Congress House Of Republicans


 

 

Congress House Of Republicans have become like sheep with Grover Norquist, as their

shepherd.  When these republicans signed Grover’s pledge.  Of no new taxes.  Which he call, “Americans For Tax Reform.”  They , (the republicans), now represent Grover and not the people.  Grover said, “this pledge is the voice of the people.”  Grover is implying that his pledge is a part of the constitution.  What I say to Grover,  is not an elected official of the U.S. Government.  Therefore his pledge is irrelevant to the constitution.
I would also remind Grover and the republicans.  It would take a petition sign by 60% of all register voters in the states.  To be the voice of the people.  Therefore Grover is the voice of one shepherd with a flock of sheep, ( GOP Members of congress).  The voice of one doesn’t speak for the many.  The paper that this pledge is written on is as useless as toilet paper.

Grover’s pledge didn’t choose these republicans for congress, and he doesn’t pay their salaries.  It’s the people taxes that pay these republicans salaries.  These republicans want to cut spending on seniors, poor & hungry children, unemployed, under-employed, and veteran benefit.  These republicans need to start cutting their own salaries first.  With a 10% approval rating by the people.  If these republicans were working in the private sector they would be fired.  Since you are their boss and they are administrators for the people’s government.  You are their boss, and have the power to fire them at the ballot box.

These republicans have misquoted the constitution over and over.  By saying, “President Obama, is raising taxes.”  The constitution gave congress the power to raise or lower taxes.  Not the president.  These republicans have taken an oath to up hold and defend the constitution.  After the Affordable Health Act was passed in congress by the House and the Senate, sign into law by President Obama, and upheld by the Supreme Court as constitutional.  These republicans in the house have fought this law 50 times by passing a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act and it die in the senate.

These Republicans want to have control of all three branches of government.  They don’t approve of President Obama, as the Executive Branch of Government.  And they don’t approve of the Supreme Court, as the Judaical Branch of Government.  Republicans in congress are in the Legislative Branch of Government.  Their sole responsibility is law making as stated in the constitution.  They want to control of all three branches of government.  They had that in old U.S.S.R. One party rule.  Where only the elite the wealthy benefited.  Every one else was given propaganda.

The House Republicans have put on charade after charade on TV for the people.  I call this “Republican TV Court.” They are competing with Judge Judy, for TV time.  These House Republicans declare the Affordable Care Act is in their opinion is unconstitutional because the mandate is the largest tax increase in modern time, and they are going to repeal this law.  In essence this mandate is a penalty for those who choose to disobey this health care law. This penalty is collected under the IRS tax code.  Our constitution wasn’t written with the word penalty for a mandate.  For those of such narrow-mindedness.  This charade is a bridge to nowhere and, cost the tax payers 50 million dollars.  There was another charade by these republicans.  That President Obama, was involved with running assault weapons to Mexico.  This charade was called “Fast and Ferocious.”  This is a bridge to nowhere and cost the tax payers more money.

These republicans speak and, bury their heads in the sand.  “Not even the swiftest horse can over take the word once spoken.”  A lie told yesterday, is a lie today, and will be a lie tomorrow.  These charades by the republicans are illusions.  We don’t need actors in congress to put on a dog and pony show.  And we don’t need republicans to be lead by a shepherd, (Grover Norquist). What we need in congress are those that can think and, reason with a logical mind on their own in  Congress House Of Republicans.

Constitution And Democracy


Constitution and democracy. We live in a country where we, (the people) elect officials to govern for us. As citizens we do not handle the affairs of government. To make our wishes known in our government. We elect representatives, who speak and act for us.

As citizens it is important that we need to know how our federal government gets its power. How it is set up to operate honestly and effectively for all the citizens of the United States. We can find this information in our U.S. Constitution. It is a contract,(written agreement in -1789) between the government and the citizens of the States.

More to the point, ours is a consent of the people. A government by the people with a written contract called a constitution. This document is only as good as we the people make it. If not enforced it become meaningless.

We as good citizens can make our constitution more effective, by being well-informed about what our representatives in government are doing. We can do this by taken an interest in and voting in all election. By writing letters expressing our opinions to our elected officials.

Also we can take court action…..what is call a test case, against any law that we feel is not constitutional. And by petitions, support by signatures of citizens who are for or against any action taken by our elected officials.

By seeing that our government operate in the interest of all people of the United States. We the people must accept this responsibility to remain a free people for our constitution enable us to have. We should read the Preamble. Which is the reason for writing the constitution.

Even in a democracy, everyone cannot be satisfied all the time. But our government     should be able to do the most good for most of the people most of the time. But we know that our government can’t always please everyone. Common sense tells us this would be an impossible task.

I would like to quote from the late John F. Kennedys, 1961 inauguration speech. Ask

Rush Limbaugh And Women


Rush Limbaugh And Women.  First I would like to commend Ms. Sandra Fluke, (a Georgetown Law student), courage for going before Congress and speaking about women health insurance plan to cover contraceptives for  all women. Every parent with a daughter should be outrage at Rush Limbaugh, usage of the words that describe women who use contraceptives. This is a lack of Rush’s character.  I see him as a frustrated old man who have lost his balance and stumble into the gutter. While trying to

Rush Limbaugh Cartoon by Ian D. Marsden of mar...

free him-self, fell into the sewer. And he is full of you know what….

Rush Limbaugh, choose words that you would only here in a pool hall or in one of those so call, gentlemen club. These are men acting badly. Those words are obscene, indecent, vulgar and rude. To characterize women who use contraception as prostitutes is an attack on women freedom of choice. I think all women should be able to choose when they want to bring a baby into the world.

That should be between her and her God. Not Rush Limbaugh, or the republican party. Without the availability of contraceptive there would be more teen pregnancies. More unwanted babies going into orphanage or foster care.

Todd Akin, a GOP member of congress, implied that rape is another form of conception. And a woman can shut down conception if it is a legitimate rape. Another GOP member said, “if a woman is raped and conception take place that is God plan.” Now we have GOP politicians speaking for GOD?  I would say, rape is another from of sex slavery.  Our constitution forbid slavery of all kinds. Rape should be re-classify as sex slavery. The republican platform assumes that the word, “rape” is some how a slap on a woman face. Rape is an assault on a woman body and her reproductive system.

Rape (mating) is a form of breeding.  That is what animals do to produce an offspring. Human women want to get married and raise a family. Human women shouldn’t be forced as breeders in our society.  A child conceived by force, (rape) may not be loved by the mother. She may even hate this child, because of the father rapist. This would be 18 years of punishment for her to raise this child. While the rapist would be free to rape again.  This is a violation of the Bill of Rights.  Amendment 10: Powers of the States and the people. All women are people too.

Rush Limbaugh, would sell out his own mother, for the republican party. Without contraceptive most women would be capable of producing 10 – 15 children in their life time. I would like to remind Rush Limbaugh and these republicans. That we are a society of Human Beings and not animals. We can see that Rush Limbaugh, and the republicans think every women should be treated like animals. For any man who would condemn the very act that brought him into this world.  He shall be known as a disgrace to the human race.

And,doesn’t deserve to be a part of the human race. He should go forth and live among the wild beast. Then he can treat those women like animals. For all of you who don’t agree with Rush Limbaugh and republicans  views on women health issue. You should go to the ballot box and make your voice loud & clear. That you will not support any candidate with those views on women health issue. That you will vote for the person and not the party. When ever that party doesn’t represent you.

The Bill of Rights                                                                                                                                   AMENDMENT 10. POWERS OF THE STATES AND PEOPLE                                                    “Any power that are not the exclusive powers of the United States Government, or that are not specifically denied the state’s government by the constitution, are the power of the states, or of the people.”                                                                                                                      Women are people of the states.  To chose what is good for their own welfare.  When politicians restrict a woman personal freedom…..our constitution becomes meaningless. Our democracy is for all the people.

Rush Limbaugh said, in his closing statement. If the tax payers cover the cost of contraceptives for Ms. Sandra Fluke. He would like to watch her engage in sex on you-tube. That makes Rush Limbaugh a pervert.

Rush Limbaugh has become as mad as a junk yard dog foaming at the mouth with vulgar attacks on Ms. Sandra Fluke. It is time to put a muzzle on this mad dog before he bite someone else. Mad Dog! Mad Dog!  Who let this dog out? We need to have the FCC ( Federal Communications Commission), to revoke Rush’s Radio license, because he has slip beyond Human Decency on the public air ways. With fines of the radio station for violations of broadcast standards.

I will close with every women should have the right for romance and love in their lives. After all it is romance that brought every baby boy or girl into the world. Women are creators of life. Let no man take away what God have given. You can see that Rush Limbaugh And Women and republicans have place them self above God.

Health Care Battle


Health Care Battle has been a long time coming.  But the “Affordable Health Care Bill” was created and passed by the House and the Senate in congress. Sign into law by the president. Upheld by the supreme court as constitutional. This bill is now the law of the land. Why would the republicans want to repeal the bill that they passed? This is akin to a dog chasing its own tail. For the republicans to repeal this bill would be an exercise in futility.

They, (the republicans), feel this give President Barack Obama a victory over the republican party in the last election. And president Obama will become legendary as the only president to have a health care bill passed in his administration.  With Obama-care attached to this bill by the republicans in congress.   This goes back to President, Teddy Roosevelt, 100 years ago who tried to get a health care bill pass in his administration and fail. And  all other president have fail also.

They, (the republicans), have attacked this health care bill’s  mandate as a tax by the president. Our founding fathers didn’t insert the word mandate into the constitution just to satisfy those political pundits in 2012 for their political agenda.  This mandate is a penalty to be collected by the IRS as a tax required by the constitution.

Let me make this clear. This penalty is collected once per-individual. A tax is collected continuously per-individual. Don’t be fool by these political pundits that say this mandate is the largest tax in history. This mandate is a punishment for not obeying the Affordable Health Care law. I would like to say this about taxes as it applies to our constitution.

“SECTION 8. Power of congress”

“The ‘expressed’ powers (power listed in the constitution.)

“1. power to lay (raise) and collect taxes (money used to pay expense of government, duties, imports (taxes on imports), and excises (tax on the manufacture, sale, or use of goods within a country) for the purpose of national defense and general welfare of the United States, but all duties, imports, and excises must be uniform (the same) for all states.”

As you can see in our constitution only the members of congress can raise or lower taxes. When ever you hear a political pundits say the president is raising taxes. Just replace the word president with congress is raising taxes. Not this or any other president can raise taxes. The republicans are trying to re-write the constitution in their own image as a republican party government.

These GOP members have implied they want to take back their government.  No political party has every own the U.S. government.   Thomas Jefferson help create the constitution which became the supreme law of this nation.  It has always belong to the citizens of this great nation, (The U.S.A).

Constitutional government has two blessings: “1. It united the states as a single entity, (nation), setting the stage for strength and growth not possible under smaller semi-independent states, thus protecting us from tyranny abroad; 2. It stated the rights of the individual and the limitations of government, protecting us from tyranny at home.  The U.S. Constitution is flexible, amendable, durable, and open to judicial interpretation.”

Be wary of the GOP members who speak of taking back their government.  This is called…. a totalitarian government in which the political authority exercises absolute  and centralized control over all aspects of life.

These GOP members haven’t put forth a health care bill in the House of Representative.  The only policy that they have put forward in to shut down the government because of Obama Care.  This makes them self servicing for their personal agenda.  And that is to campaign against President Obama even though he is not running for any office.   These GOP members have turn their backs and walk away from the constitution and it’s people that they were elected to serve.  They have become delusional over President Obama  and can longer function as a governing body.  As U.S. citizens, you have the power to remove them from office at the ballot box.  By writing your grandmother or great-grandmother’s name on the ballot in place of those who speak of shutting down the government, because of Obama Care.

Republicans have fought the law, ( the supreme court) and the law has won. Why continue to fight the law? When there is nothing to be gain. This fight can only be in ones own mind. After all congress has taken an oath to defend the constitution. Not to fight the constitution. We didn’t choose members of congress to fight lost battles in their heads. “Our constitution is of the people, by the people and for the people.” As is the Affordable Health Care Bill.   We need, Health Care Battle to make sure the uninsured and under insure have health care in the U.S.A.

Republicans Blame Democrats


Republicans Blame Democrats.  Republicans say the private sector,(business), is not doing fine. But the private sector,(business), is doing fine. Together there are sitting on over a trillion dollars to invest into the economy by hiring more employees when ever congress pass a bill for the budget. It is the economy that is not doing as well. So it is congress that is holding the economy hostage for political gain.

Congress blame the President Obama for not submitting a bill for the budget. As the president is in the Executive Branch of government. No president has the power to write any bill as in the constitution. It is the constitution that gave congress that power. The president has said, “I would sign a budget bill that has passed in the Senate and the House.” It is over a year and no budget bill have reach the president desk from congress.

The republicans have blame the president for millions of unemployed under the Bush Administration from 2000-2008. Republicans have blame the president for not paying down the ten-year war debt in his three and half years in office. For this congress is kicking the can down the road. So that future generation will have to pay down this war debt at  higher interest rates. Republicans blame the president for not creating jobs. It is the private sector,(business), will hire when the congress pass a budget bill. Michelle Bachmann, a republican member of congress blame the president for hurricane Irene. Was this suppose to be a religious joke? Running for president is no joke, Michelle.

Republicans should think before speaking. If not they will end up with foot in month disease. We don’t need those in congress who are quick to blame others for their own lack of action as stated in the constitution. When one tells a lie and dozens repeat it as the truth.

Republicans have back Romney into the four corners. When he was Governor of Massachusetts. Saying the health care mandate was good because it made individuals responsible for their own health care. In the general election he is implying that is now a lie. What Romney said about women health issue, (abortion), was the truth in the primary. But in the general election implying that is now a lie. Romney said, he would repeal the dream act if it was passed once he was elected president. In the general election he is now stating  that is now a lie. What we have with Romney is credibility problems. When yesterday truths are now today lies.

Republicans Blame Republicans  is not a good government policy.

The CEO Romney


The CEO Romney  economy is base on the growth of businesses large and small. What is the CEO responsibilities to their company? The CEO is the, (Chief Executive Officer) of the company.  He has to make sure the company is on a positive growth trend year after year.

Although a CEO doesn’t have control of a down turn in the economy. But Wall Street is part of the blame for the CEO reaction.  You see the street give every large company an expectation of what each of these companies profit are to grow year after year. Wall Street is more concern about shareholders and investors. And not about those employees of these companies. The other part of the  blame is companies that make bad business  decisions, like AIG, the Real Estate Bubble, Big Banks, and J.P.Morgan just to name a few.

When a company fail to meet Wall Street expectation. The reaction of the CEO along with the CFO, (Chief Financial Officer) has to resurrect the company finance. By cutting their cost to make sure the company look profitable to venture capitalist and investors in their company.

The CEO will always cut the payroll at the bottom of the pay scale. They see these employees as expendable. In the last five years 20 million employees have been sacrificed to make capital gains for the CEO. Romney said, “I like to fire people.” Because he received a bonus for those laid off employees.

Why didn’t Romney, the CEO make cuts in the top payroll? And save some of those employees who had only one to two years before retiring. Greed makes a person heartless. What profit a man?  If he gain all that wealth and lose his soul.

Mitt Romney

The wealthy speak of trickle down economy to create jobs from his or her multimillion  dollar per year salary. How many nannies can they hire on their personal income in-house. Well we don’t have 20 million unemployed nannies.

Employees at the bottom of the pay scale are the foundation of all companies. They are the ones that produce a product or service to its customers. The CEO as an administrator   doesn’t give neither for its customers.

Lets take the CEO of Ford Motor Company for an example. He doesn’t produce any part of the car that a customer will buy. But when that customer buys a car. A large part of  the car price goes into a CEO salary. When every there’s a down turn in the economy. The CEO will lay-off assembly line workers which are the foundation of Ford Motor Company.

Ford Motor is the house that Henry Ford built with the CEO and top management as the roof and the assembly line workers as the foundation. When every there’s a leaky roof. Where large part of the  company profit are going through the roof.  The CEO will always want to repair the foundation.

The CEO Romney is not ready for the presidency of the U.S.A.

Constitutional Freedom


Constitutional Freedom Of The People.  The congress under FDR, order the issue of war bonds to help pay down the war debt during World War II.  The rich and wealthy at that time brought war bonds because of their pride in America, even after the attack on Pearl Harbor.   This is Constitutional Freedom for all the people.  This congress under President Obama’s Administration want to cut spending on Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, the poor and on the middle class to pay down this war debt.  Without an increase in revenue.  To help pay down this war debt after the attack on 9/11.  Where is that pride of the rich and the wealthy today?  No war bonds,  just money for supper-PAC.  This is more about campaigns, and not deficit reduction.

Members of congress need to get serious.  This ten-year war debt can’t be paid down in one administration.  After Eisenhower, was elected president.  It took five years after World War II was over to recover from that war debt.  This war on terrorism is on going for ten years, and will continue for years to come.  This war on terrorism there will be no peace treaty.  The only way we can declare victory is to prevent future attacks on the United States.  And that responsibility has been Presidency of Barack Obama, as the Commander-in Chief.

The sole responsibility of congress in the legislative branch of government.  And that is where and when our tax money is spent.  When and where to increase revenue in times of war, and most important create a budget every fiscal year So that we will not default on our government loans, and our domestic financial responsibility.  Without a budget our economy has stalled, because of congress  inaction.  Our businesses are waiting for congress to pass a budget.  So they can start hiring again.  With so many unemployed.  People are crying for more jobs. And our credit rating is down graded from AAA to AA.  Thinks to congress.  Their approval rating is the lowest in modern times.   Congress want to kick the can down the road to our children and their grandchildren children to pay down this budget deficit.

When Members of congress sign a pledge to support a special interest group.  They are not able to support all the  people as in the constitution.  It’s not a special interest group that elected these members into the office of congress.  There are members in congress who want to restrict women health issue base on their religious belief.  And add family value & religious policy to the constitution.   Our founding fathers never intended for members of congress to write morality policies into our constitution.   Family value should be implied in one’s home.   Religious belief should be implied in one’s place of worship.  The constitution was never intended to restrict one’s freedom of choice.

As Ronald Reagan said, “you can’t legislate morality.”  Those who have such a strong belief in their religion should seek office in their place of worship.  Those seeking office in government must be reminded this isn’t a Republican or Democratic  Government.  It’s  the United States GovernmentCongress must remember that, “ours is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”  With a true democracy.  We will have Constitutional Freedom Of The People
