    What did this resolution accomplish, aside from costing money and time that is?

    Is that in defense of Paul, or just criticism of the resolution?

    Rather they waste time passing pointless resolutions then cap and trade bills and crap like that.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    So, any Ronulans who want to defend Herr Doktor over this? I have little to no doubt in my mind what their arguments will be, but I'm anxious to start crushing them.

    I see it as a bunch of shat to be voting on symbolic legislation. Probably thinks it's a waste of time.

    Symbolism over substance as Rush Limbaugh would say.

    Voting on symbolic matters is the equivelant of singing Kumbaya for Congress critters.

    I'd rather they stay home and stop wasting our money with crap like this...

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    I'd rather they pass a binding resolution that states that all new spending bills from that day forward must have a five year sunset. If sunset clauses are good for tax cuts, they sure as hell ought to be good for spending.
