The more I think about this story the more pissed I get. President Obama just addressed Congress on a whole host of important issues that affects MILLIONS of people. There has got to be better things Congress can be spending their time on other than this. There has just GOT to be. They seem to have more pressing issues to worry about than monkeys as pets in my opinion.
Millions of people are out of work, losing their homes everyday. We are actively fighting a war in two different countries. Yet, Congress thinks it is an appropriate use of their time to limit the interstate trade of primates. Let's just think on that for a minute. Who is affected by this? So far just idiots who want to buy monkeys. And really, its natural selection. These people think they can handle it? Let them live with the consequences.
Millions of Americans are in economic distress and Congress sits around with their thumbs up their asses for MONTHS. Conversely, ONE WOMAN in Connecticut is mauled by a monkey that she bought (because she lives in Connecticut and has nothing better to spend money on) and they pass legislation in a timely manner (with a vote of 323-95).
What. The. HELL?! Seriously, guys! Govern. Will you please just govern with laws that affect more than a tiny minority of the population? I don't think its too much to ask.
