Human politics are amusing to the superior animal kingdom. With animals, the strong survive, the children are protected and life is simple and clean. No one holds a baby sparrow hostage because they don’t get catnip
On the other hand, human politics involve a lot of silly posturing that could never be backed up in a one on one smackdown for leadership. For instance, a minority Republican party recently shut down the American government in a temper tantrum because they don’t like healthcare being extended to everyone. What a stupid show. If you can’t be the pitcher you take your bat and glove and go home? Very evolved.
Now, SmuttyCat has learned that in a secret meeting, the House Republicans repealed the right of any member of congress to call for a vote to re-open the government in the event of a stalemate. So, not only did the stupid humans shut down the government, they won’t face their bosses (the American people) and vote in public to say they did this.
Um, does anyone remember Democracy? The right of the people to know how the government is run? The right of the people to know and vote on changes? No secret meetings.
Only after the videos below were made public, did the Republicans finally vote to extend the budget and re-open the government. SmuttyCat won’t go into all the ways this is stupid, look at the videos and speak for yourselves.
And remember this stuff next election. Humans deserve adult representatives, not tantrum-throwing toddlers.
