Oh Heaven help the country because it’s that time again. The political debates are on, and with them come the blame game. Were any of these potential candidates ever raised by parents or some sort of guardian with scruples? Did they ever hear, “I don’t care who did it, just do what you’re supposed to do!” The left blames the right, the right blames the left, Democrats blame the Republicans, the Independents are just trying to get a word in edgewise, “and so on and so on and Scooby dooby doo-bee.”
What’s worse is that too many of us “Everyday People” seem to get in on the act with, “There were more jobs under this one, or gas prices are higher now than when so-and-so was in office.” Oh for goodness sake. “There is the blue one who can’t accept the green one for living with the fat one, for trying to be the skinny one.” Holy cow! Are you sure we’re not tucked back in 1968? When did we all forget how to work together, to listen, or to have a true debate without slugging up dregs that have nothing to do with fixing a problem RIGHT NOW! Oh shame on us all.
Right about now I think all those on Capitol Hill could benefit from a little Sly and the Family Stone. “Sometimes I’m right, then I can be wrong.” Whew, honesty, no finger pointing, working to be right and admitting when wrong. Seems our politicians need to take a trip back into time to 1968. (I know some of them are old enough for a flash back.) Sly’s song could teach them some values that don’t go out of style when you keep the best interest of the people at heart. After all, “We got to live together.”
