16. I've been upbeat as the chance has loomed again.
I remain so at this moment. IF I've done any "grousing" at some point prior, it's because we WASTED THE LAST FEW YEARS because the chance to change was deliberately NOT utilized. What did that intelligent decision buy us? It's like our POTUS all of a suddeen talking tough. Hooray and halleluja! But what about a "track record"? Color me cautiously optomistic.
My name isn't Mr. Smith, but by golly, I could go to Washington and make some decisive common sense decisions with some consideration of the facts involved. That'll never come to pass 'cause what makes Reid's approach tough is all the convoluted considerations of million-dollar backers that might be offended. And when millions of dollars are at stake, common sense can be squeezed to within a hairs breath of it's very existence!
So - to sum things up..... can I leave it to the pros to do the proper thing or the Right thing? I did last time, and that's what worries me now.
