The Unpopularity of Congress - A New Poll

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

So a new poll is out. Is there not always a new poll?

A new poll is out, as we await word of a resolution to the shutdown, the debt ceiling and other political matters irrelevant to Spark (you chose to be my Spark friend, despite multiple warnings not to be, remember?). The new poll finds that most Americans have a more favorable view of the following than they do of the current Congress:

1. witches

2. hemorrhoids

3. jury duty; and

4. poison ivy.

Congress still did beat out Charles Manson and Osama Bin Laden. Finally, Congress is running neck-and-neck with the Motor Vehicle Administration and with the IRS.

Term limits, anyone?

    Would like to say the old Marine slogan, "Kill 'em all, Let God sort 'em out" and the FBI is already monitoring my computer and the NSA because of recent letters I have written to my worthless congressmen...that's what the computer glitches are, I'm sure of it.

    But I just keep praying for them, that someone with wisdom will smack 'em up against the side of the head...wouldn't that be something, They'll vote to raise the debt ceiling at the 11th hour just like they have done in the past and will continue to do in the future. They all need to go!!

    5. vampires.
    blood sucking demons who mesmerize many with their fodder
    and seek to destroy any chance for America moving forward.

    Even as a kid, I endorsed the concept of term limits. And something that controls lobbyists (legalized bribery). I am so disheartened by all that has gone on for so long that I am seeking a cave somewhere to get off the radar. Absolutely love your sense of humor.

    Ok, being that these guys are GETTING PAID during this whole fiasco, even when they weren't working, while those receiving Medicare, Medicaid, and veterans benefits (now THIS one strikes me squarely in the heart since my DS is a wounded veteran and NOT getting services! Can I just say how utterly disgusting that is! Ok, it's utterly disgusting. Moving on.)

    I would definitely say my hope is that those who let this happen should be voted out of office. I am an independent, so it is across the party lines for sure.

    Ok, shutting up now.
