    Is clearly not thinking rationally.  This is the logic that got us the Patriot Act.  You're on the verge of an all-out panic and you just want something done, doesn't matter what.

      you dont know me at all then.  I am a very logical and rational person.  Profanity has NOTHING to do with irrationality otherwise bill mahr would be considered a moron.

        You still haven't responded to the point:  why we should do this just for the sake of doing something.  We have no idea if it's going to help.  A lot of very smart people don't think it will.

        We deserve a thorough debate to find out the truth rather than people like you trying to ram through the first bill we get just so we can take action.

    •  you have taken one situation (1+ / 0-)

      decided that this situation is identical and should be treated as though we are repeating history. Sorry, this is an all new situation and your idealized solution for one can't be applied willynilly to the other.

      •  That doesn't mean we can't learn (0+ / 0-)

        It is an all new situation, but you're ignoring that we have, in the past, been forcefed legislation that nobody understood the impact of and that turned out to be absolutely atrocious.

        How many people would have liked to have that vote back?  Do you not think we can live with a couple days more discussion to make sure this isn't the same thing?  What kind of progressive are you?
