Your Congress At Work

We're mired in the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. Businesses are failing at record pace. People are hurting. Economic indicators continue to trend in such a way as to indicate that things will continue to get worse.

So what is the US Congress spending their time developing? An apology for slavery.

And despite making the apology in the heart of our financial crisis, there are those that are unhappy because the apology doesn't go far enough to ensuring reparations so that those impacted by slavery (it will be an great time figuring that one out) can be paid for the atrocities their great, great, great, great grandparents suffered.

This is your Congress in action. This is what they consider a priority.

Note to Congress: Those that are suffering in the here are now are the ones going to the polls in 2010. There will be massive ramifications for how you've set your priorities and your abdication to focus on what is currently wrong in our economy and society.

So, perhaps instead of worrying about such things as apologizing for slavery and about how you're addressed, you may want to focus on the task at hand.
