Julie hosting Fun Monday,from her blog 'Another chance ranch' sets topical questions
"I want to know what you think about the state of our country. Or, is there a particular issue being voted on that you feel strongly about? What are your thoughts? Keep in mind, I don't want to know whether you are a Democrat or a Republican. I am just curious as to what is going through your mind."
Being 'across the pond' I admit to finding politics confusing, especially US. So here's my take...
Two satirists Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert hosted a rally 'to restore sanity'.
Targeting over-heated debate and media ‘laziness’...a non-partisan call to purge America's politics of the extremist rhetoric that is dividing the country" [ibid]
Placards from their rally included...
I Want YOU – to switch to decaf
You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own spelling
Even God gave it a rest for one day – tone it down America
1 nation – worrying together!
I added the images, taken from an Open Source site. Probably, all I've done is add to the confusion!
Next, our news has reports about the 'Tea Party' (cue the Mad Hatter?)
Apparently, Tea Party stands for "Taxed Enough Already"
I think I'll stick to 'Alice in Wonderland'!
