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.
