……Adults, to lead, direct, contain and return government to it’s original boundaries. This is what “we the people” should be advertising for. We’ve had all sorts of leaders the good, the bad and the ugly in the history of the United States. We have never however, had a such a huge group of “Peter Pan/ Tinkerbells” in charge of important things like Justice, Immigration, Security, Military, Education and the executive branch. Seriously the shear amount of tantrums, back biting and revenge taking reminds one of Junior High School with Kindergarten rolled in for good measure. I’ve observed two year olds with brighter moral compasses then these pretend adults.
Apparently the Speaker of the House and the Senate Majority Leader exchanged verbal insults at the White House the other day. Mr Boehner apparently sunk to a new low in Congressional communications spurred on by Mr Reids typically insulting, insolent and down right offensive jabs and barbs. One the Speaker needs to grow up and learn that it doesn’t matter what someone says about you, yo’ mama, your job, your taste, or your political party no matter how impotent. Second Mr. Reid needs to stop being the nerdy, smarmy, smart mouthed, self righteous, 98 lb weakling who spends his time picking at other people’s scabs.
Seriously could we get some people in government who don’t act like kindergarteners who don’t have a clue how the real world works? Could we get some people who have run businesses, who paid taxes, written checks and who understand that government CAN NOT keep spending billions even trillions of dollars more than we take in each year?
When we’re not hobbled by the kindergarteners we’re faced with the pre-teens. Those politicians who are so wrapped up in their own ideologies that they can’t see or believe that most people don’t agree with them. Most people don’t think like them and most people can’t live like they do. The angst that these people experience when “we the people” don’t agree with them is almost comical. If it wasn’t so serious it would be funny but there is nothing funny about the inability to understand and acknowledge real facts. The numbers don’t lie and that brings us to the most troubling part of this analogy, the two year olds.
The two year olds are the voters who refuse to accept reality. They see it, they can’t help but see it. They simply won’t accept it. They categorically ignore the facts, they disbelieve the experts unless said experts agree with them, they kill the messenger. They continue to play with their legos, their dollies, their Matchbox cars to the exclusion of all else. When bad things happen they blame everyone else but themselves and then throw a temper tantrum until someone gives them what they want. They call people names and when the do get their way they make sure to make their enemies pay to the last mite. Even then they’re not satisfied until their offender is completely destroyed. There is no reasoning with a two year old. They have no tolerance for any other point of view then their own. There is no open minded philosophy here. There is simply do what I want NOW, and if you’ve seen or read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl you will remember that it never ends well. Veruca Salt was a very bad nut.
So it would be great if we could find some folks who are willing to Cowboy/girl up. People who are not interested in making a career out of politics. People who are not trying to find some cushy job with golden parachute benefits, like retirement after one tour of duty and an exemption to Obamacare as well as raises no matter what the economy is doing. Someone willing to tell the American people to stop throwing a tantrum and sit down before they get spanked. Someone to remind us that we are adults and thus responsible to not simply ourselves but to generations unborn. After all the culture of terminating life in the womb and getting rid of the units (people over 70) won’t be able to kill all of the future generations.
Not that they won’t try, because you know anything that’s inconvenient must be gotten rid of. We can’t have our sons and daughters “punished by a baby”. (Don’t want your sons punished- teach them to keep “it” in their pants, don’t want daughters punished- teach them to keep their legs crossed. That is the ONLY way to keep from procreating and even Planned Parenthood /Murder Incorporated should know that but then again see the paragraph on Pre Teens. That explains so much).
