For some reason I am having a hard time deciding what subject I should entertain for a new post. I know there is plenty to talk about. For instance, I could weigh in on the sequester thing.
Well, all right, I will.
I’m sure there is plenty of waste in federal spending. Of course, just as one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, one politician’s waste is another one’s necessity.
Perhaps the greatest waste in Congress is Congress.
I guess another subject I could tackle would be Jon Stewart’s decision to take four months off to direct a movie about a journalist being imprisoned in Iran. The Daily Show is something I enjoy daily and I’m sure will still enjoy it while he is gone. John Oliver will probably do a fine job as fill-in host. I’ve always wondered why they didn’t just substitute a host when Jon was on vacation, especially since he was on vacation so often.
Then there’s the weather to talk about, and the networks have really been talking about it a lot. So, it’s snowing in D.C., so it’s always snowing in D.C. where we get snow jobs year round.
You really want to get some idea of what’s going on in our nation’s capital? Go to C-SPAN. There you get it unfiltered, instead of what some news editor decides you should get. It’s sort of like reading the Bible yourself and not just getting it interpreted by some cleric. In both cases, some of it will astound you.
