What Have You Done For Me Lately?

You know, I was thinking about the upcoming elections that are going on. And something dawned on me.
I mean I'm always getting dumb ideas, so that's nothing new, but occasionally, some of the noise that comes out of my skull is legitimate. And I think this idea was pretty useful.
What have any of the politicians who represent me done for me lately? I can't think of one concrete example of anything that a single one of them has done that has had any significant positive impact on my life in the last 4 years.
I mean if someone gave me a test and one of the questions was a fill in the blank type, I'd be stuck.
Politician A has done ____for me since being elected to office.
Now granted, there has been a lot of amusement given forth by some of them (Jim McGreevy, for example) and, as I live in the Great State of New Jersey, I have had more than my share of unwanted sexual activity (as in I got screwed a whole lot). My President got us into a couple of wars, a Congressman had some untoward sexual activity of his own, and well, things just generally sucked, politics wise. But I have seen nothing I can say was done for the common good in NJ, or in the Nation as a whole. Or even the Nation as a hole!
Anyone care to refresh my memory? Thanks!!!


  1. All that I can that they've sure helped me to know what it is that I DON'T want in a Politician. Problem is we can't always tell what kind of crap they're going to dish out until it's too late.

  2. LOL nope because they've done nothing for me lately. Hmm now I'm hearing the old Janet song what have you done for me lately, gee thanks Jimmy, lol. ----B

  3. LOL on the Jim McGreevy comment. I was in NJ for 3 years getting my MFA before moving to NY - and I gotta say that his "coming out" was a moment of hysterical pride. "Finally. New Jersey is known for something other than the turnpike." LOL
