For starters, the esteemed Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has stated for the record, that people like you and me are not voicing our own opinions but are instead paid hacks. And oh, by the way, that the protesters who are out there speaking out against Obamacare are, get this.... carrying "swastikas and things like that to a town hall meeting..." Tell a lie often enough and loud enough, right?
Next up, the statists running the Country (into the ground, I might add...) have ordered 3 brand spanking new top of the line executive jets for them to travel around the world in. And what makes it worse, they took the money out of the Defense Department's budget to the tune of nearly $200 million.
Let's think about that for a moment, shall we? The same people who criticized auto execs flying corporate jets to Washington are the same arrogant bastards who are spending almost $200 million of OUR money to ferry their pompous asses around the world. First off, I could care less what some corporate CEO (or anyone else for that matter) does with their own money. If they want to fly on their own aircraft, drive their own car, or hitchhike across the country, I don't give a damn.
Congress, however, isn't spending their own money (or their own company's money). They are spending OUR money. And frankly, I believe if they had to take a Greyhound bus home to visit their constituents instead of jet setting across the globe, we'd all be a lot better off. Apparently, however, Speaker Pelosi and her statist colleagues believe what Napoleon the pig so eloquently stated: “All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal."
And finally, some better news. Senator Cornyn has been on fire the past few days, taking the attack to the statist thugs running our country. On Monday, he released a statement criticizing the so called "Great Lakes Gitmo".
“The terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay were sent there for a reason; they hate America and dream of killing innocent Americans. Needlessly spending millions of taxpayer dollars on a ‘Great Lakes GITMO’ makes no sense and serves no purpose, other than to pander to the most extreme within the President’s party. We are a compassionate and civilized nation, but it is the duty of those in public office to ensure the safety and security of our citizens, first and foremost. That is why these dangerous individuals belong at GITMO and not on U.S. soil.
“I implore the President to keep that in mind and immediately stop throwing good taxpayer dollars after bad policy ideas. If he is looking for a creative way to spend money, I respectfully suggest leaving GITMO open and using the millions of dollars in ‘savings’ to pay down the monumental deficit he has racked up since taking office in January.”And then today, in response to the White House's request to turn in your friends and neighbors if one suspects something... fishy (and *they* have the gall to call US Nazis?) Senator Cornyn stated:
“I am not aware of any precedent for a President asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White House for pure political speech that is deemed ‘fishy’ or otherwise inimical to the White House’s political interests,”
“I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward emails critical of his policies to the White House. I suspect that you would have been leading the charge in condemning such a program -- and I would have been at your side denouncing such heavy-handed government action.”
