In the last two days, I've been struck by the most amazing, dumbfounding, confusing, negative headlines in media and actions by groups of people in the Republican Party. Here's the first:
It seems the Republicans in Oklahoma--you know, the "small government" people--don't want the cities of the state to be able to legislate for themselves any higher minimum wage so the rocket scientists in the statehouse there created this legislation. Forget a "living wage", Oklahomans. You're screwed.
Here's the 2nd headline:
Forget working together. Forget being "American first." Forget cooperation. Forget colaboration. Forget compromise.
The only thing important, apparently, to too many Tea Party, Right Wing members and Republicans is to separate themselves from the rest of the country.
How is that smart?
How does that make any sense?
How is that progress?
Most importantly, how is that good for the nation?
What in the Sam Hill has gotten into these people?
I'd like to think, I'd like to give them credit that it's not just racism.
But it surely looks like it.
