The Ironic National Preparedness Month Resolution

Someone call Alanis Morrisette – the U.S. House of Representatives has arranged for a free lesson in what genuine irony looks like. The object of the lesson is H. Res. 1618, a resolution urging “the people of the United States to observe National Preparedness Month”.

The resolution designates September as National Preparedness Month, but it wasn’t even introduced until halfway through September… because its authors weren’t prepared earlier.

The National Preparedness Month resolution currently sits in the House Committee on Homeland Security. That committee has had three days now to move the resolution forward towards consideration by the full House, but it remains sitting there, stuck in line… because the Committee on Homeland Security isn’t prepared to consider the resolution.

Oh, delicious gravy of irony.

    Why do they bother with this bullshit?

  2. F.G. Fitzer says:

    Because they’re not prepared to pass legislation that would make a real difference in the world – like climate legislation, for instance.

  3. Tom says:

    So both they and we won’t be prepared for the consequences.

    I hope they are Mia on everything from now on.
