    And?

    Did the vote not happen because it makes you have Mister Frowny Face?

      The vote is meaningless just like all the other votes to hold bush people in contempt. Nothing has happened and nothing will. Kagro, surely you of all people don't really believe that anything will ultimately come of this. There will be NO accountability.

      Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

        The point is that it happened, so I reported it.

        Which gives all you Mister Grumpy Faces the chance to vent your spleens.

        Obviously, there's no making you sourpusses happy, even when it comes to facilitating your sourpussedness. But if you can't conceptually differentiate between your pessimism and the fact that there are things to be pessimistic about, you have a problem I just can't help you with.

          .... it's not impeachment, and I want to see if the Chief Justice has a fancier robe for such occasions.

          I'm not faulting you for reporting it. I appreciate that. All I'm trying to say is that now that they've had their little vote that will be the end of it. Congress has done absolutely nothing to show that they are willing to move beyond sternly worded letters on cute little contempt votes. They have the power to rectify any number of the things that give us mr. frowny faces, but they're choosing to keep that powder dry for-- for-- for-ever, I guess.

          Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

          and skeptical then there's no helping you.

          Say it with me s-l-o-w-l-y:

          The U.S. government has been hijacked.

          Please wake up already. How exactly would a corrupt, tyrannical government differ from what we are living under?

          More stolen elections? More torture? More wiretapping? Even less accountability? Would the no-fly lists be much longer?
