Today’s AYFKM? Award: Insane Congressional Waste

Congress has got to GO!

The money that we make working our jobs is the equivalent of time away from family, friends, and leisurely pursuits.  It is a GIMME that we would like for our Congress to spend the money that is taken from us in taxes in more appropriate ways.

Today’s ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME? Award goes to Rep. Emanuel Cleaver [D-MO5], Rep. William Clay [D-MO1], and Rep. Samuel Graves [R-MO6] for putting forward a House Concurrent Resolution to “Support The Goals and Ideals Of A Complaint Free Wednesday”.  Yes Missouri residents, these are your non-representative clowns.  What are you going to do about it?

These ____________(insert your own word here) are spending our tax money to pass a formal statement of opinion.  That’s all; an opinion that is not law and does not require the President’s signature, but an opinion that is going to “encourage” you on how to think and act.  What the fr*kkin’ h*ll is next?

From Answers.com:

US Government Guide: concurrent resolution

A concurrent resolution is a formal statement passed by both houses of the Congress, stating the opinion of Congress or permitting some action that does not require the President’s approval. A concurrent resolution must pass both the House and Senate in the same language, but because it does not have the President’s signature, it does not have the force of law. Instead, Congress uses concurrent resolutions (designated as H. Con. Res. or S. Con. Res.) for such housekeeping functions as creating joint committees, authorizing the printing of congressional documents, and setting the date for Congress to adjourn. Concurrent resolutions also express the sense, or opinion, of Congress on many matters of foreign and domestic policy.

They are spending our tax dollars to do this?!  If these three a**hats need honest work, they can come to my house to clean the toilets, mow the lawn, and wash my car.  It would be more honorable than what follows.

H. CON. RES. 155

Supporting the goals and ideals of ‘Complaint Free Wednesday’.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

June 17, 2009

Mr. CLEAVER (for himself, Mr. CLAY, and Mr. GRAVES) submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform


CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Supporting the goals and ideals of ‘Complaint Free Wednesday’.

Whereas the average person complains approximately 15 to 30 times per day, resulting in roughly 4,500,000,000 complaints spoken every day in the United States;

Whereas complaining keeps people focused on current problems stultifying their innate abilities to seek and create positive, harmonious solutions;

Whereas complaining has been shown by research psychologists to be detrimental to a person’s physical and emotional health, relationships, and to limit their career success;

Whereas the ‘A Complaint Free World’ organization is to be recognized for its efforts to encourage people to redirect their minds toward more positive, constructive, and rewarding lives and for its goal to positively inspire at least 1 percent of the global population (60 million people) to become complaint free;

Whereas thousands of people across the United States, including many students, have already adopted the complaint free attitude; and

Whereas ‘Complaint Free Wednesday’ will be observed on the day before Thanksgiving, providing each person in the United States a day free from complaining in order to prepare for a day of gratitude: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That Congress–

(1) supports the goals and ideals of Complaint Free Wednesday;

(2) encourages each person in the United States to remember that having a positive life begins with having a positive attitude; and

(3) recognizes and reaffirms the meaning of Thanksgiving by asking each person in the United States to use ‘Complaint Free Wednesday’ to refrain from complaining and prepare for a day of gratitude.
