  •  By the way, maybe I'm missing something, (7+ / 0-)

    but if nearly every American
    hates every single Congressman
    and every single Senator,
    that means
    we have just about zero
    actual Democrats;
    just about zero
    actual Republicans.

    Because a Democrat
    who is truly a Democrat
    would feel that our
    congresscritters
    who are Democrats
    are doing the best they can,
    and the other side
    is simply not accepting
    any reasonable compromise.

    And the other true party members
    would feel the same,
    but switch the parties of the
    congresscritters.

    I think there is a truly insane idea,
    or "meme"
    out there.

    It's similar
    to what folks say
    about some killer in jail:

    "Take him out behind the courthouse,
    and shoot him."

    It rolls off the tongue,
    and everyone nods,
    everyone agrees.

    So,
    likewise,
    folks say:

    "Throw the bums out!"

    I want to slap,
    real hard,
    every single American
    who says either phrase.

    Everyone who says those things,
    needs to get on a ship,
    and drift at sea,
    and get away from folks
    who want to figure out
    actual practical solutions.

    Okay,
    that was harsh,
    but now you know where I stand.

    But what good are my words?

    all is vanity

     16      ¶ I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. 1 Kgs. 4.29-31
    17      And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
    18      For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.  

    Bringing a child into the world at this point in history is a crime, the crime of child endangerment.

    •  The thing on the radio made me laugh. (5+ / 0-)

      Mostly for the following reason:  I have said, out loud in public, that I had offed many a cockroach for being vermin, but I wouldn't kill even one of them for something as trivial as a trip around the world.  This was during an exercise in a course I was in and the instructor (who was a very large man) was looming over me, since I was the lone holdout at that point.  I do not intimidate when I know I'm in the right.

      I, personally, am very pleased with my representative.  There's only been one or two items I've questioned Mr. Blumenauer's judgment on in the past several years.  The shutdown isn't one of them.

      Strength and dignity are her clothing, she rejoices at the days to come; She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.

        sensible view
        of your congresscritter.

        Thanks again.

        •  I guess I can confess (0+ / 0-)

          that I have the same "congresscritter" as loggersbrat, and share her opinion of him. I can say pretty much the same for our two senators, although there are some things Wyden has said and done that I'd like to smack him for.

          What I want to know is, who's going to pay for these crimes against humanity that those b@st@rds are perpetrating against the rest of us?
