Bald Eagles (despite Ben Franklin’s doubts)

are born to be above it all.

(Now they do steal fish from Osprey, which makes them only human,

but maybe easier to emulate?)

Congress needs to mime our National symbol.

Soar. Get a long view. Be like the Iroquois:

“In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation;

even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine!”

(To speak baldly.)

This unusual point of view comes from Last-Week’s-Gone-Viral You-Tube of the Bald Eagle soaring with a camera on its back. Even if it’s fake, it’s awesome.

This photo was taken by Doreen Orciari. It was a 90 degree day and this Bald Eagle HAD been soaring. I think Congress needs to also see what it looks like to be tired from having striven to soar and be above it all. The second picture shows the guy actually panting, something I’d like to see our Congress doing.

  1. Have we ever had a Congress as unschooled in the art of negotiation, in getting things done before a deadline is just moments away? It is a torture to watch their modus operandi.
