Bill introduced to repeal the 22nd Amendment, Remove term limits for President

There is legislation proposed in the house to repeal the 22nd Amendment.  This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.  This was proposed in January 2009, and was referred to committee in February 2009.  To date no action has been taken on this bill, but the fact that it is out there sitting in committee is FRIGHTENING.

Grayson: Even If Blackwater Saved Me From Coup, I Stand By Criticism Of Contractors | TPMMuckraker

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), who found himself caught in a coup in Niger last week, was flown out of the country on an aircraft that may have been operated by a Blackwater subsidiary, Mother Jones reported today.

But in a statement to TPMmuckraker, Grayson’s spokesman says the congressman — who has been a fiery critic of the privatization of American foreign policy — still believes the use of profit-driven contractors can be deeply problematic.

“The Congressman does not deny that there is admirable work being done by some employees of private contractors,” said Todd Jurkowski. “However, he stands by his criticism of companies who have been found to cheat the American people, defraud our government, and unnecessarily risk the lives of members of our military, all in the name of making a profit.”
