Resolutions are Jello

All the resolutions put together, plus the puny men making up the words in them, wouldn't have the resolve to change a flat tire! First they would find someone to blame for the flat. Failing that, a manufacturer to hold responsible for making a tire that possibly could go flat. Then complaint about the "high cost of tow truck service...disgracful that the poor cannot possibly blah, blah blah.." Next they'll try and "talk" the tire into reinflating. Failing that, they'll use scorn, then diatribe, then lies. Anything but open the trunk and take out the jack. "This President should have made it clear to us that tires can go flat!" My respect for these, in C.S. Lewis' words, "men without chests" falls to the lowest levels of the Inferno.
