explain it to me like I’m a twelve-year old

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I have forgiven myself for not remembering what goes in the ____blank_____.  Denzel plays Joe Miller in Philadelphia, and Joe say’s multiple times, “explain it to me like I’m a _____ year old.  Since Joe uses three different numbers I am going to give myself the liberty to choose one he did not choose, and claim it as Joe’s quote.  Dear kind readers:  As Joe Miller says in Philadelphia I am going to explain something to you as if you’re a twelve-year old.  Sincerely, Tom Doody.  The Speaker of the House regulates the bills to be voted on by the House, so if he or she blocks it then the document will not become a law.  This fact created John Boehner’s predicament that forced him to quit.  OPTION ONE: He could allow a budget to go to the floor keeping the Federal Government running.  If he did his party would replace him as speaker marking the end of his time as Speaker and the end of his career as a politician with the ugly distinction of failing to keep the support of his peers.  OPTION TWO: he could block the budget, and shut down the Federal Government  OPTION THREE: He could quit.  Some twisted rules of congress clearly considered in Boehner’s timing allows the House to operate with him as a Congressman in a Speaker-less House.  In a Speaker-less House all bills go to the floor.  Whala — John quitting allows these documents called, “bills” a chance to become a law.  Since he will function in this period until his final day as a Congressman and not the Speaker he is free to vote for or against.  Since the House is Speaker-less during this period all bills go to the floor allowing John to say ciao with dignity.  John’s alternative to quitting would be sure to include two events: ONE: Federal Government shutdown number dos on his watch  TWO: ending his time as Speaker and ending his career by having his peers show they lack confidence in him by voting him out.  John retires suffering neither of these indignities ONE or TWO — bravo John. »» about me  302-990-2346  twitter  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
