You Know What I Don't Like - 12/04/2011


   You know what I don't like, I don't like the term "Happy Holidays" when it is used instead of Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. The New Year is symbolically a pressing of our reset buttons. Happy holidays is a hollow meaningless shortcut that lumps them all together.

   That's one of the problems today, everybody lumps everything together. They call Congress simply Congress, they call the President simply the President, when there is a distinct difference between all people including Congress and the President. Some Congress people would probably give you their shirt if they thought you needed it, some Congress people would stab you in the back in a heartbeat. Our government is a government of the people, they are a microcosm of America, they are people just like anybody else.

   The problem we face as people is separating good from bad, both in our own lives and in who we vote into office. It's easy to blame all of America's problems on the government. One thing about them, they're stupid enough to be a good scapegoat. The record of both our Congress and our President is unbelievable, they fail at best, anything they're involved in they tend to screw up. The "other" party always likes to play the blame game. They are both guilty of it but I think the Democrats are better at it. When Obama was elected he was supposed to make a difference, he was not going to play the same games. What he has done is play more. What makes me sad is the Republicans probably won't get their act together and have a suitable candidate that will beat Obama. I think were going to have at least four more years of Obama and that's also what I don't like. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
