This Is Your Captain Speaking. I Apologize But We Are Going To Have To Circle Back Because I Flew Right Over Washington D.C.

This Is an Oldie But Goodie Blog From 2010

    Before I move on with this inaneness, I should explain the Subject of the Blog Posting... The Good Captain missed Washington D.C. because it was hidden from view. It was covered up with paper.

    The following 3 bullets are from the News we were subjected to in December 2010:
    •Stimulus Bill was more than 1,400 pages long.
    •The Senate is presently trying to pass an Omnibus Spending Bill that is just under 2,000 pages long.
    •Obamacare was reported to be around 2,700 pages long, however, after all accompanying regulations were added around it, it was around 20,000 pages long.

    This was from Political Hotsheet of October 10, 2009... "It should be noted that spending bills routinely exceed 1,000 pages, as do some other bills. President Bush's 2007 budget bill was 1,482 pages long."

    This one is easy...
    I propose that our Congress pass and our President sign into law a bill that stipulates that spending bills must be less than 1,000 pages.

    Do you think I need be more specific? OK, I will be more specific...

    I propose that our Congress pass and our President sign into law a bill that stipulates that spending bills must be 12 pages or less.

    Congress might just go for this if the sponsors of the No More Than 12 Pages Bill would point out that bills of this size would ensure that they could all be at Happy Hour when the bell rings ... Every Day!

    Would I kid u?
