They could have shot many more puppies
The jello has apparently confused your brain into thinking that logic and political negotiation have something to do with each other. Some say it could have been worse. Others say at least the economy didn't crash. Still others say elect other people so that Manchin and Synema don't have such power. I agree with those people and observe that it can't happen instantly.
We who are by nature rebellious expect, naturally, that what we're rebelling against was created by a rational system. I mean, you know, we feel reasonable and rotund with sagacity, rebelling against a rational, but wrong, system. But - what is it about rebelling against what we've got now that feels useless, because we're stuck in what will, a hundred years later, be explained as an almost inexplicable sinkhole of history? And what is making me write like a pundit? Help!
