LEMMINGS or REPRESENTATIVES of the PEOPLE?
That’s my question.
AS I continue to get up every morning and check the latest news, the #1 topic is the National Budget.
Oh, and the FISCAL CLIFF!
The latest is that all of our brilliant representatives and even our newly elected leader are just going to “Jump off the Cliff Together” and “Fix the problem next year”
I’m not going to justify this stupidity with any scathing comments or boiling outrage.
Rather, I thought I would look up the famous RODENT called the LEMMING!
It seems that the Lemming is an animal that can be closely compared with our Leaders in Washington. Here are some good comparisons that I thought you might like.
1- Lemmings suffer from over-population regularly.
—–We have way too many people working in Washington, sucking off of the Federal Tit, so to speak whose jobs often depend on their building their own bureaucratic empires.
2- Lemmings are LONERS until they have outgrown their habitat,then they come together to relocate.
—– Our Congressmen would rather be on the multitude of TV shows than work in their offices to solve problems.
3- Lemmings are RODENTS.
—– Our supposed representatives are RATS at heart considering that they don’t care about the common man anymore and would rather wreck our struggling economy than work together and fix the problems.
4- Although Lemmings can swim, they will jump in-mass into water that is too deep and too wide for them to survive,.\—– Our Congressional houses are now run by special interest groups who really don’t care if they lose their jobs, so long as they maintain their stands as defind by their wealthy campaign contributors.
SO, lets just admit to ourselves that we are presently led by the LEMMINGS OF CONGRESS. There are left-handed Lemmings and there are right-handed lemmings.
AND their little whiskers are twitching and they are rubbing their little paws together as they keep watching the horizon for a sign to run for the closest CLIFF, FISCAL or whatever.
