    This practice of attaching completely unrelated amendments to bills needs to stop. They do this all the time in the Senate. They'll attach some provision they have been wrangling over to some really important bill that they know the other side will be hesitant to vote against in order to force their hand. Both parties do this and it needs to be against the Senate rules.

    Can't even put on a decent war anymore without some useless public servants wanting a piece of the action.

    That's an excellent assumption.

    Just how much education does a person need to shoot a gun?
