Shutdown over: What next?
Congress FAILS again
Today we have a government that seems to be controlled by our own TALIBAN ON THE RIGHT AND TALIBAN ON THE LEFT !!! we as constituents must open our eyes to these radical ones, who are only concerned with the PERKS of office and their retirement benefits and not withe the people they represent ..These "american taliban" must be sent packing home..we need to start electing officials who have our nations best interest at heart. we are becoming a nation that allows the few corporations and wealthy to control the best and the brightest of our generation.. if Congress cannot accomplish the job the were elected to fulfill they should be held to the same standards as the one's who elected them. if their is a national health program, the should not be allowed to exempt themselves. what programs they set forth , should be the same programs they must abide by. if a citizen can be prosecuted and imprisoned for insider trading than our congressman and their spouses are not exempt..they too should be held to same standard. if citizens must work to 65 years for retirement and benefits, than our elected officials should be held to same standard ....if we as a nation can spend 8 trillion dollars in aid to 2 nations over 12 years, than there is no excuse for american children going to bed hungry, cold and sick and if they do-than our elected officials are not doing the job that they were sent to washington to do. thus they should not be able to accept pay or benefits for that period. If we have citizens who cannot find work or are not able to house and feed their families, How in hell can house leaders justify limo's, private jets, and lavish vacations paid for by us -the citizens that they are suppose to represent...we have the Cart in front of the horse in washington and until we wake up-send these phoney jack asses home and prosecute them for the lies and theft and misrepresentation that they committed , we will continue to end up with the short end of the stick and deserve what we get. Shame on our News services. here we have 24 hour , national television and radio news yet i'm beginning to believe they are on the same payroll as our elected officials. why do they not stick their heads out the window and scream as loud as the can "THIS IS BULLSHIT and THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY LONGER !!! this countries citizenry needs to know and understand what is being done to them ...by their elected officials...
I see a time not to far in our future that the democratic will split and become 2 political factions. a centralist party and another that is so far radical to the left, it will only be for discussion only . than the republican party will be only a memory . i registered as a republican in 1971, the year i turned 18 and for years was very proud of our political accomplishments. But over these past 10 years we have become a party so out of touch that many have abandoned the party to become libertarians or sadly, disenfranchised , disillusioned and disenchanted ....thus , headed to the categories that include the green party, socialist party, and other short number americans. That will be a very sad day for us all. The treasure of the united states needs to be independent of the legislative or presidential branch of government. than in moments like these when our government can not or will not do the job that they were elected to do, they can than inform them that they will not be paid until they learn to complete the jobs they were elected to do..We need to send the message to our officials that ' WE ARE TIRED OF THEIR BULLSHIT AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY LONGER " they need to do the job they were elected to do or they can be prosecuted for direlection of duty and lying to their constituents in the process of getting elected.. Bonner-polisi-weinstein-reid-biden..listen up...we are tired of your elitist bullshit...do your job or go to jail..
