Kick Out The Clowns!
AN ARTIST, A US CITIZEN SPEAKS OUT:
It's not enough that the endowment for the arts is in a dire situation.
It's not enough that health care and Social Security are in jeopardy.
It's not enough that a sizable portion of my retirement funds have been flushed down the toilet.
It's not enough that my country, which enjoyed an A number one credit rating for seventy years, has lost its status. But it is enough with this government. I've had it!
I am an angry citizen. My Government is a bunch of spoiled, pompous guys and gals who put their own re-election (jobs) over the welfare of the country, talk incessant gibberish, never answer a question straight forward, are irresponsible, can't meet deadlines, are full of themselves and a whole lot of hot air.
The men and women of Congress have disgraced us with their partisan bickering. These last years, they have acted like spoiled children. As much as I hate the Fall season, November can't get here too soon.
Honey and I are not voting for anyone who is in office now. We want fresh and new faces. More importantly, we're jumping on the bandwagon for TERM LIMITATIONS. I suggest: Four years in office for Senators, two years in office for members of the House, and then back home they go "thank you very much for your serrvice."
Politics should not be a life long occupation. The elected official should come to DC, serve his/her country for a sort period of time, and then return, with God speed, to whatever it is they did in civilian life. Congress members are at home on vacation now. They couldn't get it together till the ninth hour and made a mockery of themselves and my country. They should stay where they are. Kick out the clowns and send in the alternates! As far as I'm concerned, these guys are excused for inexcusable behavior.
