Sunday Funnies

Perhaps you've had the pleasure of seeing our politicians on TV this week. Many have said some pretty nice things about the new president and administration and many have said things not so nice.

A radio blowhard has announced he wants Obama to fail. Mighty white of him, wouldn't you say?

Bi-partisanship is being bashed from both sides and rightly so in my view.

The republicans lost big in this last election and there is a reason for that. Their policies and programs, their ideology and practices were a total failure and a disaster for our nation on many levels.They have been repudiated. If I can get over it, let bygones be bygones, then they damn sure ought to be able to do the same; instead it sounds like so much sour grapes from them at this early stage.

If not, then maybe they should be ignored or maybe they should be looked at in the light of day. If that happens we will end up going down the road of congressional hearings, criminal and political trials for malfeasance in office and a bunch of other things they will definitely not like.

One wonders if they get it. We are on the brink of a potentially ugly time in our history if they believe we've forgotten who got us here. Let's hope it doesn't go that way.

I'm all for open debate on what should be done to help our economy, our international status and our national moral; it just needs to be productive. Do you suppose we can make that happen?

Not if we attack anybody who disagrees with us.
