If you are familiar with the Constitution you know the Founding Fathers created three, but equal, branches of government: The Legislative, Executive and Judicial.

Over the years it has become tradition for members of the Executive and Legislative branches to often act like two tomcats in a gunny sack, but the Supreme Court has served as a model of decorum. I can never remember reading in history or through my years of life, seeing members of the Supreme Court criticizing either the Legislative or Executive Branches for all their foul-ups. Yet, the other two branches pout and whine when they don't get their way!

The Founding Fathers gave the citizens of our country the ultimate power of what direction our country will take – by casting your vote in all elections held. Not by demonstrating where illegal, defacing/destroying public and private property, threatening anyone, but simply stepping into the privacy of the voting booth and casting your ballot.

Maybe the Executive and Legislative members of our federal government should crawl out of the gunny sack and do the work they were elected to do. Spend more time in the Oval Office and Congressional Chambers fulfilling their Constitutional responsibilities and less time running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

The argument that the horses aren’t indigenous to the park is just ludicrous.
Driven to fury by Fox News and the fascistic madness of former President Donald Trump, many Republicans plan to win future elections by unconstitutional means.
Why would anyone want to do business with such an adversary?
I am among the majority who are concerned about the direction of our country. However, my main concern is not about the economy.
