Wordless Wednesday


The House is in session to vote on a new budget....during their three day work week. Earning their tax free perks, lifelong health care, retirement packages. Let's not forget that they also vote in their own raises. Playing solitaire, updating facebook, checking the scores on a ballgame.


I know you have all probably seen this before but it is worth a reminder to all of us. What say you voters?

I get upset every time I think about it.Elections are a farce also.Al Gore won the popular vote for President.If they had let him in,I don't believe we would be fighting in Iraq.

Even though it's funny, it also makes me mad!

Grace said...

that's a hoot...they're just ordinary folks doing their ordinary jobs...

It would be so nice if the American public could get a few of those perks for doing nothing. Politicians are the most double talking useless humans I know.

Looks an awful lots like my office actually. At least they're not sleeping.

Stacie said...

That is priceless. It really irks me that when they leave they still get paid. It totally sucks!

SO frustrating to me!! While I can respect that they do have difficult decisions to make and their job is probably much harder than any of us realize, this doesn't help their cause any, not make them believable...
I am a mother of 3 and can multi-task very well, but put me in front of a game of Solitaire and my focus and listening ears are slim to none... And I'm not helping to decide the fate of our country... Nice

Wow, that's all I got, wow.

This is distressing on so many levels. Our entire system needs overhauling!!!!

Maria @ Conversations with Moms said...

That's hilarious. We wonder why it takes so long sometimes to make decisions.

Why am I not surprised?

I'm just here via WW & Club BeetleBop. Now I think I'll branch out a bit and meet your WW-ers!

Hey, members of the Congress and the Senate are just like me--lazy, ne'er-do-wells! :)
