John Boener said in his address to the Floor on Sunday night said, “Shame on each and every one of you who substitutes your will and your desires above those of your fellow countrymen. Around this chamber, looking upon us are the lawgivers. We break the ties of history in this chamber. We break our trust with Americans.”

Many will be watching and looking for men/woman who exemplifies: Honesty, Reverence, Hope, Thrift, Humility, Charity, Sincerity, Moderation, Hard Work, Courage, Personal Responsibility, and Gratitude.

“I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson

This is a disgrace that the president and senate are on vacation!
the economy is falling apart due to the socialist bills they have passed!
after spending ALL that money, the jobs have never been created.
They want to end the Bush tax cuts, so small businesses will be taxed!
That is going to create even more unemployment!
I have been going crazy to find a job, I am even enrolled in 5 Temporary Agencies, but of course, they are hit just as bad as I am.
The health care bill will tax them, the bush tax cuts will end, the financial bill will hurt them, so where are we going to get jobs from?
The President has said he don’t care if he is a one term president, as long as he gets his agenda! Please fire these senators in November!

Re: H.R. 5056
It is important to have diplomatic relations with Iran but the persecution of the Bahá’ís needs to addressed up front and resolved. Iran is practicing segregation or apartheid but unlike most forms of segregation or apartheid the Bahá’ís don’t just have unequal rights they don’t have any rights at all.

Here is a quote from the attached linked article.

“While the Baha’i faith, founded on notions of equality and humanitarianism, originated in what would become the Islamic Republic of Iran, members of the religious community have faced persecution since the republic’s establishment under the Islamic constitution of 1979.
According to the Iranian government, the Baha’i population represents a political sect, not a religious community, and is consequently regarded as apostate. Although the rights of certain minority groups, such as Christians and Zoroastrians, are explicitly protected under the constitution of the Islamic republic, the Baha’i population, estimated by the U.S. Department of State to be approximately 300,000-350,000 of the majority Muslim population, enjoys no rights.
The unprotected status of the Bahá’ís facilitates discrimination without justification within the Iranian legal system. Courts in Iran have denied Bahá’ís the right of redress or protection against assault, killings, or other forms of persecution. These courts have established that Iranian citizens who kill or injure Bahá’ís are not liable for damages because their victims are “unprotected infidels”
