Our House of Cards

The House and the Senate just added another story to our $17 trillion house of cards.  What that means, of course, is that when the house of cards finally does implode, the cards at the top have farther to fall.

Congress --- the House and the Senate --- proved once again that an unlimited government of men, instead of a limited government bound by law (remember the Constitution?), is dangerous.

Kick the can down the road, goes the metaphor.  And so it goes. Thank goodness Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell were able to save the day yet again!  Congress veered away from the fiscal cliff a few months ago, only to do a U-turn and head straight back toward it at higher speed. 

A government that will not be bound by laws will certainly be bound by men instead.  Our highest leaders' refusal to follow not just the Constitution, but even the rules that Congress itself wrote to govern its own behavior, speaks volumes.

Why am I wasting time this morning writing this pitiful refrain?  I really do not know.
