Good evening, Netizens...


Here we have cartoonist David Horsey taking a well-aimed shot at the latest GOP feather merchant class of legislators to hit the House and Senate. Although I have been avidly listening to the various members of the GOP, both Tea Party members and those not, I cannot help but be fascinated at all the lofty-sounding predictions of what they are going to do in the near-future. Things such as scratch Obamacare off the map leaves me aghast and laughing. My belief is that both parties are equally adept at accepting legalized bribe money, freshmen or not.


I was also mildly amused at the fact the Republicans read the entire Constitution of the United States into the public record. My goodness, according to several sources, the Constitution has never been read into the House record. The reading also skipped the 18th Amendment that was ratified in 1919 to institute prohibition of alcohol. That amendment was overturned in 1933 by the 21st Amendment.


So we march onward into an uncertain future, with the same bunch of lobbyists dispensing monies from the public till. We have the best Congress that money can buy.
