Damn You, Government!
Well, it’s only been a month since my last post. That’s not too bad. Hahahahahaha.
On this sunny Saturday morning, I find myself reading the news online about the debt ceiling and the budget and I’m getting very angry. Harry Reid makes me sick. John Boehner pisses me off. The rest of our politicians are no better. I believe because I’m finishing up my summer semester of school, in which I’m taking Micro and Macro Economics, I’m a little more concerned with our Economy. I’ve been paying close attention to every detail and I think I’m going to have a heart attack if I don’t learn to calm down. But how can we calm down when our government is so fucked up beyond our control?
My boys are playing together so nicely today. Dawson has brought out the Hotwheels race track to set up on the dining room floor. Owen is racing cars down the unfinished track. Occasionally, I’ll hear Dawson yell at Owen. ”Don’t touch that one! You’ll break it. I’m trying to fix it!” And little Owey-pie will look at him as though he has four heads, but he just continues playing. A few minutes after that, Dawson will show Owen how to connect the pieces to make the best race track. I love that they can play together without any crying. At least for a little while.
Why can’t our government get along like this? Yes, I expect some friction between parties as they each express their points of view. I expect one side to look at the other as if they are a bit crazy when they try to explain how they plan to fix America. But I also expect them to work together to build something functional for the greater good of our country.
Instead, our politicians piss and moan, bitch and complain, and act like their plan is the one and only plan that will work. No one works together. NO ONE is willing to compromise. EVERYONE has a specific agenda they are trying to push through to benefit themselves. It’s freakin’ exhausting to watch. I can’t stand it. These politicians need to act like grown ups.
