The Importance of a Light Bulb

congressman-ted-poeAnother bit of levity here as that is needed every now and then lest we all go insane debating government. A friend of mine shared this with me the other night. The video is hysterical and there is a link to it at the bottom for those that want to watch it as opposed to reading the transcript here. It seems that Representative Ted Poe from Texas has an issue with government putting their hands into everything, especially the federally mandated dependence on foreign lighting. As I have said, he is becoming my favorite Congressman for a reason. It is well worth watching just for his rant. But if you choose to watch, watch the whole 5 minutes.

My New Favorite Congressman

congressman-ted-poeAs you are all well aware, I am pretty fed up with the representation, or lack thereof, that “we the people” are getting from our elected officials in Washington. Someone gave me a link to a video the other day and I found it hilarious. I will be posting it soon so that everyone can enjoy it. The speech is by Congressman Ted Poe, a Republican from the 2nd District in Texas. Congressman Poe may be my new favorite Representative. He simply tells it like it is and that is a bit refreshing. Here is a sample of his speech on the floor of the house…
