What Condition Our Condition Is In

2 Mar

Who wouldn’t want to work in Congress? No bosses. No one to tell you what to do. No one to make you do anything you don’t want to do. Lots of vacation time. Good pay.

If you don’t work or make even an effort to work you can’t get fired.

If you make new rules to try to force yourself to live up to a deadline or to get your work done…and then you procrastinate…like always…and miss your deadlines…like before… and still don’t get your work done…

someone else gets fired or loses their job, but not you.

And then after all that you can even vote yourself a raise.

And even if you do somehow manage to get voted out at the next election and lose your job

You get a nice pension…way more than any Social Security check cashing, entitlement expectant, senior citizen welfare queen with 42 years of hard work behind him or her gets.

And after only 5 years on the job.

Nice work if you can get it, huh?

And you even get to be one of the people who is in charge of the governance of everyone else’s rights to



and pursuit of happiness.

And yet when even knowing all of that still isn’t enough to motivate you to act responsibly and do your job.

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

… you can still blame it all on God.

Nice work if you can get it, huh?
