News releases related to the U.S. Senate and its handling of “ObamaCare” legislation mentioned millions of dollars in bribery money going to the states of at least two senators in return for their vote in order to keep the legislation “alive!”
Yes, they usually wear dress suits with ties and the females also dress immaculately when they are doing whatever at the White House and on Capitol Hill. However, there is an urgent need to change the dress code. It has been a growing crisis ever since the November election of 2008.
Following the shenanigans of what has been going on for the past few months in D.C. it is time that the citizens of our republic insist on a new dress code to be worn when these people, starting with the president, are on the “job!”
In an effort to rally the required number of votes on key legislation bribery has been used. Two of the more notorious instances are millions of dollars going to two states in order to “buy” the votes of a senator from each of those states. And who knows how many other bribes have been involved during the past few months.
Then there is the intended closing of Gitmo and the transfer of the terrorist prisoners there to a prison in – a state that just happens to be Illinois – please tell my why I am not surprised! What kind of deal or combination of deals do you suppose went on there with the “political mafia” of Illinois and Chicago involved? Who will make big money out of that "arrangement?"
Once in a while we learn of the strong arm tactics, the bribery, the late night sessions, the "wheeling & dealing" and the literal “sneaky” moves made by those who are supposed to be “leaders” in government. A detailed list of these highly questionable activities is much too long for this brief space -- it is a kind of ethical and moral "cancer," didn't you know?
If a lot of this kind of stuff was done in the private sector, especially the bribery to buy votes, criminal charges would be filed, and the guilty perpetrators would be doing jail time. And the worst of it is the fact that it is our money they use in such criminal activity!
So in order to present a more accurate picture of the people who claim to “govern” in Washington D.C. let them wear clothing that reflects what they really are – one of two possible types of clothing. Either a black and white striped suit with the broad stripes running horizontally or a blaze orange one piece suit that has the bold letters D. O. C. (Department of Corrections) inscribed on the back!
That way all citizens would see these people for what they really are. Take a detailed look at their salaries and “perks” if you still need some convincing – then see where you can find the identical set up in the private sector! Yes, Virginia, it does make a difference when you have the power to vote on your own wages and extensive perk benefits, plus very little service time required in order to get a fat pension on top of it all!
I rest my case for having a mandated dress code for all elected officials in Washington D. C. as defined above.
Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; Everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, nor does the cause of the widow come before them. --- Isaiah 1:23
The princes of Judah are like those who remove a landmark; I will pour out my wrath on them like water. --- Hosea 5:10
Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves that leave not a bone till morning. Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law. --- Zephaniah 3:3, 4
