Whatever the answer is, it's getting quite ridiculous the dichotomy in the ruling houses. I wish they would stop worrying about being re-elected and bad mouthing each other and focus on passing laws which are good for this country as a whole.
We have rampant unemployment, spending is out of control, but nobody wants to cut spending and nobody wants to raise taxes. The analogy "kick the can" is spot on.
I'm not terribly political, but I think it's important to stay informed. Those who do not learn the lessons of history are bound to repeat them.
According to a poll I heard last week, the average approval rating for the members of congress is ~ 38% (I may have the stat bungled a bit, so back off please
). This means if they were to come up for election today, only ~ 38% would keep their jobs.
I personally will have respect for the people who hold out the olive branch and concede some points in order to come up with a workable solution. Maybe there will be some more bi-partisanship once the turds return from their holidays.
Now that I think about it, almost every election I vote for whomever I hate less, or dislike less....which is a shitty way to vote. Except for a really creepy comment or two, I have nothing against captain tony so he would have my vote.
I did vote for Al Gore over W --- hey, his wife Tipper is a big deadhead. I will not share my point on view on that imbecile W as others probably don't agree with me. I just got so pissed off listening to W say how he rules according to God's will. Too bad Chaney didn't shoot W full of buckshot.
