After coming out of my flu induced stupor, I decided to take a look at the news headlines to see what I had missed. I found that our government had again shut down. Which begs the question, 'I wonder what life could be like if Congress were populated with grown-ups instead of toddlers?'
I have seen children who were much better behaved than those who make our laws. The back biting, name calling, blame assigning, complete with posters and charts, is astounding. I can't help but equate their behavior with a three year old who is on the floor, kicking and screaming because they can't have their own way.
I think we should limit Congress to sessions lasting only three months out of the year. This would give them ample time to deal with the problems our country is facing without giving them the time to waste on posturing, rhetoric and outright lies. They would be forced to work together rather than spending so much time arguing and tantrum throwing for their pet causes.
It is way past time for politicians to remember who voted for them and why.
