  •  Who is the worst Despot in Congress? (0+ / 0-)

    This article triggered my anger that I feel for certain members of congress. Being one of the "lazy and indolent" millions unemployed I have searched for words to express what I feel.

    So being a University graduate with years of experience in IT, I was "lazy" and decided to use a dictionary to help. Well, M-W did not let me down. Here is what I found that to me hits the nail on the head about the cuts and BS in DC.

    Thanks to Merriam-Webster online.

    des•pot
    noun ˈdes-pət, -ˌpät\
    : a ruler who has total power and who often uses that power in cruel and unfair ways
    : a person who has a lot of power over other people
    Full Definition of DESPOT
    1   
    a :  a Byzantine emperor or prince
    b :  a bishop or patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church
    c :  an Italian hereditary prince or military leader during the Renaissance
    2
    a :  a ruler with absolute power and authority
    b :  a person exercising power tyrannically

    ty•ran•ni•cal
    adjective tə-ˈra-ni-kəl, tī-\
    : using power over people in a way that is cruel and unfair
    Full Definition of TYRANNICAL

    Notice the circular pattern of the definitions? Any candidates for submission?

    These people in DC bicker and bully way too much, but then that is my "lazy" unemployed opinion.
