2002-03-23 09:25:26 PM  
oh boo-hoo...

Please sirs, your detroying my establishment.
We just created the greatest democracy in the world, you low life commener! *shove*

I am the "common folk" and I'd be pretty pised if I had to eat at a Denny's too!

everyone keeps wondering how our politicians get so out of touch with society...

these silver-spoon-cristal-ivyleague-hamptons mother farkers never were part of society.

id be a politician for free, just to be able to do something about all the bullshiat goin on up there. these farkers think they deserve it.

democracy is dead.

Well what a bunch of idots.....these politicains are fools..
2002-03-23 09:39:06 PM  
This is a repeat, from like 2 days ago.

Who wants to bet they'll vote themselves a payraise over this?

Denny's has a rather well known policy of discrimination. They might not allow those chiselin', hypocritical bastards to eat in their dining establishment. I'd like to give a few of those weasels a "Grand Slam"!

what do they think, they're some kind of royalty?? Just another sign its time for major political house cleaning. Us "commoners" should be the ones making the laws anyway....we stil live in America, right?

Note: If you are not registered to vote, or are registered and don't vote, you have no right to complain. You're a baby seagull, squawking and shi*ting and contributing nothing. Shut your damned noisehole.

There's only one political party in America that wants you keep both your freedom and your money: Libertarian. Support anyone else at your own peril.

Dear Lord... If I acted this spoiled, my mama would give me a good hard smack upside the head. They're not crowned princes, they're senators. The entire point is that they are the common people (supposed to be anyway). Sheesh.

Tro dem bums outta here!

cry me a river.

what's funny is I submitted this story before either of the others, mine gets ignored then it gets posted twice *grumble*
2002-03-23 11:03:47 PM  
I hope Washington state has term limits. I'd hate to think that these losers were on the payroll for life.
2002-03-23 11:05:13 PM  
These guys are sad that they have to eat at Denny's? My little brother's elementary school doesn't even have a farking cafeteria! They have to line up outside the kitchen, get their food, and bring it out in the Seattle rain into their portable classrooms.

And these asshats are whining...
2002-03-23 11:08:15 PM  
wah wah wah, they're friggin public servants! Pussies.
2002-03-23 11:40:23 PM  
Maybe we ought to treat them like the romans treated their senators? Et tu Brute'?
2002-03-23 11:43:15 PM  
poor little babies!
2002-03-23 11:54:03 PM  
Some common folk may stick a common fork into some Wa. senator's head.
Personally I'd rather eat their hearts out with dull spoons.

-facilities committee members are trying to solve the space problem -- but shuttling members to a restaurant isn't on the menu.

Of course they wont be shuttled of to a restaurant, they'll take their private limos and choose their own restaurants dammit.
2002-03-24 12:12:28 AM  
Ah, the sweet irony of farkers whining about their submissions about whiney poiticians not being accepted.
2002-03-24 12:26:20 AM  
This is a repeat? Eh, I've been working too hard and probably just went home and slept...

anyway, THIS is what's wrong with politics in America. They're all spoiled brats who don't have a goddamn clue.

I wish more politicans could be like the ones around here who recently vied for the seat of a County Councilman who was sent to the clink. They held their community meeting at the local college bar. Yup, no hoity toity "suit, ties, and Italian loafers or we won't let you in" action here--they pulled up plastic chairs to cigarette-burned tables, freshly cleaned of spilled cheap beer, and had a pizza with the people they were hoping would choose them to lead.

I say we ought to make it mandatory. Once a month, all politicians must have a meal at a "commoner's" restaurant, randomly chosen by an oversight committee(rule of eligibility: no entree costs over $20), without suit or cell phone.

Too bad it would never happen, because in order to become mandatory it must be law, and our spoiled brats are the law-makers.

What a bunch of crybaby pricks!
2002-03-24 01:05:38 AM  
Personally I would rather my lawmakers be fat and happy on quality food that has been prepared and served to them in a peaceful setting then have them eat a BigMac meal at McD's.

Honestly people, grow up!

senators will temporarily lose their private dining room and French chefs

"This is unacceptable," wrote Sen. Don Benton, a Republican, in a letter signed by
36 of the 49 state senators.

If only these whining pricks could aggree on something that was imporitaint! And Aria, nice one .:)
2002-03-24 03:11:40 AM  
kill them all...
2002-03-24 01:13:59 PM  
Yeah, I'll think real hard about their plight in lacking a private dining room and private french chefs when I'm eating my frozen fish sticks tonight.

Whiny biatches.

This is why I vote Libertarian.
