I know it's a blunt question, but I'm wondering that if a MOC commission mirrors academy's criterion (not even as strictly), why is it mandatory?
That's actually by design. We're supposed to be a weak state. Change is supposed to come slowly. That's why the founding fathers threw in so many checks and balances. The purpose of the Congress is to both pass good laws and stop bad laws. If you are a bill and you can maintain the support of a majority of your peers through the entire process, you are probably a bill worthy of being made law (or that's the theory at least). If we weren't a weak state, the entire system could change on a whim and we'd look a lot like the Brits. Not a great thing in my opinion (no insult to the Brits... really).The word "efficient" doesn't come to mind when I think of Congress either.
Printing costs are high, they were covering their bases in case the bill before Congress passes.Luigi or LITS - the CGA catalog for this year says "Starting in 2009, CGA will use a modified nomination process to identify and select students for appointment." Any ideas on what that means?
Some MOCs interview their candidates, and some do not interview their candidates.The congressman's website says he does interviews, but the Senator's sites didn't say so.. ??? so do they just choose by paperwork submitted??
