“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Everyone who holds public office in our government is sworn in (or affirmed) by repeating the above oath. Too bad it doesn’t include consequences for those who choose to ignore the oath.

Writing just that little bit caused my head to swirl mightily with many things I’d like to say about our elected officials but I can’t seem to quell the noise of the filibuster in my head so rational synapses can vote on something meaningful.

Think I’ll go take a nap.
