  • That might be what "We the People" need to do in Congress!

  • I think it would be far more entertaining ~ and worth seeing/hearing ~ than anything else they've done the past two years. For that matter, it might be far more productive :-(

  • Probably not...but watch for rioting in the streets by unions like in Europe when California, Illinois and New York go in to bankruptcy and have to renegotiate all the public employee union contracts.

  • This happened last week in S. Korean too. I don't think so. As "uncivilized" as we seem sometimes, our Congress does have a sense of decorum. It has happened though on a small scale. One of the Congressmen of the past, Henry Clay or Stevens, hit someone with a cane on the chamber floor. Who did that?

  • LOL! Farmlady, you are so right!

    And goodwitch, that does sound promising… :o) But unfortunately, we can't do that, because the progressives would just love to invoke Martial Law and then we'd really be up the creek, without a paddle… :(

  • Probably. Heck, you have so many people already in the mode ME VS. THEM. Our country is so split apart right now with wild fear mongering. We can't even come together for the better of our country. Sad really.

  • well considering that most of the congressmen are older than the hills, i doubt it, but it could i suppose.
