“That's still too good for them.

This will stop when the people with this kind of mindset know with certainty they will be executed for their crime.

That will stop it.

And at the very least we will not pay to house, feed, and cloth them for the rest of their lives.”

“Not true.  The issue has not been settled.  Some state constitutions leave it open to judicial interpretation.  I will grant you it has never happened. 
Here's the facts:"Some states constitutions have stated the right of citizens to recall their members of congress, but whether it constitutionally legal at the federal level has not been yet been ruled upon by the United States Supreme Court. One of the closest noted legal precedent is U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton, in which the Supreme Court decided that states did not have the right to impose new terms, qualifications, or conditions of service on federal officials.[7]Some states have released opinions and rulings on recall of members of the United States Congress. Attorney generals in Arkansas (2010), Louisiana (2009), Kansas (1994), Nevada (1978), and Oregon (1935) all gave opinions against recall of federal officials. The Attorney General of Wisconsin in 1979 give an opinion that state administration could not reject a petition for recall of a member of congress. The Supreme Court of New Jersey ruled against federal recall in 2010. That same year the Supreme Court of North Dakota upheld an opinion by the Attorney General of the state against recall of federal officials. Michigan courts stopped a recall petition against a member of Congress in 2007. And, a federal court in 1967 dismissed a case from Idaho where petitioners hoped to force the state to accept petitions seeking recall of a Senator.[7]"”

WowJones on Oct 14, 2013 at 21:26:55

“No.

The U.S. Constitution does not provide for a recall of United States Senators or Congressmen.

Expulsion is the responsibility of the members of Congress.

The recall of United States Senators or Representatives had been considered during the time of the drafting of the federal Constitution, but recall provisions were rejected and were not included in the final version of the Constitution sent to the States for ratification.

Bottom line: If you wish to recall a Congressman, you need to first pass a Constitutional Amendment allowing a recall.”

“Yep. And the Democrats just lost their moral standing by demanding repeal of sequestration cuts before reaching a deal.

I hold both sides responsible and our President.

We would have been way better off with Clinton as President. At least she (and Bill) knew how to compromise and reach deals with people.

“I'm disgusted with the Tea Party and I'm equally disgusted with the Democrats who are now demanding repeal of the sequestration cuts before reaching a deal.

I say kick them all out with a recall vote. Or at least get them next time they run.

For the people who want to file a class action suit against them for what they are doing that's barred by the Constitution. You are not allowed to sue them for regular legislative acts.

The have immunity against civil suits like that. They would have to be brought up on ethics charged and censured by the Congress.

Don't hold your breath !”

“Yeah, it's too bad that nobody had a chance to negotiate a budget before all this happened, right? Oh yeah, the Senate had been after the House to name people to the conference committee since March, but they refused so they could shut down the government.”

GhostOfFDR on Oct 14, 2013 at 21:27:23

“" I'm equally disgusted with the Democrats who are now demanding repeal of the sequestration cuts before reaching a deal."

I'm guessing that's just because you can't sit down at a negotiating table with a starting position of "I don't want anything." The Republicans are demanding something so they can save face. So the Republican staring position is now "more cuts to head start, food stamps, and delay Obamacare a year." The Democratic position is "repeal some of the sequester cuts". Tomorrow they will hopefully end up in the middle, which is a clean CR and an X month extension on the debt ceiling. Then they can both claim victory. The Democrats can say they didn't give in on Obamacare, and the Republicans can say they didn't give in on the sequester cuts.”

“Gang rapes in India occur in public and in the case I am thinking of on a public bus for over six hours with bystanders doing nothing.

It is also common for men who are upset with a women for leaving them to throw acid in their faces as punishment for their disrespect.

While India is a very old and very rich culture with many positives there are still many aspects of their culture that are barbaric by Western standard and actually represent human rights abuses.

There is no defense or justification for behaviors like this.”

“The people on the ship were from "India, Britain, Estonia, and Ukraine" and it has nothing to do with war mongering as they are there to protect ships against pirates.

If the weapons are not purchased from the U.S. they will be from the Russians, Chinese, Israeli's or even the Columbian drug cartels. Better to have them producing jobs and paying taxes here than supporting other criminals.”

“This crew are not cops or regular military. They are paid mercenaries - i.e., hired guns. Neither they, nor the companies who employ them, are known for following the rules. They were in Indian territorial waters without proper permits for the weapons that they were carrying. Would you expect our own Coast Guard to ignore them if they were in our territory?”

“Ha, I probably know one of these guys.
A lot of UK ex-forces went into this game after they finished up in Iraq/Afghanistan. It’s good money, but very boring I hear. I know an ex-Royal Marine who just said it was mainly sitting around with a heavy machine gun and eating the awful food the Filipino crew ate.
I’m not big on well-armed private security firms, but if there’s ANYWHERE it’s justified in having them, it’s international waters with a big piracy risk.”

“You're absolutely right, because The President should be meeting with Boehner and McConnell every minute of every day until the Shutdown is done because that'll change everything.
Obviously you want The President to become a Hostage of the Republicans. Ain't going to happen and shouldn't. We wouldn't even be having this problem if Boehner had set up a conference committee to reconcile the house budget and the senate budget. The budget was passed in March by both houses and Boehner has dropped the ball, AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.”
