Personally, I am sick and tired of watching these so-called intelligent and elected officials hold the American public hostage to their kindergarten like antics. If the current crop of politicians in D.C. and elsewhere are indicative of "the best this country has to offer" then we as a nation are doomed. ALL of them with very few exceptions act, and behave like five year olds each competing to become king/queen of the hill in a sand box. My directive to all of them is GROW UP..and get in touch with reality. The same can be said for the millions of individuals who believe their lives revolve aroudn how much they can get for nothing and how much they can get away with while dumping the responsiblity for life onto others.
