THE POLITICAL NOTEBOOK
This the season!!
In my lifetime I have never seen such nonsense! I thought we went through the 60’s, and survived the 70’s and 80’s. You would think a country that came through those periods would learn not to panic. The world did not fall apart when the clock read 12:01 a.m. in 2000! But our elected officials are acting like children.
And when did Hollywood take over the news? Athletes and actors are writing the scripts.
This is the season to count our blessings. In times of political turmoil, we sometimes wonder if there are any blessings to count, but there are.
It’s not just the Federal Government, but State and Local governments as well. The Federal government wastes time and money promoting individual agendas instead of addressing issues which are truly troubling our country.
Our State government continues to collect outrageous taxes in the name of the environment and education, only to waste it on pet projects instead of public need. Unions are investing our retirement funds in foreign countries instead of America! Our State needs to return funds to local governments for the benefit of cities and their residents.
What has happened to us? Why is the average voter not outraged? Does everyone think there are free handouts? Where is the accountability of Government to the people?
The mushrooming situation is neither Democrat nor Republican…it is an across-the-board lethargy that has the Country in its grip. It is time to stand up and be counted…
It’s time to return values to our community, to be grateful for our diversity and treasure our moments with friends and family.
This is the season to count our Blessings and focus our efforts on a new beginning in our community while respecting the past.
