I’m sure that Congress is going to listen to our silly Santa Monica City Council as it huffs and puffs and tries to change the Constitution (“Council may join fight against big business,” May 13).

Though I notice that while our silly City Council wants to limit corporate political contributions, they are loudly mute on prohibiting the deep-pocket unions from making political contributions. Could that be because our silly City Council members are bought and paid for by all the public employee unions and hotel unions, and don’t make a decision without their money and instructions? No doubt that’s why the city — as well as other state and municipal governments — is going broke paying the unions with high salaries and benefits and outrageously high retirement packages.
