SC6 Shows You Why Nothing Ever Gets Done in DC, Courtesy of Schoolhouse Rock....


Thirty Years Later, it Still Rings True...........
While we continue with this 'most important' of presidential elections, I hope that we have burned into your brains one undeniable fact - who is president is less important than who in Congress. Why? As Vince Vaughn said in 'Wedding Crashers'..... Let me hold your hand and explain it to you like a 6 year old.....
Basically, every bill that is passed starts in the House of Representatives, and the long trail of BS starts from there. I can go into long detail, with lots of options and charts, but there is no clearer way I can explain it than by how we learned everything as kids in the 70's...........Schoolhouse Rock.
Aside from '3 is a Magic Number' , 'I'm Just a Bill' is probably my favorite Schoolhouse Rock song. I know many of you who read SC6 are political insiders, and are familiar with the legislative process, but for some of you this might widen your horizons - and show you that President McCain or Obama won't be the earth-changing event you're hoping for. In short, a new President with the same old Congress means no change, and that folks is something you can believe in.........

Yeah, i still think he's a bit of a puz, but Wedding Crashers was pretty good. The Break-Up isn't quite as good, but it has a couple good moments.
