If you aren’t angry; You aren’t paying attention!
I saw this bumper sticker and thought that “I for one", am very angry.
When my girls were little and they couldn’t get along, I would threaten them that I was going to lock them in a room together until one of them came out dead, or they worked out their issues.
Many of us who have jobs to do, have had to cancel vacations or delay trips when problems arise or if work hasn’t been completed. Perhaps the Democrats and the Republicans would find a compromise and work out the biggest pervasive problem we have in this country today if they couldn’t leave until they finished their job. I seems to me that the parties care more about the “win” than they do about what is best for the American people.
So here we are at a time of great crisis, and after passing a tiny piece of legislation concerning the debt ceiling, setting the real work aside for the future, congress packs their bags and goes on vacation. Really? Where are they when our triple A rating was downgraded? Where are they while the market is plummeting?
I have often fantasized about putting this stubborn, bi-partisan and adolescent congress in a room and telling them that they can’t come out until they get it done!
