Back In The Good Old Days Of Politics
I remember when politics was a lot tamer in Washington, D.C., than they are today and the opposing parties could snarl and snap and curse at each other but, at the end of the day, they could grind out legislations that benefitted everybody ….. even though both sides did not always get everything they wanted.
It was rough and tumble politics and it could get firey and vitriolic at times but at least the end result was more benefit to The American People than any of the garbage can filler that somes out of The Hill these days.
If people did not necessarily like whoever was elected as President, they would, at least, accept the fact that he was president for 4 years and they would hunker down and make the best of things, hoping that their side would win in the next election.
That was America at Her best.
I doubt if we will ever see those days again but in another vein of thinking, I believe that if we have some major national calamity (like the one that happened on September 11, 2001) and like the one that could happen because of the coronavirus, the assholes might get their shit together and come together again …. Time will tell.
