Another long time between posts!
I just don't seem to get the inspiration to write often.
Preferring to browse, and comment on the posts of friends made during my time here on blogger.
The turn of events in our government this week lit a fire under me.
The dismantling of the Republican party that started two years ago, was far reaching.
It amazes me the the party wasn't bright enough to do something to fix their issues and thus avoid this blood bath.
They had to see it coming?
Could it be that the rank and file are so conceited that they chose to ignore the warnings of their constituents, and continue business as usual?
Or do they honestly feel that business as usual was the way to get the country out of the mess that their leadership decisions, or lack there of, got us into.
Anyone who follows financial matters could see the train wreck coming in our economy.
Could it be that one or the other of our political parties accelerated the process in an effort to create a situation that made the other look bad at election time?
Or maybe one party or the other thought they could be the hero by bringing the dilemma to the front, and coming up with a miracle fix thus becoming the heroes, and gaining momentum in the election.
Nah, our government wouldn't stoop to such low measures.
Or would they?
Well, we all know how it worked out.
Eight years of George Bush ruined the Republican Party.
I don't think our reputation will be fixed any time soon.
We fell asleep at the wheel.
We should have been screeming for our elected officials to fix this mess early on.
While I'm worried about how a Democratic controlled congress will change the way we live.
I don't believe in our government taking from anyone of us to give to another, preferring that our non profit agencies take care of inspiring us to donate towards helping the less fortunate.
I believe that President elect Obama will head us in the right direction.
Lets all stay awake, and be certain that our voice is heard by contacting our congressmen and telling them how we feel.
What do you think?
Tuesday is Veterans day.
I'll be attending a memorial service as a member of my American Legion color gaurd rifle squad.
How will you honor our veterans?
