a chamber pot for the chamber…

“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain –
and most fools do”

Benjamin Franklin

So in the latest episode of As The World Turns in the life of US Politicians,
yesterday brought us a rather unusual brouhaha on the floor of the House—

Out of step with parliamentary procedure, the House Speaker, Madame Pelosi,
began a rising crescendo of personal jabs directed at the President of the United States
all before she was to make a motion for a vote condemning his latest “racist” comments.

Of which are actually a result from a bit of a twitter tit for tat between the Fab 4 Reps and
the President (see yesterday’s post for a better explanation)—

Since the President wasn’t there in the House, it was pretty easy to jab–
as it’s always easiest to jab when the one you’re jabbing is not right in front of you.
(think Twitter)

And it seems that her jabs actually went against the rules of parliamentary procedure.
Her words were then, in turn, demanded to be stricken from the record by a Georgia Representative—
because it seems that she had broken the rules of procedure and decency by speaking
personal disdain against the President…a rule that dates back to Thomas Jefferson.

Decency, however, and our politicians, do not go hand in hand.
Nor does twitter, but I digress…

In apparent disgust, Madame Speaker left the house, of which is also a no-no
because anyone whose words come under question are to remain for the discussion
regarding said break of procedure.

But it matters not—the Dems rallied not to condemn Madame Pelosi but rather the President…

And yes, will someone please take his phone away from him…

But in all of this, here’s the thing…

If our nation can spend months chattering and salivating about a president having oral sex
in the oval office with an impressionable young White House intern and in turn,
wag his finger on national television denying what turned out to be truth…
and is now considered nothing less than a rock star…
then a trite twitter tit for tat does not truly have the worth of wasting the time of the
House of Representatives fussing and cussing one another as well as their president…
but oh I forgot…a lot of them don’t acknowledge him as a president.

And might we remember that Rep Ilhan Abdullahi Omar has spoken unmistakenly
hate-filled words toward Israel and Jews as well as flippant remarks regarding
the attacks on 9/11 and yet she is handled with nothing but gentle kit gloves.

So is it just me or are we seeing a great divide here?

So when my eye recently caught my little antique chamber pot filled with a wealth of pretty little
soaps…a chamber pot that graces my guest bathroom, I had a marvelous thought.

If one more progressive left politician insists on using the words racist or impeach— they
will find one of these pretty little soaps in their mouths…

Just saying…

    I am a victim of wrong thinking? If you call someone a ‘racist’, should that be against PC? You obviously are racist yourself, because you know, understand, and measure value versus the stereotypes that form racism. Thus you are racist when you call someone a racist. From my logic, there is no way to point a finger without other fingers pointing back at you. It seems the Dems are the greatest racists, but they call the Republicans dumb, stupid, and out-of-step – more words based on stereotypes and often misinformation. Or is my logic flawed? Is having flawed logic another stereotype? Throw me a rope; I think I’m drowning!

    • I’m right there with you Mark— if it really wasn’t such a hate filled divide— it really would be comical— but you throw in groups like Antifa and things take a turn for the scary and dangerous— it’s all so utterly ridiculous!!! I’m thinking we just get on the USS Minnow and off we sail 🤪

    Is there a new job description for becoming a representative of the United
    States Congress. I thought they were supposed to represent the people, work for the people and answer to the people of the United States. Instead it has become a playground for divisive behavior including playing the old race card again. Isn’t there more important work to be done? Like passing important immigration bills or rebuilding our infrastructure or anything that even closely resembles work. What are these people being paid to do and where does service to the country come in. What a waste of our time and money.

    Oh very well said Julie! And yes, decency and politicians stray pretty far apart from each other.

    Wow Nancy Pelosi breaking procedures…these people on the LEFT are incredible.

    Julie, I do believe there are more Americans thinking/feeling exactly what it is you are expressing than we are led to believe by the mass media or the Hollywood elites. I believe this is exactly why President Trump was elected. And also how he will be re-elected. And yes, I concur….put down the phone, Mr. President. Perhaps the grace-filled First Lady could hide it from him for just a little while?? 🤣 Hugs!
