Forthcoming of Halloween is a sign of our times

Gobblins, bats, spooky and crawly things, how I grew up in America loving this night of celebration. Now my thoughts run deep in a national debt crisis, people out of jobs, bank failures and our image around the world. A bunch of selfish Tea Party Republicans holding our country hostage is not easy to accept. Many say it is their freedom to do this and that this is their way to pollute American politics and make poor to fend for themselves.
I was always taught to help those in need and I find that our current system, although expensive, is the best way to do this. I can't support a serfdom being created by Ted Cruz and his Kroh brothers to put America into turmoil. Ted Cruz and family needs to go back to Cuba. The Kroh brothers should have their assets investigated because I'm sure our country can find something treasonous on what interests they are controlling.
On Halloween, a fun filled night of tricks and treats, I asked my grandchildren on what they were wearing for Halloween. After they were thrilled to tell me about their costumes, they ask me what I was going to dress up as for Halloween. I first informed them, I'll go as Barney or Big Bird. They resounded back with, "that's lame and not creative". So, I said, I guess I can go as a Tea Party Republican. They screeched and said, "Grandpa, somebody will shoot you." I was surprised by that comment. Ok, I said, I'll go as a Westboro Baptist minister. They knew that one and said that was just plain "stupid". So, I told them I can go as Mylie Cyrus or Lady Gaga and if I go as Mylie I can sing her daddy's song "Achy, Breaky, Heart". All my grandchildren (6) said, "what's that?". They did not know the song.
Point I'm making is these kids are paying attention to the politics and the current media stars, but not the not so old songs. Our children are learning from this mess America is in and may not express themselves like adults are currently doing. Be careful, America, these children grow up and if it looks bad to them now, most likely it will be bad to them when they run for Congress. I believe our country will come out of this political mess, because our children may have the answers.
