A last word on Toon in and see ya later

If you want any change in DC, you have to fire the Senate. This doesn’t mean getting rid of the GOP Senator and replacing IT with a Donkey. Get rid of the Party critters and put in people that are not lawyers, local politicians or TV hucksters. No Pastors, priests or nuns either, they have their own agenda and have the practice of running auto dà fé street shows once in power.

Try farmers, plumbers and electricians for a difference. That’s what the Founding Fathers had in mind anyway.

This is it for me. I’m tearing out the built ins this afternoon; the painters are starting Wednesday. That gives me time to tape up the holes in the walls and get out of the way. I’ll be back after Labor Day.
For now I’m off faster than a prom dress in the motel room.
