Howdy friends and neighbors.  Where does a guy start?  I don’t know if I should start by saying, “welcome to the United Social States of America,” or just wonder what can congress do next?  To keep some sanity this past week I looked back about 80 years  to see what Will Rogers would say.  Surprisingly, just about every one of his quotes apply to today and they fit the current situation like a pair of leather gloves after hauling a thousand square bales.  There are hundreds of quotes, but I’m going to use my favorites. About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation. – Will Rogers.  Ouch!  That could be very true. (more…)
