    Default Senate, what a joke...

    I'm watching/listening to CSPAN II covering the Senate... What a farce... The House has 434 members and can conduct a "vote" in 5 minutes using "electronic devices"... The fucking dysfunctional Senate has less than 100 members and still conducts votes using a roll call... A clerk has to call each Senators name, and record how they voted..... Then the clerk has to catch the late arriving Senators and ask each of them how they vote.... Why can't the Senate install the same "electronic devices" the House uses??? Why can't these lazy bastards be on time? Maybe a change in voting procedures that says they only need a simple majority of the Senators that are there when the vote is called, and once the vote is taken, it's over..... No do overs..... This Reid led Senate has had more Quorum calls that any other Senate body in history....

    There are few people that I have extreme hate toward and Reid is one of them. Sure has been quiet on the gun stuff though hasn't he. Doesn't want to lose the NRA rating. Will be interesting to watch him get squeezed on this issue and fall like a dead tree.

    Default Repubs speaking out...

    With all this manufactured hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" more and more Republican Senators are coming out and bashing Reid and his flat refusal to bring any House bills to the Senate floor. The House PASSED two bills last summer that would have eliminated this fiscal cliff nonsense, and ol' senile Harry put them in the round circular file, never allowing the Senate to even start a debate, add or delete items, or just open a line of discussion. Reid is a idiot. He sees himself as a God to the Senate, quite like Hitler saw himself to the Nazi party in pre war Germany. The man is dangerous to our Country, a Country that can not survive with 1/2 of Congress totally dysfunctional.... Maybe ol Harry is still pissed because the Speaker of the HOUSE is still third in line for the Presidency, and 4th in line is the duly elected "President" of the Senate, NOT the majority leader, thank goodness..... I've been chanel surfing the various news stations and more and more of the "guests" on those channels are bringing the liberals to task for all the staling tactics, the Presidents out and out refusal to commit any tax increases to the deficit instead of additional gov't spending for their pet projects, (read campaign paybacks), AND now realizing the 2% MAY just take their ball and leave the playing field.... 100% of nothing, is still nothing, regardless of how obama does the math.... (I went to LA City schools, but even I can figure that one out....)....
    Bottom line, obama wants to "go over the cliff" so all the efforts in the world by those that don't won't accomplish anything..... I say just wait until his boney ass gets shoved up against the "Debt Ceiling" and see if talking out the side of his neck gets him anywhere then?.... Talk about the RIGHT having obama's balls in a jar, the shits gonna hit the fan, and I'll bet ol senile Harry will be ducking for cover.....obama can duck, be he can't hide. All the while Harry just plays stupid, a role he is a natural for....

    Sounds like she took a page out of pole smoker Barney's play book.

    No because it's still Bush's fault!
