I had promised myself that my next blog post would be about my experience of the Citizens Intervention rally at the US Capitol. But, I came across this story and I had to write something.
Our courageous and wise leaders, our Representatives in the House, voted 396-9 yesterday to make the nation's official motto clearly official so that we the people are no longer suffering from any confusion. So helpful! Seriously. This is what our Congress is doing while we are losing jobs and homes.
"In God We Trust" has been our official motto since 1956. E Pluribus Unum (Latin for "out of many, one"), chosen by our founding fathers and made official in 1782, was unceremoniously replaced by "In God We Trust" by a vote in Congress in 1956.
Indeed, it's time to start praying because we have no trust in this Congress. In fact, if we could, we would vote NO CONFIDENCE.
By the way, no one asked us what we preferred for the official motto. Which one do you prefer?
Personally, I prefer E Pluribus Unum because our country is about diversity, unity and religious tolerance. How about if we make it the Coffee Party's official motto to save this beautiful ideal from being voted out of our national consciousness and consigned to the dustbin of history by our elected leaders.
In any case, it's official. We are down to 9 sane members in the House of Representatives.
