Washington’s Stupid Games

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 25, 2019

         PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW SAYS HE WILL WAIT UNTIL THE PARTIAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN IS OVER BEFORE DELIVERING A STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS. SOME SAY HE HAS CAVED TO SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI WHO WITHDREW HER INVITATION FOR HIM TO SPEAK.

         SO WHERE ARE WE IN ALL THIS? 800 THOUSAND FEDERAL EMPLOYEES REMAIN OFF WORK, MISSING A SECOND PAYCHECK. SURE, THEY’LL EVENTUALLY BE PAID, BUT MANY HAVE BILLS THAT ARE DUE NOW, INCLUDING MORTGAGE OR RENT PAYMENTS. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS GET PAID, BUT THIS IS ALL ABOUT POLITICS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE “BASES.”

         IT ALL REMINDS ME A POPULAR SONG FROM YEARS AGO: “THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY, EVERY NIGHT AND EVERY DAY; NEVER SAYING WHAT THEY MEAN; NEVER MEANING WHAT THEY SAY. WHILE THEY WHILE AWAY THE HOURS, IN THEIR IVORY TOWERS, ‘TIL THEY’RE COVERED UP WITH FLOWERS, IN THE BACK OF A BLACK LIMOUSINE.”

         THAT FITS THE CURRENT MESS IN WASHINGTON, DON’T YOU THINK? GOD SITS IN HIS HEAVEN AND LAUGHS. THE REST OF US JUST SHAKE OUR HEADS, OR TUNE OUT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
