Well..........yeah, Ann. Another example of our Duly Elected Inside the Beltway twits making decisions they think will help them get elected rather than what's good for America. Sort of the "same old.....same old." Makes a good argument for term limits.

Legislation by Panic

"Legislation by Panic" My personal belief, Mona, is that NEARLY ALL legislation is "by panic." Our Duly Elected Inside the Beltway Dolts nearly always: * Get in a panic about "surface issues" per the media panic or interest group panic. * Then permit the interest groups to in effect write legislation. * Pass bills without much regard for the longer term impact on America. They nearly always: * Ignore foreseeable unintended consequences of their decisions. * Support legislation they believe will get them re-elected. * Permit re-election to trump what's best for the country.
I like the notion of "profiling" re: who get to immigrate and who gets work visas and who get student visas. Letting men from Islamic countries into the US is like inviting home invasion gangster to your house for dinner.

I'd like to see: 1. Borders as secure as we can make them, whatever that requires. 2. A legal "guest worker" program as used to be the case. 3. Track the work visas to make sure the "guest workers" actually work and don't over stay their visas.
Question = "Can You Find It in Your Heart to Feel Sympathy for Politicians and their Staff?" Answer = No. It's hard to dredge up empathy for parasites. For example: * I've never known ANYONE who is fond of tapeworms. * Mosquitos aren't very popular either. * And nobody likes ticks. So how can our political parasites expect us to love them? They suck the economic blood from the economy and freedom from the citizens.

Good article Mona, I have great respect for individual responsibility, and for the notion that a person ought to experience the consequences of their own decisions and behavior. Building mansions at a beach near water level, or in a river flood plain, or at the edge of the San Andreas Fault are really bad decisions for which I don't want tax payors to be on the hook. Rebuilding New Oreleans, which lies below sea level, is also a stupid idea because at some future point a similar storm will destroy the city again.
I know it's too much to hope for, but it would be nice if: * We had term limits so politicos WOULD NOT look at a seat in Congress as a lifetime job. * And then it would be a good thing if they voted for what's good for America rather than what's good for their next election.
There's a lot to be said in favor of a "DO NOTHING" Congress. I would certainly consider voting for a Senatorial candidate who promises to : 1. Never write legislation or propose any bills what ever and oppose any bill that contains new spending. That would b my kinda guy.
Weiner is a skinny guy, but otherwise he seems to me to fit the definition of "Pig." They guy's a flat out pig, and NYC people want to elect him Mayor?????? In addition to the descriptive "pig", idiot, twit and dolt would also be suitable when referring to Weiner.
I think America should become a tax haven country. We could do that by dumping the current tax code and installing The Fair Tax plan that taxes consumption, not income. Businesses and investment money would flow to the US, the economy would boom, and jobs wouldn't be a problem
