Gas now above $4.00 per USFRN.....

Where is Congress? Shouldn't they be in W.D.C.? 1. Crisis in the Mid. East. 2. Falling Dollar. 3. Failing foreign policy & inept Executive Branch. 4. Flooding Mid. West. 5. Unresolved Hurricane Katrina (2004) Crisis. 6. Sky rocketing Gas Prices. 7. Unresolved 9/11 investigation questions. 8. Energy Sumit w/ Cheney...still not on the "public record". 9. "gonna smoke em' out" Sadom Husain, still on the run. 10. Air line industry in ruins...transportation infrastructure crisis. 11. 50,000,000 without health care crisis. 12. Missing nuke. 13. Torture @ Guantonimo. 14. Caging lists / Election Fraud. 15. Male prostitute in the White House (Jeff Gannon) multiple times and in the Press Corpse audience and asking questions.

I had to stop at 15 due to vomiting.

Are you finally figuring out that the government is no longer of,by,and for the people?Pelosi is one of the most liberal dems out there yet look at what she's doing.She blocks impeachment,she rams bushs immunity for the telecoms thru the house.Why?Listen to the crap she gives to answer.Immpeachment would be to terrible for the american people at this time?Yeah might better leave him alone to commit more crimes.Gas prices are a result of devaluing the dollar yet
how many congressmen do you hear saying get rid of the fed?The dems are big on the healthcare issue but how will they pay for it?Pretty easy really,they'll get the fed to print more money.Until all elected officals are held accountable to thier oaths to the constitution and start living under the rule of law again don't look for problems to be solved they'll only be created.Why?Because there's money to be made and power to be had.

Let's see what Congress did last week.

This week, the House passed the Captive Primate Safety Act, which "Amends the Lacey Act Amendments of 1981 to add nonhuman primates (i.e., monkeys, great apes, lemurs, etc...) to the definition of 'prohibited wildlife species' for purposes of the prohibition against the sale or purchase of such species in interstate or foreign commerce."

O joy. Legislation about the sale of monkeys across state lines. Just what we needed. You're right of course. Congress should be working on solutions to these problems. We need more/newer refineries and more sources of oil. The argument that ANWAR won't provide oil for 10 years, or that off shore drilling isn't a permanent fix is bunk. It make take a while for the oil from ANWAR to start showing up, but we need long term solutions to this problem. Off shore drilling may not be the answer, but it might help with the transition to a new solution for energy.

Congress is like the guy who goes to the fridge, doesn't like what he sees, but is too lazy to go to the store for more food. No, they're too lazy to even eat the left-overs. Until we actually find another long term energy solution we need to work with what we have. They're just going to keep pork-barreling and whining about things until it's too late. So much for a soft landing.

Congress should always be in session, until the point at which all the major woes of the U.S. and the world at large have been addressed. They are all paid a collosal amount of money for what they do. Plus, their benefits packages (in general) are enough to provide a whole extended salary -- equivalent to what many of us make working full time.

I'd like to see their terms limited, their salaries chopped, their benefits more in line with their time spent. Then, I think we'd have less career crim..... uh, I mean career politicians forever in office.

If they're not in session now, the first item of business when they get back in will probably be a pay increase.

Well I'm being really sarcastic there, but it seems like that's all they care about.
