Day 252 – It’s Time to Deal Some Pain
Vegetarian Chili – “We are all in this together.” “No we aren’t,” said the corn. “I’m my own vegetable,” said the carrots. “Oh my god,” said the black beans, “why am I thrown in with these idiots?”

I’ve been listening to the talk about passing the bills in Congress to help people.
The Republicans want nothing to do with it. They agree that it needs to get done, but they don’t want to help.
I say okay, then if it gets done they don’t get anything.
Maybe, that’s a bit harsh. Maybe they should get a little bit. I think there should be some negotiation with every Republican Senator and Congressperson. It should go like this, “We understand that you are not going to vote for this bill. There’s a lot of money in it that could help people in your state and districts, but seeing as how you don’t want to help we think you shouldn’t get anything. Maybe 50% of what the people that are voting for it are getting. Okay? You are for reduced spending so we can save a lot of money and get this bill way down by not giving you and your state as much money. That’s called effective budgeting. You’ve set it up as a us against them scenario. I think it will be interesting for you to go back home and whine about how unfair it is. What’s unfair? You don’t want it and so we aren’t going to give it to you.”
