Happy New Year!!! It better get better, as anything worse would be unacceptable. As kids, we could never have imagined the total chaos we have now. And who could have thought that greedy monsters could "buy" their way to power, in the 21st century? Not in a literate "free" society, where people are educated and sophisticated. How could this happen? We can't even overthrow them, & use the guillotine like in the "good old days." (We'd all probably get arrested for "littering").
I can't take another year where the usual morons can "shut down the government" for any stupid reason they can dream up, and get away with it. FROM NOW ON, ANYONE ELECTED TO OUR GOVT, WHO REFUSES TO GO TO WORK, CAN EXPECT TO RECEIVE NO PAY FOR ANY DAYS or WEEKS ABSENT from their offices, UNLESS EXCUSED by the Chief Executive DOCTOR, or their UNDERTAKER. (Also, there should be a punishment for trying to suppress legitimate govt activity). It was never written into the Founders documents about shutting down the govt, ever for any reason. Therefore it is a violation against the People's rights-to-have-a-govt-in-operation-at-all-times, doing their WORK. Only the slimey GOP crooks, who are too stupid to do their actual work, have to "skip school" to avoid letting people see their stupidity in full color on C-SPAN, and other networks. (Plus it gets really boring to sit there pretending to be doing something -- even if only trying to understand what it going on there in Congress). So they make new excuses every year to "play hookey" so they don't get expelled. Plus, they still get their FULL SALARY for playing hookey, which would never happen if any of US workers evacuated our duty station. New Rules MUST be made, so seditionist GOP cannot take a huge vacation at taxpayers expense. And keep in mind, each GOP Senator and Congressman makes $174,000 dollars per year, for sitting on their butts and trying to find ways to overthrow & betray our govt, plus deprive U.S. citizens of all their benefits, & spend all our tax money on more stupid wars, (where they will cash in on stockmarket investments in bombs, & war machines + OIL). Meanwhile these same GOP "wizards of Wall Street" do not know even basic 5th grade Science, to understand Climate Change, and Evolution, and they obviously do not know about Birth Control, & that Women (in the 21st century) should have EQUAL status as men in the workplace and in the home. Here is that subject in a nutshell: The day that MEN can give birth to babies, THEN they will have the right to tell us what we can (or cannot) do with our own bodies. But, so far, in all history, it has never happened yet.
