So now, right in the middle of economic armageddon, instead of busting ass to stop the bleeding, we all have to stop and twiddle our dicks for two days to humor some stone age harvest superstition. Now, I’m not one of those atheists who normally goes around saying that religion is harmful to society, but this is an example where it IS harmful. It is completely irrational to split in the middle of a crisis because a magic book says when the sun goes down, you’re supposed to drop everything to go blow on a ram’s horn and dip fucking apples in honey for two days.
I think it’s fucking irresponsible for Congress to do anything or go anywhere until they put out this fire that they helped start (that ALL of them helped start, left right and center).
There’s absolutely no rational reason reason for it. There are more important things going on than engaging in religious rituals. I’m not paying these bitches to sit around in the dark and eat gefilte fish. I’m paying them to – at a bare minimum – keep us out of a fucking depression. No one’s going to DIE if they don’t go eat gefilte fish. They can postpone it or something. If God is really a decent, sensible guy, he’s going to fucking understand.
This is when religion drives me nuts. It’s utter lunacy to put everything on hold so we can wait for some members to perform an ancient, tribal raindance which has to be done RIGHT NOW because a magic book written by cavemen says so.
This is not an anti-Jewish rant. I would say the same thing if Congress was leaving the wildfires burning for ANY religious holiday. I don’t care if tomorrow is Christmas Day. They need to stay there and do their fucking jobs.
Even if some members of Congress insist on putting their holidays ahead of their country, there’s no reason the REST of them can’t stay there and fix this mess. Fucking lazy, shiftles, Gentile assholes.
