Wednesdays are now devoted to sharing information, and I welcome input. If you have a topic you'd like to discuss, please let me know and I'll toss it out for debate. I thought about sharing tips on writing, tips on editing, but all day, I couldn't think of anything else except the current state of affairs.
Ladies and Gentlemen...we're screwed. Our new president can't even fill his cabinet with people who haven't cheated on their income tax or have some other shady secrets. Now when over one million people are unemployed...and this isn't counting those who have been cut back on hours or days and are considered 'underemployed, the senate can't even come together to find a solution that's going to get us out of this mess. Rather than consider that middle-class America is out here drowning and needs a life ring NOW, the democrats and republicans (and yes, I didn't capitalize them for a reason) are trying to one up each other to show who has control of the house. This isn't a pissing contest. This is serious business. It's time to put party lines aside and work for the common good of America.
In a country that is so techno-advanced and has made so many other major strides, why are we still operating under a government patterned by our forefathers? Why do we continue to elect the same ineffectual people to any position that has no term limits? The President is limited to how long he can serve, but Senators and House members can serve until they can no longer sit upright, drool on themselves, and be helped to cast their vote. No disrespect to senior citizens, but there comes a time to admit someone else may be a little more qualified...and sharper.
Ask yourself and then leave a comment...Would we be better off to vote for a person rather than a party? What is the benefit if the person elected doesn't know chit from china? (No inference intended to President Obama, although if the shoe fits, he might want to slip it on.) This is not a one person fix. Everyone needs to work together and that just ain't happenin'.
