We’re constantly wondering, we Americans, what exactly has gotten into our government leaders. We watch them bluster and blather. We hear them pontificate and pander.
But do they ever actually accomplish anything? Pass any new laws? Set some clear policies? I don’t know, maybe figure out an actual workable year long budget?
Nope, nope and nuh-uh.
Don’t you wonder why?
Well, I think I’ve figured it out. It’s actually pretty simple.
They don’t have time to govern! These are very busy people!!!
I mean, look what our leaders are up to at the moment.
Yup. The big boss of our duly elected House of Representatives is doing his best to prevent his opponents (also our duly elected representatives) from working to get our votes. He doesn’t have time to legislate.
Then there’s this:
See? They don’t have time for insignificant details like keeping the lights on, or protecting our Social Security. They can’t be bothered with the minutiae of approving or disapproving of the bombs we drop overseas. They’re busy with pre-emptive actions to prevent something that hasn’t happened and might never happen.
These people are BUSY! They have important work to do!
Oh, sure, Mrs. Clinton LOST the election that took place almost a year and a half ago. Comey has been fired. But our Congress is busy trying to root out any possible infraction of any possible law that one of them might have committed at some point in the past. They don’t have time to work together to reach a compromise on little things like the impending death of the planet.
So it’s easy to see that our members of Congress are so busy trying to poke each other in the eye that they can’t be bothered with keeping the country going.
I suggest that we lock them all in a big room and let them play a killer round of “Words With Friends” or “Trivial Pursuit.” Or maybe “Cards Against Humanity.” The winning team gets to run things for six months, then there’s a rematch.
It would save us billions of tax dollars in “investigations” and, God willing, we’d never have to hear the words “Benghazi” or “Pee-pee tape” ever again.
