    FYI - The bill attempting to change the law regarding Coast Guard Academy appointments, going to a nomination system, was re-introduced in Congress again last week.

    So, apparently this has come up in the past and been defeated or somehow it didn't come to a vote. I find it hard to believe since it seems to me they will naturally want to increase their own power. How did it fail to pass in the past?

    Congress is truly idiotic.

    But there are some who see the light and vote this down.
