To Read or Not To Read

A few posts ago, I talked about literacy and the price thereof. Well, a U.S. Congressman actually stated in public that there was no reason for members of that august body to actually read the bills before them.

Are you kidding me?

In other words, the United States Congress should simply vote blindfolded on whatever bill happens to land on the floor. Bills that they have not read and therefore can not understand thus become the law of the land and enforced upon the citizenry.

Talk about hubris!

These are the kind of people running the United States of America. As George Orwell said, “Some are more equal than others.” Some don’t even have to be literate to create the laws for the rest of us.
