When The Framers Of The US Constitution . . . Created the United States of America, their Idea, was that all Representatives (House & Senate), other than Appointed Bureaucrats, Would Be Part-Time Politicians.
The Concept Was – That These Elected Men . . . (Women To Follow) would Come to Washington for a Short Period of Time. They would Debate the Issues, Vote on how they wanted America to Proceed, Turn their Agreed-Upon Decisions over to the Bureaucrats, then Go Back to their Home States to Farm, Work in their Business(es), Professions . . . or Spend their Retirement.
But They Were Never Supposed To Be Professional Politicians.
I’m not even Sure if Most of the Original Politicians even Surmised that Politicians Could, Would, or Should Sit in Congress in Perpetuity . . . But Like It Or Not – That’s the Government of America Today – And Regrettably for Me and my Countrymen, that’s also the way of the Government in Canada.
12th District (Detroit) . . . One Of The Most Failed Districts In America.
TO ME . . . 86-Years In Government, in the Same District, by the Same Family, is a Slap in the Face to the Dreams & Intentions of the Constitutional Framers.
And Instead Of It Being Against The Law Of Reason & Common Sense . . . The Current Members of Congress, Senators & House Members – Democrats & Republicans Alike, have for the Past Week Celebrated the Long Life in Congress of Recently Deceased Congressman John Dingell.
John Dingell’s Father – John David Dingell Senior, Sat in the House of Representatives from 1933 to 1955 . . . That’s 22-Years.
The Recently Deceased Congressman, John Dingell (Junior), Sat in the House (Same Seat) from 1955 to 2014 . . . That’s 59-Years.
And Now . . . Debbie Dingell, the Widow of John Dingell, who was 26-Years Younger than her Husband – HAS ASSUMED THE FAMILY SEAT SINCE 2014.
And People Want To Know What’s Wrong With American Politics?
It’s Remarkable, Abysmal & Insulting . . . every time I hear a Politician, or a Media Schmuck Refer To The Incredible Sacrifice Made By This Politician Or That Politician Because of His Or Her Public Service.
THE REAL SACRIFICE . . . Is Made by all the Poor Taxpayers – Schlepps Like You & Me who, through our Obscene Taxes, PAYS FOR ALL THESE PARASITES . . . To Do Very Little, By Doing Very Little – Very Poorly, Pretending How Tough It Is For Them To Be “Serving” The People.
I Wish I Was Earning Close To $200,000 Per Year – with all Manner of Tax-Free Benefits & Deductions, Free Travel to Virtually Everywhere, Free “Cadillac” Healthcare, A Scaled-Down By Half Work-Year, No Boss To Tell You What To Do . . . And An Unbelievable Pension After Being Finished Screwing With The People’s Money.
And When I Write No Boss To Tell You What To Do . . . That’s only a Half Truth. Because, if you’re an American Politician – Your One Boss is your Sugar Daddy, who Pays for you to get Elected, in Exchange for your Lobbying Vote.
The Other Boss, Specifically in Canada, is the Party Leader, who expects you to Stay out of the Public Eye, Keep Your Mouth Shut, and NEVER go Against the Party or the Party Leader.
And Whether In Canada Or The USA . . . THE FIX IS IN, and no Politician in Either Country is ever Going to Willingly Surrender the Political Entitlements, Wealth, Faux Prestige & all the Razzmatazz . . . before his or her Nest has been Sufficiently Feathered.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez . . . is What Conservative Dreams are Made of, SO-MUCH-SO, that it’s Hard for me to Know where to Begin to show Ocasio-Cortez the Depth of My Love & Gratitude, for Finally Illustrating just how Insane the Government is . . . And How Treacherous The Democrats Are To The American Dream.
When I Write That Ocasio-Cortez Is Like A Venereal Disease . . . The Horror-Story Gift That Keeps On Giving – I’m Not Joking.
Because Of Ocasio-Cortez . . . who is as Dumb as a Rock, and as Self-Centered as the Evil Witch, who Kept looking into the Mirror – Repeatedly Asking . . . Mirror Mirror On The Wall . . . WHO’S THE “DUMBEST” OF THEM ALL . . . while all the Democrat President Wannabes Try to Prove that they’re as Dumb, if not Dumber than Cortez Herself.
And Who’s About To Have a Coronary Watching This Slow-Motion Disaster? – Pelosi.
C’mon . . . How Can We Not Love This Cortez Gift That Keeps On Giving?
