I have been watching and listening to what is happening in the world today and have been getting more and more depressed. I was extremely happy to see that the demonstrations in Egypt have not turned into a bloodbath and that the People have actually accomplished the goal of outing someone who did not have their citizen's or their country's best interest at heart. Due to their success it has made me even more disgusted and depressed about our country. When are American's going to stand up and hold Washington accountable?
When are we going to deal with the education problem, the healthcare problem, the homeless problem, the unemployment problem, child abuse, elder abuse, etc....we have enough to do in our own backyard that we need to stop being the POLICE for the world and clean up our own backyard.
I am so SICK and TIRED of hearing the politicians argue and hold hostage programs that we need to initiate and programs that would work if they were fixed until they get their BIG piece of the PIE that benefits no one but the richest in this country. The Republicans (if anyone is paying attention) are trying to create an even bigger distance between the classes. They have almost totally obliterated the middle class, so that we are left with hard-working (almost destitute) people and the rich get richer and blame the hard-working people for the problems we are facing.
According to the Republicans (who claim they are for fiscal responsibility) if we just get rid of Obamacare, medicare, welfare, foodstamps, making work programs, etc. Everything will be better..........my question and yours should be "better for whom".
A country is judged on its care of the young, old and ill. We, as a country, are FAILING on every level that is pertinent and we need to STEP IT UP.
How will you face judgment day? How will you make a difference in the world today (or just your corner of it)? Are you a sheep or are you willing to stand up for what you believe?
Hug your kids, kiss your partner and try to make your corner of the world a better place. Have a blessed day and a better tomorrow!
