Something Positive

It is wonderful to see, on television, sports events, entertainment, news programs and in the public eye in general the wonderful diversity of gender, ethnic names, races, ages, and orientation compared to just a few short years ago.

We have a long way to go, but as an eighty-two year old person, I certainly can remember times when none but white men (often old, white men) ruled the roost, and we didn't have the pleasure of enjoying the intelligence, articulation, wit, confidence and positive attitudes of these folks.

Keep it up, U.S.A. and only get the percentages more balanced in all these areas.

Don't Confuse me - I'm Trying to Think!

Why do you think the repubs can't discuss, much less vote on more than one thing at a time? They stay hung up on something forever (ACA, Deficit, Veterans' Benefits, Balanced Budget, etc., etc., etc.) and can't think about considering anything else at the same time!

With all the things the government needs to help with, the repubs are at a loss if they try to think about something besides The Topic of the Day!
