The things the US government wastes time on

So if you are like the rest of the world, you are probably not surprised by the stock market taking a dump with all the three ring circus over the debt ceiling we've been having for the last several weeks. In that time Congress failed to keep the FAA open (way to go you stupid f*cks), introduced the Internet snooping Bill and even passed it in the house.

In short if you live in the US, I'm not in favor of either party right now and the lack of a 3rd (or 4th and 5th for that matter) party is letting this power consolidation go on unabated. I am proposing we choose to not re-elect a single US Representative or US Congressman. Not one, I think the message needs to not be one or the other side is right, but that you all are a bunch of dicks and need to work together or we will not re-elect you.

  1. They ARE all a bunch of dicks. They've made me hate politics more than I already did, which was a lot.

  3. False equivalency. You can't put the blame on both parties, when the majority of what you cite as the government wasting time is the fault of the republicans.
    Who wanted to close FAA? Republicans.
    Who passed the internet snooping bill in the republican controlled house? Republicans.
    Who was the party that manufactured the crisis of the debt ceiling, a vote that had virtually no controversy in american history? Republicans.

    I think a far simpler solution than mass boycotting of incumbents would be simply not to vote for divided government and expect thinks to work smoother. We were actually doing pretty well in economic growth compared to where we are now after so many idiots voted republican in 2010.

  4. People shouldn't be able to bet against the stock market and make money off of it. That's part of the problem right there. You can bet against the market, make a fortune in the collapse, and further spur the decline.... wtf.

  10. I do wish we had more choices. It literally feels like it's all a joke.
