I dont care if you are a Democrat or a Republican..This is NOT a political message. In fact, at this point I dont think most Americans even care if one is a Democrat or a Republican..
Anyway, I jsut find it absolutely incredible that at this point in our nation's history that both the House and the Senate or on recess. its just incredible. Why isn't the President of the United States calling them back into session and keeping them there until a GOOD budget- one that is respected and credible- is worked out. And where are the others leaders- Reid, McConnel, Pelosi, and Boehner- why are they not insisting on returning right away..Its nothing short of embarrassing, disappointing, you name it. I even called all of the offices of my Representatives to voice my outrage ..( I know, I know, like they care what I have to say).
What is really happening and has been happening is a void in leadership and confidence.
Again, this is NOT a political message.. I could care less if anyone is a Republican or a Democrat ! Plenty of blame to go around. The question is what to do about it now? And the answer is to LEAD!!!!!!!
So far its like your house is burning down, you call the fire department, and then you are placed on hold!
JMHO D Hope these people get off the beach- go back to work right away! They can always
take a recess in November or December!!!
Ham Radio Class for the persons with an extensive T.B.I. held in Sept August in Bemegi <sp>... COLDEST PLACE end up in the middle / late summer after all on my journey to the airport in Va.... it was in the high / mid 80's ... oooo the days of history past... beautiful just down right lovey... place.. but it was pretty chilly. especially for a skinny boy. GREAT TRIP!
Here is some history for you D.... on the 17th of Feb.1968 a SAT AFTERNOON... Mr. Cronkite and a few other journalist covering the Famous TET Offensive.... were driven in to cover the battle.... my real good friend in my tent ... as I recall drove him into the City. now getting STRANDED sorta <SEPARATED from my outfit that afternoon turned out to be my NIGHT to face that Boogy Man. and no where near my first situation but turned out to what seemed like the longest night I ever saw. and the next day... made it to the ramp.. as it became a serious piece of real estate, as we were backed up to the Perfume River ... BUMMER FOR SURE.... My career in the Marines ended there as I was shot thru the brain at or about 11 or 12 noon...
sure was wishing to be back drinking that "Cherry Coke" at that soda fountain....but
Cyp.... isn't this a fact to stick to? "Help...Would someone be kind enough to point out... how moving averages are determined? and the valid use of same? anything simple??? " or do we show.. if you DON'T KNOW IT...Its your loss... ahhhhh i think this maybe only in America.... I BET...
Not to be one to talk out of turn either but as I see it if these "elected officials CAN'T or REFUSES to play in the sandbox together and ends up causing this Once Great Country to get our credit rating lowered.
D: my feelings dare the same... I can't believe this is my country that I took a bullet thru the brain leaving me minus one third of my brain missing....
"hidden price of wars"?
And you know what else is sad. The Politicians seem dumber than - - - -....And also the media. We have 4 24hour news stations that pump nothing but negativity into our lives 24 hours a day. Even when things seem to be turing around, the media mages to still pipe in doom and gloom. Its interesting how critical the media is of the politicians, yet the networks seem to have absolved themselves of any ethical responsibility to this country. Just eh other day on CNBC I heard guest say we are going into depression, then another that the s and p is going to 800, -- and the march goes on and on. Instead of CNBC trying to restore some calm and confidence, they do just the opposite. Anything to scare the hell out of everyone. So I blame them as much as anyone else. The media in this country is out of control. Dumber Politicians, much less educated population, and horrific media. This is not the same country at all that I grew up in as a boy. It was so much better- people were so much different. Its very sad. D
Hopefully during their "recess" the law makers are back home in their districts communicating with their constituents. I'm guessing they will get an earful of complaints and suggestions which can help them move forward when they return to DC
Yeah... Lets NOT FORGET... They shall all receive FAT CHECKS as well... I can recall the days.. they made you feel, they really cared.... but in the past.. some years me think NOT.. And I was fortunate to have a very considerate congressmen when I returned from S.E. Asia. Even passed a bill before the house w/ my name on it..
TIMES HAVE REALLY CHANGED!
