FAIL: With a Pathetic 11% Approval Rating, a Whopping 96% of Congress was Re-Elected

| |

Congress, for those of you who haven’t heard, pretty much sucks.

This meme is currently making it’s way around the Internet:

1196Congress_meme

And you know what?

For once, this meme is absolutely true.

Again. Congress sucks. They have a toilet-flushworthy approval rating. Yeah. That’s an adjective I just made up to be able to fully illustrate the fact that I’m talking about utter crap. But instead of flushing the turds like turds should be flushed, some of America ran out to the polls like a pack of crazed jackals and OVERWHELMINGLY RE-ELECTED THESE CRIMINALS EN MASSE.

Politifact even did the checking on this one and deemed it true. The numbers could be fudged a little both ways, with the approval ratings skyrocketing as high as 14% and the re-elected numbers going down as low as 95%, but overall…THIS MEME JUST HAPPENED TO AMERICA.

“Voters hold Congress in low regard, yet they re-elect almost everyone,” Politifact declared.

HOW. SAD. IS. THAT?!

Sorry for all the caps here. I just don’t get why the people in this country keep doing this to themselves every single election. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over (and over and over and over and over) and somehow magically expecting different results? It’s a bad horror movie that never ends.

It’s like watching millions of people repeatedly attempt to scoop their eyeballs out with a rusty spork in the dark on schedule every few years. It’s painful. It hurts. It burns.

I imagine it’s like having a case of raging hemorrhoids would be if you lived in a word where all the chairs were made out of starving sharks.

I mean, it’s bad enough that studies show 91% of the time, the candidate not with the most merit (HA!) gets elected or re-elected, but the one with the most money wins.

Because apparently we’ve all equated kissing lots of ass at fancy fundraisers with being able to run the country on sound moral principles and, oh yeah, the Constitution? It’s about what their constituency wants and checks and balances…accountability and transparency and all that, right?

Oh wait, I’m sorry, D.C. Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton had to set that one straight for me:

“You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Rep. Norton claimed during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

As TPNN reported, “Allow me to make this clear: A Democrat representative told the House Oversight Committee that they have no right to scrutinize government. The committee, as the name would suggest, is responsible for overseeing the federal government as a check against abuses of power.”

This woman ran basically unopposed in the latest election, by the way, but somehow she still managed to get 97 percent of the vote.

That’s right. Even though the number of people who voted for her only equal a little over 11% of the total population of Washington D.C., that still means 73,218 people drooled all the way to the voting booth and managed to figure out how the buttons work on the little electronic machine thingy.

Seventy three thousand two hundred and eighteen people. I had to spell it out because that’s a scary large number of people who scare me. To all the people who argue, “So what, the D.C. rep doesn’t have an actual vote or really represent anything,” please tell that to 73,218 of your fellow Americans who still felt the need to officially give Rep. Norton their consent to receive a hefty taxpayer-funded paycheck and a public podium for her rampant verbal diarrhea.

To top that off as I’ve reported before, some 297 Congresspeople have earmarked $3.8 Billion for organizations tied to them or their family members.

Isn’t that sweet? But not “awww” sweet, more like horrible case of Type II diabetes and you have to get your legs chopped off because you can’t stop drinking three gallons of maple syrup at every meal sweet.

This country needs term limits like Hillary Clinton needs a soul. (In other words, bad.)

hillary Clinton

If this picture had sound, it would be that noise Godzilla makes when it destroys Tokyo…on loop.

Hey, remember that one time Democrat Congressman James Patrick “Jim” Moran, Jr., U.S. Representative for Virginia’s 8th district, said the American people just don’t understand that Congress is underpaid at the paltry sum of $174,000 plus benefits per year?

Yeah, that’s because Moran said we just don’t get the fact that Congress is, “the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.” He went on to say, “A lot of members can’t even afford to live decently when they’re at their jobs in Washington.”

Aww…you guys! They can’t even afford to live decently, whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean when it comes to a politician (hookers, crack and payoffs, oh my?).

Boo freakin’ hoo.

Wow. Just wow. What other jobs do you know of where you can only get things right a pitiful 11% of the time and still enjoy an uninterrupted sense of job security?

I mean, even the person who sews extra-extra-small pairs of boots for chihuahuas has a certain level of professionalism expected from him or her and a quota for number of pairs properly put together which must be reached, or that person gets canned. If they hardly ever showed up or never did what they were told or suddenly started making elephant boxers instead of tiny dog shoes or something, they would be F-I-R-E-D fired. Period.

Come on, America. I’m talking to you people who still find it within yourself to take the time and effort to go participate in the dog and pony show that is voting in this country. You know how it’s always said if you don’t vote you can’t bitch? Not true. I didn’t and I can and I am right now, see?

If none of us voted, or we all voted these people the hell out and cleaned house, or voted no confidence, or just shunned the whole entire show and turned our backs on it like the Amish, we might stand a chance. But instead, a whole bunch of you still decided to go ahead and go legitimize this totally corrupt system by participating and voting for these people anyway.

Why????? Do you dare call these freaking people leaders?!

I hate to break it to ya, but casting a ballot for a new captain after the Titanic has already hit the iceberg isn’t going to mean that baby won’t wind up on the bottom of the ocean regardless.

Then again, this election did show the lowest voter turnout in 72 years. That’s right. Only 36.3 percent of eligible voters even bothered to show up and cast votes nationwide.

So maybe there is hope yet…

(Oh wait, does that number even account for all the rampant voter fraud? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA I bet it didn’t. How many people do you think actually showed up? What a joke.)

    We can thank OURSELVES for this failure to Incarcerate the Incumbents!

    • Smarty

      By saying “ourselves”, you’re lumping ME and YOU into this charade. Personally, I know I’M not to thank, and I doubt you are as well. The creatures to thank are those that fail to SEE what is happening around them. There is strength in numbers…..we just don’t have enough numbers yet…..

      • cold340t

        I am including myself and EVERYONE ELSE too! WE didn’t do enough to stop this madness! So yes, we can “THANK OURSELVES”! Had WE spoken up sooner,done more to stop this “post 9/11” World BS. So, what have WE DONE to FIX this Mess? Listen to Nader? Becky/Limpbo?

    • qweztionz5

      No you cannot claim that right. You are being highly disrespectful to the vote riggers who carried out the election fraud. Please give credit where credit is due. Thank you.

      • cold340t

        To the “Vote riggers”, Your Welcome! We still let it happen!

  • Maddog

    Ms. Nortons bio is the playbook of affirmative action as many leaders now in America. The majority are as intelligent as a rock. No offence to rocks.

    • masterblaster

      Another useless bag of shit on the GOV TIT

  • suezz

    Makes you wonder who is counting the votes and if they were counted correctly. But alas I guess we will never know.

    Voting only justifies their unaccountability.

    I say no one vote and we start over.

    • masterblaster

      correct

  • Tom

    This article actually thinks voting is legit? If voting worked, they wouldn’t use it. Thinking that we actually elect these bozos is about as real as the holocaust or OBL did 911. These pukes are selected, not elected. Our government is officially de facto. The people have no representation in politics, we have been usurped by foreign banksters.

    All of Congress is treasonous, as well as the Obama Cabal…voting is just a distraction and an exercise in keeping the educated idiots who are members of the RNC/DNC from understanding they have no voice.

    Just the fact Obama uses executive orders, means your vote is worthless. Congress is owned by Zionism and elections are nothing but a way to convince the befuddled herd they have a say so…when nothing could be further from the truth. Google Weimar Republic and you’ll see they’ve turned us into Weimar America.

    • Also, The biggest Gotcha is…They never ever counted your votes since the formation of America.

      Voting is as pathetic and useless as attending school and university…It gets you nowhere other than being a slave.

      • funny, an educaton (and motivation) got me a six figure salary. Not sure what your definition of “slave” is, but doing meaningful work for enough money to live comfortably, maintain a reasonable bit of land in the country, and keep my kids out of public school sounds less like “slave” than the guy in the welfare line.

    • NS

      God willing, Weimar America will become Nationalist America and kick the bloodsuckers out just as Germany did!

      Around and around we go on the wheel of history.

  • M Fr Nch

    People in the US lack the intellectual capacity to vote for anything. Part of it can be blamed on the lack of candidates but really we all know the whole is corrupt and vote fraud is the only kind of vote we do here.
    If people had a brain they would not even bother to go to the polls they would be arresting these corrupt puke patches and locking them up with their corrupt cop buddies and their banker daddies. But alas we have sheep and morons for the most part.

    • Yeah. There is no voting in America. Its just a drama. our votes are not even counted.

  • masterblaster

    In Congress they all suck balls even Ron and rand the money grubbers who never get anything passed but the HAT to fill their coffers. There is no point in voting and everyone stayed away from the poles they would get FEAR in them. Thats right the FEAR that no one believes this pack of lies sold to the public and we may be inclined to follow the FRENCH they way they handled low approval ratings. AHHHAHA.
    I just cannot believe anyone can call themselves a Republican and support or not Demand the immediate resignation of John Behner and Mitch McConnel just for starters. These two are nothing more than Drunks and low level Griffters sitting in High Level positions of public Trust.

    Say what you may about Harry Ried and dont mistake this I am not a fan of his or any democrat but at least he served his constituency with vigor and sometimes ruthlessness. That is what it takes to get the job done and with a little help from some Drunks and Grifters!

    • Justin OB

      so you approve of harry reid but dislike ron and rand paul? you are a complete dipshit

  • Tatiana Covington

    Very well… the hell with it. Say that in 2016 only 20% vote. Whoever “wins” would have only about 10.4% of the electorate. No legitimacy then!

  • Yeims

    Voters didn’t even get rid of all the dual citizen politicians! Well, with that, I’m slowly coming around to just pity the Americans and their problems that apparently have no solutions.

  • Justin OB

    We live in a country run by psychopaths and populated by idiots

  • You can’t vote for anybody except CORPORATION entities who represent the bankers.

    The united ( adjective) states of America appears to be without any seated members in any true gov’t office.

    • Stop Bush and Obama

      Exxon/Lockheed 2016!!! (regardless of whether it’s though their representative Jeb Bush or their representative Hillary Clinton)

      • You got that right. Maniacs one and all. SATAN’S MEAT PUPPETS

  • They did that in Scotland…Its the Media that needs to free..Media is their biggest propaganda tool

  • Kansas Bright

    Why do you not bring ELECTION FRAUD into the conversation? What makes you think they were “elected” when few, if any, like them/believe them, want them as their reps?

  • NS

    The inherent flaw of Democracy: People are stupid.

    People want COMFORT, not “freedom.” And you can’t change human nature.

  • Geddy Presley

    the voting process is a complete and total sham,,, when electronic voting machines were brought into use our democracy died,, “no paper trails”, “impenetrable proprietary software unable to be substantiated”,, the all of a sudden the “uselessness of exit polls”,,,, Any voting machine in any precinct can be manipulated and the outcome changed with the stroke of some keys hundreds of miles away,, couple
    that with citizens united and the gross influx of billionaire cash into each and every election and you realize its all a complete and total scam,, these most recent election results alone prove my statement, our democracy is lost

    • Stop Bush and Obama

      They don’t even need voting machines for that — elections have been rigged long before those came along, by the simple fact that people only get to choose between 2 nearly identical candidates.

      What exactly is the difference between “Patriot Act” Bush and “NDAA” Obama? Not much beyond their claimed party affiliation.

      In the unlikely event someone else manages to show up on the ballot after all, they use the media to either prevent people from learning about that 3rd person, or to spread fear of that person.

      The media and the system need fixing before fixing the voting machines can make a difference that actually matters.
