Profiles in Cowardice

Standard

The last war that the United States declared was WWII.  Since that time the U.S. Congress has abrogated it’s power to advise and consent and declare war.

The Congress would rather criticize the Executive branch than do its duty.  Therefore, we are on the brink of yet another undeclared war in Syria with no imput from the people’s representatives who have through variolus artifices given that very important duty described in Article I, Section 8 to the Executive branch.

Decades have passed without this gutless branch doing its work.  The number of lives lost during those years, the money that has been wasted is incredulous; and yet, here we are today bombing a sovereign nation without a declaration of war.

It’s time for Congress to screw it’d courage to the sticking point and either declare war or withdraw all troops.

The Easiest Political Lie

Standard

When a politician says that people want…, you need to ask which people he is referring to.

Is he referring to all the people (which he is implying)?

Is he referring to the people in his district or state?

OR

Is he referring to his campaign contributors (most likely)?

On what data is he basing his opinion (polls, letters, phone calls, emails)?

If he chooses to follow the people, how does he explain his votes which are contrary to non-partisan polls?

WHY ISN’T THE MEDIA ASKING THESE QUESTIONS?

Hey, Republicans

Standard

When you say “I am not a scientist.”, stop right there. You have just admitted you have no credibility on the subject; we really don’t care what your opinions are.

You’re a member of Congress.

You are a Republican.

We know you don’t believe in facts.

Don’t waste oxygen and increase our carbon dioxide problems by continuing.
