My wife and I are leaving Minnesota Tuesday October 15th to visit our nations capital, to see the Smithsonian museums, and the Mall, something we have been planning for many years. So this week we go and either take pictures of barricades or we can actually walk up to the Lincoln Memorial and take some. It is insane to me as a citizen of this country not to be able to visit things that were created for us like statues and monuments. Our leaders are dysfunctional and they should all be forced to read the books 5 dysfunctions of a team by Patrick Lencioni and "crucial confrontations" by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan and Switzler. We wanted to visit the classic sites that made America great, but instead we may be visiting the New America led by separatists, elitists, thats poorly organized, severely dysfunctional and governed by who has the largest wallet or backed by special interests or lobbyists. They toy with words to point fingers and blame at each other and try to evoke emotions from people and get them to yell and make nasty signs to the opposing party to support their bizarre ways of passing laws & running a government that our forefathers would roll over in their graves from what they would see and need to weep about how badly things have become. All the politicians say God bless America, but our new saying should be God Help Save America. I will no longer contribute to either party, I can no longer support this continuing ineptitude!
