Shovel Ready?

I have spent the summer in a blue funk... watching T.V. and watching Congress pass legislation without reading the bills or knowing what a mess the outcome would be. I feel so helpless and unimportant. They are on vacation now, so the danger of America circling the drain is avoided for another month. I found this quote today....


"If you can't convince them, confuse them."
- President Harry S. Truman

Looks like old Harry knew the score way back then!
I don't know about you...but, I AM NOT SHOVEL READY, YET!

Has Congress "always" been this way, or has the media coverage ie. (NON_STOP 24/7) just make it seem how stupid we can be?

John is correct...Democracy is sloppy. Congress has always been this way. Only through technology do we get to see it in action. Cheers!!

I hadn't heard that Truman quote before. Hah!

I'm sorry to read that you've been in a funk. So many people are politically upset these days......

Hugs,

Betty

Holy crap, I came to your blog to say I agree with Matt Man. He is correct, the difference is that now with 24/7 news on Fox a movement has started to change the way it has always been.

Actully I stopped in to tell you I saw "Song of the South" in the Fox Theater in Atlanta, late 1946. I was 9 years old.
