    Regardless of which political party you support, is anybody besides me sick and tired of all of the garbage coming out of Washington, DC these days? Are you tired of all the double speak, lies, deceit, back-biting, finger pointing, political dirty tricks, failed policies, and just plain stupidity coming from our elected political leaders? What, if anything, do you plan to do about it?

    Is this any different than it has ever been? Do you forsee that it will ever change?

    We are talking about politicians. They have been a sleazy type of individual since the beginning of time.

    I don't mind the rhetoric. That's to be expected. It's the lack of leadership and direction that's driving me batty. Of course, that's regardless of which political party I support.

    What do I plan to do about it? Same thing as I've always done- vote.

    Totally agree but it just seems to me that the bunch of clowns we have in DC these days, especially Congress, is the worst I've ever seen in my 58 years of being on the planet. Will it change? I fear it will get worse before it gets better.

    BULLSHIT.

    Don't listen to the likes of Xotoxi. It doesn't have to be like this. Just because it's been fucked doesn't mean it needs to continue to be fucked.

    If you're still with us in 30 years look for that conservative bitch that was governor of Kansas or Missouri that is running for President. You'll know who to vote for if you want real change. :)

    Good post Big Black Dog and hell yes I am sick and tired of it. I doubt I will cast many (if any) votes for anyone currently holding office.

    xotoxi, honestly your attitude is partly to blame for what is in Washington today!

    Until we the employers demand more, demand better and take control of our employees, then we will do nothing but sit back and bitch and accept things, as they have always been!

    Please consider being proactive and fight for this nation!

    Vote them all out of office.

    Problem is there are too many voters out there too busy working to figure out what's going on.

    One group of liars and crooks has been replaced by another.

    Only difference is how much they're stealing from us.

    Before it wasn't all that much.


    Now it's gonna amount to about a third of all of our income literally being stolen from under our noses......and they've figured a way to make most of us like it.
