I saw this headline of a fight that broke out in the Ukraine Parliament; it got me thinking “When was the last time my representative fought for me?
FIGHT BREAKS OUT IN PARLIAMENT WHEN UKRAINE LEARNS IT HAS QUIETLY BECOME THE NEWEST US STATE
When was the last time our representatives got into a brawl in the House or Senate? With all the silly crap that goes on, issues to discuss and debates, you’d think from time to time a punch or two would be thrown from the heat. Maybe our reps just don’t have enough compassion or loyalty to their constituents to fight for us.
Oh they blame each other for everything, point fingers and maybe occasionally get into some grade school name calling. You would think that once in a while someone would get tired of some of the ridiculous comments and insults made by congressman when they have the floor, somebody would actually fight for what they believe. If some of these House and Senate members know that We the People are getting screwed everyday, and debate has no chance, why isn’t anyone sticking up for us. I am not advocating fist fights everyday in Congress, nothing would get done, they’d have to hire more custodians, they won’t cleanup their own messes.
I was just wondering, we never or seldom hear of a fight in our halls of Congress. Human emotion, seems unlikely to go and never have any bouts. Are our representatives more pretentious and in bed together even more than we know? They get along more than they appear to show; they seem to be a very happy club.
If we had a government body that actually made accomplishments, solved problems and showed leadership……..had constructive debates, then no don’t fight; stay the course.
I guess what I am trying to say “Isn’t there someone in Congress as frustrated and angry over the direction of our country as I am…..that I want to punch some of these reps in the mouth?”
