daily moment of anger

Yeah, yeah, I know. But it's hot, and I'm tired, and I have some very demanding people in my life right now.

This morning's "WTF" came from the news: they were talking about how the Congresscritters wanted to ram home the new healthcare plan before the August recess, so they could go on vacation and not be delayed.

Seeing as there have been times I've delayed vacations - or even a time when a family vacation was CANCELED because my dad was needed to do something at work - this irritates me. Or at least the wording of it and the assumption.

Look, I'm not in favor of any kind of government tinkering with health care, but it looks like we're gonna get it. So I would like AT LEAST for the frickin' Congresscritters to spend ENOUGH FRICKIN' TIME studying the damn thing (which they have apparently exempted themselves from being covered by: lovely) and not just phone it in because the DAMN BEACH IS CALLING.

NO NO NO NO. This is not what you idiots were elected for.

2010 can't come soon enough for me, and 2012 can't come soon enough for me.

What ARROGANCE: "We need to go on vacation so we're just going to push whatever the hell it is through as fast as we can. No matter that it's going to majorly affect the lives of our constituents, our voters, and the people who pay our salaries. Someone break out the Cuervo! It's party time!"


Seriously, I bet most working people out here have stories of vacations delayed or denied because of some project or emergency. Shouldn't we expect the same of our elected officials.

Worse. The bastards exempted themselves.

There ain't a corner of Hell hot enough.
