I had the strangest dream last night...
Last night I dreamt that the Speaker of the House of Representatives encouraged an investigation into a group of people who were protesting what they believed to be an immoral act. The 3rd person in line to the Presidency, who takes an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, was disquieted that this group of people were not really upset but were being funded by unknown sources to pretend to be upset. As I recall this group had suffered some kind of loss. I don't remember exactly what the loss was because it wasn't as important as the fact that this group was "rabble rousing" and causing politicians to have to take a position on a very delicate issue. The immoral act they were mad about was something about resurrecting painful memories of some terrible thing that had happened years and years ago. In essence, she felt this group was making a big deal out of nothing.
Anyway, in this dream the Constitution, which states that people have the right to assembly and free speech, didn't matter anymore. This distraction was keeping politicians in power from running around telling their constituents what great things they were doing for them. Things like taking money from some people to give to other people and making people buy things they didn't want.
Well fortunately, I woke up before I started screaming and startling the neighbors. I thanked my lucky stars that this was a dream and it couldn't really happen in real life. But I'd still like to know what it all means.
Anyone got that number yet?
