What difference does it make?
I’ll wager it makes a hell of a lot of difference to the families of these men:
Boo-freakin’ hoo…if I don’t do my job, I run the risk of being fired ASAP. Since we don’t have that option with these SCOAMFs (I know that title’s usually reserved for BO, but it shouldn’t be…), withholding pay seems like a good plan. I’d take it one further – rather than this:
“The provisions in the bill specify that if the Senate does not pass a budget resolution, pay will be withheld until Jan. 3, 2015, when the 113th Congress ends.”
…and Voter ID is a bad idea, why?
“When Republican candidate Christine O’Donnell told Delaware voters that the Constitution, rather than her personal views, would guide her votes in the Senate, one might have expected a variety of responses from the Left — perhaps a huge sigh of relief that we’ve all been saved from a federal law banning masturbation.
But the response was actually far stranger, and tells us far more about the state of contemporary liberalism. Slate columnist Dahlia Lithwick summed up the reaction, writing that she found it “weird” that O’Donnell would consider the constitutionality of legislation. If we have to consider constitutionality at all, Lithwick mused, that certainly isn’t the job of Congress. They should just pass whatever they want and let the courts worry about it later.“

Don’t forget to vote – that’s how we fix this mess…
Well, actually not. Dunno about you, but that looks like assault and battery to me. If he did not wish to speak to the students, the proper response would be “No comment.” It’s really interesting to watch people implode.
