A Great Patriot Letter

This came from a Democrat! I read it and it certainly hits the nail where it would hurt.
Google has the letter posted on their web site. This is well written…….and should be read by everyone in these United States! It will be well worth the three minutes it requires to read this. It is quite impressive.

You can be Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Independent or Libertarian, and I’ll bet this will hit a nerve. Our country is in real trouble.

Dear Senators:
>> 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. “Obamacare,” 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. (Let’s eliminate that exemption and put the Congress under the Affordable Health Care Act)
>> 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 and 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 $19 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 the country that I deeply love. You have 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 entireCongress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits and replacing their retirement with the same Social Security plan the rest of us will receive (if they don’t put that program into bankruptcy) . 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.

Sincerely,

Bill Schoonover
3096 Angela Lane
Oak Harbor, WA
>> Maybe….just maybe this is the reason the political establishment is against Trump. He may just kill the goose……

Best Speech Ever Without a Teleprompter

Bill Whittle is one of the fastest talking, well articulated, speech givers on the face of this earth. He doesn’t use a teleprompter and he keeps you listening throughout. This speech on the power of convictions excellent. All Republicans and Democrats can learn from his wisdom.

 

“. . . the gospel of envy . . .”

I received  this set of photos from a friend in Arizona today. I have to believe they are traveling the country at the speed of light. I’ll include the words, but I have no way to verify if they are truthful. Travel at your own risk. The messages on the billboards are right.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

These billboards will be going up on an electronic billboard on HWY 321 in Lenoir City, TN starting 1 Oct. It was a private project funded by private donations. It will be fun to see what the reaction will be. The ads will start to run October 1. (The only thing missing from the ads is the “Paid for by,” (the disclaimer is in very small print.)

One more important favor:

PLEASE send this entire presentation of nine billboards to all of your friends and family. We must strive to have thousands of voters look at our billboard messages by email and any other electronic means. I hope these messages will be seen by the entire country before November 6 . . .

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

Sick and Tired

IMGToday, I cleared my desk and did it quick enough to allow time for some of my news sites. They made me sick. I’m tired of reading article after article about lies, fraud, losses of liberty, and gay rights. When will this commotion end? Probably not in my lifetime. Remember I’m only at middle age so I have another seventy-five years to see this crap roll around the news everyday. Some of you youngsters have many more years than I do, and I hope you are as tired of hearing the same BS too.

Most of it is the result of the Progressive movement. They are good at team work, I give them that. One jerk speaks out and declares me a racist because I spoke negatively about a black, and their entire nation of Progressives jump in to support.

To me that is good and very bad. It is good because it supports the Progressive movement, it is bad because it supports the Progressive movement. I wish Republicans would develop the same team building ability. Our guys rely on logical argument even if they have to argue with one of their own. Catch a Republican in a lie and another Republican will call him on it.  Democrats catch a colleague in a lie and they will build on it.

There is a lot of talk about the division among the Republican party, but it is the Democrats that are making hay with that. I believe within the Republican group they are strategizing to beat Democrats. Republicans berated House Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Paul Ryan for selling out to the Dems on the latest budget deal. I contend that they put forth a strategy which looks forward to the 2014 election. Warring factions within the Republican party criticized Boehner for missing a great opportunity to beat back the Democrats. Again, I say Boehner put forth a strategy of sucking in the Dems by giving them something they can use at the elections. They reached across the aisle in a noon-partisan way. It’ll sound good. Hopefully, a united Republican party will drive the knife into the heart of the beast with the healthcare devil. The Dems won’t have a leg to stand on. The Republicans will only remind them of the gift they got during the budget deal.

Faction?

Today I heard several newscasters refer to the “faction” within the Republican party that is controlling goals of the party. Even Obama has referred to the “faction” driving the government shut down. Well folks, I’m here to tell you that the faction within the Republican party is larger than the non-faction group. Democrats would like to think that the driving force for the direction Republicans take comes from a small group of ten Tea Party folks who are making a lot of noise. (Why would Obama sic the IRS on Tea Party applications for tax-free status?)

The Tea Party folks are stronger and larger than either Obama or the Republican party will admit. They are voicing a strong opposition to the current trend of the Obama government headed toward socialism. The Tea Party fight against the Affordable Care Act began while it was still less than a thousand pages long. The Democrats fought hard to take control over one-sixth of the US economy and they used every trick in the book to make it happen,

What tricks? Number one was the sense of urgency to pass the bill without any rational debate. Second was controlling the message through the mainstream media. Third was using a Democrat controlled House and Senate to shutter their ears against constituent response. Fourth was bribing dissenting Democrats to change their minds. Not a single Republican voted for the bill.

The tricks didn’t stop there. The Supreme Court joined the fray by deciding to clarify the law to make a ruling. Remember the bill as written could not define whether we would be required to buy insurance (a clear violation of the Constitution) or be taxed for it. The head of the Supreme Court made a final decision by saying the bill doesn’t make sense unless it is clear on that point; was it a tax or a mandate to buy? Chief Justice Roberts decided the bill only makes sense if buying Health Care is a tax and not a mandate. This was not his decision to make, but he chose to make that ruling. He will have to deal with God on that one. Because of his fixing the law, which is not within his jurisdiction the law was upheld. A democrat Congress and Senate who could not write a clear law back then now demands that a Republican House present them with a “clean bill.”

At the time this all transpired, none of the members of the House of Representatives listened to their constituents, and the Senate lined up with the Imperial President.

I remember listening to Senator McCain telling us that the law can always be defunded. Yet, last week, he sided with the Democrats to defeat defunding instead of standing with his Republican constituents. If there is a faction within the Republican party John Mc Cain represents the faction siding with funding the ACA

Today, the President’s administrative people declared they were not concerned by how long the government shut down lasts because they were winning. I can only say those are fighting words for the Faction.

The difference between Obama, his party, and the Republicans, faction included, is integrity. Obama and Democrats are cage fighters, anything goes including eye gouging.

What the faction has to keep in mind is the democrat goal to make health care a single payer system. What ever we do as a faction short-term will only accelerate the system toward a complete government control of health care, like winning the battle but losing the war.

There is only one way to deal with Progressive Democrats, i.e. the same way you deal with Muslims. The final outcome is ugly, and not something Republicans have the stomach to follow through on, they are too principled and honest. On the other side, Obama now wages a battle to annihilate Republicans and the Republican Party. He has no moral compunction to do otherwise.

 

Be Forwarned

Since I have been able to see through Obama since his first campaign, I can only warn the “twelve” that this guy is setting you up. Don’t believe for a minute that he is genuinely trying to do some good for the country. His record doesn’t support positive moves to improve the economy, foreign policy, the military, nuclear disarmament, or anything. Learn a lesson from Russia, get what you want without any concessions. Learn a lesson from Benghazi, get thrown under the bus as an expendable. Learn a lesson from Fast and Furious, give your drug cartel buddies all the weapons they want, but take guns from you. Learn a lesson from the sequester, he is pissed that you let it happen, this dinner and new attitude is a step toward revenge. img003 There is not doubt that the “twelve” went to dinner with Obama for two reasons, 1) to give the appearance of bipartisan coöperation. 2) to get a really first class free meal.

You Promised Me!

img001

Evidently the President believes two things:

1.) The Sequester invented by Obama and signed into law by him supersedes the Mayan Calendar

2.) The Pope’s retirement shifts the papal privilege to speak infallibly to him.

President Obama’s refusal to follow the Constitution which deliberately set up three equal branches of government had him flying around the country at the mere cost of 175,000 dollars per hour to convince us, the American sheeple, that he didn’t invent the sequester and that if we don’t get him out of this jam it is  the end of the liberal give aways. The truth is the Sequester cuts are so small that the government spills that much liquor and food at the White House parties every month.

The President should have vetoed the bill, instead he signed it into law. The fact that Congress chooses not to write a new law to drop the Sequester is within their the power, and they are  renouncing the President’s feverish and greedy money grab. In this case, doing nothing is exactly the right thing to do. As Obama has told us repeatedly, “elections have consequences” he is learning that stupid moves by a president also have consequences. Long live the Sequester.

I’m getting on my knees to say my act of contrition tonight since the Sequester goes into effect at midnight, and America will end because Obama spoke infallibly when he said that.
