I’m expecting anytime the first of hundreds of emails suggesting legislators have term limits and that will solve the problems of Congress and our local offices. That’s about as dumb as the bogus statement supposedly by Warren Buffett who said the way to solve the budget deficit is to set a constitutional amendment not to pay Congress until they balance the budget. Turns out he didn’t say that, but I got one too many emails on that one.
Now people take a minute and think. TERM Limits: if you are an elected official drawing a salary for a part-time job and I don’t care how much they tell you it’s full time that is BS, would you vote to vote yourself out of a job? Say you’re in your late 40’s or early 50’s, you going to take the chance of having to start all over and look for a real job?
NOT getting paid until you balance the debt. Really, again, who do you think has to vote on not getting paid? You kidding me? This is not a fairy tale people, it’s the real world.
I already know I’m going to be spending hours researching right-wing propaganda email to prove to the person who sent it to me it is a false hood; too bad the thousands who receive these emails don’t take the time to research them on Snopes.com or Google. Instead they become gospel.
But don’t bother me with such foolishness as something Congress has to vote themselves out of a job….please!!!!
