The Comrade Morphine wrote: "This Worst Congress Ever (Republican) has done nothing..." That would be about the best I can expect from Congress. The US Constitution was passed in 1787. Congress has been passing "laws" and doing "things" for some 223 years since then. Really...how many more laws do we need? Virtually (as opposed to Biden's overuse of the word 'literally') every time Congress "does something", we lose a bit more liberty, a bit more treasury, or more likely, BOTH. A good Congress does nothing. A better Congress would start rolling back all of the unconstitutional "responsibilities" that the Feds have usurped since Progressivism began.

When the Constitution was written the Founders envisioned "Senator" and "Congressman" to be part-time, short-term, temporary duties for which patriotic citizens sacrificed their valuable time.

The Founders felt that "Congress" would be so part-time that they included a provision in Article I that Congress would be required to meet at least twice a year. Congress was not intended to an full-time, ongoing career for hundreds who would write massive volumes of laws that few understand, including themselves.

Only a liberal, by definition, thinks we can't function as a society or as an economy without Congress meddling in our business every day.

One thing more.

Like the true libbie that he is, Morphine thinks it is just fine that the DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED Congresses of 2009 and 2010 never even produced budgets as is required by the Constitution, but Congress didn't become a "do-nothing" Congress until the GOP regained control of the House.

Please note, Comrade Morphine, that the GOP House has at least passed budgets and sent them to the Senate, where Harry Reid has buried them under a pile of horse manure instead of acting on them, bringing them to the Senate floor for debate, and working out compromises so the federal government would have a budget and comply with the Constitution.

Which brings us back around to the fact that Progressives hate the Constitution as it inhibits their need to control every minute aspect of everyone else's lives. What a loathsome bunch.

Amen....

Whenever I hear a politician whine about a "do-nothing Congress", I say a prayer of thanks.

The sooner and the faster we reduce our emissions, the smaller the peak CO2 level will be and the sooner the atmospheric CO2 concentration will return to levels that make for a climate friendly to humanity.

Dear Comrade No. 3370,

There are processes that will “ever so slowly” remove CO2, and...
