While driving through the city yesterday my fourteen year old daughter took notice of some “healthy” ladies at a buststop and exclaimed, “Someone oughta make a weight limit on yoga pants!”
We discussed the “limits” that all yoga pants actually do possess…at some stretch-point they will “explode.” We laughed as we envisioned the result…probably similar to a popped balloon…leaving their owner with little cover-up.
That got me to thinking about limits and responsibility. Yesterday our House of Representatives did what they “oughta”…the will of their constituents!
America is a Representative Republic, citizens send their man/woman to Congress to act on our behalf. Too often they forget that responsibility, and play politics with the other side.
Obamacare is just 10 days from “exploding” a major portion of its contents onto the nation. Yesterday’s House Continuing Resolution comes at the last minute, and may fail in the Senate…but finally we are seeing our conservative Representatives pushing hard in the right direction.
Let’s hope these Conservatives stick to their “oughta-directive” this time!
