Here’s a complete list of worthwhile US Senators

Written by jabinante. Filed under writing. Tagged , . No comments.

Sen. Thomas Coburn (R, OK)
Sen. Thomas Harkin (D, IA)
Sen. Mike Lee (R, UT)
Sen. Jeff Merkley (D, OR)
Sen. Ron Wyden (D, OR)
Sen. Rand Paul (R, KY)
Sen. Bernard Sanders (I, VT)

So chosen as they are the only ones who did their fucking job as a check for the executive branch and voted against the outrageous “National Defense Authorization Act.”

Said act basically legalizes the indefinite holding without trial of US citizens, so long as the current presidential administration says they think you might be connected to terrorist activities.

Seriously, if your Senator isn’t on this list you owe them a stern-as-fuck-ly worded letter voicing your displeasure.

Also, you could hit up your representative to ensure that this bill doesn’t make it any further than our largely worthless Senate.

About this time it’s important to remember that MLK was a whole fucking lot more than “I have a dream.” He was a revolutionary.

I always wish #7 would get played all over the news around this time.

Yeah, it’s all about “defending the sanctity of marriage,” isn’t it?

If anything, I’m just embarrassed I didn’t see this coming. I’m embarrassed I let Obama’s rhetoric of “hope” lead me to believe the American left had actually grown a pair.
