What a huge disappointment this has been. The American people voted for Donald J. Trump, because we were sick and tired of the same old crap going on, year after year. It was exciting to think about someone that actually had the cojones to take on the swamp and finally put Washington D.C. back on the right track. Don’t get me wrong, I think President Trump has done a marvelous job, in spite of being attacked daily by a vicious press and embedded left wing operatives. But, c’mon folks, the man needs some help, he’s pretty much been fighting the battle alone.

For years the Republican Party has portrayed itself as the good guys, the guys in white hats. They have been chewed up and spat out by the Democrats more times than I want to remember. Every Republican President in my lifetime has been relentlessly hammered by the Democrats and left leaning press. I was embarrassed to call myself a Republican after the whipping they gave George W. Bush when he was in office. In fact, I was so embarrassed, I dropped out of the party and became an independent. I’m not  a pacifist, and I don’t want to be associated with people that are.

Enter Donald J. Trump, now I’m excited, when they start bad mouthing him, he gives it right back in double doses. Being a lifelong construction guy, I like his style, and I totally understand when he speaks, because that’s the way my brain works. He’s my man. I don’t give a rip what he does in his private life, I just want him to run the damn government the way it’s supposed to run, and get rid of the slackers.

But alas, we have one big ass problem. We still have a whole damn Congress and Senate full of those tired old Republican dogs that I can’t stand. You know how old dogs are, they’re toothless, lazy, mongrels that have long since passed their time of usefulness. All they do is lay around and sleep, waking just long enough to eat, then go back to sleep. When the Democrat dogs start barking and snarling, they cower in the corner.

Paul Ryan is one of those useless dogs. When you have a vicious dog, the first thing you do is have him neutered. It gets rid of the testosterone and takes the fight out of him. Well I think a lot of politicians, think that to be a good Republican, you have to give up your balls. Obviously Paul Ryan did, and he certainly isn’t alone. We have more than our share of Republican eunuchs.

So, here we are, almost two years into Donald Trump’s first term, with a majority in the Congress and the Senate. You would think that would be golden. You would think, that the conservative lawmakers could have initiated all of the programs the conservative voters have been clamoring for, but alas, the old Republican dogs didn’t have any fight left in them. So, here we are again, the Dems control the House of Representatives, the Republicans control the Senate. Instant deadlock for the next two years, and we still have the remnants of Obamacare around our neck, thanks to Paul Ryan and John McCain.

You can also thank those tired old dogs, for not helping the President sort out the nagging immigration problems. People, I could go on and on, but you get the picture. We have 535 people combined, in the house and senate, and all they can do is bicker, name call, and blame everyone else for their failures. They don’t do diddly squat. Oh, they get a nice big salary, a lot better health care plan than you do, plus a very nice retirement. Way better than social security. So, I want you to think about the totally useless people we keep voting into office, think about how you can make the government work better. Pick people that will work for you instead of themselves. Pick people that will get something done instead of just running their mouths, to make you think they are doing something.

In my opinion, over 90% of the lawmakers currently seated are nothing but actors. No wonder Hollywood loves them so much. They should move the Oscar ceremonies to Washington D.C.  I think you get my point, the Federal Government is full of useless, self serving people that are only interested in getting fat and rich on your dime. Sadly, I don’t think anyone can ever undo what our government has become, a fat, bloated, money sucking monster that keeps yelling “feed me”.  If you think those folks actually work for you, and listen to you like the forefathers intended, I have some bad news for you. You would be dead wrong. They just want your money, sucker, and if you don’t give it to them, they’ll take it, and everything else you own. Like my old man always said, ” its a great life if you don’t weaken”.
