America’s Joyous Future

    Clearly there is a major juxtaposition between the week and Sunday and it is kind of funny. One can also look at that sign and see an organization that is spending all week trying to help others (and generally a majority of people that attend these meetings are not affiliated with the organization providing the services) and saving Sunday for an inspirational message. No specific religion is noted on the sign which is probably best for avoiding theological discussions.

    I think a better sign might read like this:

    Congressional Schedule: Meetings 10am – 2pm

    *Monday: Stop all progress in Congress. Head out for drinks at 2pm at private club.
    *Tuesday: Vacation Day To Spend with Mistress (recovery from Monday)
    *Wednesday: Congress takes quick action. Bipartisan Group in Congress approves at 90% increase in salary for themselves. Catered breakfast and lunch.
    *Thursday: Obtain dangerous prescription drugs from “doctor of the week” via extensive personal healthcare.
    *Friday: Tell America how much we love our veterans while cutting funding to VA hospitals.
    *Saturday: Attend free lobbyist dinners and parties without spouses 10am – 4am.
    *Sunday Sermon: “America’s Joyous Future, Watch out for Those Other Evil Political Parties and Countries”

    Great comment JIM K! Iron Knee put up the picture of the sign during one of his rare moments with internet access. I’m tempted to repost the picture with your comment directly under it. Maybe after Iron Knee gets back since your point will still be valid.

    Friday’s comment reminds me of the Joke

    Politics is the art of saying nice doggie until you find a bigger stick.
