    Every time the wife plays Pink's Fun House. I can not help but think of the Framers of the Constitution compared to the Congresses we have today.

    "This used to be a fun house, but now it's full of Evil Clowns"

    Says it all.

    lol

    Does anyone have any songs other than these? I remember Republic used to have this song they did that was acoustic that Ryan did. It had that same emo feeling like one of their songs, Fool, and had a part that went "not far to go, Im not lost" Any other songs they did before they changed their name and or when Ryan Tedder (The lead singer) was solo, would be great!

    Between the world development over which we have not power (the development of the rest of the world post WWII, and the advancement of technology making more and more of us redundant) and the outright abandonment and betrayal of the American middle class by the Masters, this is, indeed not the Republic it once was.

    Should any of us expect that or even wish for it?

    Times change. The Republic needs to change.

    Term limits for Congress?

    We're still pretty young as a republic and 'America' is still the best idea for a crossroads of the world market place. Where else on the planet do Protestants and Catholics work and play along side Shiites, Sunnis and Hindus in what can only be described as 'harmony' when compared to the homelands of each?

    Just by surviving the first 2 waves of wealth consolidation in this republic as a democracy is reason for great hope in our economy of the future. Surviving as a democracy into the age of The Internet pretty much guarantees prosperity going forward.

    Once we adopt some sort of term limits for congress, the upper middle class will take over from the ruling elite and they know both the value of profit in exchange for risk as well as the value of a working class market with a few coins in their pockets.

    Keep buying stock in the companies you do business with.

    If a person sees America's congress in a Pink song, Carlin must be right! Maybe Wisconsin will turn it around?

    Why does the left hate the Tea Party so much? Disappointmnt about losing the election? Tea Party activists look like choirboys compared to the rabble that's disrupting the Wisconsin government. A democrat congressman, perhaps thinking of the good ol days when liberals burned the Flag in the street, recommended that the unions "get bloody". You know that is code for violent demonstrations. Tea Party people put pressure on republicans. The left should love them or at least ignore them but left has a overwhelming need to hate, it's the only thing that keeps them going.
