Well to be fair, when would it ever be appropriate to use a vague term like lunatic in a law?

Your question answers itself and calls for the next :

so, THAT was WELL WORTH those THOUSANDS HOURS (total cumulated time) of Congressmen salaries paid on the tax payer's back, WASN'T IT ?

I move that they ban the word

marijuana.. if congress bans the word marijuana then we can move past slang and back into production and industry.

Lunatic

Free Speech!

Gee

we have a fiscal cliff, the GOPacalypse, 22% unemployment, wars... but we can't go and offend any mentally-challenged folks because that would be wrong.

The one lone dissenting vote said they should keep the word because it describes Them! I love it.

Just found this

straight from 1 U.S. Code:
Sec. 1. Words denoting number, gender, and so forth
" ...the words "insane" and "insane person" and "lunatic" shall

include every idiot, lunatic, insane person, and person non

compos mentis; "

I so wholeheartedly agree.

I so wholeheartedly agree.

Someone, PLEASE, fire this congress ! Or stop sending them their paychecks. Damn it.

What a bunch of USELESS, in their VAST majority.

Ohhh, yes... THAT is soooo important ... to ban that word ... at the 112th Congress. Yeah, right !

They gonna do the entire dictionary, then urban dictionary, after that, OR WHAT ?!

At least Dr. Ron Paul CAN sell HIS speeches at 50 grands a piece. And I'd buy them at $1 million if I were event organizer.

THAT is how politics should work. Got ideas and guts to represent the People ? Good. Show you can EARN your bread - FIRST - if you want people to listen. And maybe... vote for you.

But "them" ... rent-seekers ... BLOCK their paychecks.

PLEASE, someone !
