In Latin “agenda” means things [to be, or being] done. So some of our elected representatives in Washington have an “agenda?” I don’t think so.
First, the zeal on the part of some extremists, especially on the House side of Capitol Hill, for shrinking government is said to constitute (oh, THAT word!) an agenda. It certainly does appear they would wreck the train in order to narrow the tracks. Imagine, no FAA to ground the new plastic airliner. Note: the biggest customer for the Boeing 787 is the Japanese, who will soon and again be the country’s biggest creditor. Maybe we can get them to bomb us again, or threaten to. Say, a small island in the Aleutians as a shot across the bow? Don’t miss a payment, and don’t mess with Mrs. Watanabe.
How about no FCC to make sure television commercials are no louder than the programming? I’m not the first to point out that hasn’t worked. Neither does the “no call” list, but that’s a story for another day. In either case, what’s the difference?
These legislators SAY they hate debt. How many of them have a mortgage? Ah, ah, ah, ah; you freaks can’t use a credit card, either. If you’re gonna talk the talk, then walk the walk. All that “debt” verbiage is just garbage designed to strike fear into you and me. I’ll show you fear, when the Social Security checks stop arriving. These “lawgivers” would blackmail and bankrupt us all to prove their point. And if the USA goes down, we’ll take the rest of the world with us. But don’t worry. Your congressperson or US senator will set up food lines, man the electric plants, run the water and sewage treatment facilities, fix the roads, protect our borders, in short fill in everywhere. They have our backs. So what’s the worry? After all, we elected them; didn’t we?
‘Seems Pogo must have been right after all.
