Turn Off The TV And Paint
I love my little TV room and I receive a great deal of pleasure watching news, sports and films relaxing in what may be referred to as my "man cave". But, someone would be doing me a big favor if I could no longer watch the cable news shows. Listening to some of these politicians in the morning is becoming too much for me to take. This morning I watched Congressman Mike Pence (R) Indiana talk on Morning Joe. He wants to maintain the Bush tax cuts, but he says we can't afford anymore unemployment compensation, but then he goes on to say that his heart goes out to those families that are unemployed. Then Pence goes on to say that they are unemployed because of the Obama's administration handling of the economy. The Obama administration handling of the economy? What about the financial meltdown, financial bailout for the banks, rising unemployment and the recession that occurred during the Bush administration? This country experiences one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression of the 1930s and the present administration is blamed? Well, I guess that's politics. Blame the other party is the way things are done, but at the very least, shouldn't your arguments hold water, make sense? I guess if things made sense I would turn off the TV and paint.
