Government needs criminals to justify its existence.

Think about it.

Depressing…….

March 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Went to a “Town Hall” meeting last night, hosted by my “representative” Mel Watt. Very depressing. A bunch of folks cheering for and applauding some guy they don’t know. Then after 45 minutes of him telling us what a good job he’s doing not representing us, he opened the floor to questions. Yes, he actually said he purposely didn’t hold town hall meetings before the health care bill, because he wasn’t interested in what we had to say to him!!! But anyway, back to the questions. It was disgusting to see a group of people groveling to some polititcian, begging him to send their money back to them. Send us money for this bill, send us money for that project. The thing that kept running thru my mind during this whole session – why did you give your money away to begin with? I’ve got one thought now. And here it is:

History ALWAYS repeats itself

March 22, 1765 – British parliament passes the “Duties in American Colonies Act 1765”, AKA the Stamp Act.
May 30, 1765 – the Virginia House of Burgess passes the Virginia Resolves, opposing England’s burdensome taxation of the colonies.
June 6, 1765 – the Massachusets proposes a meeting of all of the colonies House of Burgesses in NYC. Massachusets notifies England immediately of this proposed meeting.
August 4, 1765 – Andrew Oliver – a Massachusets stamp agent was hung in effigy, from a large elm tree. This tree later became known as the Liberty Tree.
August 27, 1765 – A crowd in Newport, Rhode Island builds a gallows and hangs in effigy the local stamp agent, as well as a local Doctor and a lawyer. The crowd later attacks and vandalizes the homes of these men.
Other protests and violence spread throughout the 13 colonies until
March 17, 1766 – King George finally agreed to repeal Stamp Act.
***************Fast Forward 245 Years ALMOST TO THE DAY********************
March 21, 2010 – The 111th US Congress passes the unConstitutional Healthcare ‘Reform’ bill, despite over 60% of the population objecting to the bill, as well as the methods used to pass it.
March 23, 2010 – President Barack Hussein Obama signs the bill into law at 11am. 12 States follow the signing of the bill into law by filing lawsuits agains the federal government arguing that it violates the US Constitution. The Liberty Council, as well as other private groups will also file suits.
What does the future hold? Well, history shows that there will be protests, riots, violence, and eventual repeal of the law. History ALWAYS repeats itself.

Until next time……….

Love letter from U.S. Census Bureau

Dear Resident:
A few days ago, you should have received a request (sounded more like a threat to me) to participate in the 2010 Census. It was sent to your address as part of our effort to conduct the most accurate (and privacy invading) census possible.
It is important that you respond(Why exactly?). If you have already provided your census information (I did), please accept our sincere thanks. There is no need to provide your answers again(then quit harassing me via mail). If you have not responded (I did), please provide your information as soon as possible.
If you need help completing your questionnaire (I am smart enough to count the people that live in my home), please call 1-866-872-6868, or para ayuda en espanol, llame al 1-866-328-2010 (Lo siento, hablo ingles en mi casa). The TDD telephone number for assistance is 1-866-783-2010. Census Bureau staff are available to help (no thanks, I can count) you every day, between 8:00 a.m., and 9:00 p.m., 7 days a week.
Thank you.
Sincerely,

Robert M. Groves

Don’t know….

what to say….
Our “representatives” have no idea what they promise when they take office….. for example:
“Today, this body, this institution, enshrined in the first article of the Constitution by our Founding Fathers as a sign of the importance they placed on this House, should be looking with pride on this legislation and our work. But it is not so. … When we came here, we each swore an oath to uphold and abide by the Constitution as representatives of the people. But the process here is broken. The institution is broken. And as a result, this bill is not what the American people need, nor what our constituents want. … We have failed to listen to America. And we have failed to reflect the will of our constituents.”
No, Mr. Boehner. You did not take an oath to support and defend the “will of our constituents.”

I’m honestly not surprised that this thing passed. Call it reform if you want. I’m not going to. I’m just surprised that Washington D.C. is not on fire right now. Honestly, how can our “representatives” even CONSIDER making it a law that you have to buy insurance?????

*********************************************************************
Our elected officials have turned a deaf ear to the voices of a clear majority of Americans by railroading an unwanted government takeover of our healthcare system. Congress passed the “ObamaCare” bill with provisions that I believe are overtly unconstitutional.
This bill contains infringements on our individual liberties, which will only continue to erode under our current government. I’m encouraging like-minded citizens like you to take a stand and sign Liberty Counsel’s Statement of Support. Please join me. Go here to sign:

More government stupidity

March 20, 2010 Leave a comment

Was talking with a FedEx delivery driver last week. He mentioned that lately “it was like Christmas” for him all over again. I asked him what he meant…..
He said this new government “free cell phone” program had him “in every trailer park and housing project in the county”. Yep. Now your “civil rights” include cell phone service, eh? No thanks, I’ll take unalienable rights over civil rights any day.

Until next time…..

Time for a headcount….

Got the census form in the mail today. Sent it out, too. Blank. With this nice letter attached.

To whom it may concern:

The number of people residing in my home is 6.

This is the only information that I will disclose to the Census Bureau, per Article 1, section 2, Clause 3 of the Constitution. My housing status, telephone number, name, sex, age, date of birth, race, or ethnicity have nothing to do with apportioning direct taxes, or determining the number of representatives in the House of Representatives. The Constitution established a federal government of limited, enumerated powers, and it does not give the Census Bureau the authority to request any additional information beyond what is defined in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of said document. Therefore, I am under no Constitutional obligation to provide such information.

Attached you will find the unconstitutional form I received in my mailbox.

********************************************************

Will keep you up to date on any responses I may receive.

Until next time…..
