What's With All The Anger?


These days It seems like everybody is angry about something.
I don't mean just a little perturbed, I mean angry.
This seems to be the general consensus as to why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are both inexplicably doing so well during this election process.
When asked, voters are voting for outsiders because they are mad.
But when asked what it is they are mad about exactly they seem to be hard pressed to pin it down.
All they know is they are mad and they want a change.
They feel like there should be more. More of what no one is really sure but there should be more of it.
Things should be better...but better than what?
If you go back 7 1/2 years, things were terrible! The economy was in free fall, thousands were laid off, the stock market almost collapsed and we were headed for even worse things down the road...
Then newly elected president Obama spent the next 5 years literally pulling the country out of this looming quagmire. And now even though we aren't 100%, we sure as sh*t are in a lot better place than we would have been had he not taken the actions that he did.
Need proof?
The unemployment rate is way down from where it was when Bush left office;
Under this president there has been consistent job growth;
Look , I know things aren't perfect...but when have they ever been perfect?
There is a lot that's not fixed and not fair. But whining about it and voting for reality show hosts isn't going to fix things.
I look around and see that there is much left to do, but I wonder why we seem unable to see the positive accomplishments that have been made and acknowledge that we really dodged a bullet when it comes to our economy.
(If you want to see all of POTUS's accomplishments check out; )
Which brings me back to the beginning of this post. What are we REALLY so angry at and about?
Just a little something to think about...
Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Noodle and Crew, we (and TBT) agree with you elebenty-hundred per scent! Too many of the Beins seem all far over one way or the other and too few in the middle. We kinna admire Mr Barry President.

    TBT tells us that the Romans in the way-far-past fell because there was too much lead in their waterbowls. So WE are thinkin there is some new version of "lead in the water". Or maybe a lack of Feliway-Fer-Beins...

  9. Well it seems like people all over the world are angry for some reason ???
    I don´t like it one bit either !!
