Well, I think a generally agreed statement would be that what is going on with the government shutdown and idiotic and embarrassing. I wouldn't be surprised if the other countries are laughing at us. We are suppose to be this super power. Instead we look like two kids fighting over crayons.
I see some posts on my facebook and how they side with the Republicans and say it's all the Democrats fault. Then I see posts that side with the Democrats and say its all the Republicans fault. I think this embarrassing tug of war is a reflection of ourselves. Politicians are human after all, and I use the word "human" loosely. I think we need someone like Bill Gates or Donald Trump to handle the country's budget. At least they know what the hell they are doing.
I don't know if I fit into either two sides. I think I the one that fits in the middle and is just pissed off. You know, if we normal people had a credit card, skipping payments, and still asking them to raise the limit, well you know what would happen. They would stop the credit card and have collection agencies stalking us. So please let's just keep borrowing from China or whoever and be completely in debt to them. Hey maybe they can use our middle class trick of opening another line of credit to another country to pay off the first one. Or they can get the thumbs out of their asses and actually come up with a solution to lower debts and rise income, and I do not mean new taxes. Hey we are taxed so much that I can actually feel a suction of a vacuum come out of my check before it's even in my hand. All this money we spend on salaries of stupid congressman when we could be paying experts on this matter. Real experts.
