My daughter and I were talking this morning about the do nothing congress and the two day work week.  She came up with the work leisureslation to describe the no work work week.  My suggestion was to take it one step further.  

For any other American the work day would be from 8:00 am to 5 :00 pm and the typical days of work Monday through Friday.  So... I'm proposing that congress do the same thing.  Also, since we are the employers of congress I suggest that we keep an eye on them.  If you notice your representative at the mall, the bar, the bowling alley, the golf course or any other place they should not be on any given Monday thru Friday from 8:00 and to 5:00 pm just snap their picture.  Now someone that is a lot more tech savvy than I am can set up a web site and we can begin to post the representatives enjoying their leisureslation time on our dime.  

I have never in my life said to anyone the words I pay your salary, no matter how bad our encounter was, but this really gauls me.  We have been in the worst straits since the Great Depression and all these guys and gals can think of is to go home and not do their jobs.  If you or I did that we wouldn't have been fired ages ago.  

The congress is supposed to work for the country not for the few who think they own it.  
If we don't put pressure on these people to do our bidding then it's game over.  The only thing left to do is shame them into working for us, the revered taxpayer, who as of the past two years is getting nothing for something.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
