Congress Back in Town to Play in the DC Sandbox

61195_600Summer break is over and Congress as well as The Supreme Court are back in the ‘Sandbox of DC’, a sandbox filled with players that for years that have not been able to play together to create results.  Unfortunately,  this fall/winter session doesn’t hold out much hope for anything different.  Congress, The President and The Supreme Court will surely begin throwing sand in each other eyes and the whining on the nightly news will continuous.

Congress’s Sandbox is overflowing:

Millions of Americans out of work

$17 Trillion Debt


Medicare Part D

Social Security



Benghazi and IRS scandals

Out of control government agency spending

and the list goes on…..

I predict when I write my follow up article of what was accomplished in 2013, the above list will remain intact and a few issues will have been added.

The Supreme Court, I have three top picks of insanity.

First, are you a political blogger?  Do you write political articles?  Beware your ‘Freedom of Speech’ is in jeopardy.  The Supreme Court is about hear all about McCutcheon, et al. v. FEC Case Summary and the outcome could take away many Americans to voice their opinions about politics and politicians.

Second, why The Supreme Court is reviewing this blows my mind but their ruling will set precedent for child murders.  Mr. Johnson and the mother should sit in jail for the rest of their lives.  State of West Virginia v. William R. Johnson, No. 12-0120 – Petitioner appeals his conviction on three felony counts related to the August of 2008 death of fifteen-month-old J.W.

Thirdly, the situation of when the Senate is in session or not in session will be decided by the highest court to prevent overreach of Presidential power.  Why the Session dates are clearly defined in a one-paragraph statement irritates me.  It’s an indication of how dysfunctional the leadership in DC has become.

All of this reminds me of when the ‘Sandbox’ was frequently referred to as a ‘Litter box’…

The next few months for Americans will be like riding on a train speeding out of control and at any second a derailment could cause more fear among Americans.  Christmas break can’t come soon enough!
