Talk about bitter

I came across an excellent op-ed piece by Chuck Green of The Pueblo Chieftan about how bitter most of us at both the Republican and Democratic politicians running this country.

Green is really bitter, but he has every right to be:
I'm bitter about the broken promises of the Bush administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress. I'm bitter about the amount of federal taxes I had to pay last week. I'm bitter about the uncontrolled flood of illegal immigrants coming into our country. I'm bitter about U.S. tax policy that rewards large American companies for shipping jobs overseas and punishing those that stay here to compete under disadvantageous conditions.

I'm bitter about the cost of foreign oil and the refusal of America to produce its own supply. I'm bitter about the scam of human-caused global warming. I'm bitter about the measly benefits given our combat veterans. I'm bitter about the condition of Social Security and the high cost of medical care and governmental waste.

And I don't live in a small town in Pennsylvania, carrying a gun to church.
Well, Chuck, I do live in a small town in Pennsylvania and I couldn't have said it better myself.
