Note the campaign poster comparison between the Republican and Democrat challengers, the message has still not changed nor have the outcomes, the country is still a mess.

This morning while I wait for my bride to get ready for a road trip I am reading e-mails and have some really great ones to share with you. My favorite quote is by Adlai Stevenson, the last great Governor of  Illinois. Aesop wins the most lasting quote award, true in BC and still true today.

 If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.

~Jay Leno~
The problem with political jokes is they get elected.
~Henry Cate, VII~
We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.
~Aesop~
If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn’t be any inducement to go to heaven.
~Will Rogers~
Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.
~Nikita Khrushchev~
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.
~Clarence Darrow~
Why pay money to have your family tree traced; go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
~Author unknown~
Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.
~John Quinton~
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.
~Oscar Ameringer~
  ;
I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.
~Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952~
A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.
~ Tex Guinan~
I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.
~Charles de Gaulle~
Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
~Doug Larson~
There ought to be one day — just one — when there is open season on senators.
~Will Rogers~

A Piece of History to Learn From

This is an incident I was totally unaware of. I have always wondered what would happen if “we the people” decided we have had enough. This video answers the question. It also answers why the local police are equipping themselves with armored cars, and military trained policemen.

Here  is another more recent example of how our government reacts to an organized citizen protest.

Why am I worried about these things? What will happen if our economy collapses and the country comes to a standstill. Bread costs a hundred dollars a loaf if you can find it, milk is two hundred dollars a gallon if you can find it, cars are out of gas and left where they did. No body works, and you begin to tear the woodwork off your house to fuel a fire to keep warm. What will happen then? The president will declare martial law, and suspend the Constitution. He becomes a dictator to save the country. He decides which camp you will call home from this point on. You will be killed if caught on the streets after curfew. We learn to live by a new set of rules, and our dream to enact term limits has vaporized. What will you do? The government is training for what they will do, but we will be an untrained chaotic mob.

I would rather solve the problem before we get to this point. That is why our government has to live within the constraint of a budget and not spend more than it can afford. Overspending will ultimately result in economic collapse.

Call your Representative today and demand that he/she support spending cuts, and the repeal of the ACA.

Sick Bastards

This lady presents a very compelling story about her motives for establishing a Tea Party group and the subsequent problems she had with the sick bastards at the IRS when applying for  tax exempt status. We must all stand up to this huge government and shrink it to what it is intended to do, protect our liberty, amen.

No IRS, no Department of Education, no Environmental Protection Agency, no Department of Homeland Security, no ATF, no DEA, no FMEA, no HHS,  just a strong military, and an unscrupulously honest Department of Justice. Everything else is a power grabbing pile of bullshit invented to turn America into a kingdom.

CPS Takes Baby After Parents Seek Second Medical Opinion

This piece of news is to confirm my post from April 10, 2013. Some readers were offended by my cartoon and opinion. Let me know if you are equally offended by this news piece. If you are not offended, you are the problem. Enjoy living in a communist state.

Another Transformation Clue

Just Maybe It Is . . .

Maybe it is me, but filing my tax return this year was not a particularly happy time. Why is that?

Maybe it is because I paid $2000 more this year than last, and I am lower than the middle class

Maybe it is because I got wildly confused about the forms required.

Maybe it was because it is my yearly review of what I spent.

Maybe it is because even though I paid more tax, I spent less than last year.

Maybe it is because it reminds me of how little fun I had this year because my expenses were mostly housing, food, and gasoline, and not for wine, theater productions, vacations, and great dinners out.

Maybe it is because I gained weight from eating low-cost pasta meals.

Maybe it is because I see what I pay and then hear about the forty-seven percent of the employed who don’t pay taxes.

Maybe it is because I see the élite 535 of our country spending it like it comes from a bottomless pit.

Or, maybe it is because I read a news article about the 9.8 million federal workers who are delinquent  paying their taxes.

Maybe it is because I have become a tax-slave.

We wonder why we are such a screwed-up-country. Look at the pile of paper in my tax return. Is that really what a retired old racist white guy should face on a fixed income? Just imagine the pile of paper a Corporation must have to file, then imagine the army of IRS agents needed to analyze all this stuff.

Maybe I am being critical because Obama continues to want even more from us.
