Senators' Revenge

So, why is the Senate so angry with the average citizen? Senators passed an abortion of an immigration bill that the American public plainly does not want.

Do they know we do not like it? Of course they do! The proof is that Senators who are up for election voted against the bill. The rest of the Senate thinks we are stupid and will forget all about this terrible bill by the time they are up for election.

It is time that we make a list of who voted for this terrible piece of legislation and we bring it out every time one of them runs. Democrat or Republican, each silly jerk that voted for the bill should pay the price for his idiocy.

What irritates me is that the bill would create a new type of protected class of person that would have more rights than we do—without the benefit of citizenship. It is very plain that our senators do not represent us. They represent illegal aliens--many of whom cross the border illegally, steal identities and do not pay taxes.

For their perfidy, these illegal aliens get protections we do not get.

The Senators must mad as hell at us, the people who follow their stupid laws and pay taxes.

But we don’t have to be angry with the senators. All we have to do is make sure they do not get re-elected.

Question 28

This test question for middle school children is coming:

28) Name six homosexual inventors and tell what their contributions were.

All I know is what I read in the newspapers. Very recently there have been two stories about education. One was that many people could not find Israel or Iraq or even Mississippi on a map. The other story was that California’s legislators want to alter children's textbooks so that the sexual proclivities of historical persons could be identified (but only if they are gay).

Am I the only person in the world who sees the disconnect between these two realities? It is embarrassing to reside in a state where idiocy is so very rampant.

Given that a large number of high school students cannot read well (if at all), perhaps from this population come the ones who go into politics. Perhaps these people do not know that the sexual proclivities of people mentioned in textbooks are not as important as being able to read the textbooks or, (and this is connected) being able to find states on a map.

I suppose there is no requirement that legislators be literate. But perhaps voters should insist that they be able to set priorities (even if someone has to read the alternatives to them).

As for the answer to Question 28, I do not know. I do not care. I do not want to know, do you?
