“Your Mother is a Whore!”

The healthiest, most functional families have two parents fully engaged in the lives and well-being of each individual and the family as a whole.  One parent keeps track of the home, how well it kept clean, and the health and well-being of the family members:  feeding them, keeping them is suitable clothing, making sure they are doing well in life, work, and school.  The other parent keeps track of the finances, brings money into the family, plans for the future, and keeps watch that the family and the home itself is safe and protected.

What would happen if the father told the kids, “Your mother is a whore; she sleeps around and gives your food to strangers. I’m not giving her any more money for groceries.  She’s crazy.  You are not safe with her.”

What if the mother said behind their father’s back, “Your father is only in it for himself.  You watch; as soon as he saves up enough, he’s going to leave us.  He doesn’t love you; he despises children, and says you’re a drain…a weight around his neck.  He’s probably got some woman on the side because he doesn’t love me, either.”

America has a two parent government.  I’m not talking about our democratic system with it’s checks and balances of power.  I’m talking about within the legislative branch of our government, there are 2 parental forces: the one force that keeps track of the health and well-being of the American people and the American lands, and the other force that keeps track of the safety and protection, the economy, and the growth of the American people and the American lands.

Both governing parents…both forces are necessary.  For one parent to tear down the other is damaging to the dependents, a waste of time and energy, a distraction from the real challenges the family faces from outside the home.  Tearing down each other Makes No Sense.

I am grateful to both the Republicans and the Democrats because I depend on the Republicans to keep a watch on my safety, and the economy and growth of America.  And I depend on the Democrats to keep watch on how well American children are being taught and prepared for when they will be in control.  I depend on the Democrats to keep an eye on the health of Americans and the health of American lands.  The Republicans have their fingers on the pulse of businesses; the Democrats keep a tending eye on the disadvantaged and the weak.  Both are necessary.  All of it matters.

There is no reason…and no room…for the two parents of any family to discredit or to deny the importance of each other….that’s stupid.  And any single parent will tell you:  no one person can do it well, alone.  The whole family suffers if one of the parents leaves, dies, is excluded or is thrown out.  The scope of life is too big; the responsibilities must be shared.

So, stop tearing each other down, come to the table, and talk; there’s work to be done.
