Open Letter to the Nation’s Leadership

    On June 17th Glenn Beck read an open letter written by Janet Contreras.  This letter expresses her frustration and anger over the attempt by our national leadership to void the constitution and convert this country into a socialist dictatorship against the will of the American people.

    Click on this link to read the full text of  Janet’s letter.  You will likely agree with her that our representatives are not doing their jobs of being representatives,but are attempting to take the country by coup.

    Read the letter and if you agree,go to the petition site and add your name to the cosigners of the petition.  Let our nation’s leadership know what we the people of this great nation think of their attempt to do away with the laws,traditions,and way of life of our great nation.

    And it came to pass . . .

    (Author unknown)

    And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America ,having lost their morals,their work initiative,and their will to defend their liberties,chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as “The One”. He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning;but He hypnotized the people telling them,“I am sent to save you. My lack of experience,my questionable ethics,my monstrous ego,and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you with Hope and Change. Go,therefore,and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil,that he has defiled the nation,and that all he has built must be destroyed.”

    And the people rejoiced,for even though they knew not what “The One”would do,he had promised that he would bring change,and they proclaimed “Yes We Can”.

    And “The One”said “We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!”

    And the people said,“Hallelujah!!  Change is good!”

    Then He said,“We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,”—- And the people said “Sock it to them!”“—- and “Redistribute their wealth.”

    And then He said,“Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody”

    And the people said,“Show us the money!”

    And Joe the plumber asked,“Are you kidding me? You’re going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??”

    And “The One”ridiculed and taunted him,and Joe’s personal records were hacked,publicized,and ridiculed;though no crime could be found.

    One lone reporter asked,“That shouldn’t be,isn’t that Marxist policy?”

    And she was banished from the kingdom!

    Then a citizen asked,“With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge,how will you deal with radical terrorists?”

    And “The One”said,“Simple. I shall sit with them and talk kindly to them and show them how nice we really are;and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!”

    And the people said,“Hallelujah!!  We are safe at last,and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”

    Then “The One”said,“I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.”

    And one,lone voice said,“But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.”

    So “The One”said,“Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!”

    And the people said,“Hallelujah!! Show us the money!”

    Then “The One”said,“I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!”

    And the people yawned and the already slumping housing market fully collapsed.

    And He said,“I shall mandate employer-funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage,and lower the white collar wage.  And I shall also give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and even transportation to the free clinics.”

    And the people said,“Give me some of that!”

    Then he said,“I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.”

    And the people said,“Where’s my rebate check?”

    Then “The One”said,“I shall bankrupt the coal industry,and perhaps even the oil industry (Cap &Trade/Carbon Tax) and though electricity rates will skyrocket,we shall soon build wind farms and solar power stations and drive green cars that I shall mandate in Detroit!”

    And the people said,“Coal is dirty,coal is evil,no more coal!  But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.”

    So “The One”said,“Not to worry. If your rebate ($10/week) isn’t enough to cover your extra expenses ($3,000/year),we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!”  “Only the fat cats will have to pay.”

    Then He said,“Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s grant them amnesty,Social Security,free education,free lunches,free medical care,bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing…”

    And the people said,“Hallelujah!!”And they made him King!

    And so it came to pass that employers,facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes,raised their prices and laid off workers;though they sold much less of their products.   Others simply gave up and went out of business,and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff.  The banking industry was destroyed.  Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

    So “The One”again blamed the prior administration,extended unemployment benefits to a year,bailed out his favorite banks,and then took over the banks and auto industries.  “The One”said,“I am the “The One”–The Messiah –and I’m here to save you!  We shall just print more money so the government will have enough!” “Surely one trillion dollars will make everyone happy.”  And immediately the Fed complied and the money presses roared.

    And China reconsidered their one trillion dollars of loans to the US ,,and threatened to call in their debts. Other foreign trading partners said unto “The One”,“Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung!  You will have to pay more.. for everything.. as your dollar becomes worth less.”

    And the people said,“Wait a minute.. That is unfair!!”

    And the world said,“Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced.  Lo,you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. What factories are not owned by your government are owned by us.  Now you shall play by our rules!”

    And “The One”said “Americans are arrogant,divisive,and derisive!”   “We will listen.”

    And the people cried out,“Alas,alas!! What have we done?”

    But yea verily,it was too late. The people eventually set upon “The One”and spat upon him and stoned him,and his name was dung. But the once mighty nation was no more;and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change that “The One”had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them from within,and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

    And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,“Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!”

    But it was too late,and the once-glorious “Home of the Brave and Land of the Free”was no more..

    The Tea Party –An Idea Whose Time has Come

    american_tea_bag2

    On December 16th 1773 colonists disguised as Indians boarded British ships in the port of Boston and siezed the cargo of tea and tossed it into the sea.  This was in opposition to the “Tea Tax”which had been imposed on the colonists by the British Parliament.  They had no representation in parliament and demanded it was unfair they should be taxed without representation.  This great “Boston Tea Party”led directly to the war for independence that started only a little over three years later.

    Today we are in similar situations in this country.  Our elected “representatives”of both parties have been ignoring the people for years and spending public money like drunken sailors.  They have now become so irresponsible even China,who has been buying America’s debt for years is beginning to say,“No more!”   The latest in these violations was their voting for a $500 BILLION (Thats $500,000,000,000 Dorothy) bill WITHOUT EVEN READING IT!!!! Now they are printing money like crazy to cover these expenditures.  That’s new unbacked dollars that will make inflation soar,perhaps the cruelest tax of all.

    People are now beginning to say,“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to stand for it anymore.”   Trillions of dollars have been spent or squandered on “bailouts”and phony “stimulus”bills that favor bankers and political buddies.  This is making huge numbers of Americans very upset at the wholesale mortgaging of the future for them and their children.  At latest count the expenditures of the last six months alone have created an indebtedness of about $30,000 for every household in America.  If you add interest and inflation to that debt it pushes it to well in excess of $100,000 per household over the next 10 years.

    Around the country people are having protests and calling them “Tea Parties”.  Attendance has been increasing with many having thousands of “party goers”attending.  These protests are not aimed at one political party because both political parties have been guilty of the same thing.

    The TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Parties have gained momentum and there is now a huge rally planned for Tax Day (April 15th) in cities all over the country.  There was one such day back in February when there were parties in forty cities.  The Tax Day Tea Party is expected to have protests in over 300 cities nationwide and well may become the largest multi-city protest in American history.

    Www.teapartyday.com asks the questions:

    Are you fed up with a Congress and a president who:

    • vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it?
    • are spending trillions of borrowed dollars,leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying?
    • consistently give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
    • want to take your wealth and redistribute it to others?
    • punish those who practice responsible financial behavior and reward those who do not?
    • admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
    • run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
    • want government controlled health care?
    • want to take away the right to vote with a secret ballot in union elections?
    • refuse to stop the flow of millions of illegal immigrants into our country?
    • appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department?
    • want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
    • want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity,gas and home heating fuels?
    • want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
    • take money from your family budget to pay for their federal budget?

    If so,participate in the TEA party rally,the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party.”

    Many are deciding  to “go out for tea”on tax day.  I suspect I will because I’m TEA’d.  How about you?
    Perhaps this could be our theme song:  http://susie1114.com/10percentisgoodenough.html


    Promises,Promises,Promises

    There is no doubt that Barack Obama is a very charismatic speaker.  He talks a good game,but what about the substance of his messages?   Here is a link to one of his campaign speeches.  In under two minutes  he made six sincere sounding promises,and in less that two months of his administration he has already broken every single one. Promises,promises,promises –  broken,broken,broken –lies,lies,lies,and he ain’t alone in Washington!!   Don’t believe this based on what I say,here’s the link,go there and look for yourself.

    Obama’s Promises

    This administration has already shown it offers nothing more than smoke and mirrors,and the American people are suffering the results.  Six specific promises given here in this one speech,every single one a broken promise or an outright lie.  Here is the count:

    1. “I will also institute an absolute ban so that no registered lobbyists can curry influence on my administration based on how much they can spend on  a fancy dinner.” Fact:  several of his top appointments in his administration are those same lobbyists and ex-lobbyists.  Several of these withdrew their names for top spots because it was shown they were tax cheats as well.
    2. “I’ll make our government open and transparent.” Fact:  the “Stimulus Bill” was passed without even one congressman or senator having the opportunity to read it in its entirety,much less the public.  This 1000 plus page document was released after 2:00 a.m. Washing time and voted on first thing in the morning.
    3. “I’ll make it impossible for congressmen or lobbyist to sneak porkbarrel projects or corporate welfare into laws when nobody’s looking. . .” Fact:  that same  “Stimulus Bill” alone contains over 8000 such porkbarrel projects that he encouraged and willingly signed.
    4. “When theres a bill that ends up on my desk as president,you the public will have five days to look on line and find out what’s in it before I sign it.” Another promise broken in the “Stimulus Bill” and the “Omnibus Spending Bill”  The contents of both hidden from the public view until the last minute.
    5. “When there are meetings between lobbyists and a government agency,we will put as many of those meetings as possible on line for every American to watch.” Nothing yet two months down.  Come on now  it ain’t that hard to put stuff on the internet!
    6. “When there is a tax bill being debated in congress you will know the names of the corporations that will benefit and how much money they would get and we will put every corporate tax break and every pork barrel project on line for every American to see and you will know who asked for them and you will know if your representative is actually representing you.” Another promise broken in both major spending bills passed in under two months of his administration.  The largest spending packages in history!

    We Americans have been too lazy to do the footwork to hold our politicians to task for their broken promises and downright lies.   We want to believe that although it is obvious the system is broken that “our politician” or “our representative” or “our candidate” is one of the good guys.  Washington is not full of “good guys”.  Good guys do exist,but they are in the minority.  If you want to know who they are look at who voted for the bills listed above.  If their vote is in they “Yea” column,they’re representing somebody’s  interest,but it sure ain’t yours!

    You can’t hear what the truly “good guys”  in Washing are saying.  They are regularly being drowned out by the noise of a bunch of pigs feeding at the public tax trough.

    Wake up Dorothy,you’re not in Kansas anymore! America is being played as a fool and it’s going to get worse unless we get off our fat lazy behinds and start contacting representatives telling them we are not going to sit by while they steal us blind!   This is a big money Washington power grab,nothing less.  Get involved or get ready say “goodby” to the freedoms we have enjoyed in this country for the last 200+ years.
