Our dysfunctional government and the people we’ve elected – both Democrat and Republican – can’t lead or work together. This country is in big trouble.
But wait, there’s some good news: The billionaire and millionaire playboys of the NFL have come to an agreement on how to split up their loot, and there will be football this year. Don’t mention that most of us can only afford to watch it on TV, if then.
What’s wrong with this picture? There’s a pervasive greed at the top that’s bringing this once great nation down. Where are the human values that were once a part of our culture? How can our leaders lead when re-election is the No. 1 priority and campaigns never end?
They tell us we all have to sacrifice, but the only ones sacrificing are those least able to afford to. I’ve never heard one person in government say anything about doing away with any of their own perks, some of which are obscene.
I may be a pessimist, but I just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
