    Hey Stuff -

    "Our congress is so impotent they can't pass laws anymore. "

    Well . . . What do you expect from "Conservative" Congressmen? . . . Many of whom were elected on a hate-the-government platform.

    They were voted into office on the basis of their claims that the government is evil, corrupt, useless, stupid, and impotent . . . And NOW they have the power to PROVE their claims.

    Shouldn't there be a reason for "betraying our nation"? Why do so if there is no huge payoff for such an awful act? Surely worf can reveal just what the motive is for this devilry, right? While he's at it, let's hear some names of the traitors.

    Manchin said he fears the pact would not keep Iran from becoming a nuclear weapons state over the longer term. "I cannot gamble our security, and that of our allies, on the hope that Iran will conduct themselves differently than it has for the last 36 years," Manchin said in a statement.

    Our congress is so impotent they can't pass laws anymore. They wait for the executive branch to make the laws. Then, in their impotency (or fraud), they "try" to express disapproval thru a resolution. Good grief.

    With so many corrupt politicians who would betray our nation, this resolution will pass.

    My evidence?

    * the healthcare bill
    * more free trade agreements
    * the stimulus package
    * rising national debt
    * weakening defense
    * etc.
