The Pusillanimous Politicians

Harry M. Covert

With all disrespect to the so-called law makers, the recent debacle can be described as anti-American and the witlings, the wisenheimers if you will, have set the worst examples of leadership in recent years.


It’s truly bothersome that those elected to uphold the Constitution of the democratic republic have failed the citizens miserably. Closing the government, even for three days, is un-American, unpardonable and unacceptable.


The only recourse to save the nation is impeach all of them. Naturally they can only be expelled from the Senate and House of Representatives. Where has the honor gone? Voting days will come again.


Partisanship is one thing, but destruction of the principles of good government is beyond goodness and integrity or rectitude.


The idea of holding the government hostage is unconscionable. The good old girls and boys attempting to be first among equals is shameful at the very least.


Millions of Americans in every state and territory are suffering in some manner. Military women and men are expected to protect the civilians at the risk of their lives. Yet the peckerwoods, pecksniffians and pusillanimous politicians are more interested in illegal immigrants. Do they ever visit the wounded warriors?


So, what if a young soldier is killed or maimed? That’s the example solons want to make the issue. I’ve been thrilled and honored to help numerous foreign-born individuals come to the United States and live legal and productive lives.


The matters making the news so adamantly of late are merely shifting winds to undermine the goodness of traditional Americans. There is nothing funny about tearing down the fundamental foundations.


Shall I dare recall the quote “America is great because America is good?” History has proved that with many selfless ideals.


Those elected in the majority and minority have missed the opportunity again to be true to their callings. How much longer must the people endure the hate being espoused in so many quarters? How long will the fabricated and false problems be purported as truth?


It is disgraceful that fear-and-hate mongering have reached epidemic proportions. No good will come from all the evil being spread. Saner heads must prevail sooner rather than later.


The thought of cutting off funds for soldiers and public safety personnel in far flung fields is unconscionable. Threats from around the world are ever increasing. Not for a blink of the eye are people safe.


The babblers in Washington, with all their advisers and money raisers, must get back to honesty and veracity and remember why they were sent to the nation’s capital.


Presently, their reputations are in the tank. Who do we trust? A mighty good question.
