#2 I always liked the idea of moving the Capitol to some tents in the middle of Kansas.

#4 Move them all into a tent city at Area-51. No AC. It is racist after all.

#5 No DarthVader, the AC was sexist. The camera was racist.

I know, high virtue is confusing to us conservatives.☺

#6 That's why Death Valley is better. Each congresscritter will get their own glass jar, which will be locked. They can used CCTV to conduct business. Twice a day they will get food and water. When their term is up, we'll let them out.

#7 ^ Harrumph! We are terrified -- I say, terrified -- at the prospect of this outrageous and inhumane internment in the desert from which we would surely never return... tanned, rested, and inveno-- I say, I say, invigorated!

#8 Look up District of Columbia retrocession and read that since 1839 (!!) there have been proposals to dump that mess back in Maryland's lap. They are disenfranchised, fine!, they can become citizens of Maryland and Problem Solved!

But that isn't what they want, obviously...

#10 The government gave Arlington back to Virginia after the Civil War. They could give most of the District back to Maryland - make it part of Prince George's and Montgomery Counties. Keep the central federal district around the mall, with the Capitol, White House, monuments, etc as a FEDERAL district.

Maybe then the people in the District could stop whining about "Taxation without Representation".
