I thought “…doomed to repeat it” meant history more than a couple years ago

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. -George Santayana I always used to think of "learning my history" would go back a few number of years (like FDR’s failed New Deal policies, Nixon’s wage and price freezes, CAFE standards).  Last couple of years – not so much, but it seems that …

So, does this mean that Congress is merely an “enabler”?

Well, it seems that spending our money is all that the Dems want to do – Seems that the Chief Law Writer is stepping walking jogging skipping running away from the most dreaded word in politics while applied to them: Accountability Oh, the Congresscritters certainly love that word when applied to those they govern (to …
