Those who were chosen by the people of the United States to govern and carry out the will of the people of our Democratic society are beginning to shows signs of stress and erratic behavior. This is of course about those who govern from Washington, D.C. There is talk such as ” we’re gonna impeach the motherf****r” by an incoming member of Congress. Mr. Trump said the partial shutdown could last for months or years no matter how much pain and suffering that the 800,000 government employees and contract workers are feeling a major financial pain from this inaction by our elected leaders. The President said those workers are ok with their lives being put into chaos to have a border “wall” being built.
There is a part of this story that is not being considered by the media or is being put on the back burner of public scrutiny for the time being. Most of the menial jobs such as building maintenance for all federal government properties and contract workers who will not get paid at all are for the most part people of color who are living from check to check. Most federal workers who fit that description are black. When those at the top start complaining about not being able to make their mortgage payments the government has to create a diversion somewhere else in the world.
The America that is on display today is part of the “new world order” that President Bush spoke of many years ago. Once again the whole world is watching and judging this thing we call a Democratic society. Our way of life is being threatened because of a true lack of leadership at the top. We can and will do better because that is owed to those future generations of Americans as a birthright.
