Our "Lovely" Congress at Work... UGH!

So, despite jobs (and the economy in general) needing to be the number one agenda of Congress right now (and newly elected Repubs claimed it would be), Repubs have chosen to draft an innumerable amount of bills on everything BUT jobs.  O...k.

In Charles M. Blow's NYTimes op-ed article, he discusses the large quantity of new bills to be introduced into Congress soon.  Quite honestly, this article scares the shit out of me!

I'm trying desperately to understand why this new Congress has chosen to initially ignore the most important aspect of what they were elected for and what we need (jobs) and focus on things that even their own constituents don't really care about.  Oh... I get it.  They don't really care about getting anything done.  They only want to promote their agenda--regardless of who gets hurt in the process.
We are hurting.  We are in dire situations these days.  Few things have improved, but at least things got accomplished dealing with the previous Congress.  Almost no one is immune from this horrible economy and the state of jobs these days, but they want to focus on stuff like repealing the health care law, chipping away at abortion rights (by any means necessary), stripping gay couples of the few rights they do have (and have fought hard for), creating extremely hostile environments for Hispanics/Latinos (oddly, in states with the highest populations of Hispanics/Latinos), and just in general being asses to anyone who isn't white, male, and making over roughly $100,000 per year.

Quite honestly, this is pure bullshit, and I cannot WAIT for the next election when the people realize that all the crap the GOP promised so they could get elected has NOT come to fruition... or even come to the floor via a bill because the GOP focused on the wrong shit!
Many of the new GOP-ers wanting to take our country back several decades, possibly even centuries, makes me extremely concerned.  Soon, one of them may write a bill saying we need to employ human slaves again.  I'm being facetious, but not really.  Based on the extremely flawed logic they've displayed as of late, I wouldn't put that idea passed them.

I'm not ready to deal with the extremely extended presidential campaigns, but I'm beyond ready to elect a new Congress.  UGH!

WTH!

What's wrong with people these days?  Medical procedures are performed in hospitals and doctors' offices for a reason.

Why would you have butt injections done in a hotel room?

What's the price of beauty?  Apparently, your life.

Use your common people--or at least, someone else's.

UGH!

I'm skeptical...

While the actions of our leaders during the previous administration (GWB) leave MUCH to be desired about how we treat others--especially how we treat others during war, I somehow seriously doubt anyone from the previous administration will ever be tried for war crimes.

When we think of war crimes, we often think of warlords--more specifically, we think of warlords of ridiculously corrupt and broken African countries. (I'm sure there is something extra wrong about that connection, but I'll handle that on another day.)  We know of warlords being tried and convicted, but I somehow can't recall anyone from the U.S. ever being tried for war crimes.

In this new age of 24 hours, WikiLeaks, cameras on every phone or gadget, everyone wanting to be the new, next, hot thing and catch the latest big thing, the truth can't continue to be hidden from us... or can it?

I just highly doubt this cases discussed in this article will ever come to fruition.

How the hell?

How does someone get beaten to death outside of a court and no one does anything?

This saddens me on many levels.
