Threat of bodily harm!

PostBy: samhill On: Wed Jan 29, 2014 12:27 pm

I wonder what would happen if the tables were turned & a reporter threatened to throw a congressman over the railing? Then the congressman said it threatened him because he wasn't asking a question in a responsible manner. I guess taking the time to come back with a verbal threatening exchange is professional. Something has to be done with all these fools, term limits would IMO be the best, for the few good ones we would lose there would be a better shot of getting better over all. These guys & gals are just getting too powerful, even the young ones think they can get away with anything.

So he demands professionalism and respect but thinks it's ok to act like a grade A douchebag?

Yeah, what a tool. If I were the reporter I would've slugged him then said, 'It was self defense. He threatened me and I was fear of my life.'

Politicians like media personnel and lawyers should all be sent to Mars for colonization only to have their rocket run out of fuel halfway there.

Most of them feel they are above the law anymore. I think term limits would be great but you know if left to our governing bodies they will never pass such a law. :mad: They should not get lifetime benefits after serving a single term either. :nono:

Plumb, I'm not all that certain of what they get after a single term if anything but there again they are the ones that make the laws that pertain to themselves, I guess it's all of our faults for re-electing people of that caliber time & again. Funny how when we are all at the very least working good & getting a crumb now & then we tend to not realize what they have done for themselves until the crap hits the fan & they laugh in our face. I am fairly certain that if we would threaten a congressman face to face like that we would go straight to jail.

This

They are all emboldened by his majesty's repugnant behavior. They all need to be slapped down. 2 year max term, $100K a year with no ongoing benefits, no lobbyists. You'd get people in there who actually want to do the work of the people instead of those who want a ride on the dole train.

BTW, this is a two-fer...apply same rules to all professional sports as well.
