  • Nice reach for the sky inspirational Rep. Cleaver.

    Unfortunately the House of Representatives is probably the last place that comity will find a home. I have been following Congress for fifty years, and have never seen such polarity as exists today.

  • Earl I have the utmost respect for Representative Cleaver. He did not make the situation .

    Surely you've seen the same big changes as have I over the years.The battles that Everett Dirksen had with the Democrats had a much different nuance than do those today. Things got done.

    Until we get the inhumane non-human citizens put to rest the real people will not have a government we can call our own, the tug of war will be between disparate corporate interests, not the people's interests.
