad us the serfs are going to foot the bill for this and pensions.
The legislation, crafted by Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, rolls back a mid-1990s law that imposed a 10-year limit on Secret Service protection for former presidents. Bush would have been the first former commander in chief affected.

If Congress starts cutting retirement benefits for Americans in general, there is no reason benefits for former Presidents should not be on the table as well. Until then, Presidents turning down Secret Service like Nixon did would be an admirable gesture in support of a balanced budget. However, I won't be holding my breath on that one.
i have no problem with it either the first 10 years. after that, come out of your own pocket.

Good point. Nugent #1 and the Tennessee Volunteer can be #2 on the "crazy" national database.
Nugent said something very similar about killing everyone in sight. Apparently these folks have gone from 'we'll have a revolution' to 'we'll go on mass murder sprees' if they don't get their way.
