There’s always something to report on when it comes to people’s lives and the policies that shape their course. Just because it’s a Saturday doesn’t mean the wheels grind to a halt.
That’s quite evident with the Saturday session, kind of like school punishment, that Congress is putting itself through.
That’s not quite accurate, however. The House scallywagged out of there around midnight after voting for that cluster-fuck $1.1 trillion spending bill.
Is the spending bill good? Gosh, is someone saying they’re ‘sorry’ after giving you a swift kick in the nuts good?
I feel as though we’re really going down the wrong path, but that’s what happens when you don’t have leaders. And old men and women in Congress are not leaders – these are people that cling viscously to their public perches because they can do nothing else. Maybe they used to be able to do something, but they can’t anymore. Really, is Harry Reid going to go back to boxing?
The nice thing with your parents is that you’ve carted them off to the home or you’re about to, or you’ve gotten power of attorney privileges so any kind of threats directed your way are feeble at best, and typically just downright laughable.
This is Congress today, except they still have power for some reason. But like your aging parents behind the wheel or in the supermarket or at the bank, they usually cause more harm to both themselves and everyone and everything around them then they benefit from their actions.
I understand that Congress needs to feel important, that it needs to feel like it matters still and that it’s making a different. Oftentimes it just wants to be heard.
But my God, at what a cost that comes! There’s no plan to address any of the problems that Congress leaves in its wake, and the house is in terrible order. In fact, it’s so bad that it might just be best until it’s all said and done before trying to clean it out.
And it will be all said and done, just like it has been at these times and periods in American history before. Corruption and greed and ignorance and idiocy come and go like crests on a wave, and we’ve been experiencing a rather highpoint of that wave for sometime. It’ll leave a lot of shit on the shore when it crashes, but crash it will before rolling back whence it came, and hopefully where it’ll go forevermore, or at least until everyone’s forgotten or died and it can rear its ugly head again.
