“Citigroup executives can be right on the floor with them, handing them legislation and telling them how to vote.”
No joke. Makes me kind of sad.
The banking giant Citigroup announced on Friday that it would move its headquarters from New York to the U.S. Capitol Building, in Washington, D.C., in early 2015.
Tracy Klugian, a spokesperson for Citi, said that the company had leased thirty thousand square feet of prime real estate on the floor of the House of Representatives and would be interviewing “world-class architects” to redesign the space to suit its needs.
Explaining the rationale behind the move, Klugian told reporters, “Instead of constantly flying out from New York to give members of Congress their marching orders, Citigroup executives can be right on the floor with them, handing them legislation and telling them how to vote. This is going to result in tremendous cost savings going forward.”
Not only did the big banks grease enough palms so Congressrepealed portions of Dodd Frank designed to prevent another recession, they managed to increase the donation limitation from $32,400 to $324,000. Hmmmmmm…..
Yes, that should do the job. And if this doesn’t force Obama to back down from his executive orders, Republican lawmakers can escalate by unfriending him on Facebook and unfollowing him on Twitter. If even this fails, they can take the extreme step of having their Christmas cards from the Obamas returned to sender. Surely, the president then would have no choice but to relent.
I recently came to the realization that our US Congress is as effective as a group of zombies. Then a thought hit me like a bolt of lighting on a normally clear day with zombies all around. Some of the Congressional members MUST BE ZOMBIES!
Could one or all of the following Congressmen be zombies? Each said something similar to this, “Failure to raise the debt ceiling is NOT a problem.” Only a brainless shell of a human being would say such a thing.
Here are some special radial isotope photos that show these Congressmen have no hearts!
Even John Boehner is worried.
So everyone needs to be careful out there and question what any Congressional member says. Any one of them could be a zombie that grunts mindless chatter.
Truckers are very upset over Congress. Consequently, they are threatening to jam the DC Interstate 495 aka the DC beltway this weekend. They are calling it “Truckers Ride for the Constitution”.
Truckers are upset over things like arming al Qaeda linked Syrian rebels. Earl Conlon, an organizer of the event, told US News, “We’re not asking for impeachment, we’re asking for the arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office.”
Earl was unavailable to comment on whether that included Republicans demanding repeal of Obamacare for the 42nd time.
Unfortunately members of Congress will miss the festivities because they are holed up in their exclusive gyms while thinking about the Federal shutdown.
Congressional members are using the gym to sleep and take showers but must use the same towels. That is because the laundry service is unavailable due to the Federal shutdown. That is almost as bad as not being able to get food stamps.
Someone commented that Congress is starting to smell like a post Halloween jack-o-lantern.
Maybe the smell will thaw out our frozen government.
We can learn a lot from the Congresswoman from Denver.
She stated in a Committee meeting that Blacks were over weight and poor from eating too much chicken. She also claimed Mexicans were slimmer before migrating to the US because of more vegetables in the Mexican diet.
These broad statements are completely false. The chickens should organize a million chicken march.
We can learn several lessons from these statements:
1. Just about anybody can get elected with enough money.
2. People need to read or view unbiased news more often and not skip the statistics.
Now we know why the young people in the 20’s and 30’s are abstaining from voting.
But young people are our future and must take an interest to fix this situation. They do not have to march on Washington. But they do need to vote, no matter what. Always.
Everyone needs to be better than the chicken by takin’ a lickin’ and keep on tickin’.
