I have this fantasy in which a mob of angry Americans barricades all the exits of the House and Senate chambers and refuses to let our lawmakers leave until they come to an agreement on the current debt problem. We not only do not allow them to leave, we do not allow them to have anything to eat nor anything to drink but tap water. Bathroom visits? Absolutely not. This shouldn’t take more than a few hours and besides, I imagine that peeing one’s pants would be a very humbling experience and nobody needs humbling more than the members of Congress.
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: It’s only a FANTASY. I hate to have to say this but don’t any of you actually go do this. Just because you read it on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.
