Writer feeling mean toward politicians

— It’s that time of year again partly due to Veterans Day and now the election that is strictly about money. I get moody, sad and a little bit mean. I want to set on my back stoop, get a jug and cry for the whole human race. When the 1st Marine Div. went ashore at Guadalcanal the average pay was $21 a month. Now we have a presidential candidate with offshore accounts that he refuses to pay taxes on.

I am military. When I die they will throw dirt in the face of an 18-year-old jarhead/GI. I refuse to get any older. I am ultra conservative. I will never vote GOP.

Good ol’ Doc Coburn is right, in his new book. The GOP has done nothing for four years. Their sole motive has been to make Obama a one-term president.

The beltway politicians have made an average of $1,000,000 in this time. They work an average of 90 days a year. They only work three days a week! Anybody want to talk about treason? No civilian company or government agency would allow this.

The original members of the Boston Tea Party faced a hangman’s noose. In those days the Brits were an unforgiving bunch. The modern tea bag politicians refuse to talk a pay cut for themselves, but old people and children are out of luck. Absolutely anyone can buy their vote, even the enemy. At one time, I wanted to hang GOP pols. Now I prefer a garrote. A little bit mean.
