BARRY’S BLOG TUESDAY 10-1-13
One republican representative was quoted on TV this morning saying: ” Since the republicans are getting blamed for the partial Gov. shut-down, we might as well hang in there until we get our way with this situation”.
My reaction was: “This may be the most brilliant thing said in Washington this week”.
These shut-down’s are painful, a disturbance and inconvenience to say the least. On the other hand, if a party has the courage of their convictions, then they should take the grief, and force change, and hopefully be right. Only history can validate these actions because the future is difficult to predict.
Political parties fighting over power and control is normal, and our constitution recognizes that and always has. The Press over time has become more bias but the Constitution also recognizes that. Since “We the people” have the ultimate power by electing our representatives, it then becomes time and patience. If we vote in the wrong party, then it becomes our fault.
So, as long as the bus’s run today, restaurants and coffee shops are open, Hospital’s and Dr’s are working, The Newspapers, Radio and TV stations are on the air, and we report to our jobs and have a paycheck on Friday….the shutdown is just a frustration for the gov. workers who are affected.
Lets hope cool heads prevail and the best for all concerned is the result. In the meantime I need to get my tires rotated!
Have a great day and be kind to yourself!
