    Well, the senate will likely kill it, which is some small consolation.

    Seriously, why are these people alive again?

    • Schneibster

      Because there’s no air tax calibrated to teh stupid.

    • The Panic Man

      Because nobody wants to be the guy who cleans the guillotine.

        At the rate things are going there’ll be volunteers soon enough.

      Because murder is a serious crime.

        Yeah, but the penalty for murder is a shot in the arm, and I’ve got two arms. I think it might be worth it to get rid of a few of those assholes.

          The problem with the shot isn’t the arm, it’s the body attached to the arm.

  • Schneibster

    Aw shit.

    ETA: thanks for the info, recommended.

    Sometimes it sucks to be right.

    After which, the distinguished members probably treated themselves to a good meal.

    And Firebaggers / Ratfuckers continue to spread the lie that the 2 parties are the same.Democrats are just as bad as Republicans according to them.

    Whenever these assholes say that shit…all I hear is…”I’m a privileged (white) douchebag”

    Since this is likely to die in the Senate, it’s purely a masturbatory exercise so that the republicans can go back to their teabagger moron supporters claim that they tried.
