We know it, but we are in for a tough road


November will be a break point for this country.  If the people can wrest control of the legislature from the ruling party, the lame duck session could very well become a maelstrom of bad spending legislation.   Once these people have nothing to lose they will vote for anything.


It has already started.  How about this gem:

H. R. 5878

To amend the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to make funds and tax benefits available to assist job creation and workforce diversification in the golf industry, and for other purposes.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

July 27, 2010

Mr. CLYBURN introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means, and in addition to the Committee on Education and Labor, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned


GOLF?   What?   Is this guy from South Carolina?  Oh yea he is.  Come on bailing out your state in the guise of a jobs bill?  These people are weak at best.

How about this one:

111th CONGRESS 2d Session

H. R. 6106

To direct the Secretary of Education to establish a clearinghouse of information on best practices for ocean lifeguard training programs.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

August 10, 2010

Mr. WEINER (for himself and Mr. BILBRAY) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Education and Labor

I fail to see why the feds would care about lifeguards.   I did not know it was a federal certification  Wait it isn’t..  This from a site about how to become a lifeguard.

There are seven distinct forms of lifeguard certification within the United States, and each has its strengths and weaknesses. Each form is generally accepted by employers as being a valid recognition of certain basic skills. The American Red Cross, the Starfish Aquatics Institute, the Boy Scouts of America, the National Aquatic Safety Company, the YMCA, the City of Los Angeles, and Jeff Ellis and Associates all offer a form of lifeguard certification. Of these, the American Red Cross most likely has the most recognized name and certification, and many people choose to attend their Lifeguard Training Program if they are pursuing a career in a competitive region. Those looking for work in Los Angeles or nearby environs, however, may find the certification through the City of Los Angeles to be preferable, as it is generally recognized as the best lifeguard certification in the region

One more for you.

111th CONGRESS 2d Session

H. R. 6101

To amend part A of title IV of the Energy Conservation and Production Act to require the Secretary of Energy to determine whether there are systemic impediments to carrying out the weatherization program under that part, and for other purposes.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

August 10, 2010

Mr. SESTAK introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce

This is the guy who wants Spector’s seat.  And he wants to make sure nothing stands in the way of spending your money to weather proof the houses of people who can’t pay for it themselves.  Maybe we should apply for the assistance.  Let’s see what happens.

Folks this session of the house has had over 6100 proposed bills or amendments.   How could they possibly know what they are voting on each and every time.  We all know the answer.  I for one want them to slow down and read everything they can to make sure it is right.  We know they won’t at this pace.  What will happen when they are lame ducks?
