Why are we not cutting defense spending? Why do we need to be in the ME? Do we really need embassies when we have phones/computers/skype? Who paid for the Defense Department’s float in the Rose Parade (donations, I hope) and why do we keep wasting fuel on ceremonial fly-overs at parades and ballgames? Watch the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.
Government exists to help and protect citizens: note the plural. Simple, moral concept.
The people of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut are part of our family. Question to Congress: Do you look at Grandma and see love or a $ sign?
The current crop of Representatives has been down this heartless path before. Ask Eric Cantor about Joplin. Yep, Congressman, that town in Missouri which dared asked for help rebuilding after it was flattened by a tornado. Missouri is part of our family, in case you forgot.
The fiscal cliff nonsense is a wholly manufactured kerfuffle. The wizards behind this mess are happily being exposed. We have a chance in 2014 to form a government of the people, by the people, for the people.
There is no pricetag on decency, and I expect my Representatives to know this. After all, the government works for us. All of Us.
GOP reminds me of the intoxicated gentleman lying across the board sidewalk, reaching out and white-knuckled gripping the edge, saying, “I’ll climb this fence if it takes all night.”
