"Do You Approve or Disapprove of the Way Congress is Handling It's Job?"

by

What to make of the latest Gallup poll
showing that a mere 20% of Americans like the way Congress is doing
its purported job? With a Democratic majority doing a piss-poor job of
many things, this seems to tell the experts that, what, 80% want those
other guys, the stupid evil self-serving ones? Maybe they're too tired and
fed up to want anything but a job? And what about all of us malcontents who want a
better option? Our blessed "democracy" disheartens,
and hope
falters.

"Mankind will never see an end of trouble until lovers of
wisdom come to hold political power, or the holders of power become
lovers of wisdom." - Plato
