    There is a report in today's the LATimes about a USHouse bill to make the Wednesday before Thanksgiving a complaint free day. The bill has gotten lots of attention from conservatives in America. Most all of it negative.

    The bill was submitted by a Democrat at the behest of a faith based group in Kansas City MO. I wonder if that faith based group is conservative or liberal?

    The odd thing is the very same legislation was proposed a few years ago: by a Republican. Then, there was no uproar from conservatives. Also, there was no uproar from liberals then or now, at either bill. Why do conservatives prematurely or purposefully appear to whine at things they perceive as having a liberal bent?

    Is principle involved, or is whining a genetic flaw that is an indicator of conservative leanings? This is a serious issue and not meant to inflame or insult.

    Legislation to stop whining gets an earful -- latimes.com

    Whining? Quite the contrary. My belly aches from laughing. Did you read the story?

    Has the GOP's policy changed from, "whatever the Dems are for, we are against," yet?

    If not, then you have your answer.

    Asking questions is akin to whining? Where did you grow up?

    And how about the exact same complaint against the Democrats when they are in the minority? I do not remember any whines from you about THAT?

    No profiles in courage in either party these days. I would have liked to have met JFK. I'd have asked him a few questions about courage.

    Your garbage in the opening post is a lot more than asking a question.

    Better questions would have been how to cheat on your wife and run with criminals and still get elected.
