In Congress We Trust?

Congressman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) stood on the floor of the House of Representatives, struck his best John Adams pose, and asked his colleagues, “Is God God? Or is man God? In God do we trust, or in man do we trust?” With the gravity of Cicero (or so he thought), Franks concluded that if there is no trust in the Almighty, then "we should just let anarchy prevail because, after all, we are just worm food. So indeed we have the time to reaffirm that God is God and in God do we trust.” Shortly thereafter, the House voted to reaffirm that “In God We Trust” as the national motto -- again. Apparently, the act of Congress in 1956 that previously affirmed the motto wasn't good enough. Yes, this is our Congress at work. But before you guffaw, just remember who elected these bozos in the first place.
