From the Bear’s Corner: A Potemkin Congress

Senator Maria Cantwell (D) of Washington State who is the chairwoman of the Indian Affairs Committee and Republican Representative Tom Cole decided that they would weigh in on one the most important issues facing the country today.

They intend to send a letter ” to the commissioner of the National Football League, Roger Goodell, urging him to support changing the name of the Washington Redskins because it offends both Native Americans and others and along with that Senator Cantwell issued a veiled threat that she intends look into the NFL tax-exempt status.

Given all the problems that this country has, economic stagnation, a jobless recovery, uncontrollable spending, and enough National Debt to choke a horse (no offense meant to horses) I am impressed with these two for bring up such an important issue to the public.

Being a member of the carnivore family your lovable little Bear here is also offended by the terms used to describe Bears. I call on these two legislators, who seem to have more time on their hands than they need, to rectify this injustice against Bears with another PR stunt to get their names in front of the public.

And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, I need a source of frustration — so God made a politician. – Keith Yancy
