Senator Harry Reid is asking the Senate Rules Committee to allow popcorn and other snacks to be eaten at a special viewing of the movie Lincoln in the Capitol Visitor Center. Bringing food in is against the Senate's rules, but on December 19 Reid is hosting a special showing of the movie for his fellow senators and their wives.
Here's my reaction: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I would not care in the slightest if they were allowed to bend the rules for one night if it were not for the fact that the rest of us in this country are now subjected to more regulations than ever before. Rules aimed at every aspect of our lives. Rules thought up by members of the House and Senate and employees of federal agencies. From September to November 6125 new regulations were posted by the federal government website.
So you want popcorn Senator Reid when the rest of us would not have that option? You guys make the rules and now you have to put up with them like the rest of us.
