Wow! It's been over 6 weeks since I've taken the time to "bitch and moan" about the direction this Country is going! I've had plenty to say, but I've bitten my tongue and hoped for Congress to get off their butt's and do something for the American Public; ........ their Employer's!
I know I'm my own worst enemy at times because I spend way too much time ferreting out the news from sources other than Liberal and Conservative media outlets. Each is trying to push their own agenda's for their own elected stooges. Please don't tell me this is about "helping" the American Public....... this is all about "POWER"! Who gets to stay in Power, and promote their own agenda's upon the "PEOPLE"!
The past two years; I've had the opportunity to drive from Detroit, Michigan to Charleston, South Carolina. Seeing the huge auto manufacturers in Ohio and Michigan laying empty, to the inner-cities of Petersburg and Richmond Virginia, Philadelphia and Camden New Jersey, to the empty storefronts in every city and town in this journey, to the filth and garbage on our highways because there's not enough money in the budgets to allow the clean-up. Is this the new "norm" for our Country? These conditions were not caused by any one individual, or any one party. These conditions were caused by the collective greed and mismanagement of "all" of our Elected Politicians!
This weekend; we have our Democratic and Republican Leaders meeting in Washington to come to some type of compromise regarding the Debt Ceiling and cutting the National Budget. Two totally different agenda's, with two totally different solutions, with neither willing to "budge an inch"! "GREAT PHOTO OP"......... look how hard we're working for the American Public! I say this dripping with sarcasm! Both Parties are willing to flush this great Country down the toilet to prove they are "right", and the other "wrong"! Oh that's right; this is for the American Public"! (Sarcasm again if you didn't recognize it!)
Well; it's a beautiful Sunday morning and I've probably upset a number of people that will read this. However; I would like to offer some "common sense" solutions on my next blog. If I'm going to bitch about things; I should also offer some solutions. You might not agree with them, but it make me feel better than just letting a drunk continue to drive us off a cliff!
