Americans Held Hostage Year 10

If you regularly read this blog, you know I’m not a fan of Donald Trump.  While we have never have seen a man as divisive as President Trump.  It impossible to blame the political climate on Trump. 

There where serious problems within the individual parties  before he was elected. After becoming President, the GREAT DIVIDE between the two parties has grown wider. Child like, finger pointing in the order of the day.  “But what about what they did ”  .

Let’s be clear, its Party Before Country!!!!

Prestige Position and Power! men and women shaking the hands of the right people in the parties. Voting as told, a lifetime of patience waiting to be assigned to an influential and powerful committee.  A few years ago, the Tea Party opposed the system and nearly divided the Republican party as members of the Tea Party weren’t life long politicians and demanded a place at the table. 

 As Americans are entering  the tenth year as hostages of their government.  There isn’t any indication of a meeting of the minds between the two parties.   As the infighting between the two parties continues, important legislation remains unsigned  Bipartisanship is simply a word or Idea.  Americans are still waiting.

The Current State of the Union

“Given a choice, I would prefer you to marry out of  your race and religion than to marry a Democrat”

“I Don’t Care how nice his mother is ! You are not allowed to play with ANY Republicans “

_________________________________________________________

Grace 

1. simple elegance or refinement of movement “she moved through the water with effortless grace”.

2. To honor or credit to (someone or something )by one’s presence.  “he bowed out from the sport he has graced for two decades”

A few Democrats boycotted the President’s State of the Union Address.  A mistake in my view..   We may not  like or respect the views of the man in office, however as politicians they need to respect the office.   

We teach our children to be respectful, to be a good sport ,to stick it out and not retreat because we don’t like their opinion or their personality.

Someone has to rise above, the Crazy.  Someone who st remembered the basic lessons from his parents.   Perhaps we would be better served by those who still remember.  Perhaps someone with less gray hair.

It cant be any worse than it is today

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
