Is someone walking around the halls of Congress right now and passing around copies of that classic book titled, “Incredibly Stupid Ideas That Will Actually Make Things Much, Much Worse in a Hurry (for Idiots)?”
(Editor’s Note: That’s not a real book title.)
Because it sure feels that way, ever since the mostly peaceful Trump protests took place at the US Capitol on Eric Trump’s birthday (January 6th).
You might think that “lowering the national temperature” would be a goal of the Members of Congress right now, after millions of Americans expressed their disgust and revulsion against the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral college “victory.”
Wise leaders would pause for a moment after the peaceful protests on January 6 and think, “We should be fully transparent and open right now, and conduct a full audit of the votes in the last November elections, just so that everyone can see how honest and transparent and honest and totally above-board and honest Joe Biden’s victory really was!”
But that’s not what Congress is doing right now. They’re doing the exact, 180-degree opposite of the wise, smart and correct thing in this situation. If the Norse trickster god Loki were real, he would be watching the actions of the US Congress right now and taking notes on how to make stupid decisions to infuriate an entire population EVEN MORE.
Because that’s what Congress is doing. Check out this video for the latest insanely stupid idea from people who were supposedly elected to represent YOU in Washington, DC. This is an even dumber idea than Congress is usually able to come up with. (Yes, it’s that bad.)
