Open your eyes you un-informed leftist libbies. This is just a bit of the vitriol the fascist left spews, these are the haters, the rascists, the anti democracy, anti free speech left, they are the parasites the democrats groom.
Now the simple minded murdering Somali pirates are threatening to kill any Americans encountered on the ocean........ How would I solve this? I would order the USA Navy to take out any rogue pirate looking vessel off the coast of East Africa from now on, forever, the prisoners we have now, summary execution, and delivered from 20,000 feet to the dock they left from. If one more American is killed disable every port on the coast of Somalia, as soon as they try to rebuild destroy them again. All applications, for any Somali coming to this country declined and rendered illegal.
This POS we have for a POTUS is an embarrassment and downright shame, if you voted for this POS, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Not to be confused with private sector employee unions. These public sector unions are at the heart of the economic troubles that most USA states face. These unions feed the Democratic political machines. The USA taxpayer pays these union public sector employees their salaries, pensions and healthcare for life. Does someone pay for your healthcare and pensions for life? H3ll no. They should all be made illegal. If they don't like it, fire them all! There are 46 million unemployed USAmericans that will be willing to step in and take over, trust me there is nothing special about anything they do.............and don't give me that police and firefighter crap, it ain't rocket science, teachers, bureaucrats, let the free market and common sense run the local, state govts. and federal also.
One of the big points being left out of the discussion is the difference between public and private sector unions.
Taxpayers have been screwed forever and again are being screwed by the obfuscation of the subject and we are sick of it.
From an e-mail:
Subject: The last column of a retiring columnist, which sure opens your eyes.
Taxed By Politicians
Charlie Reese's final column:
A very interesting column. Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.
Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinal...
Charley Reese is retiring. His last column is this one.
Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.
Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinal, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It's a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!
545 vs. 300,000,000 People -By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want.. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.

Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid....
Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'
GO AHEAD. . . BE AN AMERICAN!!!
Every Red Blooded American should jump in line to support the Green Bay Packers! The Packers defeated the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon thus earning them the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl. By doing so, they saved the Hard-Working, Red Blooded, Taxpaying Americans literally several million dollars of tax money. How you say? Simple... we were told that if the Chicago Bears had won that President Obama (and probably his family) would be attending the Super Bowl to cheer on his hometown team. Since the Bears lost....the President won't be attending. The money saved from not using Air Force 1, the limosines, all the additional security, and let's not forget Michelle Obama's entourage, is literally several million dollars! Therefore every American should cheer on the Green Bay Packers at the Super Bowl to show them our gratitude. With that said...let's circulate this email to everyone we know so they can understand why they should cheer for America's team...the Green Bay Packers!
The person who calculated this bit of information has been a professor
at The University of West Virginia in Morgantown, West Virginia for
the last forty some years.
A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800 gallons
of gas a year.
A vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons
of gas a year.
So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction will reduce gasoline
consumption by 320 gallons per year.
The government claims 700,000 clunkers have been replaced so that's
224 million gallons saved per year.
That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels
is about 5 hours worth of US consumption.
More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs
about $350 million dollars.
So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350 million.
We spent $8.57 for every $1.00 we saved.
I'm pretty sure they will do a better job with our health care, though.
