  •  Ouch. Look, I'm sorry you're not happy with your (8+ / 0-)

    Representative, but that's not my problem. All I did was try to express a note of compassion for someone with a troubled son. Hardly worth the vitriol you've poured on me.

    And wtf business is it of yours, that health insurance remark? Don't tell me you're so concerned about my insurance. You're just trying to me the bad person on the off chance that I had some coverage for a necessary treatment. As it happens, and since it's totally irrelevant to my post, it's none of your effing business.

    I think you must be a very unpleasant person. Just sayin'

    •  you're missing my point entirely. (0+ / 0-)

      These people are public servants. Their job is to represent the interests of their constituents--in the case of the Jacksons, a huge proportion of those constituents do NOT share the myriad privileges afforded them by these positions as public servants, the ability to take off 6 months being just one of many.
      When they get to a point in their lives where they can no longer serve their constituents (for whatever reason), then it's time for them to withdraw and let someone else step in who can.

      It's not about you at all. You're the one who brought yourself and your situation into the discussion.

        Gabby Giffords.

        All "public servants" must immediately go to ashes and sack cloth at once.

        Actually, he is a Representative; he represents you, not serves you, and is not your employee.

        I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... *I'm asking you to believe in yours.* Barack Obama
