Congress is Smart, Frugal

Reflecting the bountiful harvest that was 2008, Congress has given themselves a raise.

To be fair, they didn’t vote to give themselves a raise; the raise was automatic.  Years ago Congress approved a bill that gave them an automatic raise every year.   So, they would have to actually vote to suspend their yearly raise.  Wait, did I say to be fair?  Fair?  Fuck fair, these bastards are steering the ship straight into the vortex and they’re giving themselves a raise!  They just handed over more than a trillion tax payer dollars to international banking conglomorates and rich bankers with golden parachutes!  Campaign donations anyone?  “Fuck it, lets just give ourselves a raise.”  Anyone ready to form a lynch mob?

  1. I like and respect your blog. Would you consider exchanging blogroll links?

    I don’t care about whether blogroll links and comments agree or disagree with my views as long as they are witty or intelligent, and your blog is both!!

    The only important thing is that we all have intelligent discussions about how to improve and lift up America for our best possible future, and to lift up every person in America.

    Our future is what we make it, and idiot Congress and moron elected officials have proven by example that if we do nothing, we have no future.

    It helps to have some entertainment, satire and laughs along the journey.

    My blog address is http://franklynchusa.wordpress.com

    Simply name it “franklynchusa”

    My ideological website containing my Presidential campaign that shaped the issue adopted by the other candidates is http://www.franklynch.org

    Kindly please name it either just ” franklynch.org ” or “ Frank Lynch the Futurist “

    With passion for our future,

    I’d rather see people marching in the streets. It’s far easier to protest on a website than show up in the hundreds, thousands, millions across the nation. There’s plenty of outrage: little real commitment.

    Very true. Perhaps the upcoming economic hardship will motivate people (including me) to actually do something, but I think a lot of people are waiting to see how things will go with Obama.
