“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

They Feel No Pain

They work eight months a year, get cut-rate health insurance, have a basket full of perks, and, and, they had no recession - pay checks on time, 95% of them have job security, annual cost of living increases, free airport parking, dedicated lines to make reservations, free child daycare, free meals at the legislative dining hall, and on and on. Congresscritter Boner's wages are $223,500 a year plus a big pension. Almost half of congress are millionaires.

Are they worried about that poor shumk that's been out of a job for two months, six months, two years? Do they care about the family going bankrupt trying to pay a hospital bill for a family member?

Congress has not been in a recession - they've had theirs' all the time! - and the Dems aren't fighting hard enough.

Remember the repub's motto "I've got mine - I'm not worried about yours!
