Anyone else watch the State of the Union address last night? I know Roomie & I did.
It's time to start calling these ass-clowns in Washington out. I don't care if you're a Republican or a Democrat. Shut the fuck up, sit down, and do something. Why are you in Washington if your only goal is to advance your personal agendas? The fact that Republicans are smug right now makes me sick. What do you have to be smug about? You're attempting to successfully railroad important agendas; like health care reform and the forming of a fiscal task force, and then lead your constituencies (through misinformation) to support your railroading. Good job.
Open letter to Congress:
Dear Senators of the United States of America,
Please, for one moment, be embarrassed. All of you. Be embarrassed for sitting on your hands, for disrespecting this country through your lack of action, and for being power-mongering, self-promoting, pompous individuals. Please, for one moment try to act in a cohesive nature. While Senators need to remain loyal to their constituents, they need to remember that they are not STATE officials. They are NATIONAL officials representing the people. Please work on bringing us together and not dividing us. Please do not be afraid of change. While change for the sake of change is not good; neither is lack of change due to fearing the unknown.
Hopefully, you took a moment to feel embarrassment or some sense of remorse.
Now sit down and get to work please.
Side Note. This HPC post was sparked due to a political text message battle between my father and I. Excerpt:
Dad: Must have been pretty embarrassing watching the collapse of your leftist liberal progressive party the last few weeks huh... [Let's see. He got Leftist, Liberal, Progressive. He forgot socialist & communist]
Me: Uh, I don't think we watch the same news. That's an interesting spin Fox gave you though.
Dad: Sorry honey. That's from your side. You guys are done. I'm serious. The great scam is over. [I'm really not sure what "your side" means. I'm assuming some "lefty news station"]
Dad: It's ok honey. We're more than happy to welcome you back to reality.
Me: Hahaha. Thanks for the offer, but I'll stay where I am. Believing that changing a dysfunctional system is neither scary nor apocalyptic.
Dad: I agree with you completely honey. Every single thing he (Obama) stands for and is trying to do to this country is totally dysfunctional and dangerous to our long term success. I think the country waking up to this and taking back control is great! It's a center right wing country honey. It will never be socialist. [See what he did there. Said we agreed, to trick me! I'm smart though...he was using word play. Also. He managed to fit the word "socialist" in.]
It goes on and on and on and on...I won't bore you with the rest...just to say we finally agreed to agree on the fact that the fiscal irresponsibility of the 4 years prior to Obama taking office was a travesty that neither of us can stomach. Then we said love you. awwww.
