Where are the snows of yesteryear? Where are the ethics of yesteryear? Where are the politicians of yesteryear?
Where is the dignity of FDR?
Where is the straight-forwardness of Truman?
Where is the intelligence of JFK?
Where is the charisma of Reagan?
(I’m giving both sides a voice).
What we seem to have now is Who is King of the Hill? Who can pee further? Whose are largest? little boy games. And at the head of the slide on the playground is Billionaire Bully, the Ugly American. self-appointed emperor with no clothes.
Where is the common sense, let’s speak rationally, let’s negotiate, let’s listen to the people and find ways to better the situation without resorting to mud pies, insults, and temper tantrums?
This our country and human beings at stake, not the playthings of Congress and all politicians.
