Who The Hell Are They?

Still catching up from vacation. In the meantime, we have this from Les Jones:
They said if we didn’t pass the stimulus, unemployment would go above 8%. We passed the stimulus. Unemployment is above 9%.

They said if we didn’t raise the debt ceiling, the stock market would crash. We raised the debt ceiling. The stock market crashed anyway.

They said if we didn’t raise the debt ceiling, ratings agencies would downgrade US debt. We passed the debt ceiling. The ratings agencies downgraded US debt.
Maybe we should stop listening to "they"...

And on a lighter note:
An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard.  I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly  that he had a home and was well taken care of.

He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head  He then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall,  curled up in the corner and fell asleep.
An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.

The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside  and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour.  This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious I pinned a note to his collar:  'I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'

The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar: ‘He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3. He's trying to catch up on his sleep.

Can I come with him tomorrow?’

Anyone who's lived with small children knows how the dog - and his owner - feels.
