Restoring order to US no laughing matter

info@islandpacket.comMarch 8, 2013 

In the spirit of the satirical writings of Jonathan Swift, may I suggest that our military (specifically the Marine Corps) march to the capital, take over the Congress and ban the elected children from the playground known as the legislative branch, supervise 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., have JAG advise the Holy Nine and use its military occupational specialties, where and when appropriate, in pursuit of the goals of the Constitution.

"What," you say. "Ridiculous," you cry. "Discipline, order, duty, honor and a chain of command" is what Jonathan would say, and in his absence, I suggestively echo.
