    Congress is NOT a business.

    OK, but the OP claims 75% want term limits. Do you think they want term limits for everyone EXCEPT their chosen thief? Conundrum, eh?

    No, I Do Not Like Term Limits For The Congress

    Eliminate Pensions
    Congressional And Presidential
    None Of Them Need Them

    Lawmakers propose end to congressional pensions - The Hill

    Except Joe Biden
    The Poorest (Dumbest) Politician On Capital Hill

    How about if you drop the "cuteness" and answer the question seriously?

    Or are you so biased and angry that stooping to ignorance is your only option?

    I oppose a political class as much as the next guy but perhaps the focus isn't so much the guy in the political ads as much as the army of assistants who have taken up camp in Congress. A congress critter's seniority can be measured by what committees he/she chairs orrrr how many staffers he/she has.

    I have nothing against terms limits, they seem like a very democratic thing to do. I fear for the Union is a state can't find two people every 8 to 12 years to be senators, or a district can't find someone at least as good as the 'legitimate rape' guy when the term limit is hit by the predecessor.

    Out here we have big simple blocks of land. Every so often a river shapes a border but a quick glance shows the blocks all row after row. Perhaps congressional districts could look a bit more like Midwestern counties and less like spilled ink. I think gerrymandering is a concept who's time has come and gone.
