Asking if Congress deserves a vacation is like waking up and smoking a joint to decide if you want to smoke a joint. Shouldn't they have to do some work first? At least occasionally? In the never ending run for the White House, how many votes have McCain and Obama missed while they were running for another office because the one they're in isn't good enough? And please, using the example that the Demowienies don't want to cave in to the Republicans is foolish since there are more than enough examples to go around. Fortunately 472 of them are up for reelection this year, maybe they'll get a surprise at the polls.
Things are getting better all the time. Pretty soon the only people employed in America will be those who provide personal luxury services to our overlords.
The police are sticking with their story that the kid with the broken back and foot tried to get up and walk into traffic so that's why they had to taser him 19 times. Do they drug test cops? Because if they don't, they should. On a daily basis. Especially hallucinogens.
Hmm, I see the cojone missing stormtroopers have struck again. What possible excuse (other than revenge) could there be for placing a compromising package (you know they did it), bursting into the mayor's home and then shooting his two Labrador Retrievers, one of whom was hunted while running away, to death? No arrests were made.
I joined the Army in 1974 and I can honestly say that other than a few bawdy jokes (that I enjoyed because they were funny) and the occasional "accidental" brush against my tits, only one person ever harassed me and he ended up at Leavenworth doing hard time for a few years. Hhis conviction ostensibly had nothing to do with me since my First Sergeant wouldn't take me seriously, but I knew something else that caused his incarceration and had no hesitation about making sure the MPs found out about it. Other than that, my troop mates were my friends and they treated me just like the other guys. Now it seems that a woman serving in the military is as likely to be assaulted by the people who are supposed to be watching her back as she is to be killed or wounded by a terrorist. I thought it was supposed to be you were more likely to be killed by a terrorist as to get married after forty? Methinks that order in the military isn't what it used to be.
