For a moment today we stopped talking about Casey Anthony. For a moment today we stopped talking about the lousy jobs outlook. For a moment today everyone put all their differences aside and we came together. We all either looked to the skies or looked to our TV sets as the final space shuttle flight successfully lifted off. Democrat stood next to Republican and black stood next to white. Together we shared our pride in our country as we joined in a unison chant of “USA! USA! USA!”
That moment of truly having a “United States of America” lasted as long as the plume of shuttle smoke remained in the atmosphere. Once again the finger-pointing is back in session and the “he said/she said” game of blame is in full swing. Why don’t the suit and ties on Capital Hill understand what we, the common man, truly believes. We don’t care about the blame….we care about the fix.
I live in West Palm Beach where the summer heat and humidity is almost unbearable. If my air-conditioning went out I really don’t care what is wrong I just want someone to fix it. This country has been without air-conditioning for quite some time. Everyone is uncomfortable. The guy that promised he could fix our air conditioning isn’t getting the job done. In less than two years we are going to be asked who we want to take care of our “air-conditioning.” I would hope this nation would be able to react like they did today. Set the differences aside. Come together for a common cause. RESEARCH your candidates. Forget about party affiliation, who is the best speaker, color or who your family votes for. Vote for the BEST repairman…….because it’s really starting to get hot in here.
