A comedy of errors... we wonder why nothing gets done.


Over two weeks in session and our government has done absolutely nothing. Where do I sign up for that gig? If memory serves correct they make $172,000 a year. That's a bit over $3400 per week which would be accurate for a 50 week work year except it doesn't include or exclude in this case the time they are out of DC. All boiled down they spend less time running this country than a first grader does in school (which the last I checked was something like 162 days). 

What have we gotten for all that money spent? Remember there are 100 senators and 400+ congress monkeys in the House. 

After further review I think my head will explode. I went to the House web page to see what these guys are up to. I thought I was viewing a Marx Brothers Movie. The first few minutes of the legislative secession were the usual pledge of allegiance, prayer etc followed by an announcement or two. Then there were two resignations from committees which was followed by a recess (don't push yourselves guys) all in a period of exactly 12 minutes!  This would be like a construction crew showing up at a job site standing around scratching butts drinking coffee and telling jokes then deciding it was lunch time and leaving for three hours which congress did! Oh but it gets better. After a 30 minute meeting they again adjourned for an hour. On returning for just 30 minutes and giving an oath of office to some newly elected monkeys they took a vote to adjourn again. They must have had a glimmer of guilt because the vote was turned down. They worked for a little less than an hour and took another recess for over an hour. Two minutes after returning that they adjourned for the day.

Care to take a second and read the actual record it's all here in black and white for you comedy pleasure: Max brothers run the country   Welcome to Fredonia!

Yet y'all continue to vote for that type.
You've no one to blame but yourselves and given the opportunity, you would be just as lazy and grasping a cunt as they are.

I am not bitter.

Seeing as Harry is apparently too embarrassed to comment "Hail Fredonia", I will do so on his behalf.

Hail! Fredonia!

"Over two weeks in session and our government has done absolutely nothing."

Now that's patently untrue. One day one, Michelle Bachmann introduced the 43rd bill to repeal Obamacare. This should be everyone's top priority -- restoring Freedom to the American People.

No dear I actually do real physical work unlike these lazy bums.

I don't think she was able to get that to the floor, but I get your point Tom. We should all be more than proud to starve to death and die from disease for freedom.
