My Husband Would Freak!

If you are into commercials, like I am, then you may have seen the one where there are a bunch of people standing around a trash can, looking at the piece of paper on the ground. Each is complaining about how horrible it is that someone would drop a piece of trash on the ground. The black lady says, “my husband would freak if he saw this.” Then, a person walking by, simply picks up the paper, throws it into the trash and keeps on going. They have a similar commercial with ladies standing around running water in the bathroom. Basically they are promoting ACTION.

Do you ever watch television, the news to be specific, and wonder, what the heck is going on in the world? Do you sometimes feel like you are living in an alternate universe? At times the problems seem insurmountable. What can I do, little me?

Open a dialog with your elected officials. Send an email, as opposed to fussing at the TV. They can not hear you. (I am sure that Rep Andrews and Sen. Lautenberg enjoy my emails. I try to wait one day to re-read my emails before sending, so that I can do my research, we are in New Jersey after all. But on the Ports thing, I had to send the fury as it came.)

They say that congress has about a 32% approval rating. They also said that Congress has a 99% re-election rate. Sounds kind of strange doesn’t it.

Congress is on break now and they say that this is the best time to communicate, as they are home and have the time to read emails and talk with constituents. Take advantage of the time to let them know how you really feel.

As wise person once said: If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.
