    This isn't a bad thing. And just look at how Senate socialists have tried to change the rules over the last five years to enable the socialist agenda to be crammed down our throats.

    If the Democrats want to make a Supreme Court case over the House's ability to change their own rules, then the Democrats cannot change the rules when they are in the majority. The House can changes their rules whenever they want, and they have.

    The Senate has a different set of rules.

    In a representative government, the majority rules and the Democrats have minority rights but they are not the majority. I thought that the chair bent over backwards to allow the Democrats to make their point that the rule had been changed and they did not like the rule change. Nevertheless, the Democrats do not have a majority in the House.

    Frankly, I think the rule change was a more intelligent approach to doing business because it prevents the Senate from trying to set the House's agenda.

    The real problem faced by House Democrats is that their leader Pelosi is a Catholic denied communion by a Vatican court because of her bloodthirsty support for abortion. She is out of the mainstream despite her immense personal wealth. She should go because of all the harm that she has done.

    And then the Senate Leader Harry Reid is a Mormon cultist with no cordiality and a frequent stranger to the truth. He reminds one of a Brigham Young or a Joseph Smith, Jr. He, too, is out of the mainstream of American life and he reminds one that the Mormon Church at the highest levels is still antagonistic to the US government and the Christian religion. Look for Harry Reid to be President of the Mormon Church someday, much as Ezra Taft Benson served as Sec. of Agriculture under Ike and then went back to Salt Lake City to become President of the Mormon Church, a 19th century cult and a severe critic of Christians since Joseph Smith, Jr., himself, who once had an armed body of men almost rivaling the total US Army.
