They laugh about their constituents a lot behind closed doors. So there is that. Oh and they all are still adding to the debt.

While I believe the benevolent dictator is the most effective ruler, it's not realistic of sustainable so can't be allowed to happen.

Well for the first 24 months it was the republicans.
What are you saying? They didnt do anything?

Actually it seems that y'all think they are not doing anything when in fact they are and have been all along.

Yes, this is exactly what I'm saying!

Talking about it ain't cutting it. Looking at it, ain't cutting it either. What are they doing to benefit the American public...actually getting DONE?

I don't care if they "looked" at 50,000 bills! Looking at something doesn't mean SQUAT!

How many of them did they put forth, without a bunch of partisan BS and pork in them, and actually get passed which had significant benefit to the American people???

According to my mom and stepfather (a 94 year old veteran) Trump has done incredible things for the VA medical system- and they should know since they are back and forth to the VA in Houston extremely often. Because of the changes they have come to love and appreciate Trump and his devotion to bettering the lives of our veterans.

I looked it up. They've passed 20 bills.

In previous congresses they averaged 300 to 400 by this time.

Well they figured out what a garbage disposal is. Or at least one of them has figured it out.

Nope, nothing at all. They all need to be voted out, but guess what? People will happily and consciously reelect the majority of them in 2020 and 2022.

Yeah, ok silly, whatever you say. LOL

I guess you’re unaware of the The House and Senate Intelligence Committee’s? Are they not part of congress? Did they not initiate their own probes? I assume you didn’t know there were three investigations going?

Congress hasn't done anything since before 2009 hence the name do nothing Congress.

Senate is no better and maybe worse.

This is not exactly new, politicians have been career parasites for decades now. Yet people are still wondering why nothing changes...

A member of the “other side” is a freshman congressman and a friend of mine. He said if you really want to punish someone, make them listen to the majority for a few days. I will be surprised if he runs for another term.

Yeah. Yeah, it actually is a pretty big deal Silly. Are you aware that you have specific reception sites in your cells that receive cannabinoid molecules such as CBD, a fully hemp-derived product? That for the past half century these molecules have been criminalized to such a degree that people go to prison for mere possession of them? Think about that: a molecule that your body produces naturally, that if you're caught at the airport with, you go to prison. Yes, the legalization of hemp is a HUGE deal. It's the beginning of the end of the drug war, Silly. It's the beginning of the end of the opioid crisis, Silly. It means there is a safe, LEGAL, substitute to the pain management strategies presently in place which lead to opioid addiction and worse. It means American farmers can once again cultivate a product that has been in use since agriculture was invented. NOTHING grows as heartily as hemp, when it comes to variability of soil conditions, etc... The fibers of the plant can be manufactured into clothing, paper, building materials, you name it. And for the last half-century it's been illegal because certain strains of it can make you feel good when you smoke it. Can't have that... people feeling good.

But I know you know all this already Silly. I know that it's a major problem that a REPUBLICAN President signed into law the first common sense measure to combat this ridiculous war on drugs. Let me ask you this, as a hypothetical:

Say Trump gets reelected, and as a bipartisan measure his Attorney General, Bill Barr, instructs the Surgeon General to reevaluate the scheduling of cannabis. Would you support such a measure? As a schedule I controlled substance THC must have no medicinal value. We've already seen that there are medicinal uses for pot. Would you support President Donald J. Trump in his effort to get marijuana reclassified? As in no longer regarded as harmful as heroine or methamphetamine? Sure hope so.

It's all a show. These are the last days my friend. They turned government into one big reality show to distract the people while those deep final moves are made behind the scenes ...
