Good Morning.

'tis finally a beautiful morning around these parts. We've got some moderate temperatures, the sun is shining, and there's still feet of snow on the ground. So naturally, I'm dusting off my snowshoes and heading out with Mr. Bean to play in it.

It's Our Government
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-03-04 11:31:05

Since the beginning of our country's history, the separation of powers has been a hallmark of our system. It can be frustrating at times, and result in progress coming in fits and starts, dotted among long passages of inaction and gridlock. The very nature of it, though, is to prevent one branch from usurping the powers of the others. It's always galling, though, when one branch tries to sidestep others.

All the way back to President Washington, the Executive branch has managed our relationships with foreign powers. The Secretary of State is one of the longest-existing, powerful, and venerated positions in the Executive branch, and 4th in line in succession to the presidency. It's an important job, and requires tact, diplomacy, and a deep knowledge of foreign cultures and political situations.

Republicans in Congress, however, think they know better. Despite their inability to even agree on a Department of Homeland Security funding bill, they feel that inviting a foreign head of state to speak to them about negotiations that our SOS is actively working on will somehow improve the situation. This is shoving a bull into the operating room while a doctor is performing open-heart surgery.

It's the politics, not the religion or the country.
Author: Raine    Date: 03/02/2015 14:10:14

I support Israel, I do not support its Prime Minister. I support my country, I do not support the leader of the House.

Going behind the administration the way the Speaker did is unconscionable. I have no problem with any Prime Minister of a country in good standing with the United states addressing Congress. That includes Israel.

'Murika. What the...?
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 03/01/2015 15:44:11

At this point we must wonder if there's someone poisoning our fellow Republicans. I mean, how do you explain some of this?

From Boston to Shi'Kahr
Author: TriSec    Date: 02/28/2015 14:43:54

Good Morning.

We're going to go back in time a little bit, to a pre-war Boston. You've all seen our tidy little penninsula.

Today, February 27, 2015, I predict very little work will get done in offices and homes around DC. Why?

Season 3 of House of Cards is out!
