I don't usually post political things, though it seems that I'm starting to say that more and more LOL, the truth is the more our illustrious leaders (TPTB) try to shove things down our throats, for the good of the people of course, the more I have to say about what is going on. Why can't they just leave us alone? Specifically the socialized health care they want to force everyone to participate in, choosing not to participate makes us criminals, the reason, they say is everyone has to pay in order to make it financially possible to cover everyone. I call BS, did you know that all congress members, even if they only serve one term, get paid for the rest of their life and get free healthcare plus all of the other perks they have? So, how about cutting that out, pay them for the job they do while they do it, uh, just like the rest of us do? Make them have to save for their own retirement and rely on Social Security and Medicare. TPTB say that they want equality for everyone, how about including themselves in that so called equality? How much money would that save? I'd bet that would go pretty far in covering the poor, uninsured and under insured.
Here's another thing, I received a jury duty summons last month, it said that there were certain things that would exempt a potential jury member, one of those was if you were a member of congress or employed by congress. So, that seems to be another perk, no jury duty.
What prompted this rant you ask? I received an interesting email from a friend, this is what it had to say:
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution,
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn't pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered...in all of its' forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution,:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."
If each person who receives/reads this contacts a minimum of Twenty people on their Address list, and in turn asks each of those to do likewise in three days, all of the people in US should have received the Message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.
What do you think? Sounds pretty good to me. :) Uncle Big Bro, keep your nose and fingers out of my business and pocketbook!
Another thing I saw on TV today, on Fox news, they were talking about our government's concern about militias, they want to lump together patriot movement, the Oath Keepers with so called right wing loons, anarchists and such, they were showing videos of people in military garb shooting at targets, Bill O'Reily was interviewing someone who kept referring to these people as radical right wing, tin foil hat wearing, conspiracy theorist who believe these "conspiracies" such as prison camps for the US citizens, our gov bringing in non-US military to control the masses, martial law being right around the corner. It seems to me that TPTB are campaigning big time against anyone who belongs to a group that might rise up against them when the time comes. Bill O'Riley said he was going to invite someone from the Oath Keepers to be on his show tomorrow, Thurs, Feb 18, for an interview, it just might be interesting.
I wonder how many alphabet gov agencies will visit my blog because of this post? I still get them, just not as often, that might change now. Before anyone posts a comment about me being paranoid or thinking TPTB are spying on me, no they aren't "spying", they visit in plain open sight, they don't hide. I am completely aware of the fact that if "they" really wanted to spy on me, without my knowledge, they are more than capable of doing it. My theory is that "they" want me to see them, it's a form of intimidation, sorta like the mall cop that follows you through the store, standing close to you without actually doing or saying anything to you, it's just for the intimidation factor. I am truly sorry if I offended any mall cops. LOL.
One more thing, while on the political soapbox, there seems to be a lot of talk in political circles about the budget, it's simple actually, in each and every American home, people have to decide how much to spend and on what, if you choose to blow your money, then you might not have enough left over to pay bills, if you are getting in over your head in debt, then STOP SPENDING MONEY, spending more money when you are drowning in debt is insanity. So, to TPTB, stop spending more money, cut back on what is being spent now, stop with the tax and spend already, it's NOT WORKING nor is it the right thing to do.
End of political ranting, for now.
