Rhetoric

The definition of rhetoric is among other things language designed to have a persuasive or impressive effect on its audience but often regarded as lacking in sincerity or meaningful content. Add some synonyms like bombast, magniloquence pomposity and purple prose and what do you have, congress.

The ratings of both houses with the public is single digit and that may be overstating congresses value. We have seen little activity for the last ten years and what we have seen has been totally partisan.

The point of this rant is that I believe we are very close, possibly less than a year away from street violence not from gangs but from frustrated and angry citizens. It is my belief that if the rhetoric of congress isn’t replaced by positive and unified action to pass legislation that makes the administration’s agenda become a fact, that violence will visit our country on nationwide basis.
