The Queen Is In
Can we invite the Queen to oversee your government? I know 240 years ago we rather rudely told her ancestors to go away and leave us alone, we thought we could govern ourselves just fine. But at the moment I am not so sure we can. Congress is a dysfunctional mess, I don't think they could agree that the sun rises in the east and sets the west, they would be more likely to appropriate $1,000,000 for someone to study it.
We have a presidential election coming up, if you ever wanted to be President, change your name to None of the Above and get yourself on the ballot. The choices are bleak, the only good news is that the President can't cause much trouble as long as Congress is screwed up and that mess is likely to continue.
Our government is caught in a huge game of, if it is not my idea, it can't be a good idea. Maybe the Queen could tell them what is a good idea, and tell them if they expect their New Year's honors, she expects them to do the right thing. Maybe she can withhold their tea, until they learn to work together.
