Ignorance is bliss.
Thatds the government. You’re making Australia (where I live) sound like a 5-Star resort
The news as sooner or later hit you, Pig, and sometimes in episodes.
“He’s having a temper tantrum.”
“I am not having a temper tantrum.” (pout)
The leader of the country should be chosen by a cage match… I’m betting on Nancy.
This would be a good description of Toronto City Council a few years back.
Ha ha ha ha ha! So much for you pointing fingers at us “third world” people, Pig!
Right, Pig, that is YOUR government, and YOUR tax paying money NOT making it work properly.
No more election news for me! We in India just re-elected the Fascists with almost the same majority. Many of them are religiously motivated terrorists facing trial. We are going to see another round of prosecution withdrawals.
MIght be better if the DID carry it out that way. At least something might get done.
Pig did you study history ? If you did you would know that this has been going on forever. This is not new . ……. Croc Power !
Both parties in this country are inept. Nothing gets done but this fake fighting. Why don’t we all quit falling for it. It’s there way of controlling us.
That’s our corrupted govt alright! Obstructionists, deflectionists, and dumbasses !
In the old days they had duels!
The Icelandic parliament is boring and I’ve sometimes thought it would be alot more interesting if it were like what I’ve seen from some other European countries, where people get into fights and throw chairs at each other (hopefully without anybody getting seriously hurt). As an example of how boring it is, there were some MPs together at a bar and they started badmouthing MPs from other parties. Somebody recorded it on their phone and it got published in the media. That was in November, and it’s still in the news.
The Caning of Charles Sumner, or the Brooks–Sumner Affair, occurred on May 22, 1856, in the United States Senate when Representative Preston Brooks (D-SC) used a walking cane to attack Senator Charles Sumner (R-MA), an abolitionist, in retaliation for a speech given by Sumner two days earlier in which he fiercely criticized slaveholders, including a relative of Brooks. The beating nearly killed Sumner and it drew a sharply polarized response from the American public on the subject of the expansion of slavery in the United States. It has been considered symbolic of the “Breakdown of reasoned discourse”1 that eventually led to the American Civil War.
I agree, Pig!
Old news, Pig! Check out U.S. Senators Preston Brooks and Charles Sumner. Ah, those were the days.
Heinz has a new product in Canada, Mayochup. In Cree not so nice.
Do we really still need government?
I’m sure Mark and Jeff and Elon can take of us.
Goobermint*, Pig, Goobermint!
Isn’t that a kick in the hoo-haws, figs, stones, jelly beans, boys, soldiers etc.
Congressional House of Representatives debating another bill – and that’s just the Democrats. Republicans had not been invited for comments.
I’m disappointed, Stephan. You could just as easily have Maxine Waters or Katie Porter kick both guys in the hoo-haws. And with pointy heels, it would hurt worse.
Wrong! It’s British Parliament. And that’s no guy kicking hoo-haws there, it’s Theresa May getting her pound of flesh before making a Brexit.
Season? SEASON? If only it were that short… it’s been campaign “season” 24/7 for the past 10 years.
So that’s why dead people in the US vote… so they don’t get fined. LOL
It hurts to hear the news. I am 66 and this is so awful these days.
Nothing new here, nor under the sun, Pig. Get used to it, ’cause the Real Nasty World is not some snowflakey romantic comedy. If it bites, bite back….
The hoo-haws, huh, Pig? Guess the oompa loompas are taking a day off …
I’m not going to read the other 84 comments before I say this, but it hasn’t gotten that bad here … yet. Can’t say I wouldn’t like to see AOC in a cat-fight with a conservative lady, especially if clothing was optional …
Look up the YouTube video “VERNON FLORIDA CITY COUNCIL BRAWL 1984”.
I wish that were true; we haven’t had a really good donnybrook in either house of Congress since the 19th century, and it would make C-SPAN a lot more entertaining.
