We pay these people. For what??!??!

  On December 3, 2013, with only seven working days left in the year (only 83 working days, remember?) the Committee on Science, Space and Technology in the U S House of Representatives, chaired by Rep. Lamar Smith (R) of Texas was in meetings.  Important meetings with so little time left?  You betcha!
  They were in a heated discussion on the possibility of an invasion by Aliens from Outer Space!  I'm not kidding!  We are paying these people to do the peoples business and we get this clown show.  I could not possible make something like this up.  They're talking about extraterrestrial life and they have not passed a budget for over five years??!.  Sadly, yes.
  They're not talking about agriculture programs, disease, energy programs or changes in the weather?  Sadly, no.

In other news:
  In the coming year the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) will be teaming up with this very same Congress to discuss some Energy Policy.  That's good, right?  Sadly, no.
  They will be working to penalize people who install solar panels at home.  Calling them "free riders" - people who are cheating industry of profits.  Ain't that communism?  Does this sound like an energy independence policy you'd want them to act on?  A policy that puts industrial profits above the free actions of the people.  I thought these people worked for us?  Oh yeah, that's right; money rules.
