Tonawanda News — All this happens Friday unless someone does something to fix it. But all signs point to Congress following my friend’s advice of just doing nothing. Which, again, is fine for me. But not so fine for those with the keys to the country.
Of course, we’re the one’s who put them there.
See, you’d think that when choosing people to represent us in Washington, we’d pick the smartest people with the best ideas. But you’d be wrong. First of all, those who vote like to go with people who think like them as opposed to people who just think. Second, those who vote are frequently outnumbered by those who didn’t know what to do so they didn’t do anything.
Long story short: Pogo was right. We are our own worst enemies.
So as Friday draws near and nothing of any consequence is done in Washington, remember that we could have elected smarter people. But we chose not to.
Maybe we should all be sequestered before the next election.
