Letter to the Editor: Exclusivity

I went to a luncheon last week at Hideaway and the staff and service was top shelf, as usual. Thankyou! The guest speaker was a state senator from Florida who spoke of his experiences of the past and present.

One remark that really got my attention was when he mentioned how some people have exclusivity. He stated, “exclusivity is great, if you have it.”

I thought it was a very profound and truthful statement made by a sitting senator. I began to think who or what group is the most exclusive in the world. The royal family? No. The Hollywood elite? No. Kings, Sheiks, Shahs,Mullahs ? No. It’s the U.S Congress and the President and his ilk.

Our elected officials don’t represent the American people in any way, shape or form. The make all the other elitist envious. After a few years of self service they receive a lifetime pension, (even if convicted of felony crimes), a health care package (definitely not Obamacare).

Our Commander in Chief keeps telling us that “we are all in this together” and we need to share the wealth with everyone. Who is we? Not the Obamas and their political hacks. Not Congress with their own personal agendas. Their condescending, arrogant, and callous comments to the people.

“You have to sign it before you can know whats in it. No one in congress reads most of the bills before they vote for them. Its an outrage.

Smarten up America. Our existence depends on it.
