THOUGHTS ON THE CONGRESS

Today, I’ve decided to print some quotes about the American Congress – that noble group of elected officials who seem to have forgotten who they work for.  Not much has changed since the beginning of our independence.

“Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” Mark Twain

“With Congress, every time they make a joke it’s a law, and every time they make a law it’s a joke.”  Will Rogers

“We have the power to do any damn fool thing we want to do, and we seem to do it about every ten minutes.”   J. William Fulbright

“I have been up to see the Congress and they do not seem to be able to do anything except to eat peanuts and chew tobacco, while my army is starving.”  Robert E. Lee

“I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.”  Ronald Reagan

“If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?”  Thomas Jefferson

“Congress seems drugged and inert most of the time… its idea of meeting a problem is to hold hearings or, in extreme cases, to appoint a commission.”   Shirley Chisholm

“Congress does two things well.  Nothing and overreacting.”  Michael Oxley

“I was ecstatic when they re-named “French fries” as “freedom fries.” Grown men and women in positions of power in the U.S. government showing themselves as idiots.”
― Johnny Depp

 

 

 

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
