Remembering September 11, 2001 – Lest we forget the tragedy of our past. That day in September no one saw coming. People in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington DC were going about their daily lives when terror struck them. The greatest way to remember these folks is to go to work each day to make our country great for everyone. God bless those who we remember today.


Talking DC Politics


There is gridlock in Washington DC right now. No doubt there are functional problems in the relationships with our leaders. The Senate seems to be the adults in the room right now. How can we let one faction of one party in one part of government shut things down like this. Many of their supporters do so against their best interest.

Friends, America is about to be in a very bad position and there is enough blame to be passed around. In full disclosure I am a Democrat and I think there needs to be more flexibility on my side of the issues but not at the expense of the middle class or the poor. 

Getting a deal done has become very hard and I am not sure when the House and Senate can come together on the issues of the shutdown. They have a few hours now before default. 

I feel that the GOP will be hurt for years because of this and all because of a radical faction put them in this spot. We will have to see how the coming days impacts our country. Our reputation and credit depend on it. 

And another thing…The Debt Ceiling Default Thing


I am scared of this debt ceiling default thing. Certainly its something that can keep anyone awake. Seriously what happened to compromise and goodwill also where did all the moderates go in the GOP. Seems like these days you can’t be too right of centre there. It’s going to be an interesting few days. Don’t buy a car or a house until this thing gets sorted out.
