    Politics has gotten ugly lately, I'm afraid.
    Bickering and slandering and accusations made.
    President Obama's under pressure to perform.
    Don't see how he can without Congressional reform.

    Just today they'll take a vote that he's already lost.
    Tea Party adherents claim we can't afford the cost.
    Never mind the fact that our economy is stalled.
    The response from Congress? The Republicans stonewalled.

    Democrats aren't all on-board... They'll nit and then they'll pick.
    Atmosphere is toxic and it's made the country sick.
    I am so disgusted with them all. I'm not alone.
    Their approval rating is the lowest ever known.

    No more will I tippy toe around it; they've been bought.
    Money plays a larger part in Congress then it ought.
    Saying it's philosophy will just excuse so much.
    Clearly all our Representatives are out of touch.

    Do the People's Business damn it! That's why you're all there.
    Work it out, for goodness sake and try to keep it fair.
    Spare the philosophical debates and get to work.

    “However political parties may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” George Washington

    I've always liked that one, never more true than it is these days...

    I'm with you, Mrs. Smeej. With VERY few exceptions, I'm sick of all of the crooks in the Congress.

    Gotta be sick of your crooks too? Am I right? I'd say both sides need to own up to their crap.

    I said ALL the crooks in Congress, didn't I? Of course there are "Dems" or DINOs who I would like to see unemployed. Charlie Rangel, Ben Nelson, any Dem who voted for that stupid misogynistic bill yesterday. In fact, there are only a few Dems I really want to keep. I'd be happy clearing the whole damned place out. ANYone in Congress who is more worried about their corporate donors and lobbyists than the people who sent them there to do the business of Congress should be drummed out of the Capitol building.

    I'm so very sorry Tery, I could only make the Thank You button work once.
    But on the plus side, that's way more often than most blind ideologists seem to be capable of gettin' it, so there is that.

    Anybody see the speech Obama gave last night?
    I thought it was very good; concessions Left and Right.
    He said that our Union's in a state but growing strong;
    Made another plea that Congress try to get along.

    Call me pessimistic but, from what I understand,
    Grand Old Party leaders and their candidates had panned
    Everything Obama said before he even spoke...
    Leading me to wonder if the system might be broke.

    I don't mean financially - there's cash up the wazoo -
    But there's no transparency on who's supporting who.
    We have got to get control of Congress. Rein them in.
    Make them work together now or no-one's gonna win.

    There must be some issues where the 2 sides can agree.
    President Obama said he'll sign them, so we'll see
    If, in an election year, Republicans will let
    Democrats have any wins. I doubt it. Wanna bet?


    ummm... Is $10,000.00 the minimum bet for Republicans?
