Have you noticed that Congress gets a lot of time off?

And have you noticed that even when they are "in Session" they throw away most of Monday and Friday with traveling? And have you noticed that from Tuesday to Thursday Senators are rarely on the floor, so they are spending more time having Quorum Calls than they are debating?
Have you noticed that when they are debating neither side ever seems to be actually "debating" with the other side... like they don't respond to each others' comments and queries? And have you noticed that even when they do comment on a question from the other side they never really provide an accurate answer?
Have you noticed that religious holidays (like Good Friday) are observed as National Events, despite the separation of Church and State? And have you noticed that NO political party actually represents the declining Middle Class? And have you noticed that Health Care legislation should be renamed Health Insurance Company Preservation legislation?
Have you noticed that our government, our media, our students and, well, everyone else, have become more and more illiterate (misspellings on CNBC bottom-screen trailers pointed this out to me as well... or as my wife said "...but it's CNBC!" as if that implied that a major financial network should not mistake "hole" with "whole"... as in "Secretary Geithner is getting us out of a whole")? And have you noticed that no attention is paid to this increased illiteracy at all? By anyone?
There's more... oh yes, there's much more to notice, but most people are more concerned with carrying guns to public events, or paying no taxes for demanded services, or not missing Desperate Housewives. You can argue with me and say all this is not true, but could you prove it?
