I’ve always fancied myself as a guy who’s seldom at a loss for words.
Though my spelling issues are well documented, I’d consider myself fairly adept at using the English language in an appropriate way.
But that depends on the place, crowd, and setting I find myself in.
However, I must admit I’m at a real loss to come up with the words to describe what I find is happening, or more appropriately isn’t happening, in the halls of Congress.
The men and women that get paid extremely well to represent us seem unable and unwilling to do much more than talk about what members of the other party should do, what they won’t allow to happen, or making some of the most boring television you can find on the tube today.
Their constant grandstanding, and the obstructionist attitude I have observed, would I think make the founders roll over in their graves.
Many have made careers doing nothing, or doing little, that addresses issues we every day Americans are faced with.
The current debate over yet another short-term funding extension to keep the wheels of government turning, and the government printing presses turning out money, reminds me again that if business ran like the federal government does, little business of consequence would ever get done.
Disappointing, disgraceful, and disheartening are the only words I can think of to describe what we’re seeing from capital hill.
Fortunately their impact on our every day lives is generally pretty minimal.
That’s the way I see it.
