A brief message to Congress...

I am very dissapointed in all of the Republican congressmen and women who today had their votes bought with polictical capital. They have abandoned their constituents' clearly expressed desires and opinions and set our nation up for an even greater credit crisis down the road.

I am not even as upset by the yes vote today as I am at how easy it was for the Senate to buy the necessary votes from the House Republicans by waving the right amount of bacon in front of their fat greedy little faces.

I REALLY hope some of these people pay for this error in judgment by being elected out of their respective offices. Representative Democracy has only ONE feasible recourse for a rogue representative and that is to replace them at the end of their term. Now even if that happens of course it will be pointless to replace a lizard with another lizard (although it will feel good to see the first lizard leave and wish he'd listened better to his voters). We need a real change and that will not happen with either of the current two primary candidates. If you want to really see change... you have to vote for it!!!

Preach it!

You're right - we have put our feet in wet concrete and with this vote is has begun to set. We're in for a heap of trouble when the bureaucrats in the White House hit the rotating door and the unknowns step into these "money power" positions. It's a scary day.

Vote conviction! Vote revolution! Vote Baldwin!

Alec Baldwin?

Baldwin... Chuck Baldwin.

And he likes his martinis shaken, not stirred.

"waving the right amount of bacon in front of their fat greedy little faces"

Instantly conjures up this old Harrison composition from the white album:

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.

In their styes with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking.

Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon!

Now me and Harrison would probably have disagreed deeply on capitalism and all that, but still, rather amusing!
