    Contempt of Congress...

    I've often wondered why it's a crime when Congress shows the nation and its citizens so much contempt first...

On the contrary, it is their bounden duty and responsibility to inspire our people to willingly undergo any kind of difficulties and sacrifices for the sake of noble principles that they nourish deep in their hearts. Instead of depressing their patriotic ardor, the people should be inspired to be brave and courageous under all kinds of hardships and difficulties in defense of what they consider righteous and just.

    It might be the cozy little safe spot I've built around myself, but I literally know nobody who is talking about this. My only real exposure to the outside world is my neighbors and the guys I see at the golf course and the Elks lodge. At least round these parts nobody cares what this congress does. Strange days.
