LMSA – Be PROUD and be LOUD

DON BOBBITT

Frog_01-1

A commentary on how both parties in Congress are working together to distract the public into believing that the reduction of benefits for Retirees, Seniors and Baby Boomers is necessary to reduce the federal deficit.

This is their preference rather than cutting their other favorite Pork Barrel programs, or God forbid, their own bloated benefit programs.

Sunday Morning Politics - Who is looking Out for ME?

Congresional Representatives or LEMMINGS

LEMMINGS or REPRESENTATIVES of the PEOPLE?

That’s my question.

AS I continue to get up every morning and check the latest news, the #1 topic is the National Budget.

Oh, and the FISCAL CLIFF!

The latest is that all of our brilliant representatives and even our newly elected leader are just going to “Jump off the Cliff Together” and “Fix the problem next year”

I’m not going to justify this stupidity with any scathing comments or boiling outrage.
Rather, I thought I would look up the famous RODENT called the LEMMING!

It seems that the Lemming is an animal that can be closely compared with our Leaders in Washington. Here are some good comparisons that I thought you might like.

1- Lemmings suffer from over-population regularly.
—–We have way too many people working in Washington, sucking off of the Federal Tit, so to speak whose jobs often depend on their building their own bureaucratic empires.
2- Lemmings are LONERS until they have outgrown their habitat,then they come together to relocate.
—– Our Congressmen would rather be on the multitude of TV shows than work in their offices to solve problems.
3- Lemmings are RODENTS.
—– Our supposed representatives are RATS at heart considering that they don’t care about the common man anymore and would rather wreck our struggling economy than work together and fix the problems.
4- Although Lemmings can swim, they will jump in-mass into water that is too deep and too wide for them to survive,.\—– Our Congressional houses are now run by special interest groups who really don’t care if they lose their jobs, so long as they maintain their stands as defind by their wealthy campaign contributors.

SO, lets just admit to ourselves that we are presently led by the LEMMINGS OF CONGRESS. There are left-handed Lemmings and there are right-handed lemmings.
AND their little whiskers are twitching and they are rubbing their little paws together as they keep watching the horizon for a sign to run for the closest CLIFF, FISCAL or whatever.

Nuff Said!

Just Thinkin’ #5, the Fiscal Cliff, AGAIN!

I was Just thinking, again!

I know, but it is’s a bad Habit that I just can’t shake.

I glanced up at the News on TV. You know that canned stuff putout to entertain us, but at the same time to not upset us too much?

Well, it looks like even the media is fed up with our elected officials in Washinston.

You see, someone, I don’tknow who, but someone, showed them where even they would be paying more taxes starting on Jan.1 if our Senators and Representatives do not get off of teir pompous Ass’ and come to some kind of agreement for our government to have a budget to operate on.

Yep, The Fools are all standing there, in front of the cameras, pointing their manicured fingers at each other, like pouting children.

You and Me? Well, we get to sit here and watch in wonder at our supposed leaders refuse to lead!

Like I said; Just thinkin!

The Republican Convention in Tampa and our Tax Dollars used

The Republican National Convention is to be held in Tampa Florida, shortly, and the article that I read in the local paper included these interesting numbers for us all to consider.

1- The Federal Government (that means us!) is paying $50-MILLION dollars for Convention Security.  Now that’s a lot of money, but even worse, you must remember that each party will receive the exact same amount of moneys from the Federal government for the security of all of those drunken privileged few that get to attend these conventions.

2- The article also mentioned that the Federal Elections Committee is providing $18.2-MILLION Dollars to the RNC’s Committee on Arrangements to “make Mitt Romney look good” What does that mean? These funds will come from those of us that allowed the federal government to take $3.00 from each of us  on our tax documentation.

Combine all of the Federal Funds involved and you get $136-MILLION in TAXPAYER Dollars for these political parties to, and I quote; “watch people wearing stupid hats and see a lot of balloons drop.”

As the article says.

IS IT ANY WONDER THAT WE ARE $15-TRILLION dollars in DEBT?

The Congressional Super Committee – What a Joke!

Yes, What a Joke.
When cowards get together and need a way to cover their A**, especially political cowards, they form a Committee.

Then the Committee can meet, behind closed door of course, and just DO NOTHING.

Well, it looks like the fools in Washington have done it again.

They are already admitting that they have no agreement and expect none on the Budget fiasco, so “don’t blame them!”

Don’t blame them for what, you might say?

Well,don’t blame them for the automatic changes that will devastate our Social Security and Medicare systems in America, and go into effect, in 2013.

THEY didn’t do it to all of us!

Nope it was done by Congress a few months ago when they passed their TEMPORARY bailout.
Get ready people, Here it comes!
