You Can Stop Worrying

Barack Obama stood before a joint session of the United States Congress yesterday and implored them to put aside partisan gridlock and get back to passing desperately needed legislation, to help heal an ailing nation. And Congress listened. Today, after unanimous consent that the bill be discharged from all committees, the House passed, by voice vote, a vital resolution reminding everyone that it's almost the 10th anniversary of 9/11. America's back!

Many people had clearly almost forgotten that the anniversary was almost at hand, and those who remembered were obviously unsure whether or not our elected officials support the troops and hate terrorists. Now we have our answer.

The resolution reasserts the House's commitment to "opposing violent extremism arrayed against American interests and to providing the United States military, intelligence and law enforcement communities with the resources and support to do so effectively and safely."

Good. That's cleared up.
