We all are aware of the race to raise the debt ceiling. I say race although it seems to me no one was in any hurry to get any legislation passed as we grew ever closer to the deadline. Much of the country anxiously spent very uncertain days wondering what would happen even as the world watched us. No matter, even with all this, Congress seemed unable or unwilling to act as they played their games with the American People.
Recently as I was scanning through a vintage magazine from 1931 I came across an item which reminded me how little things have changed. Seems as though the more things have changed we have been brought full circle to that which once was and is now again.
I quote this which was from the B'nai B'rith Messenger, (Los Angeles), 1931, "Congress adjoined, many have returned home to repair their Political fences. They've had lots of experience in Wire-Pulling, but may find only Post-Holes left".
Come on America, let us demand that our government pay attention to us and what is best for the country rather than promoting their on agendas at our expense.
What do you think about all the theatrics of our government? I suggest we get rid of all of them and start fresh with persons who have the interest of the American people foremost in their minds and hearts.
