Let The Games Continue

Two stories in the news yesterday pretty much confirmed my suspicions that it would be business as usual despite GOP control of the new Congress.

In the first story, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is reported to have said, the word of Hawaii's officials regarding obama's birth and resultant citizenship status is good enough for him.

Well, it's not good enough for me or a lot of other Americans, John. Is there anyone in a position of influence, with a pair of metallic central dangling extremities, who will force this issue to the surface? Either way the answer may go, we have a right to know the truth... preferably by way of an unimpeachable source. (John Bolton would meet with my approval)

In the second story, it seems that a day and a half worth of discussions and voting by the House, on matters of repealing obamacare, or parts thereof, may be null and void. It appears that two House members who were involved in the discussions and voting, Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) hadn't been officially sworn into office, yet. And Sessions is on the Rules Committee!!!

A request made to minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D & AH-CA), to allow this minor lapse in procedure to be excused, was refused "since there is a matter of the Constitution to be observed here." Now THAT is funny!!! (made me pee myself a little)

Under different circumstances, like in a Cheech & Chong movie, (Harold & Kumar for you younger folks) this would be some really hilarious shit. But here in the real world, why aren't we dressing these people in tar and feathers while we strip them of their titles and benefits?

How much more will we have to take?
