mrshowrules: Make a movement "Who agree's that the Bill should not pass?".

I'm torn between high-fiving your idea and beating you with Sumner's Cane for apostrophe abuse.

I want more callers.

But they need to talk about what's going on right now.

Host: "What is your take on what you're seeing"
Caller: "WTF is this shiat? Why aren't they wearing wigs?"

Recognition of the Agribusiness Teams of the National Guard?...And a couple of Republicans voted against it? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

shower_in_my_socks: What was the disturbance? I had the usual talking-heads-yelling-at-each-other nonsense on CNN and missed it.

It was the Rapture. Don't worry, no Congressmen were affected.

madmann: lerry: Question.

If the republicans get hold of the house and senate this November and attempt to repeal this, does the repeal still require Obama's signature?

Not necessarily.

They could get 67 votes in the Senate and 290 in the house.

BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA, can't believe I typed that with a straight face.

/I "could" have a 3-way with Kate Beckinsale and Scarlett Johannsen.


You could, if you don't mind my sloppy seconds.

bushbot111: It's easy to support this bill when someone else is paying for it. Completely irresponsible, but easy.

It's easy to scream NOT WITH MAH TAXES when you think you're entitled to those 2.5 potholes you fixed with the sum of your income tax.

Not yet. I haven't bought a gun.

This is the problem with the coming civil war -- the wrong side has all the guns.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) came to the defense of the racists and bigots who shouted slurs at members of Congress Saturday. The Tea Party protesters shouted the "N" word at African American members of Congress the "F" word at an openly gay member.

Rather than condemn the anachronistic behavior, Nunes blamed the Democrats, saying that they make people do and say crazy things with their tyrannical behavior.

"When you use a totalitarian tactics, people, you know, begin to act crazy, Nunes told C-SPAN Steve Scully Sunday morning when asked about the slurs. ..."I think that people have every right to say what they want. If they want to smear someone they can do it.

Nunes claimed that Democrats were using the racist behavior of health care protesters to distract from the vote itself.

The Agribusiness Teams of the National Guard is NOWHERE to be found in the Constitution.

culebra: Now we're voting to approve journals. What is this, Sweet Valley High?

I believe that was just a cloture vote on the journal approval debate. Also, they haven't decided on Chinese or Mexican food for dinner.

1 minute speeches. Look out for spittle!

retarded: Fjornir: Parliamentary inquiry: Why did you keep a 5 minute vote open for 5:15?

NUNYA


In fairness, that's entirely different than 10 extra minutes. Way to take it to the extreme, though.

It's kinda like when you show up for work a little late. 5 minutes, not a problem. 15? yeah, you should probably call.

"A uniquely American solution to health care reform."

Throw money at the insurance companies and beg them to cover us more?

I agree. Maybe we can finally get rid of Texas.

C-SPAN must've realized that today is not the day to take calls from the general public and are now resorting to SportsCenter-style highlight packages during lulls.

/BOOYAH!
 
2010-03-21 02:06:35 PM  
I'm going to call in to CSPAN and voice my opposition to recognizing the National Guard for socializing agriculture.

Brian Beutler reports: After a protester is removed from the House gallery for shouting "Kill the bill," Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) tells reporters: "I've never seen members of the House cheering on a guy resisting being kicked out of the gallery. It's a dangerous situation and the Republicans are cheering him on." Some Republicans were reportedly applauding anti-reform protesters.

I guess that's what happened earlier.

Yes, because government-run health care is just like fixing potholes. *facepalm*

Yeah, pretty much. "Uniquely American" is pretty cool when it comes to a lot of things. But for anything involving social programs, we have to start recognizing it for the insult it is.

Oh yeah... shiat, Austin is going to be a hell of a lot like the Alamo when that happens.

And it will probably end the same way.

The freedom to be free of health care insurance may be what she's talking about, but I don't know of anyone who wants that freedom.

Freedom 'died' back when we voted in favor of the Patriot act. the rest has merely been inertia.
