Article One and Stunts

I am way over the lifers in congress calling what they do "serving their country". They live to server themselves and keep their cushy jobs with all of the perks as long as they possibly can, by whatever means they can (there are exceptions). However I do see a strategy. The law suit can and will energize some of the GOP's base in November. But after that, if they don't utilize the power of the purse to stop the lawlessness of this president, our representatives need to be relentlessly flooded with complaints in the form of emails, letter and phone calls - endless communication of disgust form all of us.
"We will always have extremes" That's true, but your comparison is flawed.. MSNBC to the far left. CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC to the left, and FOX News slightly to the right would be more accurate. Reality is lopsidedly left leaning. .
Exactly, Just don't dot it!!!!!!! Or go to the store and buy a box of condoms.

The Rudeness of Registries

I'm not sure here why he thinks the registry must be utilized by the gift giver. People can still buy what they want to buy to give as a gift without even looking at any list. I buy what I want to give as a gift - but sometime I use the registry to get ideas.
I know this "congress sucks, but my congressman is pretty good" attitude has got to stop. Those who are making a career in congress only serve themselves and have to go. The job was not intended as a career. Half of the issue is that many congressmen and women are self-focused and or incompetent, and half is that they do nothing substantial or definitive to uphold the constitution, stopping dead in their tracks, other "leaders" who ignore it and our rights. Tell YOUR congressmen or women to stop giving away our rights as US citizens, and to stop giving away our money for the votes they want to secure to keep their cushy jobs!
I wouldn't argue against your point at all except to say that average citizens are the best for congressional positions. Also that more often than not they are, and need to be, the brightest. Being responsible, love of country as well as their particular state and its people, fear of God, and respect for those who gave all defending our home are extremely important traits to me as well. The point I was making is that positions in congress are not intended to be careers to where the only job being done is working toward getting re-elected at any cost. Serve (actual service, not lip service) and then go home should be their motto.
Dave Brat is not "a little-known tea party challenger" from all that I've read, although the local tea party group(s) prefer him to Cantor. We're all tired of lifers in the congress getting recognition and preferential treatment for "serving". People "serve" in the military. The only people congressmen and women serve if they stay more than three to four terms is themselves. Congress was designed to give the best and the brightest an opportunity to give back to their country for all they've gotten from our beloved U.S. of A. then go back home to retire, or back to their family, or back to their vocation - not a cushy position for life.
Absolutely correct! Things have to change. And Eric can go get a real job. 2 terms is enough - running for an eighth is ridiculous. It drives me nuts when people say things like "I served in congress for 22 years". If you're in that long you're only serving yourself. They should say "I've had my cushy well paying job with great perks in congress for 22 years".
God has communicated to us through the Bible "Thou shall not kill" and "I knew you before you were in your mother's womb". He did not however communicate "thou shall not kill unless of course you had unprotected sex and a baby is inconvenient at this point in time" or "I knew you from the point you transformed from fetal tissue to a child inside your mother's womb - which is different in each individual case dependent upon your personal feelings or personal interpretation" in the Bible.
More feel good stuff. $2.50 minimum wage would be good if bread and milk cost a quarter, gas was at 50 cents per gallon..... Prices will go up and the wage increase will be meaningless - what a joke.
