The folks in DC are DANCING FOR DOLLARS again. I tire of this reality show. Must. Change. Channel.
Today’s sub plot: the furlough cycle for air traffic controllers! Q: Why furloughs? A: The Sequester! Q: Why a sequester? A: The DANCERS in DC were too busy posturing for their past, current, and future campaign funders to do the PEOPLE’s work.
The main plot continues, of course. The DANCERS blame everything on the someone else so they can continue to DANCE FOR DOLLARS, at the PEOPLE’s expense.
This painfully predictable show is brought to you by the 1/3 of 1% – the funders for whom the DANCERS dance. The funders know that campaign contributions have long since trumped citizens and votes. They know unsolved problems bring in cash (pro or con, right or left), so the DANCE (to do nothing and blame others) is renewed season after season.
Change the channel. Demand citizen funded political campaigns NOW. Save the DANCERS from the funders; save the PEOPLE from the DANCERS.
It is time for the people to dance.
