Nothing Better To Do?

In an apparent admission that they have nothing better to do (something many of us have known for quite some time), the U.S. Senate is holding hearings on how the NCAA picks it’s national champion in college football. I know it sounds like I must be making this up, but unfortunately, I’m all too serious. Still can’t believe it, view the press release; the Anti-Trust Subcommittee has listed this crucial topic of grave national concern (he said with dripping sarcasm) as one of the handful of issues they intend to hold hearings on during this session of Congress. While most fans of college football would agree that the current system is far from ideal, U.S. Senate hearings are the last thing we need.

Frankly, I would just as soon they not hold hearings on any issues, including the important ones, since everything this government touches turns into a larger more expensive government run program sucking the life out of the U.S. economy, but if they are determined to do something this year, perhaps they could make it something the slightest bit relevant to the management and protection of our country!

Senators, please do something, anything, to earn your keep.  Here’s a hint… This isn’t it!

    I used to complain about Congress spending a majority of their time doing such critical things as naming post offices and declaring July National Horseradish Month. Now I wish that this was their only mischief. Considering how they have used their time recently, it might not be such a bad thing for them to get tangled up in the BCS controversy. It has become a yearly tradition that I root for a bit of chaos during the college football season in hopes that an actual playoff might develop. It seems that chaos might be Congress’ specialty. Whatever “cure” they come up with might result in enough chaos to push the system over the edge so that a playoff is the only solution. Clearly it is not the best use of their time, but to be honest, I am looking for anything that might stop the madness.

      I hear you Phil. I could just as easily have written this from the opposite side and said that at least if they’re working on this they will have less time to mess with our lives.

      That reminds me of something my mother always says about legislators – “It would be a better use of taxpayer money to pay them to STAY HOME!”
