When Eric Cantor lost his re-election bid, it was a defeat of a reasonable but able to disagree lawmaker. His loss  put more stress on an already distressed and malfunctioning Congress. We have observed and heard from and about many fringe voting blocs whose interests do not coincide with the majority of Americans yet they have an undue influence on our electorate. We unfortunately, the everyday voter complain about our Congress and all other elected officials but we tend to turn a selective deaf ear to the events that affect us for years down the road. We have largely ignored the role of a Congress that has done little to fix our fiscal and other problems while castigating every President since Eisenhower. We need to ignore the media coverage as much of it is hype, erroneous and particularly biased. Where we need to put our focus is on the lack of real information coming from the Congress. Recently the speaker was overjoyed over a supreme court decision on the President’s appointment during a bogus recess which was applied to keep the President from making appointments. The problem is that this court case which cost taxpayer dollars is just another wasted effort by our Congress as this court decision which was so loudly touted has no effect on the issue that was brought before the court. Now that the Dupublicans  have control of the Congress , we will continue to see poor legislation and mismanagement.  If we continue to let these 535 want to be kings and queens run this country any way the see fit in our names, we will continue to go downhill at the pace of a landslide. The whole idea of  modern Congress is merely one of control over special and pet projects that only slightly are for the public good. Now that Mr. Oconnel   ll become the Senate majority leader we will see the Congress become more of a “no: Congress and us all down the proverbial rabbit hole. This is  food for thought. It should be apparent to us all that this Congress is comprised shortsighted , antebellum members who cannot reconcile the idea of a non white (and possibly non Southern) person sitting in the oval office. These folks are as big liars as the Iranians, the Saudis and several other middle eastern countries as well as the Russians. Ladies and gentlemen we are still at war and it is local. There is a quote from the cartoon strip “POGO”- “we have met the enemy and it is us”
