All That's Left of 2011

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Ah, New Year's Eve, FINALLY! I am not sad at all to see 2011 fade into the dusty history.

I think we have all about had it with all the political nonsense, lies, avoidance, delays, threats, dire warnings, chicanery and outright deciet.

Our politicians, all of them, have proven they really don't give a damn what the people in this country want. They are busy feathering their own nests with all the trickery they can come up with with absolutley no regard whatsoever for the well being of our nation.

I would love to see them at least feel guilty, but truly believe they are incapable of any feelings of guilt or shame.

I very strongly feel we should vote every single one of them, other than the Freshmen, out of office WITHOUT pensions, deluxe health care and NO Perks.

Many of them should be jailed for the criminal acts they have done, but no one seems to get it that they break the law, they go to jail, no matter who they are. Oh, I forgot: THEY are above the law, and can do whatever they want to.

Their scare tactics are ruthless. They have the maturity level of 2 year olds. They throw temper tantrums and vile threats to each other.

We have had an absentee President who thinks it is perfectly okay to spend tax payer's dollars to campaign with and get himself elected. He has been away from office more than he has been present.

His foreign affairs policy is abysmal. He and his wife spend fortunes traveling all over the globe on money the rest of us have had to borrow from China.

He claims victory is HIS in getting Bin Laden, when the real fact is that it was our TROOPS who got Bin Laden, WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM THE PRESIDENT or any one else.

Our country is more racist now than it has been since the 60's, thanks to him. We had come a long way, and were nearly completely color blind until he started pitting blacks against whites, and yelling "Racist!" all the time things didn't go his way.

America is tired of the racist crap, tired of the lies, deceit and embarrassment.

This coming year is a chance for us to get things turned around.

I am talking about becoming INVOLVED with our nation, not just griping and talking about what we don't like.


We can do it, if we all put our shoulders to the wheel.

But we NEED to DO IT!

Let's bring prayer back to our schools and public places. Let's put all of our politicians on term limits, with the same health care and retirement the rest of us get.

Heck. While we are at it, let's put music and gym back in our schools too. I, for one, am not capable of teaching music, but I COULD teach workout routines! And, being a Sr. Citizen, I am not under time constraints, nor would I expect union wages or benefits.

A lot of us are Senior Citizens who could go far in bringing back morality and respect to our schools.

But we must become INVOLVED. If WE don't, we LOSE OUR NATION!!

All that's left of 2011 now are hours and minutes.

The new beginning is coming.

Let's make it COUNT!!!

Stay safe and healthy. Stay involved. Stay active.

    I think it is great that you have opinions and care enough about our country to voice them, even though I cannot agree with every point you made.
