HOW MANY SENATORS CAN DANCE ON THEIR COUNTRY'S GRAVE
And in the first decade of the 21st Century, the legislative Upper House of the world's most powerful country works feverishly into the night to determine, once & for all, whether English is America's "national language," or its national "common and unifying language."
I don't even know what that means. And I'm not interested in finding out.
Politics, like magic, has long required mastery in the art of misdirection, but I can't recall another election year with so many distractions, red herrings, pork-filled boondoggles and other such nonsense. As November approaches, these mid-term elections should serve as a referendum on the direction of our country: do we like what's gone down the past 5 years, and do we want it to continue? A vigorous press and a concerned citizenry should force Senators and Representatives to explain where they stand on Executive power, on the debt, on monetary shenanigans, on the 4th Amendment, on our military adventurism.
Instead, they argue whether to build a wall on the border with Mexico, and engage in a massive circle jerk on the Senate floor regarding the status of the language we've spoken here for 400 years.
If only I could filibuster.
