If Only In America!

By now everybody with a half brain knows that our Congress is about as worthless as tits on a boar.  Their approval rating is damn near zero and in some circles it is zero……and with that bad news for them….they change nothing….they keep playing the same game they have been playing for over 5 years….my opinion and yours means NOTHING to them.

The only way we can change this is by voting them out of office and guess what….we are not capable of doing that!  We have had numerous elections for the voter to change things and we just cannot bring ourselves to do that one simple task….replace the spineless Congress and try to start over…..it is beyond SAD!

The news of the day is that France president Hollande has basically thrown the present government out of office……..ahhhhh now there is a choice we could use….

France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls presented the resignation of his government to the president on Monday, Francois Hollande’s office said in a statement.

The statement said a new government would be formed on Tuesday in line with the “direction he (the president) has defined for our country.”

Valls’ resignation gives him Hollande,  the power to set up a new cabinet.

Now there is an idea whose time has come in America.  There is something to be said for the parliamentary style of governance.

Since the voter cannot work up enough courage to do the right thing….then take it out of their hands….dissolve Congress and tell the voter to try again……I know it sounds a bit harsh but something has got to give for this country to move forward….if not we will be stuck in this cycle of stupid.

America can NO longer wait for the perfect statesman….we need action and we need it NOW!

Should We Go Or Should We Stay?

I can hear the tune by the Clash playing in my head…love Combat rock!  But in this case I am referring to our return to action in Iraq…….there are lots of opinions on the Hill….some pro, some con…..

There is a growing cause that we should let the prez handle this in his way……Congress is waiting and watching….

The bipartisan consensus emerging among leadership on the Hill is that the President has leeway to act in Iraq as long as the mission remains narrowly defined.

It’s a hands-off approach that has afforded the White House a bit more flexibility when it comes to making strategic decisions. On Monday, the administration announced that it would be sending an additional 200 troops to Baghdad to protect the airport and American Embassy there. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told The Huffington Post that the administration continued to believe that it did not need a new congressional authorization even in light of that new troop movement.

That a little piece was reported in the HufPo.  But is it up to the prez to make that decision?  Well, if the truth be known….it is NOT up to him to make that decision…….

As the US debates its future in Iraq, all eyes are on President Obama—but where we should be looking is Capitol Hill. Yes, congressional leaders recently said Obama needed no new authorization for further military action in Iraq. “But they’re wrong,” writes Rachel Maddow in the Washington Post. The Founding Fathers gave “the responsibility for war and peace to the clamorous Congress.” The War Powers Act puts power in Obama’s hands for 60 days; after that, it’s up to lawmakers to decide whether to authorize additional troops.

The Constitution puts Congress in charge “so that decisions about war and peace would be made not on one person’s say-so but only after vigorous national debate,” and we need that debate on Iraq. There is a precedent here: A year and a half after the US departure from Vietnam, North Vietnam planned a new offensive, and President Ford sought $700 million “to stabilize the military situation.” Lawmakers’ views on the matter were clear: “Congress knew that it was in its power to say no, and it said no. There would be no second coming of America’s war in Vietnam.” Click for Maddow’s full piece.

So which is it?  Keep in mind that an election is only months away and the biggie in 2016….so of course the Congress wants someone else to make that decision so they cannot be held responsible when the next election rolls around……

As I have said before…..my opinion is watch but stay out……the region will sort this out without our interference….we may not like it but it is their region to control….any action by the US will only make more enemies…..something this country does NOT need.

With that said….I may be a dreamer…..in the end the US may have no other choice but to act.  It is going to be a balancing act something the US has NEVER been any good at doing.

Time For A Much Deserved Holiday

Yep the title was intended to be sarcastic.

Can you believe that Congress is going to take a 5 week break?  Break?  From what?  It will give the American people a holiday from their babbling and lying….about the only positive thing I can say about the parasites.

I guess it is fairly tiring running from one TV interview to another…..that has got to be it for if they are the most useless unproductive Congress that this country has ever had in its history.

They, the Congress, has delayed their much needed hiatus to work on important issues….HA HA HA sorry I could not write that with a straight face……

Newser) – The House today abandoned a vote on $659 million legislation to address the immigration crisis after another Tea Party revolt. John Boehner pulled the measure from the floor at the last minute, knowing he didn’t have enough votes. The speaker, however, then took the unusual step of delaying Congress’ summer recess, which had been scheduled to begin tomorrow. House Republicans agreed to meet again in the morning to see if they could find a bill that could pass. And all of this transpired on day one for Boehner’s new leadership team, sans Eric Cantor.

Conservatives such as Ted Cruz balked at the House plan because they say it didn’t deal with the problem of kids from Central America showing up at the border, reports the Washington Post. They’re also reluctant to give President Obama any money for a problem they believed to be of his own making. Politico‘s take: “The political impact of this decision is not clear, but if the House doesn’t vote, Democrats will be able to say that the GOP left Washington for an entire month without passing legislation to address the influx of migrants.” (Click for more on Cantor’s final address to the House.)

Still they have done NOTHING that would warrant them deserving a 5 week vacation and even less to  benefit the people…….they need five weeks to go back to their districts and prostitute themselves for favors from the special interests….hopefully they packed their knee pads and mouth wash……

When will the country wake up and give these toads their walking papers?

Time For Congress To Sack Up!

Opinion from the desk of the Editor

It is NO secret that I think that most of Congress is a bunch of lying cowards….for one the “pro-life” tag…….these cretins are no more pro life than I am a Mother Superior and they are COWARDS because of the latest Gaza War…..they all have an opinion based on nothing more than hand picked info for their little pressers…….if they want to have an opinion then try going on a fact finding mission to the region….I am not talking about the vacations they usually have…..but a real fact finding mission.

The blind OBEDIENCE to Israel is a sure sign of COWARDICE.  Not one of them has any first hand knowledge all they have is a big mouth,  and as I have witnessed over the years,  a sure sign of cowardice……these people, if I may use that extremely subjective term, operate on all levels without first hand knowledge.

Then we have the morons that like to cite historical references….like the cowardly moron, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IN)…,..he recently made a complete ass of himself and showe just how ignorant these people are………

“Hamas is like Nazis,” Kirk told Fox 32 after speaking at a pro-Israel rally in Chicago. “The more Nazis you got, the more Hamas you get, the more death you get.

“The only way to secure peace in the Middle East is to wipe out those who would bring terror to the Middle East,” Kirk added.

Kirk, a friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, estimated fighting in Gaza could last a couple more months. The Associated Press has reported that 1,000 Palestinians, 53 Israeli soldiers and three Israeli civilians have been killed in the fighting so far.

First of all, good work as an leader of the free world……he is an idiot!  And then there is the Nazi analogy……is he referring to the group that made war on a people without a standing army, or maybe he is referring to the placing of people in Ghettos or camps…..is it possible that this bozo has NO idea what being a Nazi means?………would that be what he is talking about?  If so, then this coward has shown that he has zero knowledge of history…..and just posturing for the cameras.
Congress then did what cowards do…….duck and run…….after all there is an election in a couple of months and cash will be needed……….as reported by Jason Ditz for AntiWar.com…….
Efforts to negotiate a ceasefire in Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip aren’t sitting well with Israeli hawks, and by extension that means they aren’t sitting well with the US Congress.
That’s got Congressional officials up in arms, pushing President Obama to stop trying to negotiate a ceasefire in the conflict, and instead to endorse Israel’s war unconditionally, and irrespective of how bad it gets.
All this just illustrates that Congress is cowardly and not capable of standing up for anything that they are not told to………I do despise a COWARD and Washington seems to be full of them.  They disregard any info that does not fit in the narrative that their handlers want…….NOTHING more disgusting than a spineless politician!

America prepares to reelect the Congress it loathes – The Washington Post

I saw this article awhile back and made me stop and think about the upcoming election……it is true….we hate Congress but most will be re-elected…..where is the logic in that?  What is it that Einstein had to say about insanity?

If you cannot see the stupidity in this then you are the perfect person to sign up for the new Palin Channel………
