"The 112th Congress passed 220 laws. Thatís the fewest of any Congress since we began keeping track in 1948."
Since when is placing more restrictions on Americans a good thing?
The problem is not that we do not have enough laws. The problem is that we have to many laws and there is little enforcement of the laws that actually protect the people.

Sometimes passing less is good, so I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing.

Congress is also much more polarized than ever, which makes passing anything that much harder.

Why would I go anywhere? I am not the one who resents being an American.

What is it with the teabaggers? They hate everything about the American people and it's government. They hate the fact that we even have a government. They hate free elections. They hate the institutions. They hate the justice system. They hate the educational system. They hate the civic sense of duty that we Americans espouse. They hate government employees. They hate our troops. They even hate the mail man. There is not one damn thing that they like about America, but for some bizarre reason they call themselves "patriots". I wish they would come up with their own flag to wave and leave ours alone.
