      It's past time for a "runaway" Congress, one that starts jailing people under inherent contempt left and right.  Swing the fucking pendulum back.

      Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

        It seems simple enough.

        •  I cannot take the dissonance anymore, (0+ / 0-)

          the never taking anything to its logical conclusion.   It's driving me up the wall.

          If he refuses to answer, subpoena him.  If he still refuses to answer (aside from taking the 5th for something that's actually self-incriminating), or if he lies, jail him under inherent contempt until he does answer.

          And with Congresspeople unwilling to do that, Congress has no power.  Better off packing it in and going home.  At least then we would have some honest recognition that Congress doesn't exist.

          Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

    •  Waxman... (0+ / 0-)

      Takes a hard line on Issa, who's done nothing wrong, but does nothing more than express incredulity with Johnson, who should be on trial for his political life.

      I think Issa's a twerp, but Waxman's taking out his frustrations on the wrong guy.
