The beginning of the end

Today, the dismantling officially begins,

Congress is back in session, in case you noticed


they were gone, they only meet to destroy,

not to help we the people, it's only their job.


The first thing on the agenda? De-masting ethics reform,

because that only applies to those of us who have any.


The next target is gutting Obamacare, the imperfect attempt

to help the poor. The president said all along they should help 


to improve it, but this was truly a do-nothing Congress,

they did worse than nothing, they actively did everything


to try to destroy it, after all, it's not for them, it's for the poor,

and they're just lazy and looking for a hand out, not a hand-up.


And they have targeted many more necessary and helpful programs.

So it's the first day of the end of common sense.

I am appalled with recent news. This administration has ruined the political system and dismantled programs used to help the most vulnerable in society. It’s disgusting how evil has invaded the whitehouse, how immigrants are ripped from their families how old white men are let off with no reprimand despite their serious assaults that have ruined lives. Believe me, I am not alone in saying this, the patriarchy will end! Juat hope it’s not with a blood bath.

Couldn't agree more, Joy, thank you!

I’m not sure what to say. Do not totally agree. Obama built the cages for the immigrants and started separating the families. But obviously that’s somebody else’s, not your article. Obamacare could definitely be improved. I do not believe in abolishing it. Anyhow, I always say, right what you feel. I do not believe in arguing about these things. Everyone has their own opinion and feelings. It is great that you put it out there for people to read.
