Aren't You Tired?

Aren't you tired of hearing about the Kardashians, the millionaires, Trump, Ryan Secrest, John Boehner, Romney, Gingrich, and all that other baloney?  It is the same running list of names every single night on the news.  We don't care!

As far as I'm concerned, and I'm a sixty year old married woman, I am sick of the self-centered, pro-Wall Street, pro-war, pro-white man Republican Party.  It is as if they haven't opened their eyes and noticed that our society has people of many different ethnic backgrounds, religions, and family situations.  We are no longer living in the Ozzie and Harriet Nelson neighborhood (some of us never did), but Republicans seem to think that they alone should impose their beliefs on every person.  We need to spend less time and energy on them and turn our attention to people that need our help.

A new report from the National Center on Family Homelessness states that there are more than 1.6 million homeless children in our country.  In a state by state Report Card, we can discover the incredibly sad statistics on homelessness.  We need to move forward with job creation, fixing our infrastructure, employing our veterans, getting people back to work, and educating our children.  With the country ending one war and winding down another, we've got to concentrate on helping the middle class working families instead of the Kardashians.
