Finally, A Mother’s Day Vote

It appears that there was a vote on Wednesday in the House on Res 1113, supporting the goals and ideals of Mother’s Day, submitted by Jeff Forentenberry, a Republican. Democrat tools Dana Millbank and Think Progress are excoriating Republicans for silly voting tricks, and, I do not blame them for that.

However, both of them failed to mention that this resolution has been languishing in committee for almost a full year, thanks to the Democrat controlled House. What took almost a year to get ‘er done? Dana? Think Progress? The other liberal tools listed at Memeorandum? Beuller?

    I really don’t understand votes like this. It seems like such a waist of time. I would rather our government spend its valuable time trying to fix real problems than pass pointless resolutions.

  2. Well, to be honest, when Congress is doing stuff like this, they aren’t doing stuff that f*ck’s up our lives.

    The best thing would be for the majority of power be transferred back to the States where it belongs, where the Founders meant for it to be. So much of the stuff done at the federal level is simply vote buying schemes. People at the lower levels are more contactable and accountable.

    178 Republicans voted against the mother’s of America
    This is really getting to be the political party of clownshttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/05/08/AR2008050802999.html?hpid=news-col-blog&sid=ST2008050900005

    The reason that the Republicans voted aginst it was because they found out that the original Mother’s Day was a holiday that was started by peace activists

    What music do you listen to when you toke on your water pipe? Or is that CNN or M-TV playing in the background? Or MSNBC perhaps? Unlike the DNC’s 72% ghetto base, at least we know WHO our MOTHERS are, eh? And FATHERS too… Imagine that!
