Let's Do It: Vote Out all the Incumbents

Hi ho there, congressmen! I foolishly expected
you to do your, was I ever disappointed.
But I DO have a strategy, which I will advertise
widely--vote out all the incumbents in 2012.

It's simple: why reward incompetence? The only
thing these nincompoops understand is a threat
to their power and position, simple enough to carry
out by voting in ANYBODY else.

After all, how could anybody else do a worse job?

Time to Execute, Mr. Executive

Yep, leadership is required--from the President.
If Congress can't get it together to raise the
debt ceiling, which should be a stand-alone
proposition, shorn of tax and spend considerations,
then HE should avail himself of the mechanism which
allows him to do so. What's he waiting for, Christmas?
If so, most of those serving in Congress and the White
House will be gone in 2012. Nothing like starvation
and other serious economic loss to galvanize the
population into political retribution.

Mr. Obama, haven't you heard of the saying,"just do it"?
Well, damn it, just DO IT. Save us from the double-dip,
from endangering the entire world economy. etc., etc.

With a stroke of your pen, just do it.

Politicians, Beware: 2012 Waits for You

The August 2nd debt ceiling deadline debacle rockets
ever closer. Solve it NOW, or see your legislative
careers end abruptly. Who will vote you back in office
if such a negative historic marker occurs, all just
because of politics? There IS enough money in this nation
to pay our damn outstanding debt, count on it. Why
should the super-rich remain untouched while everyone else
suffers? They're simply holding on to their kale, not
hiring, which would be the ONLY reason not to dun them
as they deserve. They made their fortunes here, let their
taxes reflect that. If this is the greatest country in the
world, let them contribute to it, not merely themselves.

If there IS waste, fraud and abuse, let that be exposed
and expunged, along with the massive incompetence which
ruins us by the hour. Both prongs of attack, raising revenues
and cutting any improvident spending, would resolve the debt
mess fairly quickly. But:

Lingering too long on extremist, ideologue positions while the
calendar marches on to August WILL have consequences.

To you.

Declare Your Independence from Ignorance

Shocking news: 24% of adult Americans are unsure
as to exactly when, and from whom, we declared our
independence. Recent polls describe the country's
woeful ignorance, a continuing embarrassment.
--The greatest country in the world? Maybe, maybe
not, but possibly the most ignorant. Santayana said
those ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it,
a caution it's wise to remember. While there's little
danger of Great Britain reasserting its authority
over the U.S., other dangers loom, most fueled by
careless attention to relevant facts.

Truth, Justice, the American Way, isn't that what
we're celebrating this Fourth of July? It's time,
however, for a new declaration: Independence from

Let's do it today, there's not a moment to lose.
