Buh-Bye, Folks
The Washington Times ^ | July 26 2010 | Jennifer Harper

(Fifth item) "The lifting gets lighter when you drop the ball. Congress is about to adjourn for a six-week summer recess — the longest in memory. This despite the fact that Democrats have completely failed to address Americans' worries about the economy, unemployment, reckless spending, skyrocketing debt, job-killing tax hikes, rising health care costs, endless bailouts, and Washington's obstruction of private sector success," says the Republican Study Committee.

They have solved my worries for 6 weeks at least. Too bad they will be back.

Hey, you folks just take the rest of the year off, OK? It’s be the best expenditure of tax money yet during this sorry excuse of an administration.

Will be interesting to see how they spend their six weeks away. They admittedly will have to go some to catch up with the Obama’s tastes in vacation spots and accomodations.

If there was one thing I would have liked them to have done (certainly not “accomplished”) was to write the budget, but the cowards know that the monstrous budget numbers that will appear soon after the election would have served Conservative candidates well over the next 3 months.

Six weeks. That will put them at the Second week of September. That is about 7 weeks before the election.

Little bammy's crew will be in an absolute panic. On one hand there is the demand from Fearless Reader to pass the communist agenda legislation, on the other hand the communists up for reelection want to keep their jobs.

This is all part of a bigger plan for MaObama to make several key recess appointments, sort of like the recent Medicare/Medicaid Rationing Czar.

They have found the secret to really getting their agenda in place without much of a threat from the Public. Besides, they have managed to permanently change this country in just 18 months and it exceeds all other legislation created since we became a nation, combined.

6 Weeks off will not make a pissant’s hair of difference. The damage is way beyond repair now.

Their idea of “work” is figuring out more ways to spend our money. They need six weeks of daily “spendaholics” counselling with counsellors appointed by Tea Partiers.

“make several key recess appointments”

True and there’s always the One’s Executive Order pen.

However, you need a pep talk.

Keep this in mind - it is still the truth that truth will set you free. Someone somewhere is going to find out who our paperless leader is, where he was born and what he’s really done in his lifetime prior to arriving in Washington D.C. to embark on his mission to destruction.

When the truth comes out, it will be undeniable that we have a fraud and a usurper in the presidency. The truth will be like a lifeline to the American people who desperately want to stop this man from taking away their way of life and the future of their children.

Millions will grab that line and then millions more will do the same. The numbers will swell till they cannot be ignored. They will demand standing and they will get it. BO will be removed from office - nullified - and so will every un-American act he has committed. His enablers and those he has enabled will go with him.

You may not believe this now, but do me a favor, will you? When that line gets thrown out, grab onto it and don’t let go. Tell your family, you friends and everyone you know to do the same. Meanwhile, don’t give up and remember - you’re an American and Americans don’t quit!

Congress should go back to being a very part-time legislature and of course with part-time status, cut their pay down to size as well. Rest of the time they can work like the rest of us !

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

What if six million patriotic Americans showed up in Washington and occupied every access to our government buildings, making it impossible for these traitorous representatives to get into their offices and Capitol?

What if another 3 million showed up in New York City on the doorsteps of the Marxist mainstream media and DEMANDED that these traitorous co-conspirators fairly REPORTED the occupation?

Hmmm... How about having a manure spreader show up at every speech given by incumbent congressmen? Or, someone handing out brochures from retirement homes?

Yes, get a couple hundred thousand protesters and simply surround the capital building. Sit-in, not violent protests. Have people rotate in and out when they can. Just keep the bastards out of the building. Also, see if the GOP will join in.

There is a good chance Obama will lock the doors of Congress due to martial law. He has a big bang planned. We will have to see just what it is.

But the big bangs can come from one of 4 or 5 different directions or all at once. Which one will ripen first?

Congress is about to adjourn for a six-week summer recess — the longest in memory.

In a by gone era before A/C Congress took the entire summer off ... somehow this country survived their absence ... we should be so lucky.

A significant reform proposal: Congress shall not be in session for over 180 calendar days in any calendar year.

Those who serve in Congress shall be afforded weekly trips to their home district, shall reside in taxpayer-funded dormitories while Congress is in session and be transported by taxpayer-paid busses to-and-from daily sessions.

I could do without the second paragraph, so long as the first one was in force.
