What do the government and Miley Cyrus have in common? Apparently they both cannot be tamed. Miley Cyrus just released a new music video for her song “Can’t Be Tamed.” Throughout the video Ms. Cyrus is referring to how nobody can hold her back and she’s going to do whatever she wants. It makes me think of Congress.
No matter how many times we tell Congress that we do not want socialized healthcare; we do not want a financial regulation overall; we do not want an education reform bill; they continue to do it anyway. Congress can simply not be tamed. There is no cage big enough to hold Congress in. With the national debt reaching $13 trillion I have to wonder how ridiculous do you have to be to get elected into Congress.
Ever since I was little my father taught me the importance of saving and spending wisely. When I was 13 years old I broke one of my dad’s tools. My dad made me buy him a new one, except for I bought in on “credit.” My dad paid for it, but I had to pay him back with $1 interest every month. I realize that’s not very much money but it was the principle of the matter. I did not believe my dad would do that to me at first so I did not bother to pay it back…until after the first month my dad let me know that I owed him $51. I paid that tool off the next month including the interest and did not wait another month. I was tamed when I was 13 years old. Sen. Byrd is 92 years old and I do not think he gets it yet.
This is all to say that maybe Miley would make a pretty good Congresswoman.Published in
