In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.- John Adams
I have seen this quote many times and love it each time....this time I copied and pasted it from Ms. Meadowlark at Just Wandering Through - she a cool chick - Cool with a Capital "C" :)
Obviously, it rings of truth - but there is more. It tells me that the crap we are having to put up with (for a while longer, at least) is nothing new. The Righteous John Adams thought the same thing about the Congress that I do - that they are worthless....
There is comfort in that - there is kinship - there is a feeling that nothing new is under the sun and that the sun will come up tomorrow, no matter what happens today. The fact that John and I view Congress the same links me ever more to the Founding Fathers, entrenches me more as We The People, emboldens me, empowers me, fortifies me.
John Adams was We The People - I am We The People - and whatever may come, I will remain, We The People ~ and I will get on my knees and thank God that I am not a shame, a law firm or Congress :)
