The Blame Game

government shutdownCan anyone muster the energy to say, “Happy Friday”?

Well here it goes, T.G.I.F.!

I know … I know, not too much “happy” going on in D.C., the nation’s capitol, nor in the homes of the federal employees whose jobs have been furloughed …. hmmmmm

Keeping it short and sweet today because not only couldn’t I sleep well last night, I am abhorred by how members of Congress, in particular those affiliated with if not belonging to the “Tea Party” … have decided that their personal vendettas against the POTUS have overridden their responsibilities to the American people to get back to work and pass necessary legislation to “re-open” the Federal Government.

Now, of course, is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country, whilst the elected representatives play the “blame game” to attempt to save face while the nation’s population looks on in awe! Grown men and women with law degrees who get more “hand outs” just for holding the position for a few years …. but their “hand outs” are for LIFE! Can you say “entitlement”?! As I looked on the popular social network, Facebook, yesterday, I felt inclined to visit CNN’s programs hosted by Anderson Cooper and Piers Morgan. They tried to air the nation’s “dirty laundry”, but the whole world stood watching these United States of America’s top representatives begin playing the most childish game ever … “It’s your fault!” Could we blame the POTUS for not wanting to negotiate his Affordable Healthcare Act for the many requests of the Tea Party and the Republicans they support and “puppet”? Or, should we blame the Republican members of Congress who say that it is all the Democratic party’s fault, in particular, Obama, to negotiate with seemingly in-house “anarchists” so that the health plan already voted into existence … ” … by the people, for the people and of the people …” … can be repealed by the POTUS. All I can say is that I am not impressed by this type of “blame game” that jeopardizes the lives of the very people who put these characters in office. I pray that they mature before we get invaded by true terrorists who are watching the “leaders of the free world” squabble like school yard children.

Try to have a great day, and, a wonderful weekend!
