I normally don't blog about politics because, really, my opinion is just that--MY opinion. It's not right, it's not wrong, it might not make sense to you & you're not here to read about it. But it's times like this that really make me mad.
I try to be a good person. I try to be a good mother & role model to my daughter. I try to be a good wife, daughter, sister, daughter in law, friend, blah blah blah. But I'm not perfect. I make mistakes sometimes. Please, take a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor. You're shocked I know. But when I do make a mistake I own up to it & try to make things right.
Hunter & I try to be good citizens. He serves his country & I think it's fair to say, we've sacrificed a good bit for the country we believe in & love. Our family life takes a hit every other year, our marriage is put to the test & our daughter suffers because she is too young to comprehend why Daddy is gone for so long.
We live within our means & don't look for handouts from the government. We try to give to charity when we can & I volunteer when I can at the Wee One's school & w/ our FRG.
And we pay our taxes.
So, how is it that people like Tom Daschle, Charlie Rangel, Tim Geithner, & Nancy Killefer, who I'm sure have "people" to do things like that for them, can't get them done? Believe me, I've been really busy before & forgotten to do something, but paying taxes? Yeah, not one of them.
Shame, shame, shame.
