    Default Cspan, ii, iii

    Although many here believe my views are crafted by too much FOX news, they would be wrong. I have been listening to, watching the actual Senate, and House hearings, short, and long speeches, the nuts and bolts of the various bills brought to the floors of our elected representatives.. Over and over I have heard the right, and of course the left, propose their "Amendments" to the various bills... It is really pitiful. Our legislative branches are truly dysfunctional... The Senate, in a 10 hour day will have no less than 12-15 "Quorum" calls because there is no one there!!! Where are these people? They were elected, and are PAID to do the people's business, and trust me, they aint doing it... Listening to the rare appearance of Barney Frank is like watching a silent film comedy. His mouth moves, but he never says anything... Senile Harry is even worse, and that idiot is the Majority Leader... However, those speaking from the right continue to try to do the people's business, passing bill after bill in the House with the Majority, only to have those same bills die in Senate because Harry doesn't like them, and refuses to even bring them to a vote in Senate.... All news media outlets aside, if you really want to know what is, and isn't, going on in DC, take the time to watch/listen to those C SPAN stations that have ZERO spin and hear it right from the horse's mouth....

    PS I listen while I work in the shop in Bullhead. It's a lot more informative than any news station...

I have seen dems interviewed that said they would vote yes on some of the bills the house has passed and that is exactly why Reid won't let themon the floor. He knows they will pass.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    Just a little addition to your correct statement...Although, there might be something to the idea that Romney can garner the Nationwide Mormon vote in the general election... As always mentioned, ANY BODY but obama...Even an Irish Setter...

    Default Big part of the problem...

    I went to the C SPAN stations today for my daily aggravation fix....NO ONE IS THERE!!! They all went home LAST NIGHT..... Here we have all these "Must pass now" bills circulating, and these asshats left last night..... The GOP controlled House has PASSED numerous bills and sent them to the dysfunctional Senate. May as well have sent them straight to the nearest landfill...... Then obama gets up and says it's the GOP holding everything up.... What a bold faced LIAR... He is on the constant campaign trail, the "hell no, we won't even consider voting" Senate went home, and the house was a ghost town when the Country is on the brink of total failure... We really need a Citizens Patrol to ride herd over these assholes and keep them working, not to mention meeting in the middle of hundreds of issues that need to be dealt with.... Watch C SPAN and you'll see where the "Boondoggle" really is, no spin, just the facts as seen on LIVE TV.....
