Congressional Morons Confirm Our Expectations of Low Achievement!

After the idiotic recent congressional vote on the "national motto", i.e. to put "trust" into a putatively unreal or ficititious higher being as a national guide, one can understand why this forlorn country is so fucked up, so devoid of higher vision or excellence, and also why congress itself has roughly a 14% approval rating. The recent vote for this nonsense, while jobs bills and further spending bills are left rotting, confirms for me once and for all: a) our congress comprises a bunch of useless a-holes on both sides, and b) we are indeed in national decline. No issue and no argument! Case closed!

For those blissfully unaware, the taken over House (by the Tea Party types) took a break from its anti-Obama battles last Tuesday, and with overwhelming bipartisan support (naturally - why would any Dem want to go against "God"?) voted 396-9 to reaffirm "In God We Trust" as the offical motto of the United States, and encouraging the display in all public schools and other buildings. Well hey, why the fuck not? Why not simply confirm once and for all our schools are in such sad, disreputable shape that they're essentially beyond the capacity of human intervention?

Of course, rightfully, the specious and worthless waste-of- time vote re-opened a debate over the separation of Church and state. And true to form, while the Christian conservatives lauded the ersatz vote, secular critics skewered it as yet another omen that this country has lost its rational moorings, and remains headed toward ruin based on embrace of supernatural codswallop while it leaves natural and domestic problems unaddressed.

Defenders of the vote often illustrated their relatively low IQs by statements such as the following issuing from the Rep. Randy Forbes (R- Va):

"Whereas if religion and morality are taken out of the marketplace of ideas, the very freedom on which the United States was founded cannot be secured."

Totally oblivious to the fact that it ALREADY isn't secured, what with more than 1 in 100 citizens locked behind bars, most for petty crimes and more than any other nation (even China and Russia), while 95% of the biggest paper criminals, including bankers, high finance sharks and derivatives shills...other scum...walk free! And even as their predations and theft from the commonweal have left us a poorer nation overall - what with 26 million kids under-nourished, 3 million new homes in foreclosure, and 13 million jobless - with half of them going on a year or more. And yet these overpaid assholes find the time to take a vote on ...nothing but hot gas...and think they're being fucking moral?

They are all useless!

And they all deserve the opprobrium and rejection of thinking citizens, especially the Democrats that went along with this posturing!

Real morality, as this idiot Forbes can't comprehend, isn't measured by elevating god words into a national motto, but by actions. Actions that would include alleviating the horrific poverty in this country where now no less than 1 in 15 Americans find themselves in extreme poverty - defined as a single person living with less than $6,000 a year, and afamily of four living with less than $14,000 a year.

Real morality would be passing a real meat- on -bones jobs bill that would supply the funds and workers to rebuild our crumbling national infrastructructure - from the collapsing bridges and pot-holed highways, to the bursting water mains and sewer lines. But no,....these assholes refuse to do that, preferring to send this nation into the economic crapper in order to try to get their sordid, diabolical party into office while practicing financial "slash and burn" in Obama's America. They might win,..... next year, but it will be a Pyrrhic victory with the nation in total ruin and possibly even depression.

Yes....a great testament to morality!

No wonder you fuckers need to beseech a fictitious being, in order to "help" a country whose political establishment can no longer distinguish real legislative ballast and votes from bullshit!
