I am not quite sure what got into me last night to listen to the presidential debate, but I did, in its entirety.
It reminded me of a couple things. The main thing that came to mind is when you call service xyz (credit card, bank phone service), whatever, and you keep getting sent to a different department, until finally you get a dead end recording or a loop that sends you in circles. When you do talk to someone, they tell you that its not their fault or that another department is in charge of that issue. Isn’t that frustrating?
Well, that’s the feeling I get after listening to the debate last night. The other guy did it, or the other party’s policies are responsible. Funny thing is that I believe them. The other party is responsible, both of them. The whole thing is rotten.
