“Even as each member of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction voiced concerns about the struggling economy in their opening statements, it was clear right from the start of Thursday’s inaugural “super committee” meeting that the members do not agree on just how jobs should figure into their final deficit-cutting package.”  Read entire article here: http://www.nationaljournal.com/supercommittee/super-committee-s-first-meeting-dominated-by-jobs-20110908

Joint Select Committee on Deficit ReductionSpeaking from outside the first Super Committee meeting, Senator Thune said, “We gotta hope and pray that they can get this job done.”

When is the last time your boss or one of your clients looked at you pleadingly and said, “I hope and pray you can get this job done”?  Ha! Fat Chance!  You get the job done, and done well, or that paycheck or fee are in jeopardy!

Congress fiddles politely while America Burns

Hey, everybody, what’s happenin’?

You know what??

No one is doing anything about bringing America, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, back from the abyss.  And NOW is the time to do it.  Can’t wait for the 2012 election, can’t wait for Congress to come back from their holiday recess.

I don’t hear anyone speaking out about what is going on with this White House, this government.  But us, all of us, we know “what’s happenin’,” don’t we?  In the House and in the Senate, Republicans, Independents, and Democrats know too, and they know a lot more than they’re telling us, the American citizens.

But here we all sit, with our headaches and stomach-aches starting every time we listen to Obama on the TV.  Our country is in grave danger, and all we do is talk, talk, talk.  Listen to and watch the Conservative talk shows –  they’re right, most of the time.  But it’s talk!

America, it’s action time!  And if there will be talk by the Congress, speeches, townhalls, and appearances, why must it all be wishy-washy and namby-pamby?  And “respectful?”  When do we get someone up there who isn’t afraid?  Who speaks with honesty, who says outright what we are all thinking?  Who actually shocks us by stating our thoughts out loud?  My God, what a freedom that would be!  How liberating that would be!  It would be like winning a war!

It would be winning the war.
