I've got a few words for those cowards in Congress and their "non-binding" resolution. Well - they aren't my words and they were spoken long ago at the opening of a cemetery for the war dead, but they are just as appropriate today as they were then, probably more so.

"It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us, that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. . . that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . and that government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . . shall not perish from the earth."

Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863

I just absolutely hate people who start something and never finish it.
