Who are these children?

When our members of Congress have defaulted on their responsibilities for years, have been in bed with special interest groups and big business, we shouldn’t be surprised at the strange “children” they have produced.

Lax oversight of the financial institutions, gross waste in the military and sterile leadership have put every citizen in harms way. Unfortunately our children’s children will suffer from inept decision-making.

People say, “Nobody knows what will actually happen to the future.” We don’t want to know!

We do know that nothing good can come from their endless pontificating and narcissism.

Our freshman politicians seem to be driven by passion and lack reason. Our senior leadership can’t imagine giving up any power or control. Wisdom, nobility and honor are left in the dust. So they rearrange the deck chairs as the ship sinks.
