Giving thanks …

Just another rant…

There are so many things to be thankful for -being alive having children alive well and feisty as ever, my family which is huge. We all know people we consider extended family, and most are alive and doing well, though we all know life is not normal yet as colds, flu, covid, and RSV … you fill it in as the time to seal up our homes comes closer and closer. The weather is giving off winter is coming vibes with a sharp drop in the temperature and a possibility of snow for next week while the skies were white and the temperature did drop the rain is causing flooding and the snow is falling in our mountains

The mornings have been very crisp, and the sky appears blue, then the down pour of rain decided to make life miserable.  So, it is good to know that as we slide into Thanksgiving, a whole lot of sports are on their way and maybe drown out some of the nasty Republican comments about the people they are using as political footballs after the red wave fizzled out.

The media is spending a lot of time beating the: “what ifs” meme for any chance a clean deficit/debt deal can be made while Republicans exert their disdain over the end results. As citizens and taxpayers,, the people expect members of Congress to do the work of the people and so far the Republican Party NO since 2008 is still making the choice to act irresponsibly with a whole lot of malice behind every vote, interview, and comment.  When will folks ask themselves every time some so-called representative from the right tries to sell their reasons for tax giveaways. The difference between bad and catastrophic outcomes, given we have never been in a situation like this before, and maybe the era of trump is the problem… right?

So, the choice is easy. The average voter V the oncoming deficit soon to be created by Republicans!! Suffice it to say… I give thanks that enough left leaning Americans voted to keep control of the Senate. I will admit, this voter wonders about the outcome of the House of Representatives.
