Today – you just got the 411?

This is our local US Senator Tom Carper. He arrived with his wife to garner votes for the 2018 election. Two hours! He spent 1 hour 45 minutes listening. We complained of – gun control, immigration, abortion, women’s rights…  Masterfully done. In the final few minutes he said it was bad in America. It has been before. It would get better. Not a word of policy or opinion. Nothing controversial. We don’t know a thing about his stance on any policy issue. Yup. The job of politicians is to get re-elected. How odd? But if you have a job, don’t you want to keep it? The truth would get you tossed out. And, the New York Times editorial today is just now reporting this as news? You guys are late to the party. Most of us knew this long ago.
