Here’s why the Repub-controlled House is totally full of s***:

http://bluntandcranky.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/heres-why-the-repub-controlled-house-is-totally-full-of-s/

Short post today, so I'm putting it the whole thing out. Just a rant.

"The “Republican”-controlled House of “Representatives” acts as though they speak for the “American People”, even though they clearly do not. They got pummeled in the last election; are regarded horribly in any poll you’d care to cite; are loathed by everyone from the Loony Left to the Raging Right; are hated by Main Street and Wall Street alike; and still they claim to speak for us. They might be delusional or cynical, but it is patently obvious to everyone but the Gang of 218 that they speak for no one but themselves.

Think about it - they want to shut down the government, even though the majority of Americans oppose it. They want to keep siphoning money away from the poor to give to the rich, even though the majority of Americans oppose it. And they are claiming that the American People hate Obamacare, when in fact the American People are not of one mind on the topic.

This misrepresentation on the part of the House is why this writer puts “Representatives” in quotations whenever they are called out: they cannot represent us if they misrepresent us. And that, Gentle Reader, is why the “Republican”-controlled House of “Representatives” is truly, massively, totally full of s***."

4. They remind me of the Gang of Four, in terms of malevolent intent.

Not meant in any way to minimize the suffering of the Chinese people, of course.
