Good grief!

This is what legislators are doing with their time? Never mind all those homeless, lets make sure there’s an international standard for wheelchair ramps. That’s the important thing.

All the votes against ratification were cast by Republican Senators who feared intrusion by foreign powers into homes with home-schooled children.

Thanks to morons like Santorum, we now look like complete idiots to the world and to ourselves. Morons.

Think about that the next time you vote to keep the wealthy-controlled government in power.

There will be a lot of collateral damage to everyone if this insanity continues.
