I can't believe I'm getting so many year-end emails from Congressmen and women who want my hard-earned coins as contributions. The vast majority of them didn't earn the pay they got and it was considered a high point in their year that they actually passed a crap budget and avoided shutting the government down. The government that they purportedly work in. That calls for a bonus? Wouldn't you love a job that consisted of shutting down your workplace at will? Of course, if we stopped working, we wouldn't get paid. Unlike them--they can fall back on what lobbyists pay them to shaft those of us to elect them. May their putridity subside in 2014 and beyond!
