United States Congress Passes Historic Legislation!

The nation roils with political unrest as frustration with our elected leaders reaches an all-time high*. The pundits debate what will happen at the polls this fall. A woman in Arkansas wanted to change her first name to “Republican” (LOL). And yet! Amidst all of this confusion and inflamed passion and distrust, our government has managed to rally together and create an historic piece of legislative progress. From the AP:

The Senate unanimously passed a bill late Wednesday to require television stations and cable companies to keep commercials at the same volume as the programs they interrupt.

The House has passed similar legislation. Before it can become law, minor differences between the two versions have to be worked out when Congress returns to Washington after the Nov. 2 election.

Now I know what Benjamin Franklin must have felt like when he got Syphilis from all of those French prostitutes swelled with syphilis pride at the future and potential of this great nation! America! Goodnight, COMMUNISTS!

*Or at least a very high? I don’t know! I’m not a herstory scientist. It’s high!
