Sure, the economy sucks. Unemployment is at least 10.2% and, yes, if you include part-time workers who would rather have full-time jobs it may be over 17%. The government is showering our cash on Wall Street and burning through piles of our children and grandchildren’s money “saving” phantom jobs in Congressional Districts that don’t exist.
Oh yeah, and Congress is planning for a government take-over of our health care system, legislating higher energy prices and raising taxes. Sheesh, no wonder we’re feeling blue.
Well, not to worry, three-term Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) has found a solution: Stop Complaining So Much.
He has even introduced House Concurrent Resolution 155 to tell Americans to shut up. We don’t want to hear it. The day is set for the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. He probably regrets having to use the term “Thanksgiving” instead of “Turkey-day,” in the legislation. Co-sponsors on the bill are Rep Clay, Wm. Lacy [MO-1] and Rep Graves, Sam [MO-6]. Do these guys really represent the views of the people of their districts? I wonder why Thomas Jefferson never thought of an Executive Order to shut-the-hell-up when the newspapers went after him?
