ARE YOU READY TO 'STAND UP' FOR YOUR COUNTRY?
THE COOKIE JAR IS EMPTY!
“We The Sheeple”

Thank you for visit and comments - always appreciated ...
However, it is Not just the Current President, nor the Current Congress - nor the past Ones - rather, it is the Embedded System itself! Nor is it Either Party - it is Both Parties - the entire Two-Party System is so Ingrained, and so Self-Generating, that its necessary Change is almost impossible!
We The People, need the Opportunity to Vote on Major Public Referendums, such as Limiting Terms of ALL OFFICES - One Term, or Two-Term MAXIMUMS - and NO ONE IN OFFICE will ever Vote FOR IT! It would be like Cutting their own Throats!
Just like the Principle of Separation of Powers - Judicial, legislative, Executive ... and Separation of Church and State ... We need Separation of Government Officials from Corporate Control.
The 'Rich and Powerful' - whether Individuals, or CEO's, or Corporate Boards of Directors, have ALWAYS been the 'Puppet-Masters' Way Up Top, Pulling All the Strings, making their Puppets 'DANCE!'
It may take a Total 'Grass-Roots' Effort - City by City - State by State - To Peacefully Demonstrate to the 'Powers that Be' that WE MEAN BUSINESS!
What just happened in EGYPT is a Perfect Example!
That Concept is now spreading throughout The Arab States like 'Wildfire!' The PEOPLE Had Enough - and made it perfectly Clear to the Rulers - WE WILL TAKE NO MORE!
My personal Belief is that EDUCATION & TECHNOLOGY as Learned by the YOUTHFUL is Responsible for this current Phenomena!
A Newer, Better Educated, Less Patient GENERATION has 'Stepped Up to the Plate' and
'Hit the Ball Out of the Park' ... A 'GRAND SLAM HOME-RUN!'
Our Individual Freedoms have been constantly and purposely 'Chipped Away' by 'Big Brother' for about Fifty Years now ...
It is High Time for 'The Sleeping Giant' - We The People - 300,000,000 American Citizens to Finally WAKE UP!
Peaceful, but Outspoken Protest in Every Form - Phone Calls, Emails, 'Snail-Mail' Letters, TWITTER, Petitions, Bumper Stickers, Assembly, Demonstrations, Face-To-Face - ALL MEANS - need to be employed by All Patriots Who LOVE This Country!
SAY IT! SPEAK IT! WRITE IT! POST IT!
Let 'THEM' All know that 'ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!'
On NPR today, several 'Experts' pointed out that our National Deficit has now reached 100 PERCENT of our GDP ...
NO CHANGE by our so-called Representatives may very well be CATASTROPHIC!
'WE THE SHEEPLE' are now BARE-ARSED NAKED ...
There is NO More Wool to be SHORN!
Peace ... Tom.
