Just when it seemed there was some hope for this country the US House of Representatives passes a $1.1 trillion spending bill to keep their dastardly deeds going until NEXT SEPTEMBER! could someone explain how all these congresspeople can read a 1,603 spending bill and negotiate parts in and out of it. Shoot, I have trouble with a half and half label.
Here is what we get: a bunch of people too inept to work at a real job deciding what fuel we can use, how much extra crap has to be on our cars so it is impossible to achieve arbitrary and unnecessary fuel economy standards that only exist because a billionaire somewhere had a great idea for the least efficient car in the world that needs subsidies just so other billionaires can afford it , not to mention the all important duties of studying things average people can’t even think of to study, sending rockets into space (why), killing thousands of people on the other side of the earth so their surviving friends and relatives will hate our guts and want to kill us so we can spend more money to defend ourselves. I have 1,603 other stupid things they can spend the money on but I realize you don’t have the time to read about them. Oh Lord please don’t let them come up with the money.
Come to think of it, contrary to the bumper sticker, freedom IS free. It looks like a broke government that plays by the same rules we all should play by.
