“We’re children. You guys are the adults.”

gunsWe do try (not that hard, admittedly) to avoid politics here at Bureaublog, but when things go completely out of control, it’s hard to stay quiet. Today in the Times there was an astounding double-page ad that listed every member of Congress taking money from the NRA and how much they took. Yes, some of the worst, truly despicable monsters were getting millions. But most were not. Most got less than $40,000. A few got practically nothing. Somebody got $1000. Is money so hard to raise that you will sell your soul for $1000? That seems about right for most of the souls in Congress. Maybe even somewhat high. But for amounts like that, our elected officials choose to do the bidding of an unspeakably evil organization that stops even the smallest attempt at gun control sanity. This is disgusting. Truly disgusting. Not as disgusting, of course, as what you’ll find if you click on the photo (from the Times). You’ll go to an op-ed Times piece from October where you’ll see career totals of how much the “top ten” each got from the NRA. Prepare to be sick.

Republican Senators struck deaf

perdueIn an odd moment for the current administration, both Republican Senators Perdue and Cotton were struck deaf at the same moment during a meeting in the Oval. Here Trump does his best to help Perdue back to his seat just after being told by Perdue, “I can’t hear you!” As usual, Trump prefers to help people to their seats with his eyes closed. Sources close to the President said that Sudden Deaf Syndrome is a common occurrence among certain Republican Senators, especially those from the South, North or Midwest, or West. There is no available data on how long the deafness lasts, or if it is related to early onset dementia, as is the case with the President, obviously.  It also makes it very diffiucult for them to hear or respond to questions from reporters.
