Racing For Our Lives

There is a competition we are in that most of us didn’t sign up for.

Trump tweet today: With only a very small majority, the Republicans in the House & Senate need more victories next year since Dems only obstruct, no votes.

I know, I know, “no votes” makes no sense stuck on the end like that. I have no idea what Manchild meant there.

And can we also ignore the ridiculous irony of 45, a Republican, whining about obstruction again? The point I’m concerned about is this theme in our public forum for more than a year now: competition. I am unclear on exactly who is involved, but I know for sure the losers, no matter who wins, are the citizens of the United States of America.

Like a bunch of little boys getting into a fist fight over whose daddy can beat up whose daddy, they have some imagined race or competition between, apparently, political parties. They’d rather waste our time and our lives playing slappy face with/at each other instead of working to improve the state of the nation and the lives of its citizens.

The President of the United States appears to have no idea (even though he promised in his oath) that it’s his job as head of the executive branch of the government to uphold the laws of the land. The Affordable Care Act is law, and a lot of Americans depend on it for affordable health insurance.

Many, too many, members of Congress appear to be involved in the competitions, too. They’re concerned about victories and undoing anything the black guy did. They appear to have no motivation other than their racism and general nastiness/greed, and they are willing to burn the whole fucking country to the ground so they can plant a flag in the ashes and rubble. Fuck them. They work for us. They need to be reminded. And they need to never, ever forget it again. There are more where they came from so they can fuck right off if they don’t want to do the job they asked for. I’m calling the “race” right here.

Enough stupid. Enough lying. Enough chest thumping. It’s time to work for us or get the fuck out of the way for someone who will.
