Lately, it feels as if we are living a dream in the USA or to be specific a nightmare! What is going on with our country? How did we get here? How did our elected officials allow us to get to this point? As a current events buff since I was a child it is hard to stay away from the news on a daily basis. I like and choose to be informed, but these days it will drive you crazy.
Should we pass the bailout bill? I have listened to so many opinions and some of the brighest minds in this country who are not politicians do not believe it is the right thing to do. Is it the governments job to bail out everyone? Do we not have some responsiblity for getting into this mess and have the responsibility to get out? Are we creating an ever bigger problem for my kids to deal with? So many questions and fewer answers are currently floating around.
Can't we all get along? It was disgusting to see the reaction from both sides of the aisle when the house failed to pass the bill. Whether you are for it or not, the reaction from our "leaders" was appalling. At a time when the country needs leadership our leaders acted like 3 year olds. I know because I have one! The most appalling of them all was the Speaker of the House. Again, the so called "leader" was the most deplorable. It seems a resignation is in order. What do you think?
