Washington DC Follies

Issue

You must be delusional if you really believe this is going to be a very happy new year. And it points all the way to King Lear, written by Shakespeare about a descent into madness after bequeathing to his kids based on their flattery of him, and thereby bringing tragic consequences for all. A man who prefers to use fear, but masters something more near and dear... GOLF?

Folks, the same people that are supposed to be working for all Americans and who get paid rather nicely, but continue taking money from special interests are the ones who got us in the mess we are in. The US faces a series of legislative, foreign and domestic challenges, that we should all wonder why the fools on Capitol Hill and Pennsylvania Avenue felt entitled to take off on another undeserved vacation when there is so much to do and so little time left. The only way to save the day is by making sure you're registered to vote in the midterm elections. And while we are at it, this country needs a democracy reform. What about the Electoral College and the fact that there are two Senators who represent states with a fraction of the population of other, more substantial number of taxpayers with the same amount of votes? Is the USA practicing real democracy?

The new year started with yet another confrontation, this latest one adds Pakistan to North Korean, and Iran. The so-called leader who is said to lie and likes to practice deceit is expecting others to do as I say, not as I do. Whatever happened to leading by example?

It appears that once again, US citizens are being taken for fools, while the rich continue to fill their pockets. Remember that most of us are also taxpayers, which is more than we can say for the Washington leadership of this nation which we've been told over and over needs to be great again.

Not everyone is still buying the load of lies our leadership is dishing out and it appears that a US Spring, is just the type of wakeup call and reality check this country needs. Remember that your vote is your voice, so used it or lose it. Contact the so-called leadership to demand answers to your questions and make sure follow-up until you receive a satisfactory answer. Contact your representatives and let them know what you want and need from them. https://deargovernment.info/ https://dearmrpresident.org/

Finally, register and vote because our future is on the line. https://www.usa.gov/register-to-vote

Deplorables

These deplorable people are disgraceful, shameful, dishonorable, unworthy, inexcusable, unpardonable, unforgivable, shockingly idiotic, lamentable, regrettable, unfortunate, wretched, atrocious, awful, terrible, and dreadful. They've stayed with him through an unthinkable gauntlet: frequent criticism of war heroes, racist rhetoric, recording of him admitting to disgusting conduct, and a deluge of women charging him with sexual assault.

Another day, more lies...
