Yesterday, I did something in all my years on this planet that I have never done before.
I attempted to call a few U.S. Congress people to ask them "what the hell they are doing?!"
That was a huge move for me, something in my entire life I had never even considered doing. But, even I have had it with these people that supposedly represent and care about this great country. They don't, they only care about themselves.
Don't get me wrong, I believe (or did) in the process. I vote in every election. I'm a registered Independent and have been for my entire adult life. I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats on numerous occasions. I always try and vote for the best person, not for a party.
I am not one of those people that think their party is right all the time and the other side is always wrong. In my opinion, that is an idiotic belief. People make mistakes and some people have better ideas on some issues than others. Doesn't matter if the have an (R) or a (D) after their name. That's just the way life is.
After I cast my vote, I accept the results and let the system do what it does.
But now the system is broken. We have two sides that refuse to give into each other even a little bit and the U.S, is suffering because of it.
It amazing that these idiots will let their own egos drag this country down and they aren't doing a damn thing about it.
I tried calling 4 congress people on both sides of the aisle. I was put on terminal hold and never got the chance to talk to a real person.
I consider myself very easy going when it comes to our government, but even I am fed up with these people.
Every single one of them needs to be replaced and we need to elect people that will at least agree to talk to the other side. They don't have to agree with their stance on an issue, but at least listen and see if it has some validity.
When the US Congress is doing so bad that even I feel compelled to pick up the phone, you know it's really gotten bad. The U.S. Congress has lost this country.
These politicians are loving the fact that they are being asked to appear on talks shows and interviews on TV. It's feeding their giant egos even more. It is not the media's job to run the country. But, maybe it is time for the media to stop interviewing these idiots until they actually do something.
We hear about the President and Congresspeople shutting out the media. Maybe it's time for the media to shutout them.
I know it will never happen, but I can assure you that if I ran a network, I would cut these people off, until they started doing something to fix this mess.
Yes for the first time....I'm MAD AS HELL AND I CAN"T TAKE IT ANYMORE!
Now! Pick up the damn phone!
