I love my country, but sometimes, I feel really really disappointed in it.
Did you know that taxes on airfare ceased being collected, starting on last Friday at midnight, because Congress can’t get their act together and do the things they are supposed to do? (Also, did you know the airlines are the ones benefiting from this, NOT us? Unsurprising, really.)
And this is just one, small, uncontroversial thing that annoys me. Clearly, there are some major issues (on both sides!). I feel like many of the politicians are just playing games. It’s like they don’t even realize the fate of (one of?) the most powerful countries in the world lies in their decisions (or lack thereof).
Maybe we should revive our plans to move to Europe for a year or two. Or forever. Ug.
