I am angry. No, angry is not the word for what I am right now. How dare these politicians play games with MY money and YOUR money? How dare they play God with my life, my children's lives, your lives? There have been times in our history when the people were so angry that they actually rose up against the government.
Is now one of those times?
Look around. Is there anyone out there that you trust to look out for your best interest....in government? Do you trust the media to give you the real details of what is actually taking place? The fact that Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are two of the major players negotiating these deals makes me want to pull my freaking hair out. Where is the media? I know that they are biased....I get that. Yet, you would think that they would want to look out for their own almighty dollar.
Everyone continues to tell us how dire things are and how much worse they are about to get. What do the Democrats do in this crisis? The same thing that they want to do if Barack Obama wins in November.......TAX and SPEND.
How dare these politicians ask us for $700 billion? Didn't you hear? We may get this money back and more. What would Democrats do with that "more"? Surely, they are going to put it towards our debt? No. Will they use it to stimulate our economy or give the American people a tax rebate? No. Will they use it to pay for Social Security that is already in jeopardy? No.
Ok...what are they going to do with it then? 20% FREAKING percent will go to ACORN? Are you kidding me? Are you freaking kidding me? Absolutely NOT! No way....No How!!!! Do you hear us politicians? I don't care what party you belong to.....if you allow this disgusting point to get into this bill......you will be voted out!! We will no longer stand for your crap!
If this provision some how makes it into this bill, this government will no longer be representative of me or you. It will be time for this country to rise up against it's government. It will be time for the next Boston Tea Party..............we will call it the Washington Tea Party.
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!! We are done. My tax dollars will no longer go to support Washington's stupidity. I will no longer reward those asinine politicians that make their almighty buck blowing away my bucks.
Yes. I am angry. No I am not alone. The question now...................what do you do with YOUR anger? If you have not contacted your representatives by email or phone yet, it is your duty as an American to speak up and be heard. If you chose to sit and do nothing, you do so at your own peril!!!
UPDATE: It appears that the Republicans, Shelby & Boehner, were able to get the ACORN provision stripped out of this bill. We will see concrete details later today. This bill still stinks for the American people, but at least my blood pressure can come down a little now.
The only way to put checks and balances on this run-away Congress is to have John McCain in the White House. Otherwise, who knows what kind of gimme's these corrupt organizations will get next.
