Cash and Politics

I have a suggestion, with the exception of violent criminals, let's  open up all the prison gates and let those confined out and lockup all the politicians. If we did that maybe the average little guy would once again be part of America. After all, we are the one's that made this country great. While we fight, shed our blood and give our lives for the fight of freedom, they sit in their plush office's making deals under the table selling us down the river.

They've instituted lucrative and very profitable tax breaks for companies willing to close their door's here and move oversea's. Then look us in the face and tell us how hard they are working to preserve American jobs. Right!

I remember a few years ago when our country was really suffering economic depression how our congressmen and senators voted themselves $30,000 and $40,000 a year raise's. Now here is the little guy, unemployed, no health insurance, unemployment benefits expired, savings/retirement accounts exhausted, no money for basic needs and in the process of loosing everything they'd worked for.  I know because I was one of them. Then these political goofball's would get on national TV and tell how the unemploymnt rate was dropping. It was dropping alright, what was dropping was the little guy off the list to receive unemployment checks.

I've finally figured out how to tell if a politician is lying. Watch and see if their lips are moving!

"We the people" has become "We the politician will Screw You!". I really think that all political rally's should start out with the chant: "We will, We Will, Screw You!". Atleast then I could believe them.

I say put the politicians in jail. Cuba would be a fitting place. After all, our political leaders are the real threat to American freedom. Put a mustash on President Bush and he'd look like the twin of Hitler!

The future Bill of Rights:

You have the right to pay higher taxes.

You have the right to speak English as long as it's not in public.

You have the right to assemble prvided we approve it and issue a permit.

You have the right to keep a bare arms provided we approve your application.

You have the right to life, liberty and the persuit of happiness provided you are a politician.

You have the freedom of religion provided you don't use the word, God, display God's picture or the tem commandments anywhere they can be seen or heard by another individual.

Finally, if your the little guy, you have the right to bend over and spread your cheeks because, as the politicians say; "We will, We will, Screw You!".

Illinois<br />
Illinois law allows the sealing or expungement of parts of the records of a conviction.[8] Sealing a conviction prevents the public, including employers, from gaining access to that record.[8] To be eligible for sealing of a conviction record in Illinois one must have been sentenced to supervision.[8] A waiting period of three years also is required, beginning at the time of discharge from supervision, where no convictions were entered.[8] Some misdemeanors are ineligible for sealing.[8] All felony convictions are ineligible for sealing except for class 4 felony drug possession and prostitution offenses.[8]<br />

I just wrote a real lengthy reply and for some reason it was not saved,but in a nutshell I agree for the most part with you, however when I think of politicians in their fancy and high class world, I always end up thinking of war. And when I think of war I think of Vietnam and of course our present one. But Jackson Browne wrote a song that to this day and no matter what war , I always find is the best way for me to say my feelings on the subject and i would like to share it with you. Id love to hear some comments as well.<br />
"Lives in the balance" <br />
by Jackson Browne<br />
I've been waiting for something to happen<br />
For a week or a month or a year<br />
With the blood in the ink of the headlines<br />
And the sound of the crowd in my ear<br />
<br />
You might ask what it takes to remember<br />
When you know that you've seen it before<br />
Where a government lies to a people<br />
And a country is drifting to war<br />
<br />
And there's a shadow on the faces<br />
Of the men who send the guns<br />
To the wars that are fought in places<br />
Where their business interest runs<br />
<br />
On the radio talk shows and the t.v.<br />
You hear one thing again and again<br />
How the u.s.a. stands for freedom<br />
And we come to the aid of a friend<br />
<br />
But who are the ones that we call our friends--<br />
These governments killing their own?<br />
Or the people who finally can't take any more<br />
And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone<br />
<br />
There are lives in the balance<br />
There are people under fire<br />
There are children at the cannons<br />
And there is blood on the wire<br />
<br />
There's a shadow on the faces<br />
Of the men who fan the flames<br />
Of the wars that are fought in places<br />
Where we can't even say the names<br />
<br />
They sell us the president the same way<br />
They sell us our clothes and our cars<br />
They sell us every thing from youth to religion<br />
The same time they sell us our wars<br />
<br />
I want to know who the men in the shadows are<br />
I want to hear somebody asking them why<br />
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are<br />
But they're never the ones to fight or to die<br />
<br />
And there are lives in the balance<br />
There are people under fire<br />
There are children at the cannons<br />
And there is blood on the wire<br />
It would just be impossible for me to say it any better.
