Adults Only, Please – New York Times


Thomas Friedman in today’s New York Times has written an Op Ed piece entitled Adults Only, Please in which he takes on the political elites who refuse to cooperate with each other in governing our country. 

Our economy is sick we are spending mountains of money that we do not have on “defense” issues that are not vital and generally the elites are turning a blind eye to their sworn responsibility to govern, regardless of party affiliation.

I think he has the right idea.  If we stopped treating these people like our favorite party’s favorite sons and daughters and started treating them as the nobles they really are and demanding our due as the serfs we really are, we might get something done.

Even nobles need to pay attention to serfs who refuse to work the manor lands.  We could get their attention, but only if we treat them as the privilegeded group that they are and demand that the nobles pay attention to our needs.  That is, if they want to head-off a serf’s revolt.

Next we have an Op Ed piece by Maureen Dowd who tires of both the Democratic messiah Barrak Obama and the newfound Republican messiah, Scott Brown.  She finds them both phony, inexperienced for Washington politics and completely out of touch with the needs of Americans like you and me.  Good for you Maureen…as they say…out of the mouths of Babes!

Her Op Ed is entitled Bringing Sexy Back .

And in an Editorial to the late, great Republican Senator Charles Mathias, we can read of the kind of Republican politician that this country needs again.  This man was a real Republican.  There is no doubt.  And he was a real American hero whose stature we now understand was much greater than we realized at the time he served.

The article is an appreciation piece on his passing of two days ago.  It is entitled A Responsible Man and it is a must read.  Where did these type of solid American politicians go?  How do we get them back?
