To occupy oneself with unimportant matters and neglect priorities during a crisis.
Oh great, lets concentrate on the important matter of whether to sit next to a person from the opposing party while the country is on a fast run to a train wreck. Is it really of any great importance that the Democratic and Republican legislators are pairing off to sit together at President Obama’s State of the Union address?
A Democracy is a system of opposing sides and many voices, a one voice system is a Dictatorship in my opinion. If we all just need to get along and speak with one voice and have a love-in, our 200 year system of government has come to an end.
Let our leaders stop this false nonsence and start to work on solving the problems we face.
