What's the World Coming To?

Found this on a clipart site and decided this really should be something posted every five or ten miles along the road. People have forgotten to Play Nice! I listened to our President and others make speeches at the United Nations GA meeting, and thought, "words are cheap." It's actions that count.

Isn't it time that we all stopped pointing fingers and claiming sides? I thought that went away after grammar school, but it seems to be a favorite pastime in politics. Why do we need two parties? The alliance to one side or another has blinded people about what is right or wrong for the US. The divisive nature of this country is going to be what kills us all. Remember someone once said, United we stand, divided we fall?" Don't you think other nations with a pulsing need for "weapons of mass destruction," see us weakening before their very eyes. Every time our President apologizes for us, we move a notch down the respect chain.

I'm sick of hearing "George Bush made this mess for Obama to inherit." Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. Mr. Obama walked into this mess with his eyes wide open and an agenda that clearly doesn't serve everyone's needs. I laugh every time I see his health commercial that tells me I can keep my insurance. Oh really...right up until you institute a cheaper policy and my former employer dumps Blue Cross/Blue Shield and puts me in your long lines. I guess what you mean is that I can keep my provider card and hold onto the memories. :) I wouldn't be so negative about your intentions, but before you try to assume my health care needs how about fixing Medicare, Medical and the VA. All institutions run by the government are teetering on failure, so I continue to ask myself why we want to perpetuate the problems.

Isn't it time to ax the Republican/Democrat parties and come together as Americans, united for all? Each side is so busy pointing fingers, they don't have time to read the bills they propose or sign. I've never been anchored to a party for these very reasons. I vote the person, not the party. The democrats have made an ass out of themselves and the Republican elephant has become a load no one can carry. How bout we just all play nice? Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

You're very right about this. There's more at stake, too, than what's on the surface. Playing nice isn't on the agenda, and I think the American people are figuring it out, too.

WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
