    That's what I said - which is why picking one of two instead of 1 of 7 is an easier solution. Restating what I obviously said doesn't make you look smart it makes your words redundant.

    Talk about simplistic --- Government workers are attracted to jobs they can keep and retire from with full benefits with high pay. You're naive view of betterment of the people is laughable.

    When junior congresspeople's jobs for the first two years is raising money, that's not for the betterment of anyone but their re-election campaign. Talk about simplistic and naive platitudes...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
