I don't think it's a coincidence that so many of the problems in the country occurred after the 28th Amendment was passed and the Congress wrote the Pit of Death out of the Constitution.

But I don't think anyone expected anything less than a generation of Congressmen who have never fought in a war or joined the military or beat up Billy Johnson from 6th Period, every day and repeatedly, and I thanked his mom for Billy's lunch money.

They had the Pit of Death for a reason, and it was that if you came up in front of the Congress and lied out of your teeth or you just generally acted like an asshole, then Tip O'Neill would declare an "emergency resolution", he'd jump over the table and just pound you unconscious.

Primitive humans tended to be significantly more civil because there was always the chance that you would get a rock to the back of the head and we would be done with it.  The Founding Fathers understood this and that is why George Washington, a guy who was willing to die for his country, pushed so hard for the Pit of Death in the first place.

And let me be clear, this is not a Republican or a Democrat thing, there are some pretty bad dudes on both sides, even if the majority are white male Republicans such as Mitch McConnell, who is like the Blue Shell from Mario Kart, but in real-life, as he slams into his alleged political enemies with his hardened chitinous armor.

But now they outlaw the Pit of Death and the Congress claims "violence is not the answer" and they will threaten to censure you and remove you from the Congress if you punch Chuck Grassley in the face for being a doofus.  It didn't used to be this way.  It used to be MUCH BETTER than this.  Much better.

I wish this was a courtroom instead of a Congressional hearing.  Sass a judge like that and he will rain fire down upon you.

They just need to issue the subpoena and hold the motherf*cker in contempt.

Heh reminds me when I was in 7th grade Social Studies. Hated the teacher and she was a total biatch to everyone. One day I'm drawing in my notebook and the teacher says my name and asks a question. Without looking up I said "I don't know. You're the teacher. You tell me!" Entire room went dead silent and I could feel every eye in the classroom look right at me. I knew I had farked up. First and last time I talked back to a teacher.

Mitch McConnell is more like the disappointment you feel when you've been in first place the whole race, then get hit with two blue shells and a red shell on the last corner.

ltnor: Wow. He is playing a stupid game and he is going to win a stupid prize.


Nadler's the Chair, right? Can't he unilaterally extend that 5min for another minute or two? (I seem to recall Grassley doing that in ...the Kavanaugh hearing? after a short argument about who had taken how long to press a point of order about someone else going over time.)

I also recall that the 5min doesn't run out while someone is talking - if a Rep starts asking a question at 4:59.99, the witness is supposed to answer. It's not like Debate Club (or the Oscars, or oral arguments at SCOTUS), where you're no longer allowed to speak after the clock runs out.

Instead of answering, he tells him that his 5 minutes are up.

"I believe your five minutes is up."

The dude tried a tactic that most people figure doesn't work at 10yo. These folks obviously had helicopter parents to bail them out.

Wow.  Faaaarrrrrrrrrrkkkkkk yooooooooou, buddy.

The very best people, indeed.

Is there a "the entire 11 hour testimony given patiently by Ms. Clinton" gif that fits in Fark's size restriction?

On the other hand, this is another example of how the rich are very different from you and I... a poor / darker-than-copy-paper person interacting with a cop/judge this way would take a beating and/or a night in jail.  Maybe there can be just the slightest hope that the masses will wake the _fark_ up and start being aware of the different reality in which The Other Half Live... and start sharpening pitchforks.

You want it to be full of hacks and frauds, well lucky for you your opinion of them was off. They all suck.

Due to the amount of vacancies. It's hard to even find shiatty help in the Trump admin.

Whittaker is the kind of guy who would have sex with your sister and then remind you about it when you eventually marry her.

"Look, I'm here voluntarily...."

yeah farkstick, because out of professional courtesy they didn't subpoena your unconstitutional ass. you don't get to hold that over their heads and not answer questions you don't want to.

You are illegally sitting in that position only because the Senate Republicans have decided to be complicit in Trump's crimes.

Thanks to everyone who filled me in. Don't know why I can't hear the rest of the video.

Anyway, sounds like another spoiled white dude who's gone a long time without facing any consequences. Time to fix that.
