I never intended to write about politics on my blog, but I can't ignore what is going on right now. I don't care if you like the president or you don't like him. I don't care if you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or whatever.....You have to be aware that we have managed to send the worst of the worst of us to Washington. Everyone talks about the need to reform our entitlement programs. The ultimate "entitlement" program is in Washington where members of the House and the Senate are tremendously overpaid for the amount of service they render. They have travel and personel/office budgets that are far more generous than necessary. After only one year of service they get 100% of their pay at retirement. Their children(already living the lives of the priviledged) don't have to repay their student loans. The list goes on and is constantly added to because we have loaded our government with leaches and scoundrels who spend our money like there is no end to it. Now, with all the problems we have, they have the gaul to accept a pay increase our president quietly signed into law for them. That's the "entitlement" that needs a 20% across the board cut. They also need a law that says a bill will cover only one item. That way they would have to put "Pork" on a bill by itself which they wouldn't dare pass.
I like the proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution that is circulating in the current emails..........Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the senators and/or representatives : and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the senators and/or representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.
Wouldn't that be great?
