    D.C. Voting Measure Clears The Senate



    By Mary Beth Sheridan and Hamil R. Harris
    Washington Post Staff Writers
    Friday, February 27, 2009; Page A01

    The Senate passed a bill yesterday that would give the District a voting seat in the House of Representatives, but lawmakers attached language strongly opposed by city leaders that strips most local gun-control laws.

    I am now so incredibly pissed off it's not even funny. I just called all of my representatives and gave them an ear full. If they are not going to uphold the CONSTITUTION of the United States of America - these bastards need to be REMOVED FROM OFFICE!!

    They're relying on this part of Article Two for this power:
    "To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings"

    Does that mean I can get a house seat for my post office? The local military base?

    Oh, nevermind, this is just useless politiking.

    Constitution of the United States of America. Born 1787. Died 2009. R.I.P.

    First we have a man elected President who may or may not be eligible. No court in the country wants to touch any one of a few dozen cases challanging this. If I recall a Federal Court said that it is up to congress, not ordinary citizens to determine the eligibility of a candidate. The senate held eligibility hearings on JOHN MCCAIN to determine if he was eligible, but never considered BHO. So other suits are filed with third party/independents as plantiffs. To date they have gone nowhere. Then Senator Mel Martinez tells a constituent that the courts have ruled that the constitution defines eligible, but provides no mechanism to remove an ineligible person from the elected office. Therefore the task of determining a president's eligibility falls upon the voters. So if the voters elect Vladimir Putin as president, the constitution is tossed aside and he is sworn into office! I cannot believe this! If "Christ in Urine" or "Virgine Mary Covered in Elephant Dung" can be protected under the constitution as free speech, surely someone can find a clause in there to remove an ineligible president from office.

    Now D.C. may be allowed a voting member in the house. Where does it end?

    I wonder if Moveon.org will get its own representative, too?

    Republicans would rather shred the Constitution than be accused of being "racist".

    We, the American people voted every one of those sons of bitches into office. We are getting exactly what the majority wanted. If this doesn't prove that America has a helluva lot of stupid MF's, I don't know what will. :(:(
