John Lennon once went through a phase in which he was obsessed with “primal scream therapy.” The idea was that you can release and get over your repressed childhood trauma by screaming at the top of your lungs. It didn’t do much for John’s music, but I sincerely hope it works. There are a lot of Democrats in Washington right now with serious mental and emotional problems, and yesterday, they engaged in the biggest group primal scream therapy session in Congressional history, so let’s all pray they come back a little saner next week.
If watching Democrats have a screaming meltdown over having to follow their own rules is too hard on your hearing and nerves, try this story. At least it shows a little higher level of intellectual maturity, but it’s still absolutely flabbergasting. Watch some Democratic legislators turn a simple proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before committee meetings into an endless debate about whether their political opponents should be allowed to lead if they’re “insurrectionists,” and what that even means, and who else should be barred and on and on and on.
New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a former Democrat turned Republican, spoke for most Americans when he said, “I'm almost speechless. Come on, this can't be real. I can't believe we're having this debate…How can we waste time arguing about this? Why the heck can't we just stand up and say we love our country and we love our flag?”
Well, why can’t some people stand up and say socialism is bad? Personally, I wonder if some of them just don’t want to have to say the Pledge of Allegiance because they’d choke on the phrase “under God.” Or maybe they object to the word, “Indivisible,” since division seems to be the modern Party’s mission.
