I'm a gluten for punishment!
Being somewhat of a political junkie, while dealing with the sale of a house I am also watching the news. The house has been on the market 4 mos. (previous residence); the Politics have been rambling for the past five years, and have been irritating, disgusting, sometimes entertaining, but mostly frustrating. I should find another way to enjoy myself.
I am somewhat disappointed with the spineless Republicans, and very disgusted with the idiocy of the Democrats. I fear the Socialists may sneak in between these two major parties come Election time. Do the Republicans not realize what they are dealing with? If not then someone should tell them. They need to grow a pair.
We are paying these men and women handsomely, and they don't seem interested in doing the job. They seem only happy and content to pursue their own personal agenda. (especially the Democrats). Their behavior has been abominable.
If anyone knows how to get a strong message to our Legislative Dept. (Congress), I would like to hear it. Our Vote speaks loud, I know, but that's only at election time. How can we, as citizens, tell these people to either do the job we pay them to do, or take their things and go home.
Donald Trump has been firing non-cooperative and backstabbing staff for some time now. Why can't we, as voters, do the same? Why do we have to wait for the next election? They can do a lot of damage in the meantime.
And don't tell me to write or call my Representative. That's a very weak suggestion. It is common knowledge that it does no good.
The current behavior of these numb-nuts in Washington, D.C. is embarrassing as well as very unacceptable. I speak not of all, but certainly a noticeable many.
Seems everyone has a solution, but no-one puts anything in motion. And the Liberal Democrats continue to tear our Nation apart. It is my personal opinion that our media is mostly to blame for the situation we find ourselves in today. The lies and manipulations, written and reported on current events have been proven to be such, without a doubt. And yet we continue to support their publications. I make every attempt to watch just a few broadcasts. I avoid those that have questionable reports, and obvious bias.
But I will keep watching, as I love my Country and want to keep it as a Republic.
I am waiting for a book written by Dan Bongino entitled "EXONERATION". I understand it is exceptional. Mr. Bongino is a past NYC Police Officer, and a retired Secret Service Agent, as well as a Radio Host, and accomplished Author. He has made several appearances on TV, the most recent on "LIFE, LIBERTY, AND LEVIN on Sunday Nights, and as a commentator and contributor on many broadcasts, including THE FIVE. He is well versed on what he reports and discusses.
Indulge me please while I add a comment about Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who is operating way above her pay grade. At the ripe old age of 39 (?) she portends to be so aware of the ""way of the world"". Her fellow members of The House should bring her back to Earth.
Remember a few years back when the younger generation had a motto of "don't trust anyone over 30"? Perhaps we shouldn't give them so much credit at 18 or 21! Let's just say no-one is of age for anything until they reach 25!
Why does our Congress not put this young lady in her place?
And why don't Parents show more attention to what is going on in our schools. Does anyone go to the PTA meetings anymore? Does anyone go to the School Board meetings to stay on top of things.
Perhaps I am seeing the major problem in our Society. Everyone is so locked into their own personal life they forget their responsibility to our youth. We even want to kill them when their born if we decide they will be a bother.
Believe me when I tell you that it is very possible we are experiencing "the second coming", and you know what happens if we don't do the right thing. No? Then read your Bible.
God bless us all.
