Congress in Action!

While the U.S. economy is verging on the brink of another recession, unemployment is mired at 9% (the actual rate being much higher), multiple wars are still being waged around the world costing billions of dollars per day, and with a national debt of $14 trillion looming ever more forebodingly over global bond markets, what’s the Congress up to?

Yep, they’re assigning honorary names to local post offices across the country.

That U.S. representatives in Congress spend one iota of their limited time (you know, when not out shamelessly fundraising for their next election campaign) on such frivolous nonsense is completely insane.
