What you are about to read is a 100% full fledged opinionated editorial written by none other than me, myself and I. It has no reflection on this newspaper, my family, or anyone else but me, myself and I. Feel free to send your comments to
stupid? (adj.) not intelligent : having or showing a lack of ability to learn and understand things. : not sensible or logical.
Let me start by saying "if the shoe fits then wear it." I promise you this is not about ALL people in public office, because I know for a fact that many of them accept their elected positions with gusto and zeal and continue to be good people, but as time passes they get locked into an insidious system of gridlock and sheer stupidity.
I ask you as politicians, "Do you think we're stupid"? Do you really believe that the American people are so ignorant that we don't see through your games of silliness and childish behavior? You attempt, in your own feeble ways, to tell us things are so complicated that we really wouldn't understand. Well if your job is so complicated that you can't explain it to us, then maybe the fact is you don't really understand what you are supposed to be doing in the first place! Do you think your job is so much more complicated than the average laborer in the field? Do you think you can take over the average carpenter's job and cut rafters or interior trim to the proper angle for a good tight fit? Can you ask an auto mechanic to walk you through the parts of a car and how they function when the gas combusts in the piston chamber and creates a force to move your car forward? Your job is no more complicated than most jobs in this country.
You think so highly of yourself as being more educated, more thoughtful, better than most, when really and truly the American people are laughing at you! You have failed the American people for too many years and, in my personal opinion, you have made a mockery of this country and its people. We are laughed at by the world but yet you tell us that "America is stronger and safer than it's ever been before"! You tell us that we are going through a government shutdown when really and truly this so called shut down is simply a partial shutdown.
You have laid off non-essential people. If these people are so non-essential then why did you hire them in the first place? I am a self employed individual and if I had a non-essential person working for me I would go broke. The only non-essential person I may hire occasionally is somebody who has asked me for a handout and I ask them to work for the money first. It's not your job as a politician to hand out my money to non-essential persons. That is my responsibility as a blessed citizen of this country. Not yours!
Do you think we're stupid? Do you think that waiting until the last day and the last hour of the day to accomplish part of your work somehow makes you a hard worker? Not in my books! I know about deadlines and I know how it feels to have my back pressed against the wall with projects, but I sure don't take time off when those things occur. I work Saturdays and Sundays after church and late evenings to accomplish my work but no, not you! You find ways to take time off, when in reality you should have been working months and months before these so-called crises to handle the matters of this country. When you leave early with your work unfinished I consider this to be a blatant dereliction of your duty and you should be fired!
Do you think we're stupid? Do you think we are so dumb when you try in your own feeble fashion to point blame on others when the fact is that three fingers are pointing right back at yourself? Your self indulgent arrogance is so strong that it stinks! You feel like you have the most important job in the world. What about the electrician that keeps the lights on for you? Do you think you are more important than him? What about your chauffeurs and guards? Do you think your job is more important than theirs? What about the guy that is sweating his head off laying the asphalt on our roads so you can ride over them on your way to work? Are you more important than they are?
Quite frankly I think you are impotent and not important! Your work has created an impotent society with impotent minds that have become numb to the real issues in America. The real issues of this country are right here at home and not halfway around the world. Our problems here at home are problems that you have allowed to fester for too many years and we as a people have been asleep at the wheel. It is a system that you and your ideas have created and unfortunately we, as American people have allowed it to go on too long.
The information age has now caught up with you! No longer do the American people have a hard time deciphering your cryptic sound bites and snarky comments because information is now freely available. When you stand before the podium in an empty room making us believe your speeches are being listened to by your collegues we can now understand that you're simply blowing hot air to an empty crowd. When you stand in front of a camera and lie to us we can laugh at you knowing your lying through your teeth in your feeble attempt to make us believe you. No, we are not stupid. We are not an ignorant bunch of cattle and we will not be sent over the cliff by you.
It is my belief that this country will come back strong once our next elections are held. We are not stupid! It is my belief that someday history will judge you! It will be shown that you are without a backbone to do what is right! Society will judge you as the ones who are ignorant to the true American spirit! The future will show that your actions or inaction created such a mess that it will take us years to pull out of this. Americans understand where we came from and Americans understand that the road you have placed us on needs to be tore up and rebuilt in a true American fashion! Unless God has us on the path to the end times, it is my belief that in short order the stupidity that you think we all hold will rise up and show you how stupid we really are. So stupid that you will be removed from office and if I'm right, then maybe being a little stupid is smarter than you think!
