Not A Clue

It has been a while since I last posted. The club volleyball season is over and I am just starting to get back to a normal life for a month or two. But more on that later.

Our state legislature has officially lost it's mind, gone bonkers, jumped the shark, total lost all focus, pick your euphemism of choice. These people, if they ever knew in the first place, have completely forgotten why they were elected to office in the first place.

Our state is 26 billion dollars in debt. We are spending way more money than we are taking in. Our budget was due last week, the governator is preparing to issue IOUs for state spending because we have no money. So what is our legislature working on?

They have three bills that:

1)create a commission to serve the marketing interests of the blueberry industry.
2)defines "honey" to mean the natural food product resulting from the harvest of nectar by honey bees,
3)adopts regulations establishing definitions and standards for 100-percent pomegranate juice.


Why are these morons still employed? Why are they still allowed into their offices? Why are they not at home in their bathrooms trying to figure out how to get tar and feathers out of their hair?

Ignore the fact that the state doesn't need these stupid laws in the first place. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE DAMNED BUDGET YOU IDIOTS??????

He's how to solve this problem. Call the legislature into order, lock all the doors and windows, turn off the air conditioner. Give them a port-a-potty and nothing but chili to eat until they all agree on how to cut 26 billion in spending out of our state budget.

You will notice that there is no provision in that plan for raising taxes, fees, etc. Cut the damned spending! Stop threatening to cut all the stuff that people actually want like parks, police, schools, etc. Cut the waste, cut the liberal bullshit, cut the spending on illegals, get rid of all the spending on climate control garbage, etc.

Until they do, they do not leave that room!

Then once the balance the budget send them home to get real jobs. Tell them they can reconvene for one week every other month. The rest of the time they are on their own. Make them go get real jobs to support themselves.

I can relate. We had several big issues on the table last year or the year before and our state government decided to spend a few weeks determining what our state pancake should be. Seriously?! Then they went into special session to work on the rest of the issues they didn't have time for during the regular session.

Oh, by the way - it's huckleberry.
