  •  I have a dream (4+ / 0-)

    I dream of a congress that carefully considers legislation in committees comprised of members who are proficient in their committee's functions - and then passes on their recommendations to the full congress with their carefully crafted recommendations!

    •  Do you mean a dream (0+ / 0-)

      of a Congress w/sane republicans?  If only.

      Perhaps we would feed the hungry, care for the sick, not go into unnecessary wars, not give billionaires more of everything, etc.

      Republican mental illness is the number one problem facing America.  
      And, we're not supposed to talk about it.

      •  Modern Republicanism isn't a mental illness, (0+ / 0-)

        its just greed and selfishness a la Ayn Rand. Mental illness, on the other hand, is a genuine medical condition.

        •  Voting to deprive the hungry of food, (0+ / 0-)

          the sick of medical care and sending the unemployed to fight unnecessary wars is a mental illness.  I've read much of Ayn Rand, she was mentally ill.  Living off the the back of society and hating the society she used, she was mentally ill.  Setting up circumstances to kill those of lesser means is a mental illness.  Is bigotry a mental illness?  Knowingly passing/voting for laws that hurt or kill those who don't have the means to defend themselves is  a mental illness.
