Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
This is the sign that is over the front door of Aileen's and my house, our home, going OUT. Meaning that when someone leaves our house they are going into the ACTUAL Mental Ward.

I've always felt that way. When it is considered how much ugliness and killing and hatred there is in the world today, it actually makes perfect sense that this sign is over the door going out of the house.

Because that's where the real mental ward is.

President Obama, Republican Leaders to Meet As Sequester Cuts Look Likely - Yahoo! News

 

President Obama, Republican Leaders to Meet As Sequester Cuts Look Likely - Yahoo! News

What's really amazing to me is that the Republicans just for example, are not really showing in any way their respect for the principles on which the United States Congress was founded.  The founding fathers of the United States of America created the Constitution of the United States in 1789.  The Congress of the United States was actually based upon and set up on one very important principle.  The principle of compromise.

But the Republican Party and the tea party by virtue of the fact that they are refusing to compromise in any way are basically showing very clearly that they have no respect for the people who dedicated their lives to give them, the Republican Party to act with such disregard and arrogance.  And I find that remarkable.  Not only do I find it remarkable I find it inexcusable.  And I find it absolutely insulting.  For the Republican Party to claim that they are actually patriots of this country.  And yet do not respect the spirit of compromise, upon which the United States Congress was originally based and set up.  Almost makes the Republican Party look like a bunch of liars when they claim they are patriotic.  Because if they were patriotic they would respect the very principles upon which this nation was founded which they are not showing any respect for by their unwillingness to compromise.

And yet the reality is that compromise is something that no longer hardly exists in the United States anymore.  And it's not only the right wing extremists of the Catholic and Christian religions, who are uncompromising.  Because as a result of the right wing extremists of the Catholic and Christian religions being unwilling to compromise their actions of course precipitate their counterparts doing the same.

And so nobody compromises anymore.  And yet everyone wants to claim that they are patriots to this country.  Everybody wants to wrap themselves up in the flag of the United States and claim that they are a patriot and that they are a good American.  And yet if they are such good Americans, then why are they not willing to respect the very principles upon which this nation was based?
