As usual I could go on forever but we all have better things to do than rehash the
malfeasance of the current government. However, there are several things I must point out: punishment for the Benghazi debacle and the IRS employees union request.
The person in charge of setting up the penalties for those who apparently made a few
mistakes that caused the death of 4 people stated he absolutely assigned the proper
blame and the punishment, another government job in another department. That's heavy!
The IRS employee union has asked for a waiver from Obamacare. By the way while they won't be forced to have it they will be the entity enforcing us peons to
join or pay a fine! That won't be easy to swallow!
When it comes right down to it the real toxic point is those in power believe they
are royalty and we encourage it by remaining silent. It isn't okay for the President to
go play golf with Tiger Woods if we have to pay. It isn't alright for my former Congressman to have taken 162 junkets around the world while representing West Los Angeles.
For what he accomplished one would have been enough. It is an affront to
have a former disgraced governor and a former disgraced congressman run for public office again as if their actions were just a thing of the past. At least the public reacted the right way and neither succeeded. Maybe now they realize what they did wasn't okay.
Although so many of our elected officials act like they are in a fraternity or sorority they aren't and they are an embarrassment to our Country.
I hope we can make it known that their actions make them one and done. It is time for our Country to start respecting itself again.
