House Nullifies Votes of Two GOP Reps. Who Skipped Swearing-In. Precedent established for nullifying POTUS official acts?

From TheBlaze  House Nullifies Votes of Two GOP Reps. Who Skipped Swearing-In. 
House Republicans had to correct a first-week gaffe by nullifying the votes of two of their members that were cast before they were sworn in.
Democrats pounced on the mistake, saying Republicans violated the Constitution on their first day in the majority by allowing the pair to vote six times before they were sworn in.
The House voted 257-159 to nullify those votes cast by Pete Sessions of Texas, the party campaign chief, and Mike Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania. Retracting their votes didn’t affect any outcomes. The two were at a reception when others took the oath Wednesday. They were sworn in Thursday.
Can this be a precedent for nullifying the acts of the POTUS because of a constitutional violation of eligibility requirements?

Did he lose a bet or a dare?

Perhaps this weed psychadelic theme is for a parish in San Francisco. 

If this guy was presiding in that cult of peace, he might have been sodomized then beaten to a pulp for pulling a stunt like this.

I mean, "Just what is his fashion statement here?  I am the primordial goo from whence life began?

Abstinence Rule for Fridays outside of Lent. (like today) Canon Law & USCCB Ruling

From CatholicsOnline:  On the Fridays outside of Lent the U.S. bishops conference obtained the permission of the Holy See for Catholics in the US to substitute a penitential, or even a charitable, practice of their own choosing. They must do some penitential/charitable practice on these Fridays. For most people the easiest practice to consistently fulfill will be the traditional one, to abstain from meat on all Fridays of the year. During Lent abstinence from meat on Fridays is obligatory in the United States as elsewhere.



 
  • Canon 1250 All Fridays through the year and the time of Lent are penitential days and times throughout the entire Church.
  • Canon 1251 Abstinence from eating meat or another food according to the prescriptions of the conference of bishops is to be observed on Fridays throughout the year unless they are solemnities; abstinence and fast are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and on the Friday of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Canon 1252 All persons who have completed their fourteenth year are bound by the law of abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of fast up to the beginning of their sixtieth year. Nevertheless, pastors and parents are to see to it that minors who are not bound by the law of fast and abstinence are educated in an authentic sense of penance.
  • Canon 1253 It is for the conference of bishops to determine more precisely the observance of fast and abstinence and to substitute in whole or in part for fast and abstinence other forms of penance, especially works of charity and exercises of piety.

Paul Ryan: I’ll eat my tie if ObamaCare reduces the deficit



"I sent a letter to the CBO. I asked them, 'well, now look at these budget gimmicks, ignore these budget gimmicks, what then?'" he said.

"This thing is a huge budget buster. So, what they have is a piece of paper of what they manipulated to say this thing reduces the deficit. I will eat my tie if that is the outcome of this law," Ryan added.

Paul Ryan: "I Will Eat My Tie" If Health Care Reform Reduces Deficit

"People around here know how to write legislation to manipulate the kind of cost estimate you're going to get from the Congressional Budget Office," Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told Mark Levin on the radio.
