Congress' childish antics

September 6, 2018

Like overgrown spoiled children, a lot of protesters are trying these days to disrupt Congress by yelling, crying and acting out. It’s been interesting to see how quickly the Republican Congress members have adapted to these tantrums. 

For instance, a Senator will ask Judge Brett Kavanaugh a serious question about Constitutional issues, and Kavanaugh will get about two sentences into a thoughtful answer, and then a lot of idiotic yelling will break out.  Instead of letting it detail their conversation, the adults simply stop talking for a moment while security drags the nuisance from the room and off to the big playpen with iron bars for a well-deserved “time-out.” Watching the hearings now reminds me of watching two parents who’ve learned to patiently time their conversations so that their words fall into the brief pauses between the screams of their terrible two-year-old’s tantrums.

That’s almost amusing, but this was downright hilarious.  Before going into politics, Missouri Republican Rep. Billy Long had a real job as an award-winning auctioneer.  When a protester started yelling during the hearings into social media bias (this was a rightwing protester, sadly adopting the left’s childish tactics), Long responded by drowning her out with his triple-time auctioneer’s spiel.  Talk about fighting fire with fire…or in this case, gibberish with gibberish! That protester should have known that nobody wins a battle of baffling blather with a man who spent 30 years as an auctioneer and the last seven years in Congress.

    Thought there were witnesses that saw the protesters being paid. Sounds like a Soros tactic. That pathetic fool thinks his European tactics will work here. Lydon Johnson damaged this country by supporting dual citizenship. It made it legally easier for people whose loyalties lie elsewhere (like Soros) to meddle in our elections and political process.
    I voted Libertarian in 2016 not for Trump, but President Trump impresses me more and more with each passing day. I will be voting for Trump in 2020.

    I have to say the protesters’ childish antics are no worse than our President’s daily tweets in which he sounds like a kindergartner fighting injustice. I voted for President Trump and am very conservative. My vote “for” him was because I will never vote for a Democrat because of their ideology coupled with the fact that Supreme Court seats were hanging in the balance. I see his many accomplishments and the promises fulfilled. However, these results are drowned out by his foolish responses and public railings. For example, it is more than offensive to kneel to the National Anthem, but they have the same freedom to express themselves that the rest of us do. He exacerbated the entire situation by calling them out with vulgarities. I know he is very different from what we are used to in our President and I do despise typical “politicians;” but there should be some decorum and “rising above” the resistance, which would go farther to silence them than his current approach. He hurts his own cause by his constant barrage and verbiage towards those who are against his every move. Many voters are not going to support him in 2020, if this doesn’t stop. I hope he begins to realize that the American people may not want to know every thought he has 24/7. I also detest the bad language he uses in his pulpits. It’s not a good example for my grandchildren. I am hoping that, perhaps, we will have a candidate in the next election who can get done what needs to get done, portray strength and commitment to what’s right, but handle conflicts like an adult.

    As a Christian I pray for our President and all in authority. It pains me to see the utter chaos these "protesters" are bringing with them. They remind me of the boy in Peanuts. Always walked around raising up a cloud of dust around him. This seems to be the new level of social discourse. Throw up a lot of dirt and cloud everything.
