The Mess in D.C.


Hey, Republicans: A great old president once said, “Walk softly, and carry a big stick!”

If Teddy Roosevelt were alive today, he’d use that Big Stick to beat some sense into the GOP!

Republicans, you must be wearing blinders and ear muffs not to be seeing and hearing the public outcry — from Democrats and Republicans alike.

How can you live with yourselves, realizing that you caused this current mess you have put this country in?

And to have a charity cover military family funeral costs?

Shame! Shame!! Shame!!! on you.

If it were up to me, you’d all be fired — no benefits or perks — and let you see what it’s really like out here in the real world and how the “average citizen” has to live.

Shame on you all!
