I think that what they have done now may be the most heinous act in the history of the body. The cruelty and evil is almost incomprehensible.

Americans Favor Legalizing Pot and Criminalizing Congress - The New Yorker 
By a huge majority, Americans support laws legalizing marijuana and criminalizing Congress, according to a poll released on Thursday.

While the poll reflects a relaxation of attitudes about recreational pot use, it also suggests that many Americans now view membership in Congress as a problem ravaging the nation.

Harland Dorrinson, an activist who has spent years mobilizing support for the criminalization of Congress, said that “this poll reinforces what many of us have been saying for a long time: Congress destroys lives.”

“I’ve seen productive members of society get involved with Congress and completely lose the will to work,” he said. “They just sit there, totally numb and out of touch with reality.”

He noted that the once prevalent view that membership in Congress was “harmless” is now being discredited. “If you look at what happens to someone’s brain after ten, twenty, or even thirty years in Congress, it’s devastating,” he said. “There is severe impairment.”

Additionally, he warned that Congress is a “gateway elective office” that leads many to try running for President.

Surveys/polls on the functioning of politicians (esp. Congress) suggest otherwise. {#Mrgreen}

Not so much blind as (at times) powerless.{#Devil_pimp}

Neither you or miami were part of the group my comment was directed at, by the way.

I agree with the reasons stated so far to not pass the Cromnibus and there are some other things I object to in it.

The line item veto would do so much to move things along and also for legislators to cast votes and commit to individual issues eliminating the cover that comprehensive bills provide individual legislators on revealing their actual positions.

The other thing needed is term limits.  Both require a constitutional amendment.

Here we go.  Another threatened government shut down.  Damn Tea Party ...

Oh wait, this time its the Democrats led by Senator Warren D, Ma with the support of Pelosi in the House.

So its total BS when the TP tries it, but its OK if the D's try it ?

I had no problem with the last shut down and am not against another, so no hypocrisy on my part. 

So to all you Tea Party haters out there (and there are plenty of you) who spoke up openly and with vitriol against the last shut down, what say you now ? 

.
My guess is nothing ...
