In Perpetuity To The Folly Called Congress

Look at the faces.  See the ultimate look of triumph.  See what they have accomplished.

It looks and sounds like “Dick and Jane”… sorry.. Dick and Jane.

The ultimate sign of the complete juvenile behavior of our Congress screams out in bold red letters in what has to be the greatest folly yet of mankind …. approved on Monday.

$500 billion will go to constructing a monument dedicated to human folly.  This should be number one on the list.

“From Hannibal’s disastrous crossing of the Alps to Custer’s humiliating defeat at Little Bighorn, human history has been plagued by senseless mistakes, and it is high time we built a memorial to honor that history,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said of the expensive and ill-advised monument. “My deepest hope is that future generations of Americans will one day look upon this pointless edifice and be filled with a sense of awe and wonder at mankind’s utter lack of foresight.”

“To think of all the ways our time and money could have been better spent,” Pelosi continued. “I can imagine no more fitting tribute.”

Being designed by the architecture firm of Ganz & Weiss, best known for their work on a series of dangerously constructed St. Louis public housing projects that were condemned in the late 1990s... the project will take 30 years to construct … precariously hanging over a freeway overpass in Washington D.C.

“Our goal is to create a structure that, like the human race itself, is doomed from the outset and plagued by innate flaws that can never be corrected,” Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) said of the monument, which he claimed would eventually sink into the federally protected wetlands that surround it. “Not only will it be an aesthetic disaster, but it will also require constant, expensive maintenance just to ensure that the whole foundation doesn’t topple suddenly and kill hundreds of innocent people.”

“So far we’ve spent $40 billion and lost a total of 300 or so construction workers, and we haven’t even put in a full day’s work,” said project manager Tom Matthiessen. “It’s been a challenge, but knowing that we’re doing this to commemorate the countless lives and resources squandered by human beings throughout history makes it all worthwhile ….. at this rate, I’d say the whole project should be a total, top-to-bottom nightmare by late December.”

Man at his best … mandated by Congress.

“While I am all for paying homage to mankind’s tragic legacy of imprudence, surely there are more appropriate ways to do so than this,” Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) said. “Why can’t we simply give the money back to the taxpayers so they can waste it all on bad investments, botched plastic surgery, and misguided real estate deals? Wouldn’t that be a more suitable way of recognizing the complete inanity of our pathetic existence?”

This monument will stand in perpetuity for all of mankind to come to know today’s Congress by its works .. for certainly it will have a plaque on it somewhere declaring with pride the source of this marvel?

You voted them in … folks.  You voted them in.
