Is this really what our elected officials in Washington were sent there to do?

HR 2340 Salmon Lake Land Selection Resolution Act

H. Con. Res. 290 Expressing support for designation of June 30 as "National ESIGN Day"

H Res 1491 Congratulating the University of South Carolina Gamecocks on Winning the 2010 NCAA Division I College World Series

H Res 1460 Recognizing the important role pollinators play in supporting the ecosystem and supporting the goals of and ideals of National Pollinator Week

H.Res.1446: Recognizing the residents of the City of Tracy, California, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the city's incorporation, for their century of dedicated service to the United States.

H.R.5395: To designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 151 North Maitland Avenue in Maitland, Florida, as the "Paula Hawkins Post Office Building"

H.Res.1244: Recognizing the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition for its now five-year effort to promote cyber security curriculum in institutions of higher learning

H.Res.1439: Congratulating the Chicago Blackhawks on winning the 2010 Stanley Cup Championship.

H.Con.Res.285: Recognizing the important role that fathers play in the lives of their children and families and supporting the goals and ideals of designating 2010 as the Year of the Father

All of these things were voted on in the past month in the House. Is this really what we need to be spending time doing? It seems like it's a way to justify their jobs with the voters, but really seems unnecessary for the United States Congress to be wasting time researching, writing, editing, proposing, getting through committee and voting on the floor on.

Do you think this is what the Founding Fathers intended when they set up the government?

Update:

That's the problem. There is no smoking gun. It's just....minutiae. It's paperwork. It's meaningless crap that costs taxpayers money. It's the equivalent of TPS reports.

    I see nothing wrong with any of that...... I was expecting some kind of "smoking gun" on there, but alas, there was not one.

    While it is minutia pointless stuff, its also nothing new. Bills like this have been passed dating all the way back to the founding fathers.... Not all of government is made up of useful big, groundbreaking bills. (thankfully)

    they don't know how to fix the economy or jobs. they are doing busy work to try and justify their pay and all the government workers who research these important items. LOL
