My Pet Peeve
“A pen, a pen! Our Kingdom for a pen!” Sounds silly, doesn’t it? Yet, our lawmakers and President Obama raise that cry everyday.
I am referring to the practice of signing legislation with multiple pens.
These pens are then used as tools for fund raising. It’s a seemingly simple and mundane action. Horse feathers! It is indicative of the malaise that is our government and legislators. Even while doing the job they were elected to do; our government officials feel the need to make money. Where does it end? Why can’t anyone in D.C. sign their name with one pen and put the Mont Blanc in their pocket like a normal person?
