Yes folks, we need a Manhattan Project for our dear senators and congressmen. with all the lack of progress out of our elected officials, this may just be the way to get congress to actually get some work done. these guys have gotten away with so much, and have given back so little, that i am surprised someone with more brains than me hasn't come up with it sooner.
What I have in mind is putting all these cats in, lets say, a closed military facility, Under the guidance, and loaded firearms, of the United States Marine Corps. They would be subject to rigorous military discipline as well. Can you imagine some of our heftier lawmakers finally being forced to get off their fat butts, and exercise every morning? Now that is one hell of a great idea. They would also have to eat the same chow that our men and women eat in places like, oh, Iraq and Afgahnistan. Just think how fast they could come up with better appropriations bills for the armed forces. They would also have to go to military hospitals for all medical needs. Walter Reed would be the first get a much needed face-lift, as well as fixing the problems our men and women have faced since this war on terrorism began. Maybe ALL our vets would finally receive the kind of health care they deserve. WW11, Korean and Viet Nam vets would be treated for ALL their health needs...did I say ALL ???
Naturally, this facility would need to be near Washington D.C., but just the thought that it could be in Death Valley has me in a swoon. But our congressmen, and women need to be near their place of work, unlike many of their constituents who often have to drive long distances to work, and with gas at four plus dollars a gallon, well you get where i am headed hear. Of course we would have to have assurances that these guys wouldn't jump ship once in Washington, so they would ALL have to be fitted with those ankle things that track their every move...did I say ALL??? Now our elected would have to perform the duties that they were elected to do, out of boredom if nothing else. Gone would be the trips to...anywhere. Gone would be the breakfasts, lunches and dinners with lobbyists. and thour congress people would have to stand for merit reviews, just like many of their constituents do on their jobs. this will be a difficult, but very rewarding task for every man, woman and child in this country.
And what about lobbyists? How would we address these cats? Ex-lobbyist would be great, hahahaha. All seriousness aside, we would have to find away to deal with them, and in as cruel a way as possible...I am not so sure what to do about lobbyists, besides shooting them on sight. Maybe yall could help me with this one. Yea thats it, lets have a contest to see what can be done with lobbyists in this new day in America. Okay, here is our task, boys and girls. Whoever comes up with the best scheme to screw...deal with lobbyists, will win an all expenses-paid trip to beautiful Glen Rose, Texas...no, really. so, what do ya say gang, lets get at it, and be creative!!!
