Spring Cleaning?

He who knows all the answers has not been asked all the questions. - Confucius


This sort of goes along with last week's quote by Robert Frost. Considering all the nothingness that is being spontaneously spouted about over the air waves, it seems that there are more questions being asked than answers being spewn forth from those from whom we would like truthful and straightforward dialog.

Such is any election year when the telephone rings non-stop and your mailbox is filled with dead trees upon which the candidate of the day is touting his pristine record while slinging his (or her) opponent a mud pie to the face.

Outright lies and half truths are the pitfall of modern politics, but no doubt this has been the case, on some level, since the beginning of government. I think it is time for a little Spring cleaning.

Let's start with some Windex® so we can see through the hazy rhetoric, some bleach to clean up around their back doors, and a hand truck to move them to the curb. Who's with me? Rubber gloves and dust masks provided. Beer and pizza when we're done.

  1. I am so with you on this, Linda. Let's clean house!!! I am really tired of all the dust-ups, the dirty politics, and the slimy antics of both sides. I say let's make a clean sweep of it and clean up the mess.

    1. We are on the same page and if only it were that simple. Unfortunately it will take something a lot more powerful than disinfectant to fix what's broken. It's called common sense.

  2. Get some lice killer while you're at it because this election has been a real head-scratcher.

    1. Hey Hilary, you're not just kidding. I had eagerly anticipated the election until I saw what fell out of the political trees.
