As a responsible United States of America citizen, born and bred in the South, I cannot understand our politicians. Presently, there are ridiculous debates ongoing about the debts of America. Many of them have stated that we may not be able to pay our citizens — those who depend and HAVE PAID their portion to Social Security…not to mention those precious soldiers who are fighting our wars, to keep our peace. Do they really need to worry about how and IF they will be paid? What about their families? How do they survive IF American politicians cannot get their act together and recognize — hey, we need to make decisions/agree to disagree/but get the issues resolved.

If our credit rating is downgraded – just what will happen? That question brings me back to the early 1980’s when my immediate family was going through a crisis. Yes, it is true, we struggled, but I managed to readjust the family budget, and I went back to work – just to have a steady income to pay our bills. My husband was in construction at the time and the developers, contractors and such were similar to the American politicians. They would not pay! It was truly the worst financial crisis of our time as a married couple, but we dug our way out and survived, without filing bankruptcy and we worked hard to be accountable and responsible for all the commitments we had made.

I don’t know how you are feeling about the issues in Washington, but I feel it is time to get rid of all of these “Good ole boys.” Maybe they should take all of their millions, contribute them to the country to help America rise above these financial mistakes. Maybe they should have to worry about surviving with Social Security, Medicare and/or getting paid as a soldier — that is IF they get paid.

This is a disgrace. Next year is the year for all of us to take a stand and to tell Washington we are mad as Hell and we are not taking this anymore!

I am ashamed of all of them! Living in South Carolina, I am still a bit disgraced over our politicians. Yes, next year I will do all I can to voice my concerns by voting, and I suppose I will continue to voice my opinion in my blogs!

American Politicians…there’s nothing like ’em! Why can’t they simply recognize America has made the financial mistakes and it is time to pay these bills! We cannot allow our country to keep slipping away. It is time for “Made in America” to actually mean something again — instead of “Made in China….” “Made in Vietnam….” Etc. Etc. Don’t even get me started about all of the telemarketers who call me from India, or customer service reps who reside there to make hotel reservations, or to assist with complaints or service! Nothing gets under my feather quicker than the inability to understand someone who cannot speak the same language as I do so we really can communicate!

And now, I’m off of my soapbox for today. Stay tuned – I just might have another opinion!
