DLA For Sunday 112810

At least you have to consider it.

Hey folks,

Did you catch this? Someone who gets it. You want to know why some are VERY happy that, most likely, we are going to get gridlock in the Government? Because nothing will get done? That's the point. Now we have someone making the suggestion that they just stay home.

Our winner? Bobby Jindal: Make Congress part-time
Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal wants members of Congress to stay home more often.

“We used to pay farmers not to grow crops, let's pay congressmen to stay out of Washington, D.C.,” Jindal said in an interview with Human Events. “Mark Twain said that our liberty, our wallets were safest when the legislature's not in session.”
{Laughing} They can't screw things up if they are not there.
Jindal, himself a former congressman, said once elected, many lawmakers become entrenched in Washington and become the very people they once campaigned against.

“Make them part-time, give them term limits,” Jindal said. “Don’t let them become lobbyists. When they have to live under the same rules and laws they pass for the rest of us, maybe you’d see some more common sense coming out of Washington, D.C.”

As the system works today, he said, “you’ve got a permanent governing political class.”
Most of whom are Millionaires and actually get away with engaging in Class Warfare.

I like the Ideas. Part Time and Term Limits. Things we SHOULD be considering. Congratulations Bobby Jindal, you ARE the Winner of the Display of Logic Award for this day, Sunday 112810. For not only showing Intelligence to see it, but for having the courage to stand up and SAY something about it.
