Yes Lord The Games People Play!

Congress people in Washington and politicians in general ,just  got  to be the lowest of the species we call human beings.
For the past week all I have seen and heard in the news is the back and forth between the Democrats and the Republicans leadership(aside from the daily slaughter going on in the streets of my neighborhood), about how not to let the Federal Government cease operating.
Well truth be told these folks had no intention of letting that happen,it was a game of who was going to say 'uncle" first.
This battle between the two dominant political parties in Washington wasn't about cutting the budget deficit,but about how to cut programs that help poor folk in general and women in particular.
If these Congress people truly wanted to cut the deficit in the Federal budget,all they had to do was go straight to the Military spending budget  pull out the switch blade and get to cutting.
It wasn't about lowering my taxes so I can afford name brand corn flakes,instead of Wal-Marts house brand,no it was about cutting off Pell Grants,so Skippy and Ray-Ray couldn't attend College and have a life instead of standing on the corner smoking a blunt.
This showdown on Capitol Hill folks was also about preventing poor women from having family planning resources and information,i.e. banning abortions.
The most important reason this showdown occurred is because of the political action and influence of the movement known as the "Tea Party".
Poor and working class people have better start to open their eyes and ears to these people,because the train they are driving doesn't stop in our neighborhoods!
