U. S. Capitol – Caution Children at Play – Revisited

U. S. Capitol – Caution Children at Play – Revisited

editor’s note: Unfortunately, from time to time I feel compelled to re-post this image along with bits from previous rants.

Far too many of our Nation’s politicians are sycophants, too enamored with their egos, and perpetually running for re-election. All the while bickering among themselves, ignoring their constituents – the people who elected them, and the Constitution they swore to support and defend.

Our dysfunctional Congress has been busy proving to the world once again that they and this nation should not be taken seriously, that our creditworthiness has diminished, and that as a nation, we are past our prime.

A few days ago as one of the Senate’s egopaths reads his “favorite story as a kid,” Dr Seuss’s “Green Eggs and Ham,” into the Congressional Record, our nation’s government careens toward a shutdown. As of this morning, almost two million federal employees have been furloughed or asked to work without pay.

You can be sure no one on Capitol Hill is working without pay today.

Children at play? You bet.

  1. The perfect photo to illustrate your rant, Ron.

    1. Thanks Sylvia. I feel compelled to dig it out of the archive every so often when things get too crazy in Washington.

  2. Great branding for a political rant, Ron! What’s happening is amazing – and from an outsider’s perspective, quite bewildering that these men and women are able to act so irresponsibly, with apparent impunity.

    1. Well, from an “inside” perspective it’s quite bewildering too. I’m not sure about impunity. I have to believe that what goes around comes around and the voters of their districts will hold them accountable. Naive I suppose.

  3. I’m not an American, but this concerns me too. Put’s me in mind of my father and one of his favourite sayings: the fish goes rotten from the head. Of course I would like not to include Obama in this, but really. What does Congress think it’s there for?

  4. Perfect photo for the occasion. I go from frustrated ranting to trying to ignore it, because I feel so helpless trying to do anything about it.

    1. Funny in a pathetic way. Thanks for your comment.
