Same Ol', Same Ol'

Here we are again, another crisis with the debt ceiling looming . . . war on the horizon. . . Iran a potential threat . . . Israel and Palestine quibbling . . . Republicans and Democrats pointing fingers at each other . . .  news media in a hurry to begin Presidential election insanity.  There's not enough going on that they need that back?  Just a regular year, month, week, in paradise.  There's even another shooting to make the craziness complete.

And here we, the people, are sitting in the same ol' situation -- stressed further by the one per cent getting 95 per cent of the monetary plenty.  Uncertain how the new medical insurance will affect budgets and families, couples face 2014 with trepidation.  And the Tea Partiers are extorting the President as well as the members of Congress who passed Obamacare.  Isn't this against the law?  Oh, only when regular people do it.  The Congress is exempt from normal laws.

Then, of course, there is the other part of the war between Tea Partiers and the rest of the country.  They continue to think roads and bridges repair themselves for free.  I guess they also believe kids learn to read by themselves.  Well, possibly their kids do, for as we all know, their ilk are superheroes.

Please hear this plea, oh Lord.  Please see there are no games about the debt ceiling.  Please let the bulimic rich share with their employees now instead of waiting to regurgitate it back in philanthropies later when 95 per cent of the country needs charity.  Whatever you do, don't excuse them their sins of greed just because they had to find somebody to give it to since they couldn't take it with them.  We probably shouldn't even mention the ego trip they are on because they have something to share with the people they exploited.

Help us to solve our issues with Syria without going to war.  Please bring Israel and Palestine to the table for genuine talks and real resolve.  Help Iran to feel more a part of the world community without adding to the nuclear problem.

Get all political parties in the mood to negotiate and help them use reason and intelligence.  Stop their constant bickering if you will. 

And best of all, help us get better mental health treatment for all Americans.  Perhaps trained psychologists should hold group therapy with all children from Kindergarten on through graduation.  Certainly, all people likely to have PTSD should be automatically sent to therapy.

The bickering might be slowed in future congresses if there were age requirements.  I read the other day that although women achieve adulthood in their early thirties, men don't mature until around 43.  So, how about age requirements of around 45-65?  This should include term limits, as well.

Whatever you can do will be appreciated.  I'm sure even the people directly involved would like your help with this.

These things I ask in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
