frustrations, part 2

let me clarify my previous post.

it's true that i don't believe those who are using the filibuster to block the nominations are acting entirely on principle. but, i'm not naive enough to believe that if the party roles were switched the same thing wouldn't be happening.

my bigger frustration in all of this is that i believe i live in the best country in the world, but i'm disappointed with those who are supposed to be our public servants. unfortunately the parties in power often don't seem to be FOR anything. they only seem to be AGAINST each other.

when it all becomes about fighting the other guy all the time, all of us end up losing.
