How embarrassing. As a mom, you'd think that your child/ren can get along well enough to play together. You send them off as adults, they become lawmakers and that makes you proud. It makes you proud until you see that they are throwing sand at each other. The only thing is, the sand isn't getting in their eyes or their opponent's eyes. The sand is getting into the eyes of the 800,000 kids around the sandbox just standing around and gawking. They are stunned that the kids are behaving this way and yet, they are the ones being punished while the sand throwers haven't felt the ill effects at all.
Grow up, lawmakers! Get along, stop throwing sand and stop bullying the people who can't do anything about your disagreements! You have 800,000 people without paychecks. I'm certain that you aren't in that group, but would be glad to hear if you were. You have people on the outer ring of that who are affected because of the 800,000 not having work, they can't spend money. If they can't spend money, the people on the outside can make no money.
Good job! Way to tear down moral. Now get along and stop throwing sand!
