74 Members Of Congress Get it Right.

In my post Men In Black I rightfuly had this to say about our Congress.

This bunch of ner do wells we call Supreme Court Justices need to be chopped off at the knees, which brings me to our duly elected Mama’s Boys.
Congress has the power to limit the federal courts meddling ways but they seem to enjoy the abuse, like all good Mama’s Boy do. Could it be that we the people have lost sight of the fact that this bunch of duck and cover nincompoops work for us?
<>I realize I am painting with a broad brush here but the fact is not one of these so called leaders has stood up to be counted yet. So if by chance one does take a stand against the judicial tyrants, I’ll break out the turpentine and clean him up post haste. Until then the wide yellow stripe
stays.


Well, the time has come to remove the yellow stripe from the backs of 74 of our elected officials.

Congressman Tom Feeney, Florida's 24 District
and 73 others from the House have done the right thing. These members of Congress have introduced a bill that would prohibit any Federal Court from deciding a case based on foreign law.

The bill says in part:

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that judicial determinations regarding the meaning of the laws of the United States should not be based on judgments, laws, or pronouncements of foreign institutions unless such foreign judgments, laws, or pronouncements inform an understanding of the original meaning of the laws of the United States.

Does your Congressman still have a yellow stripe?
