I hope Chaplain Black's prayers are answered soon.

A government body has no business having a Chaplain of *any* faith. Separation of Church and State!

This elected position of a House and Senate Chaplain has been debated and challenged over our nation's history, but it has been upheld by the US Supreme Court.

I think our Government could use some prayers of any faith.

Sen. Harry Reid invoking the "aura" of the late Sen. Robert Byrd, as a sign of how he'd like things to be, shows what's messed up with the Senate and government in general. Byrd parlayed his "leadership" experience as a KKK member/leader into a 50+ year Senate run purchased by his repeated ability to direct tens of millions of federal funds to "make work" projects for West Virginia residents, and the inability of his constituents to care to distinguish between a pork-barrel politician extraordinaire and a quality government rep.

Bravo to Chaplain Black. Our elected representatives (our employees, actually), are not acting in the best interest of the country. The people who need and deserve the benefit of a working government are being hurt the most. Military families who have made the largest sacrifice are facing delays in funding to cover the cost of funerals for their loved ones. Our senior citizens, people turning to Social Security for disability benefits following serious injury or illness. It's time to get back to work, ladies and gentlemen. I mean it.
