Good evening to all and sundry. Or it would be a good evening if I could just concentrate on My Lord this Easter. Instead, I'm reading the news and wondering how much more evil from my own government I can take before my head explodes. I've used three rolls of duct tape and I can still feel the pressure building.
From Justice Ginsburg's justification of sighting FOREIGN law in U.S. Constitutional cases to Reports that Obama's defense lawyers are threatening sanctions against anyone that files lawsuits to see Barry's real birth certificate.
We've got the Government taking over our private industries and financial systems, Obama doing what no other President in history has ever done, bowing to another nation's sovereign king, then lying through his teeth (or rather his spokesman's teeth) about it. And his pissing on the Declaration of Independance by giving a foreign board power over U.S. companies.
Now, we've got backdoor legislation being introduced to curb the 2nd amendment and yet another amnesty bill getting ready to head to congress, this year. No matter what the conservative belief, Barry's hell bent on attacking it.
He's racked up a pretty hefty debt and promised (well not directly, but it amounts to the same thing) to triple it in 9 years as his budget priorities start getting passed. And paying for it by increasing taxes on everyone. For those of you that smoke, how do you like that 128% jump in taxes on your cancer sticks? Tell me that isn't a tax increase on low income folks.
We've had hundreds of "Tea Parties" and the only major outlet covering them is FoxNews. Granted, they are the leader in ratings, but it doesn't change the fact that NO ONE in the government or the Presiden'ts office has even bothered to respond to the premise of these parties.
If dialogue and discourse fail, what is our next step? If we are ignored do we just keep having tea parties? Has anyone thought about the next step? Or does everyone involved in this use it like a therapist's chair. "I just need to get this off my chest. Won't you sit and listen?" Then after it's over they all go back to their homes, jobs, and unfair taxes with the moral superiority for having "stood up to the government". Nothing changes. No one in the government even seems to notice.
The whole thing reminds me of when my oldest son was a baby. We would tell him to do something or tell him "no" about something and he'd sit in the floor and scream or cry and we'd just go about our business. If we didn't give him the attention he wanted, he finally got tired of it and started doing something else. I think that's what the government is doing to us, ignoring us and hoping that we just go away. Trouble is, in the past, they were right.
I keep asking, what next? The silence is deafening.
