This Is How It All Works

You will complain that there's too much pollution coming out of your tailpipe, so some Congressman will get hyper and invent legislation to fix the issue.....but the truth is that the major auto-makers know there's a limit to what can be done.....so they write what they can, say the magic words, and you feel safe about the exhaust coming out of the tailpipe.

You will complain about the amount of sodium in your food from McDonalds, so some Congressman will get hyper and invent legislation to fix the issue....but the truth is that you can't have the Big Mac or fries taste as good as they do....without all that sodium.  So they write what they can, say the magic words, and you feel safe about the sodium on your fast food.

You will complain about the textbooks for your kids in the school.  So some Congressman will get hyper and invent legislation to fix the issue.....but the truth is that you can't have make forty million parents happy....with various text comments.  So they write what they can, say the magic words, and you feel safe about the school books that are issued to your kid.

You will complain about ID theft.  So some Congressman will get hyper and invent legislation to fix the issue....but the truth is that credit card companies, the banks, and sales organizations really don't want a 100-percent effective way of fixing the problem.  So they write what they can, say the magic words, and you feel safe about your ID situation.

You will complain about voter fraud in elections.  So some Congressman will get hyper and invent some legislation to fix the issue....but the truth is that you just can't deny folks the right to vote or stop dual-voting.  So they write what they can, say the magic words, and you feel safe about the legislation passed having fixed voter fraud.

You will complain about school buses being prone to massive causalities.  So some Congressman will get hyper and invent some legislation to fix the buses....but the truth is that you just can't make them absolutely safe without spending $100k per bus, which no one will ever agree with.  So they write what they can, say the magic words, and you feel safe about the legislation passed having fixed voter fraud. 

We come now to gun violence, and we will complain about assault weapons.  So some Congressman will get hyper and invent some legislation to ban the assault weapons.....but the truth is that there will still a hundred ways to kill off a dozen school kids in two minutes.  So they write what they can, say the magic words, and for a day....a week...or a month.....you feel safe about the wondrous thing that legislation can do.  Yes, for a fleeting period.....it all felt good.  Then, you came back to the way it works, or how it simply doesn't work.

That's how it all works.
