SORRY - BUT TIME FOR MORE BITCHING AND MOANING!

AND ------- ACTION !!!






CONGRESS SUCKS!

© - Tom Hyland - 01-27-09


Let us take a little Inventory:

1. 535 so-called ‘professionals’ DICTATE what happens in the lives of almost 300,000,000 Americans - THREE HUNDRED MILLION!

They live High, Wide, and Handsome - while we SCRAPE BOTTOM! WHY? They THINK they are ABOVE THE LAW! They MAKE the rules, but DON’T ABIDE by them!

2. 535 Lawyers - who are supposed to UPHOLD The Constitution and The Law - for the Protection of Society - ALLOWED a TYRANT to DICTATE whatever he chose, including the Invasion of another country - WHY? Because they had NO BACKBONES!

3. They all spend a Ga-zillion Dollars campaigning, in order to get elected, then SELL OUT to Corporations, Lobbyists, and other Special Interest Groups - WHY? Simple, adulterated GREED!

4. They Allowed, or sometimes even Promoted that greed and crookedness to spread like CANCER, throughout almost all divisions of government - FDA, IRS, DHEW, NIH, BANKING, CREDIT, INVESTMENT BANKING, MORTGAGE MARKET, FANNIE MAE, FREDDIE MAC, EPA, STATE DEPARTMENT, FOREIGN RELATIONS, NATO, UNITED NATIONS, NAFTA, CAFTA, and on, and on, and on!

5. They Allowed private Corporations, like ENRON, and their CPA firm, Arthur Anderson, to ‘cook the books’ and GET AWAY WITH IT - causing Thousands of Employees, Families, and other people to LOSE: their JOBS, their BENEFITS, their RETIREMENT PLANS, and ultimately, some of their HOMES! WHY? APATHY!

6. They Allowed Foreign Countries and Foreign Companies to actually BUY and OWN AMERICAN BUILDINGS, REAL ESTATE, COMPANIES, and even SEAPORTS! Years ago, it was the ARABS, the JAPANESE, and a few other countries - now, AMOCO has sold out to BRITISH PETROLEUM!

Any High School Kid can tell you that this is not only STUPID, but also DANGEROUS - it totally goes against the grain of NATIONAL SECURITY! In fact, I have never agreed even with the concept of Foreign Embassies being EXEMPT on OUR SOIL, as well as the ridiculous Diplomatic Immunity, which ALLOWS SPIES to get away with usurping our Local, state, and National Laws! DUH!

7. They have Allowed private corporations like Haliburton, General Motors, and other WARMONGERS, to make EXCESS PROFITS, by catering to our Armed Services WAR Needs, supplying such various and sundry things as - HUMMERS and ICE CREAM! Those that DON’T get BLOWN UP by IED’s, can enjoy a nice dessert! WHY? AVARICE! GREED! STUPIDITY!

8. They have Allowed Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and other Companies to consistently SCREW THE PUBLIC, and especially the SICK and AGED, by charging exorbitant prices for drugs and medicines, thereby GOUGING people who have no means or wherewithal to fight back! They do NOT want to find CURES, they want to continue SELLING TO A CAPTIVE AUDIENCE! IT IS WRONG! DESPICABLE! And totally unnecessary! WHY? POWERFUL LOBBIES!

9. They have Allowed the FDA and FOOD Manufacturers to CREATE AN EPIDEMIC OF OBESITY AND DIABETES, as well as loading our foods and drinks with STEROIDS, SUGARS, SALTS, FATS, CHEMICAL PRESERVATIVES AND POISONS! WHY? Same reason as above - keep the SHEEP in the FOLD! ADDICT THEM - just like TOBACCO, and so-called DIET PRODUCTS that do NOT WORK! WHY? DITTO ON LOBBIES!

10. They have bandied about the Issue of a National Health Insurance Act for OVER 40 YEARS NOW - kicking it around like a political FOOTBALL! Guess what girls and boys - it is 4th Down and 2009 - SCORE A GOAL, OR GET OUT OF THE GAME - PUT SOME NEW BLOOD ON THE FIELD, WHO CAN AND WILL SCORE!

YES - my Friends, I could go on and on - the FAB 535 - are so crooked and disgusting, and callous that I could just SCREAM! Both Parties are GUILTY! Bi-Partisan, Non-Partisan, Left-Wing Liberals, Right-Wing Conservatives - ALL IN CAHOOTS! ALL GUILTY! WHY?

BECAUSE ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE ALLOWED THEM TO DO SO!

OUR APATHY IN NOT SPEAKING OUT - AND OUR STUPIDITY IN RE-ELECTING THE SAME CRIMINALS - AND OUR LAZINESS IN ‘COPPING OUT’ BY SAYING “OH, WHAT CAN I DO? I’M JUST ONE PERSON!

In closing, I have copied and pasted the following BLOG posted by a Friend of mine at Authors Den - JOSEPH ONE-LIGHT:


Bailed out bank execs still in charge!

Something to make your blood boil ...

Nearly nine out of every 10 executives are still on the job at banks which received federal bailout money. These same executives were at the helm of the ship and steering the course well before smashing into the rocks.

The Bush Administration gave $350 Billion Dollars to them with no strings attached. It has since been discovered that the recipients spent the money to give the execs bonuses worth millions of dollars while the rest of the funds were spent on other frivolous activities (like redecorating their offices). What do you think about this situation?

Should these execs be allowed to keep their jobs even though they’ve failed so miserably? Do they deserve any bonuses (on top of their outrageous salaries)?

Please call or write your elected representatives with your honest opinions. Thank You!

IF OBAMA DOES NOTHING TO PROSECUTE THESE CEO'S, THEN ALL THE REST IS JUST PURE
'BULL-SHIT' ...

P.S. went to the site - PUBLIC LIAISON -

SICK JOKE - no matter how many times you click 'contact us' it does NOTHING!

Another subterfuge to try to BEDAZZLE THE STUPID SHEEP!

Well said Tom. There is a representative government in Washington all right. The problem is…. who or what the hell is it they represent? One thing is for sure….. it ain’t The United States of American or American Citizens.

How so sadly true, my friend.

Tom:
It is always time to bitch and moan about the situation we find ourselves in: and you are correct, it is due to our own apathy. No matter what our 535 are saying and doing, it is always about the money and power. Kinda makes me want to change my last name! Watch our nation embrace socialism just to ease the pain we are feeling. We are still depending on our dog to guard our supper.
