    I've taken to watching C-SPAN when they broadcast proceedings in the House of Commons, and I must say that the difference between Britain's Parliament and America's Congress is striking.

    The level, speed and quality of the repartee in the House of Commons is, at times, breathtaking. The representatives are always there, and are not speaking before an empty gallery as theire counterparts in Congress often are.

    And although he's Dubbyuh's lapdog and his intellectual superior (most anybody is), Tony Blair answers all of his critics cogently and with a sense of humor. I simply cannot see Dubbyuh engaging in such a rapid fire debate in Congress. He would stutter, stumble, get pissed off and storm out of the room.

    Were it not for his daddy's name, Dubbyuh would be pumping gas in some dusty little Texas hell-hole and drinking his brains, what few he has, out every night

    Tell us all how it feels to be in the minority?

    Your words are all starting to blend together and come out as "blah blah blah". Same shit different day.

    But hey, if it makes you feel better to regurgitate the same crap day in and day out, more power to you. Can you dig it?

    potshots at W aside, the difference between the legislative branches of england and the usa are worth a gander. It is a bit disturbing to see how many votes are not attended by a large number of our congressional folk.

    Indeed! A society gets the government it deserves, which is a sad commentery on the state of American society.

    Ahhh! "America...Love It or Leave It!"

    How well I remember that right-wing-nut battle cry!

    I love America, I simply want it delivered back into the hand s of the people rather than the likes of Dubbyuh and his corporate pimps and johns. Sorry if you've got a problem with that.
