Real Clear Politics ^ | 16 Dec 2010 | JFfingKerry_Served in Viet Name

Posted on 12/16/2010 2:32:46 PM PST by combat_boots

"Lets just chew up the time of the United States Senate keeping everybody up all night reading a bill rather than working on it," Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) said sarcastically of the idea of reading the entire omnibus bill before passing it.

I prefer the Senate reading something rather than voting on it.

Oh, and not all of us can understand Latin. But some of my favorite phrases have ‘ad astra’ in them.

How do you work on a bill if you dont know whats in it? You read then work on it.

My Latin has about 50 years of rust encrustation.

Translation, please!

You might have something here. The bill should be read in English and Spanish, first one, then the other. It’s the PC thing to do. Maybe there should be a reading in Ebonics. Now that I think of it, a reading in Yiddish is in order.

I don’t work on anything new without reading something about it.

I wonder if he even lightly skims through the owner’s manual of new items.

Probably not if he’s spending OP’s money.

He reminds me of the guy who says “Instructions are for suckers!” and leaves six extra screws laying around after assembly.

I wish the stupid voters would wake up or stay home instead of torturing us with their lame picks.

Did Sen. Kerry even deem to pay his taxes on his pussy-boat yet?

Maybe that’s the only way to see what’s in it, is to pass it? That worked so well with the health Care Bill!

And yet Kerry will win handily in 2012. Wait- are Kerry and Brown BOTH coming up for election at the same time?

Note to the lunatic Kerry:

You dullards NEED to read the bills you pass BEFORE you pass them.
I know you guys care nothing for the will of the People, but for your own self preservation think about the mess you created for yourselves by wanting to blindly pass a nonsensical bill.

No, by constitutional definition. The only exceptions are if a special election for one class sinator is scheduled at the regular election of the other class. Kerry in '14 and Scott in '12.

The discomfort and anger that these vindictive thieves would experience during the reading of the Omnibus bill that they will have to vote on is NOTHING to the pain the people of this country will experience in the near future as a result of the Dem’s (and some Repub’s)irresponsible (and downright treasonous) overspending. This Omnibus bill is atrocious, and they all involved in its writing should be ASHAMED for the amount of earmarks and the treachery found in those 2000 pages!

If his grades are any indication, Kerry didn’t read when he went through Harvard, why should he start now?

Reading of bills should be mandatory (used to be the case). In some parliaments, bills must be read 3 times.

Translation:

There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise if not (from the selection below) To find fault within the pleasure of pain will not be made public, if that produces offers no resultant good...leave without paying. This is failure. To waste at will, it is expedient to leave. to enjoy a pleasure in the pain will not be published; it is good to flee that whice produces no result...

(NB: very rough translation using several bots to do it......poetic license taken)

Send it to the Dems in various languages..........

Pick a page of the bill. They’ll understand it better in yak.

Aak, aak, akk, aak, ak.

Cicero’s actual quotation was:

qui dolorem ipsum, quia dolor sit, amet, consectetur, adipisci velit, sed quia non numquam eius modi tempora incidunt, ut labore et dolore magnam aliquam quaerat voluptatem. ut enim ad minima veniam, quis nostrum exercitationem ullam corporis suscipit laboriosam, nisi ut aliquid ex ea commodi consequatur? quis autem vel eum iure reprehenderit, qui in ea voluptate velit esse, quam nihil molestiae consequatur, vel illum, qui dolorem eum fugiat, quo voluptas nulla pariatur?

The version you cite is the one used by typesetters. It isn’t supposed to mean anything — that way the eye focuses on the type rather than the meaning.

Yeah. The Lorum ipsum template...

I was interested to note that part of it actually meant something. I should have specified that.

A NAFTA reading would need English, Spanish and French.

How can we maintain the confidence of our primary trading partners unless we are willing to read our legislation before we pass it.

My goodness, they must think we are exceptionally stupid with this "we cain't read" stuff.
