An argument for term limits
On Constitutional grounds I'm opposed to the idea of term limits believing the voters should decide when someone has held a job too long. However, seeing this legislation passed tells me we have at least 288 congresscritters who have overstayed their usefulness. Every one of the 288 who voted yes should be ousted from congress immediately regardless of political party! What is the subject of this legislation that has me riled up?
The House of Representatives successfully passed the Guam World War II Loyalty Recognition Act. The document essentially outlines reparations for Chamorros and their descendants during the Japanese occupation of Guam in the 1940s.So, sixty some years ago the Japanese committed atrocities during WWII and now we are going to give handouts to the descendants of the victims. WHAT?!? Beyond how wrong this very idea is, what is especially galling is that some of the same idiots who frequently complain about the cost of the current war (Kucinich, etc) turned around and voted to spend more money on a war we won 62 years ago.
My congressman (Rep. Boehner) voted against this garbage. Did yours?
