Congress accomplishes nothing

When people get together to talk politics these days, they immediately take a "U turn.” Why? Because of our uncontrollable, inept, screeching, screaming, twisting, unintelligible, unpredictable, irrational, self-programed, neurotic and immature men and women we purposely sent to Washington to represent us. Was that a mistake? What do you think?

When a supposed intelligent law-making human being cannot tell the difference between clear and precise linear thinking and a how to order a hamburger on their own in a local restaurant, something is seriously wrong. As incomprehensible as that may seem, try asking your local legislator to go find you one.

So what exactly am I getting at? It is this. With all the back-and-forth bickering that goes on in Congress, by both parties, it’s like intentionally beaning a batter and beaning the next one and the next one, so on and so forth. And, my friends, no one ever won a ball game doing that.

Thank God we have The Newnan Times-Herald’s editorial pages to straighten all these things out for us or we would all go mad.
