Once again, just like the other bail-outs, Washington Insiders (Elected Officials, interchangeable terms) are bargaining behind closed doors for the weekend. They are letting the media feed us smoke and mirrors, by reporting "bickering and unrest" and alternative stimulus bills. Alternative bills? Can they possibly mean alternative pork and earmarks? Can they mean alternative ways of ignoring the American people? We tell them we want responsible leadership, and all they can come up with is people who can't remember to pay their taxes or that they have a housekeeper or a driver? I don't know about anyone else, but if I wasn't having to clean the bathroom or fight traffic, I would remember it, distinctly.
