I Am Really Sick and Tired of How Our Country is Operating

Posted: February 18, 2010 in Uncategorized
It has been awhile since I have placed a rant here on Facebook.  I have been in sponge mode for the past few months and the political rhetoric and the lack of action in Washington has left mentally and spiritually tired.  My emotions have run the gambit and I would say that it is probably not wise for me to even write due to the fact that I may come off in a jumbled diatribe.  I will start with the straw that broke my back, the Tom Tancredo statements at the Tea Party Convention.

This joker made a case for ‘literacy tests’ for voters of ‘foreign’ descent; ‘literacy tests’ for those who can’t speak english.  I shouldn’t be surprised but in laymens terms, this guy is arguing to re-establishment of Jim Crow and voting rules pre-Civil Rights Bill of 1964.  Is this the country that the Tea Party claims that they want back???  What is conservative about this???  How does ‘literacy tests’ keep our taxes and the deficit down???  All the blood that was spilled by people of color and women, just for the fair chance to vote and here comes this clown arguing the re-establishment of ‘literacy tests’?  Our citizens SHOULD know this history and yet they sit there and cheer and clap in approval.  Oh, lets bring back lynching and separate but equal while we at it…This is the country that so many people want back.  That is THEIR AMERICA….Nice.

Then there is our government not getting anything done.  One of my fears in the election of President Obama was that he would not get anyone to work with him on any issue.  Really, his own party has helped he become a first term, lame-duck President.  The Democrats are such punks, they won’t exercise any leadership at all.  Get something done!!!!  At this rate, I do feel like my vote was wasted, these are the things that I will remember when I go back to the voting booth.  Also, at this point, I don’t want to hear what the Republicans have to say because everything they say is for political expediency. It is all about scoring points instead of coming up with solutions with our country’s issues.  This goes into my main point of this…

I am really done with the way our politics are going.  Our country is steeped with some many issues; issues that should be worked through by the best and brightest.  I do believe that difference of opinion and variety is good, God love variety as well; look at creation itself.  Both parties are doing the political boxing match, just throwing insults and jabs back and forth, while the working men and women of this country are getting reamed for every dollar they have.  The news channels just keep showing the day to day barbs and we are at or over 10% unemployment. (Even higher for communities of color)  Healthcare costs are skyrocketing, companies are pocketing money instead of hiring, the IRS still wants their cut, a college education is becoming more out of reach for average folks, people are hungry and all our elected leaders can do is go to conferences (pep rallys) throw barbs or just quit the fight all together.  We don’t have the best and the brightest in office right now.  Both parties are loaded down with rich idiots, and it is showing.  The change of our country is going to have to come from the grassroots.  Not through political parties, but through people caring about others, like God loves and cares about us.  Maybe I have been a fool, but Caesar and his cronies can have it…(I think political TV and radio coverage will go on my Lent list.)

    I feel u on this one…I read the book of Ecclesiastes yesterday and man it hit the spot…why do people chase money when it can burn instantly, why do people want so much power when it is all meaningless, what good is having a kingdom when all people are looking for is someone to bow down to them. This world will never know what true wisdom is until they seek God!
