John Boehner: EPIC FAIL
Whether or not John Boehner and his Crazy House Republicans fund a clean bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), he has now shown he is not fit to lead anyone or anything.
When reporters asked him about putting up a vote to fund a clean DHS bill, he mocked the press by blowing kisses. This is not acceptable.
I think we are too cynical and not proactive enough as Americans. When our elected representatives do things like this and the families of Kayla Mueller, Steven Sotlove, James Foley and the others have to sit there in total grief wondering why even bother when their government has totally failed them, I feel a sense of rage.
These people make a ton of money and work very few days in Washington.
We see young congressmen like Aaron Schock abusing his office by taking lavish trips and getting massages on the people's dime WITH interns while truly patriotic young citizens are dying at the hands of ISIS.
We see irresponible public officials on the right, stick Immigration ammendments to DHS Funding bills. This is offensive to me and many Americans.
Are we going to just sit back and let these over-bloated assholes get away with this crap anymore?
Are we not going to call Justice Anthony Kennedy out for his wrong-minded vote on Citizen's United five years ago? His deciding vote allowed for this current crazy state of American Politics.
EVERY Branch (Including The Executive) has failed this country in so many ways.
President Obama is now FREE to call these corrupted politicians out by name. He has no more elections to win.
He has acted more like I thought he would since
the GOP took control of the legislative branch, but he must now start calling Boehner out for stuff like this.
It is disrespectful to the memories of ALL veterans living and dead and the recent deaths of the young people killed by ISIS.
I emplore all people reading this piece, to at least think about what you can do to make a difference. Even if it means just having this conversation at the dinner table.
