Take a permanent vacation Congress

So much to do. So so much to do. And Congress still goes home. $174,000 a year. What a waste of friggin money.

Congress Has a Lower Approval Rating Than Fungus

The 113th Congress has been the least productive in the history of the United States. The entire history. And yet when asked about it, John Boehner simply says “We’ve Done Our Work”. Umm…what work is that John. The work of the American People you say? By the way, I just love how politicians all use […]

Rick Santorum is living in the wrong century

How did Rick Santorum get to where he is with the views he holds?? The guy is as bass-ackwards as they come. Here are some of his beauties: “Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we […]
