    Creek Nation politics are a headache:

    What If every time a citizen picked up his commodities a worker there hit him on the head with a rubber mallet and it hurt. And what if after some time he sought out a member of the Council to ask if it was wrong to be treated in this manner. What kind of help do you suppose this citizen would get?

    The Council member would probably do a quick mental cause and effect calculation on his political future and say: I don’t know, but I’ll look into it; adding that the citizen should try to get used to being hit with a rubber mallet for the sake of getting along. Then he might add, “C’mon, it’s a rubber mallet, get over it.” He would probably end the conversation by asking;” How’s your mom?”

    As it turned out, the citizen’s mom is fine, but the citizen’s head hurts like hell, and the Council member who said he’d “look into it” never looked into it and has since disappeared, possibly into the National Council’s witness protection program.

    So why do they do it? Why should our legislators take valuable time trying to solve the travails of their constituents, when it isn’t in their job description? We know. It’s because there are elections and they haven’t read the Constitution and don’t know their jobs. And why do citizens continue to seek help from their legislators to solve their individual problems when a little assertiveness on their part could do it? Same thing.

    One day the legislators or citizens will learn that it doesn’t take a genius to discern the dissimilarity between right and wrong kinds of behaviors. But knowing this isn’t the real problem, is it? However, knowing who your relatives are is important (possible voters), and that, metaphorically speaking, is a huge headache.

    A bird flies on its wing, the rabbit on its’ speed, the turtle on its’ determination, and the Creek Nation on its Tylenol.
