  •  I'm sorry, partying while supposedly working (4+ / 0-)

    doesn't go down well with me.  While I appreciate the efficacy of a mass swearing-in, given all the time Congress wastes, I don't know why they shouldn't be sworn in one at a time.
    I mean, how do we expect them to know that they are supposed to uphold the Constitution, if they don't say so from the start?

    The conservative mind relies mainly on what is plain to see.

      Boner by all accounts is lazy, not a hard worker and prefers to blow off his job to play golf or self-medicate at the Capitol Hill bars. So they're just following their leader's example.

      •  The leisure class has always relied on (0+ / 0-)

        the willingness of workers to take orders.  Some people really aren't capable of any practical endeavor and it's probably just as well to let them freeload.  The mistake we make is in assuming they know what they want and what they are doing and then following their orders without question.

        Jesus had it right when He said "Father, forgive them.  They know not what they do."  We can forgive them, too, but we should also know better than to follow their directions.
