  •  I honestly think people would consider it: (7+ / 0-)

    Heard somewhere that congressional approval rating was 10% - below any other segment of anything, below bankers etc.

    I actually think that is telling. The problem is most people hate congress but love their congressman. It would be real interesting to have a vote to throw every last one of them out as a whole. If that were an option. . .

    Course, a vote to elect the new ones would quickly be bought up and bring in indistinguishable lackeys.

    How is this for a cynical view on Friday. This country won't turn around till it hits bottom and it doesn't seem it will any time soon.

    Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick: The "party of Jesus" wouldn't invite him to their convention - fearing his "platform."

      below used car dealers--hell, below freaking lawyers!

      Time for a parliamentary system after all. My daughter will start the "Anime Addicts" party.

      And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."

      The problem is they are the ones that make their own rules, that is whyit's such a cushy job. They vote on their own pay, their holidays, and what it would take to get rid of them
