  2. There is a reason why the Repubs aren't making a big issue of this.

    Hint - John Ensign, David Vitter, Tom Coburn

    Other reasons may include - DeLay, Cunningham, Sherwood, Ney, Foley, Lewis, Burns, Stevens, Craig, Vitter, Miller, Renzi etc

    I'm not choosing one side or the other , it's all politicians.
  4. There is a "Political Class" that is full of entitlements.

    They don't have to obey the laws that you do. They vote on their own pay raises. They get automatic cost of living adjustments. They get taxpayer subsidized health care.

    But they have the best interests of the little people at heart.

    Really they do.
  5. Yes Ms. Pelosi, the swamp has been drained, and the scum is there for all to see. 89% of us see it for what it is, a cesspool of corruption and incompetence on both sides of the isle. I don't know what the hell the other 11% are looking at. I guess even a maggot has some fans.
  6. Ensign and Vitter were private matters. If it was perfectly ok for Clinton to be getting interns in the Oval Office, as we were told repeatedly, I'm not sure I understand this finger pointing. Not sure what you think Coburn did.

    I know that obama/Holder do not prosecute blacks and particularly corrupt black democrat pols, but how is what Maxine Waters is accused of different from what sent Duke Cunningham to prison.

    545 PEOPLE
    By Charlie Reese, former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.

    "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.

    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 can not 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 , it's because they want them in IRAQ 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. THE PEOPLE!

    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!"
