The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That being said, we sure have a bunch of total wackos in Washington.
Here we go again with talk of shutting down the government, sequesters, and all kinds of nonsense between the House and Senate because they can’t work together and agree on a damn thing. They remind me of a bunch of spoiled children crying, “If I don’t get my way, I’m going to take my ball and go home!”
That’s because they are a bunch of spoiled children. And the reason they are is because, just like the parents of spoiled brats who indulge their rug rats and reward them for their bad behavior instead of punishing them for it, we keep rewarding these idiots on both sides of the aisle by re-electing them to office. What we should be doing is paddling their collective asses and sending them packing.
Nothing ever gets accomplished by all of this nonsense, which is no more than political posturing. They need to stop bickering, forget party lines and their own personal agendas, and just solve the damned problems we have.
But of course they won’t. Spoiled children never get it because they’ve always had their way. They have never had to compromise. They have never had to deal with the consequences of their actions. Instead, it is you and me who suffer the consequences of a government mired in quicksand.
All it takes is for a few of our elected “leaders” to actually take a leadership role and stand up to the status quo and say “No more. I’m done playing party politics and I’m actually going to do the job I was sent here to do.” But, of course, they won’t. They’ll keep on doing the same old things, making the same old threats and singing the same old songs. It’s easier that way.
And do you know why? Because unlike the spoiled child who takes his ball and goes home, these idiots don’t have any balls. If they did, they’d stop all this nonsense, walk across the aisle, shake hands, and say, “Enough bullshit, this isn’t getting us anywhere. Let’s really work together for the good of the American people.”
