Urban Dictionary Word of the Day: Congressional Review.

"To loosely read or breeze through a document, likely missing a fair amount of the information contained within."
How tough will the upgrade be?
I'm not too sure, I only gave the guide a Congressional Review.

At last the rest of the country knows what the small businesses and the medical profession has been suffering at the hands of these fools for years. With any luck this internet censorship power grab will be the beginning of the end for the petty tyrants.

True, some members of congress have been known to jump the pages to get to the end.

It was submitted by one soro's front groups, it must be good.

We are in a "better just to skim" world now. Scraping is the new depth.

No surprise here. Not by the longest shot, and based on decades of experience augmented by quite fresh, recent [and even ongoing, ever both fresh and recent] experience.

Everything is infinite anyway so we all miss lots of stuff most of the time.

I, myself, wouldn't limit the application just to Congress, but, you know, whatever.

Also, at the risk of deletion, which I will fully accept, without comment, may I just repeat the link, just after the fact, the same so it goes link that I posted just before the fact of the S.C. primary?

It's a tangle, is what's up.

Since the age of computers has dawned our enemies have deluged us demanding that we read and analyze millions of facts that they know is impossible to do. So we are forced to trust others to do it...and then they buy them off.

How's that supposed consensus that CO2 traps heat working these days?

Which is one more reason that we need a Gingrich mind and feisty approach on our side these days.

How about a Constitutional Amendment stating that no bill longer than 10 pages (double spaced, 14 pt font) may be laid before Congress?

Forty percent of South Carolina Republicans prefer open marriage as an alternative to raiding failing corporations and stashing the loot in offshore banks.

They are part of the same majority that said Clintons affair with a WH intern was a private matter.

Own your victories.

Lem said...

Btw all the info I've read says that Mitt has not evaded paying taxes.. as opposed to Obamas tresury secretary.

Defeating Obama should be easier than it looks.

Lem said...

You cant make this stuff up.

A treasury sec that didn't pay taxes and a justice head that lies to congress.

It should be the responsibility of Congress, by Congressional review, to vet the Constitutional eligibility of every Presidential and Vice Presidential candidate, since they make the rules of the Electoral College (talk about rotten fruit of a poison tree!). Alas the treasonous criminals in Congress have more than "not vetted" them, they have cloaked their language of non certification is lawyeristic vagueness.
They said that Obama was "duly nominated" in 2008, which does not mean "Constitutionally eligible", and only applies to "procedurally correct". Obama, at www.AttackWatch.com , says himself that he is an "American-born Citizen". Congress, by Congressional Review, will not certify that Obama is eligible, and neither will Obama himself. OBVIOUSLY he is not eligible.

Deleted? WTF! I think Meade may have just Judicial Reviewed my comment!

He has to pass it before we see what's in it.

As opposed to a "Washington read," which means flipping to the index and looking for your name.

Actually, the rule should be that no single bill can contain more words than the Federal Constitution. (I'll even throw in the amendments.) If the founders could set up the entire government in that length, you should be able to solve your petty problem.
