least productive as sending almost 30 bills to the senate during the sequester brouhaha and obama telling reid to toss em and not bring them up to a vote. bams version of 'least productive' are those who won't rubberstamp his idiotic old-world socialist utopia plans.

I'd take exception to the idea that the sanctioned terrorist tactics employed on minorities and the genocide and extension of Native Americans over the prior 234 years was a act of God. That's insane no matter who you call your god, to believe. That's reckless rhetoric to justify the most outrageous bizarre behavior known to man.

And everything costs several times more in real terms to do then it used to because of it. We even live off of cheap foreign labor to keep our standard of living looking passable. But we are now cannibalizing off each other as the haves and have nots grow chasm grows wider. And that includes the middle class, working poor and those in poverty.

Its amazing to see that there are people who seem so pleased that they've paid so many in congress so well not to do their job and hold President Obama for their passive aggressive failure. As an excellent President, he has nevertheless managed to succeed in accomplishing so much without congress' cooperation. This attests to President Obama being a great President, as history will recognize him.
Thanks for the laugh..........

Obama is the first President to tell our military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they "volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences."

First President to tell members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the above suggestion.(Thank God he didn't get away with this one.)

People looked out for each other and helped each other a lot more for a lot less. And the stay at home moms were the....doctors, nurses, lawyers, surrogate parents when needed, referees, arbiters, and policemen to the children. That has almost vanished. Yeah we had a good thing going. Improvements to benefits and credit and more could have been made with homemaking in mind. About what you take exception to, I made no comment or implied anything against them with this. What should bother you is if you are typing and living well or off of someone while making your complaint living in the good old USA.

As compelling as Schadenfreude may be, I generally restrain myself out of respect for the suffering of fellow human souls from laughing at the mistakes they've made that result in self defeat. It is, however, important to illustrate to others the causal relationship and encourage them not to keep voting from those who eagerly seek extravagant pay, as well as "gifts" from those to whom they sell their souls, but don't do their jobs in return.

Democrats hate that the American Government works the way it does, with 3 equal Branches. They would much prefer there was a King, or at least only an Executive Branch. I bet the Founders are smiling down at them knowing they have stymied the efforts to change America to some socialist country.
No, Democrats embrace it. When they loose to a Republican in a presidential election, they work with that president as much as possible. When the Republicans loose, especially to a black guy, they are so butt hurt, they won't even pass republican ideas that the president and democrats support.

LOL

They stymied Bush every chance they got.

When Republicans lose elections they go back to their real jobs.

Liberals are unemployable except in the public sector.

Boy, I would guess that you would think one of the perks was dealing with a party of No and a congress with a very low favorable rating. LOLL

It's in direct correlation to barock the golfing campaigner's outings and fundraisers.

It's also no coincidence that they are being called the least productive congress by the least productive president.

We are a Representative Republic. That means our Congressmen, and Senators vote the way their constituents tell them to vote. If the President wants more support from Congress he needs to convince the people he is anything but a loon. The American people don't want what he is proposing for the country.

We need to elect a congress that's willing to negotiate and compromise, rather than be more obstructionistic than a two year old child.
