I wonder how long it will be before everyone wakes up and starts pushing back on the politicians in Washington.

They care more for a war in Ukraine than their own people here in the U.S. I don’t care what side people are on, we have to start pushing back and fight for our welfare. Neither side seems to give two cents about how we feel going without enough money to buy food and fuel.

Some of these guys and gals should be out of politics altogether. Once they reach 65 that should be it; they are out of there. It’s time to let the young bloods in there for a change.

Politicians are always spending our hard-earned money like its candy. I just heard today on the radio they want to spend some more billions on COVID. I say to them, stop it. We have been through over two years of this, and enough is enough.

If that is not enough, they want people to give their children the shots now. Even though the data shows they have been through this all along with not too many problems.

So, I hope we get together and start telling the government to keep out of our affairs. People should remember the nine most dreaded words in the English language, as stated by Ronald Reagan: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
