I am sick and tired...

of the current news. I don't know about you, but it is so dark and down and depressing. I am one who usually watches the news (fox, cnn, nbc, abc, cbs) and reads all the "online papers" (wsj, nyt,) and keeps up with current political blogs and websites. I do this because I want to be informed. Lately, however, I don't want to be informed. I don't want to hear it anymore. All I hear and see are lies, infidelities, murders and crap crap crap. Ugh. I can't even make sense of the political junk that's been going on. It's so disappointing. I am truly sickened by the state of affairs of our government. It's disgusting. As an American I demand much better than this. I demand a President and a Congress that takes things seriously, that cares much more about it's citizens than does this current parcel of idiots.

We can't even get our President to wear a dern tie (I know it sounds trivial, but it matters!). For goodness sake, they've made him into a Chia pet. Ugh.

Our "leaders" in Congress are so bold as to tell us to our faces that they don't give a crap what we think and we are expected to take it. It's just ridiculous. I certainly hope that a better kind of people step up to the plate this November. I will vote. That's the kind of "change" we need. Professionals. People who know what they are doing and do it well. Not pandering jokesters who are drunk with their own power and recklessly plow through the Constitution without a cop in sight.

Your thoughts?

You know what I think. A resounding Amen from me, sista!

There ought to be TERM LIMITS for the Senate (why are old old old old FARTS stuck in the 60's in their heads trying to keep it the 60's now? still there???? IDIOT VOTERS who are apathetic!!!).

Voters kept Kennedy there. He died or he'd still be there. WE need to vote them out and if we can't do that then we are a communistic country pretending that votes count. Are the people being heard - have they been since 1776???

Two others beat me to it. Amen Sister Amen.
You know this is one of my pet peeves.
This man was elected entirely on the color of his skin and had nothing to do with his substance. People are now reaping the "rewards" of their decision.
There is so much corruption in the entire system. I agree whole heartedly with Sarah. Two terms are all any of them need. One in the house or senate and the second in jail!!
As long as we are a nanny state and promise people everything, this type of corruption will continue. People need to wake up and realize that NOTHING IS FREE!!!
Better go or maybe I should just cut and paste this to my blog and call it a post:)
