Stupid Bills and Rediculous Resolutions

Just for giggles, I decided to do some searching on the Library of Congress page for Resolutions, Amendments and Bills that have, or that are in discussion before Congress.

Here are just a few......

Title: A concurrent resolution expressing the sense of Congress that any effort to impose photo identification requirements for voting should be rejected.
Sponsor: Sen Obama, Barack [IL] (introduced 9/20/2005)

Yes, let us not force people to PROVBE who they say they are when voting.
Let's not provide physical proof, we like illegal aliens voting and the corpses in the graveyards.

Title: A resolution apologizing to the victims of lynching and the descendants of those victims for the failure of the Senate to enact anti-lynching legislation.
Sponsor: Sen Landrieu, Mary L. [LA] (introduced 2/7/2005)

When are we going to move on?
You actually need a resolution to apologize for the actions of some of the idiots out there that took the law into their own hands?

Isn't there something more up-to-date you should be working on, or do you just have that much time on your hands?

Title: A resolution congratulating the New England Patriots on their victory in Super Bowl XXXIX.
Sponsor: Sen Kennedy, Edward M. [MA] (introduced 2/7/2005)

I guess this one answered my question on if they have too much time on their hands.....

No, I am not kidding, these are not jokes, these are actual Resolutions brought up to a vote and debated on......

I wish I was joking...

Title: A resolution honoring Pope John Paul II.
Sponsor: Sen Brownback, Sam [KS] (introduced 4/4/2005)

First the obvious question is why weren't there screams of separation of Church and State (Government) when they introduced this Resolution?

Second, do we actually need a resolution to honor someone?

Title: A resolution affirming the importance of a national weekend of prayer for the victims of genocide and crimes against humanity in Darfur, Sudan, and expressing the sense of the Senate that July 15 through 17, 2005, should be designated as a national weekend of prayer and reflection for Darfur.
Sponsor: Sen Brownback, Sam [KS] (introduced 6/16/2005)

Again, why are we introducing Resolutions for a National Weekend of Prayer?
It should be up to the individuals to pray, the churches to pray, not the Government to debate a Resolution for a National Weekend of Prayer.

Title: A resolution designating the week beginning October 16, 2005, as "National Character Counts Week".
Sponsor: Sen Domenici, Pete V. [NM] (introduced 10/7/2005)

National Character Week?

No, I am not kidding....

These persons in Congress and the Senate should be the last people I would think should be introcuding anything for Character.....

Title: A resolution calling on the President to take immediate steps to help improve the security situation in Darfur, Sudan, with an emphasis on civilian protection.
Sponsor: Sen Biden, Joseph R., Jr. [DE] (introduced 2/17/2006)

Let's have a Resolution to protect other countries, to help improve THEIR security, when we ignore our own borders.....

Do we really need all these Bills, Resolutions and Amendments?

Much of it seems to be a collosal waste of time, money and energy that could be used to debate and put together something benefitial to America, something like a useful Immigration Policy? A Border Protection Policy?

Maybe that is too much to ask.

I hear the Canes beat the Sabres over at Sister Toldjah, maybe ol' Teddy Kennedy better put out another resolution to congratulate the Canes on their victory....

And we pay them to be in office, sickening isn't it?
