In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Maybe Biden will have some complaints. Madame Secretary gave a speech in which she mentioned that she and Leon Panetta were the instigators of the Bin Laden raid and Pal Joey did not want to do it. My guess is that Biden was cut out. On the subject of Hillary, a few days ago she also said that she had to travel the world cleaning up GWB’s mess. This just after brother Jeb gave her some half-assed medal, liberty, freedom, whatever.

    1. As Mandy would say: Isn’t she a special snowflake.

      The gutter sniping has begun from the woman who had military service in Bosnia. Chutzpah is thy name.

      We landed under sniper fire!
      We ran for cover, terrified!
      The bullets flew around my head!

      Hahahahahahahahahahaha and HA!

    Senator Patty Murray
    Senator Maria Cantwell
    Washington, DC, 20510

    Dear Senator(s):

    I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command
    Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after
    his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard,
    volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.

    Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look at my
    country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things
    abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated
    that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even
    keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few
    tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the
    taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us.

    Last year, the president spent an estimated 1.4 $billion on himself and his
    family. The vice president spends $millions on hotels. They have had 8
    vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have
    become America’s answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the
    “perfumed princes and princesses” of our country.

    In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act,
    a.k.a. “Obama Care,” a bill which no more than a handful of senators or
    representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our
    throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it substituting your own
    taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.

    You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the “one percenters,”
    consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while making 3.5 times the
    average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as
    the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which,
    of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).

    You understand very well the only two rules you need to know – (1) How to
    get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with the aid of
    an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain
    economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed
    and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote )
    who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called “safety net”
    has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50
    million on food stamps – pretty much all Democrat voters – and the program
    is absolutely rife with fraud with absolutely no congressional oversight?

    I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the
    seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is
    the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your
    virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership
    role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest
    profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.

    As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 – 1902),
    English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, “Power tends
    to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost
    always bad men.” I’m only guessing that this applies to the female sex as
    well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?
    While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government

    becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so
    much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to
    mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda
    or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use, and what
    health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations
    strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.

    As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government
    tell me “You’ll just have to take a pill,” while you, Senator, your
    colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their
    families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you
    are called home by your Creator while also enjoying a retirement beyond my
    wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.

    The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff
    will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be
    generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe
    that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares.
    This letter will, however, go on line where many others will have the chance
    to read one person’s opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its
    administration and its senators and representatives.

    I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all
    the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by
    law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $17 trillion
    national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and
    ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.

    My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or
    her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to
    destroy this country I deeply love and put it so far in debt that we will
    never pay it off while your lot improves by the minute, because of your
    power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House
    who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is
    how power has corrupted you and the entire Congress. The only answer to
    clean up this cesspool is term limits. This, of course, will kill the goose
    that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare to
    bring it up.

  3. Obama, Biden, Lew, and Kerry! Only one missing is Hillary. Who definitely doesn’t have or want any association with “His Arrogance”.

  4. Funny…we’re in a financial crisis, and he spends 45 minutes with his Treasury Secretary.

    He spends more time with BeyoncĂ© and Jay Z…

  5. I sincerely took pleasure in reading your site, you explained some good quality points. I want to bookmark your post. I saved you to delicious and yahoo bookmarks. I will attempt to revisit to your webpage and examine more posts.
