It’s late Sunday morning as I commence penning this. I have been thinking about Joe Biden. I have to wonder why any honest man or woman wants the job of being President of the United States. While most men his age are enjoying their weekend in retirement he has more problems on “his desk” than he can possibly solve.
I’m in a snaky mood today therefore I’m planning on writing an article citing several things and making a snarky comment about each. Let’s see how it turns out.
Today I’m going to be non-partisan and that is not a natural position for me. If you asked me what the biggest problem is in American politics I would say it is the undo influence money has – that is totally non-partisan. If you asked many, particularly on the right, they would say the lack of confidence many Americans have in their elected officials. Today I want to propose a relatively simple (nothing is simple in American politics at the highest levels) partial solution to both issues.
Today I’ve chosen to center my article around what I felt was the most outrageous political story of the week just ended. I’ve thrown in a few dishonorable mentions and will leave you with an ironic truth to ponder.
After looking at the today’s title my regular readers probably think I’m building this article around a Harry Truman quote. Today I’m seizing the words of Capital Police Officer Harry Dunn. Last week Tuesday the House Select Committee on 1/6 held its first session. I expected a semi-ho hum session. I was wrong!
