Got any spare change for Johnny Isakson?

Why would Johnny Isakson, junior senator from Georgia, join with 31 other republicans and ALL the senate democrats to pass a Continuing Resolution which funds Planned Parenthood, Obamacare, and every other piece of repugnant legislation this President treasures? Of course there is no legitimate reason that Isakson should do this. In order to understand aberrations like this you have to be aware that congress is not really there to represent the American people. Johnny Isakson is there to benefit Johnny Isakson and nothing else matters. The disappointing thing is that he is supposed to represent the wishes of the people of Georgia.

If you look under the rock where Mitch McConnell hides the goodies for turncoats like Isakson, you’ll find some kind of tribute, which some people call by its real name – a bribe. Of course, we’ll never know what it is because the establishment republicans maintain a closed society. Often we are urged to call the office of our representatives to voice our complaints. Sometimes we are asked to sign a petition for the same purpose. Save you time and energy. Efforts like that are a waste of your time. The best you can expect to receive for your efforts is a form letter that is gobbledygook from Isakson thanking you for your interest and some bullshit trying to explain why his vote was “in your best interest” when, of course, it was only in HIS best interest. He might also mention how hard he is working for you when he is in congress four days a week, unless congress is on one of its dozens of month long “vacations” or “recesses.” Let it be known that our congressmen are not overworked.

I hope Isakson is enjoying his term in congress, and I hope it is his last. But don’t feel sorry for him, if he is replaced. He will be well taken care of in retirement. You do know that when congress people retire, they continue to receive their congressional salary for the rest of their lives, don’t you? I can almost bet that when you retire, you won’t continue to receive your current salary – for the rest of your life, will you? Is it any wonder that scumbags are always lining up for a cush DC job?

I see no help for America unless by some miracle we are able to have a clean sweep of the deadbeats who now populate the halls of congress. Maybe a little request to God wouldn’t hurt.
