What do Aquaman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman have in common? They would all be too embarrassed to have their names associated as Super Friends of the Congress’s Super Committee.
I would personally like to see Wonder Woman lassoo the “Rope of Truth” around a few of that committee’s most august members and get some answers: Why did you agree to join this fake committee!? How many Cuban cigars did you guys smoke? Was there a birthday cake and did anyone pop out of it? oh and is Senator Patty Murray really more economically illiterate than Mary Landrieu!?
Seriously folks I do not know who I feel more sorry for, my children who will live their entire lives +5000 years to pay back the debt this criminal enterprise called the Federal Government has racked up or the 16% of naive souls who believed the Super Friends were going to “solve” our spending problem.
Let me be frank New Orleans, there is no solution nor is there a “reform” that can repair our version of a national democracy save for a return to what made her the envy of the world: dismemberment, dissolution or in Y’at speak “break ‘em apawt, dawlin’!”
Back in 1801 when Thomas Jefferson was inaugurated president some European loudmouths were making fun of our new republic saying it was too divided up and too small for it to become a “playah”. Replied the sage of Monticello, “The world’s best hope, [does not need] energy to keep it together. I believe this, on the contrary, the strongest Government on earth.”
That government spent around 1% of the continent’s GDP and was able to be fruitful and even expand mightily with the Louisiana Purchase. It did so without a Super Committee or fake attempts to “sequester” spending cuts.
And were he alive today, I wager that Jefferson would be too embarrassed to have his name and likeness associated with this Super Sized Democracy.
