House Republicans Fiddle While America Burns
Two days ago a bunch of us townspeople got together and passed a few meaningless feelgood resolutions. Of course we knew it was just an empty gesture, but we had a good time. We voted 245 to 189 to tell the House of Representatives to quit jacking each other off and get to work already.
Did we tell ‘em off good, or what. OK, so it didn’t accomplish anything. Make-believe is fun. Smoke and mirrors, illusions — our “elected” “representatives” do it all the time, so why shouldn’t the rest of us?
Unlike the overpaid underworked corporate prostitutes in the linked article, we didn’t get paid for our symbolic gestures. And unlike the aforementioned prostitutes, we hadn’t just gotten hired to a new job based on a promise that we would go to work immediately to fix the economy, create new jobs and put America back to work.
Exactly how many jobs did House Republicans create during Wednesday’s masturbation frenzy?
