The Subject I Said I Would Not Talk About!

Yes, I'm doing it again but it's not too bad, or is it.   Politics.  There I wrote that nasty word. 

(Now, no nasty comments please.  This is my opinion and only my opinion and just what I think as I have that right, okay!)

Here in Tulsa there is a ton of uproar going on with our city government right now.  The mayor and the city council are at each other's throats and frankly I've had just about enough from ALL of them.  It's kind of like he said, she said, they said, you said but we, the public, really don't know who said what.  I have to say that, in my opinion, some of the councilors have been on the city council way too many years and need to bow out.  I think they are just a little too comfortable in their position and take advantage with the notoriety that it all brings, good or bad.  Politics.  I think that if you "go into politics" that it shouldn't be a career.  I think that can bring all kinds of problems with a persons ego and a skewed view of power.  I kind of, kind of think that politicians should not get paid, that it is a volunteer job.  I know that is not realistic but it would be nice.  A politician should be there for the people they represent, not what they want out of things and I think the longer they are in office, that is where it can kind of get a warped outcome. 

I'm sure this doesn't make a lot of sense but I just had to get out of my mind this garbage so I can stop thinking about it.

I'm in agreement with you. People need to communicate their frustration with the situation to the mayor and the councilors. We also need to get to the polls and vote when there is an election! Folks can't complain if they don't participate and, unfortunately, lots of Tulsans don't vote in council elections.
