Water will eventually crack a stone drop by drop. CASH FOR CLUNKERS. What bothers me, does it bother you? I realize that this program is getting the car sales industry moving a little and I am sure for the industry and the dealers it is great. BUT, think about this please, use common sence and not unreasonable rational. Use your mind to RESEARCH this. FIRST - This is not the Government giving you a break. It is already the money of our children, that the GOVERNMENT borrowed and will have to be paid back with interest. TWO - Not only will many of us get deeper in debt, but what are some of us as people giving up? CHOICE. The Government took away our freedom of choice by just bribing us with money, and at the same time dictated to us what we must do with the borrowed money. This is a small drip right now, but when will it get larger, and the government will continue to tell you what to buy, by bribing WE THE PEOPLE with money that is not theirs.
Agreed. They have to finally realize who their real BOSSES are, Not the President, not the speaker of the House, or the leader of the Senate. Their real BOSS is WE THE PEOPLE. OHHH, it is not RAHM, the enforcer either. I still do not get all those pansies, what is he going to do to them, kill them if they do not like what he wants. He is not that stupid, he just scares them and they ALL CAVE IN. Until they find out he really can not do anything, they are wimps. What a bunch of woooses. (Remember Hitlers SS in the camps said they had to obey or they would be killed. Later at Nurenberg, official documents signed by the high staff said if anyone refused to do their duty at the death camps, re-assign them. The higharchy did not want attention brought to them at the top.) It is called implied intimidation. Some yelling, some screaming, and wrath of Obama on their heads, but at the end of the day, if anyone balks no real action.
Another item. My Mother taught me, Know who you are, what you are, and where you are going in life. If others want to come along for the ride, fine, if they do not to heck with them.
She also taught me: The human race is a herd specie, they want to be led without knowing they are being led. I add: Watch out who you follow to make sure you are not one of the last buffalo off the edge of the cliff. I also say: I am not a follower, the scenery SUCKS, I am not a leader, because, I might take a path that is not your.
THIS SCARES ME, DOES IT SCARE YOU? Politicians home for Town Hall Meetings and getting an ear full from the people. People mad and aren't going to take it anymore. Evidenced by Sibilious and Spector's FACES, was TOTAL DISGUST AT, WE THE PEOPLE. How dare the people act that way. All politicians go back to DC. Dems will go to meetings, power lunches, inspirational spkers, to make them forget about the PEOPLE and their anger. Told, DO NOT WORRY, the Pres and Rahm got your backs. Then, through RECONSILIATION, they will pass this DRACONIAN BILL, instead of a bi-patisan fix of the problem. They no longer listen to US via E-MAILS, PHONE CALLS, LETTERS, especially after the deluge during the immigration protest a while ago that changed their minds, IT WAS STATED CONGRESS WILL NEVER LET THAT HAPPEN AGAIN, and soon will not have TOWN HALL MEETINGS. GET SCARRED PEOPLE, we are not just near the slippery slope, we are on that slippery slope and have to get off of it, NOW.
Try the postal service, medicare, bidding for contracts, we could go on and on. The actual history of the Dept of Indian Affairs was in fact to help the Indians, if you read history, but got corrupted because opertunists saw the openings as with all govt programs. HAVE YOU READ THE BILL? If so DO YOU AGREE WITH ALL THAT IS IN IT? We all know the system needs fixing, but not by distorying it completely and letting govt get their greedy hands into it. My background so you know. USAF Intell Analyst. Worked at NSA three years, and aorund the world on intell bases. I KNOW HOW OUR GOVT REALLY WORKS, evidently you do not, or YOU WOULD BE UP IN ARMS ABOUT PARTS OF THIS BILL. TELL ME WHY IT HAS TO BE PASSED SO FAST AND NOW THE DEMS SAY THEY MIGHT USE RECONSILATION TO PASS IT? That, above all things if reason to worry. Oh S.S., once untouchable was put into gen fund, and Medicare are both on the verge of being broke. I am comparing GOVT and GOVT, really the same.
Thank You for your comments, they are much apprciated. I am 65, spent 20 years, USAF, 1963-83. Ten yrs Intelligence Field as an Analyst. That's where I learned to reseach before you open your mouth. Just because a person has an education, does not mean they have knowledge. I hear to many people forgetting one item that is most important for all and our survival as a people and nation. WE ARE ALL ONE PEOPLE. We are a unique nation of many tribes and from many nations. We are the most uniques nation in the world, and should be proud of that fact. Mistakes have been made and shame is shared by all. We have to be AMERICANS first and foremost. Do not be divided into gourps or parties by the POLITICIANS, or we will be a little people FOREVER. If we are mad at each other, then we IGNOR the REAL PROBLEM, the POLITICIANS.
Check out, "THE OUTER LIMITS. " "A new Life." WOW does that fit, the final sequence of enslaveing a people is to make them want it. Through FAITH and SERVICE. Interesting.
Very simple, those you are talking about have to follow the following, DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE OTHER DO UNTO YOU. That is a start. No way around that one, unless you cheat.
I am retired USAF Military 1963 - 83. I swore an oath to protect the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic., as have ALL Military members, and those in Congress. Wonder who is really, keeping their sworn OATHS?
By the way, those in CONGRESS, how does that pesky Constitution start? IT STARTS WITH THREE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORDS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, WE THE PEOPLE................. So Congress people it stands to reason that your oath is actually to protect the PEOPLE.
I watched part of Sabilious (spelling) and that other Old Politician as they were being grilled by THEIR BOSSES at a Town Hall Meeting. I watched their faces, nothing else, and WHAT WAS SO DISTURBING TO ME, WAS THE LOOK OF TOTAL DISGUST. It seemed as though in their minds they were saying, 'You weasly little people, say what you want, but you will take what we give you and like it."
What they will do. is pass something that we really do not want, and just figure that after it is passed we will just knuckle under, give up, and accept it. THEY ARE THE ONES CAUSING WE THE PEOPLE TO WANT THEM ALL VOTED OUT. We need new people in office that agree with the Constitution.. Like Beck said today and I have been saying for a long time. WE ARE AMERICANS FIRST. Not a color, party, seperate religions, etc. WE ARE AMERICANS, act as such.
