Yes, dagnabbit is indeed a cutesy replacement for the profanity I wanted to use here. I’m trying not to curse. I’m thankful that at least the robocalls have ended. I almost don’t care who’s in and who’s out. I have just one request: open your eyes and your minds and find some common ground. Work together for once. Imitate America and make the “melting pot” of ideas blend. Look beyond your own re-election. Consider ideas that come from the other side of the room, city and country. We the people—scratch that—I, the person, can’t take it anymore. I am sick of the left wing/right wing yammering. It’s like a tug-of-war with citizens being trampled at the midpoint. And that is where most of us stand—somewhere near the middle.
I used to listen to many political programs, but I’ve migrated to the sunnier vibes of the Food Network and HGTV. I don’t want to hear the vitriol from the obligatory pol on the left and pundit on the right. And until you come to terms with each other, and the great tasks at hand, I’m tuning you out. If and when you return to common courtesy, sanity and thoughtful cooperation, I may tune you back in.
Or I may just go live in a cave…..
