Succinctly accurate, especially the part at the end when the waiter strolls by. One way to fix this is to force Congressmen to set up their offices in their home district and do most of their business by teleconference. Two weeks out of the year, they will travel to Washington and vote on important matters, like the budget. But all of their main business will be handled from their district office.

You’re right. I’m glad I did. A picture says a thousand words. Thanks.

I would add to your great idea, no law shall run more than 3 pages, double spaced of typing paper. Must be in regular english so all citizens can read and understand the law..

Couldn’t watch the whole thing .... reminds me that I have a few pieces of metal-injection machinery that need their quarterly routine lubrication, maintenance, and functional tolerance clearance check.

That was pretty good!
It was like an audio-visual aid for “comprehensive immigration reform”.

Dear Libloather,

Obviously you missed what actions I listed that were precipitated by watching this vile video.

It is not a comedy.

I back you 100 percent. This concept should be on the agenda of every conservative in Washington. It’s a good place to start cutting the budget considering the money that could be saved on security, travel, housing, etc. There was a movement to decentralize during the Bush years.

It is not meant to be a comedy. However, would you consider watching it, or at least the end only, if I told you it involves a girl? Because it does.

The only reason that I could not watch it, were because the lobbyist and the, harumph, congressman, (I know, they are actors in a role), portray the worst kind of perpetrated treason against the people that they are elected to represent, i.e., corruption, which I detest, to the point of non-PC-but-American-borne vengeance!

I am a victim of The Keating Five, perpetrated by none other than that illustrious senator, John McCain, and associates.
