The Government can’t be expected to fix anything, if they are unwilling to fix what is wrong with the system that they have created to perpetuate the system that they wanted.

Instead of a choice of the Lesser of Two Evils, why can’t we Vote for
None of the Above.

Who else do you know that can get paid for doing nothing?,

get paid overtime for doing nothing?,

Not keeping any promises that they spread like fertilizer?

Won’t lose their pay unless they commit treason no matter how long they might be in jail for any other infractions?

Why are there Political Parties in the first place? Party On! Parties are not for getting any work done except Partying,

and for keeping out anyone who is not a Party Member from ever having an equal chance

What ever happened to standing on your own two feet, walking proudly, up holding your own merits, and rolling up your sleeves and getting a job done, one step at a time.

If any given member of a Party is not able to stand on its own, then all we really are left with is a chain composed of nothing but Weakest Links.

Cut the chains that bind them together and you have nothing but a lot of dead weights.

Right now we have 2 chains that can not pull together, that can not be trusted to work alone.

To blame one man for the lack inherent in the chains that he can not wield, that he has no power over to command, is beyond asinine.

Until each link is inspected, the rotten apples and diseased cut and separated from destroying those around them, flaws identified and fixed, you can not expect either chain to do a job, let alone a job that requires cooperation, rather than inherent corruption.

When you break it all down, and it should be broken down and inspected microscopically, the system is no longer a functional whole.

Each link is more focused on itself than the job it was elected to do.

More time, money and effort is expended by “our elected” government to become elected, and to become re elected than they spend actually doing a job.

Solution to this portion of the problem is simple.

No Reelection.
They limit the terms of the President don’t they?
Why not limits on those that supposedly do the work.

Something good might get done, so hey, break out the Filibuster! Compliance a problem, just push back the timing of the implementation and Pull its teeth by cutting funding. Send it to Committee!

Committees, Special Committees, Joint Committees, but what Commitment is actually Committed to commencing to get anything done, other than to Craft Bills, amend Riders, water down legislation to the point of evaporation of intentions, compromise by combinations that will scratch my back if I’ll support funding for projects that will make you look good to your constituents, and so on.

Take one thing at a time, address one issue at a time, let it stand on its own merits.

Oh, I forgot we can’t do that, it goes against the abilities of those weak links who are only able to stand under a party umbrella, hidden from the Rain of Reality. Platforms are built and constructed of piecemeal truths and flat out cardboard lies.

Instead of a choice of the Lesser of Two Evils, why can’t we Vote for
None of the Above.
When the Carrot and the Stick are held in the same hand the system is broken.

When there is no incentive to fix something it will not get fixed.

We are governed by those that are not held accountable in any meaningful way.

There is currently no way to make them be accountable.

The only Accountability they Count is in their Bank Accounts.

Off Shore and Swiss Bank Accounts, like the Cheese, leaves too many holes for them to hide their treasures, and there are no Cats but Fat Cats.

Even Mice once Belled the Cats.

So much for the Best Laid Plans.

We are the Mice, no longer Men.

Perhaps we the Greater of Evils, for “We the People” have long ago given up and allowed our Nation to be run not “For the People” nor “By the People”, and are now left only looking through the Peephole, locked out and away from any recourse but to
Weep for the People, we have sold our souls to the Company Store as they “Buy the People”.

Think about it PEOPLE!

Abraham Lincoln, in his Gettysburg Address, dared to recognize a fundamental truth:
“We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Think about it HARDER!

Even in his time, he recognized the need to work together.

Figure it out yet?>

Someone shot him, and he perished from this earth.

Lets go back a little farther with historic figures that cut wood, leave behind a rail splitter, and take up the cherry of a man, who couldn’t tell a lie.

By George! I think you know who I am referring to! It was a time when Hemp could be used in a Neck Tie Party, a Neck Stretcher, no Refer puns for the Intendants, just Hanging Participles, that should be left Dangling in the wind till they like Pheasants of the rich, rot through at the neck and fall, ready for the eating.

George chopped closer the Truth of the matter when he refused to become another King in the line of Georges, and instead gave up being President for Life.

He believed in the defense of the Constitution by stating his belief that the system of checks and balances and separation of powers within it are important means of preventing a single person or group from seizing control of the country, and advises the American people that if they believe it is necessary to modify the powers granted to the government through the Constitution it should be done through constitutional amendments instead of through force.

We do not have a single person or group that have seized control of our country, but two groups or parties, and they have effectively taken over and ruled out anyone else from getting a place on the dance card.

Check how you can get put on a ballot as something not an Elephant hiding in the peanut butter, or an Ass to Pin on the Tail. It isn’t easy, and it is costly.
And all those hoops and hooplah were created by the 2 party system.

Break the Parties, or never get into the Ball.

No Fairy Godmothers for us Cinderella’s, just the Mice making the gowns and Pumpkins to be pulled and filled, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, have their Cake and Eat it Too,
Its their Government Through and Threw.

What are we mice and shrews to do?

Why was this allowed to Happen?
Who Authorized it?

Speaking of Washington, DC I noticed at the top of the Alien Probe page is a link to your Sneaky Snake’s posting (THE MUSINGS OF A STORYTELLER BY ELEANOR LOIS TOMCZYK / how the hell did i end up here? Blog).

http://howthehelldidienduphere.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/sneaky-snakes-blog/

Sneaky Snake’s could well be a description of our Nation’s leaders or a lead in to the Alien Probe itself. After all a Colonoscopy is just a fancy name for a plumbers Roto-Rooter-ing. Plumbers and Politicians. One has Plumbers Crack, and the other you can’t trust to stay out of places like Watergate. Tape the Cracks, and Crack the Tapes! Plumbers will at least give you an estimate, and if you don’t get it fixed you might never be high and dry again.

Dirty Martini’s, a Politicians favorite. Muddy the waters, occlude the truth, and put it down as a business lunch.

What other profession can you name in which you don’t have to keep your promises?
If I break a promise I am held accountable and no one would trust me anymore.
What professionals are not held to any professional standards, don’t have a contract, and can spend all your time not doing anything productive, can even spend their time running for election for their next jobs while not doing the first one, and not have to worry about being fired?
If you or I spent all our time on the phones, or mailing out requests for money, kissed any strangers babies, we would be accused of scams, money laundering, and molestation.

Who doesn’t have to worry about Social Security or retirement because you will get your full pay, your spouse will get it if you die, can commit any crime without having to worry about losing those benefits, well of course except for Treason.

But of course its only Treason if you get caught. Why worry about that anyway, as you and your friends can make the laws, bend them and twist them, add on riders, and compromises, and so dilute anything actually meaningful into meaningless or just down right mean, if you know what I mean?

Can you even name the last time you ever saw, or heard, about Political CoOperation?

Think about it for a minute. And think about why there is a Two Party system in our Government. Its because they cooperated and established so many blocks and hoops to jump through that no other parties can join the party system.

“Its my Party, and I’ll Cry if I Want Two!” If you are not one of the Two, crying is about all anyone else can do. It’s all spilt Milk, and they own the Cash Cows.

Why can’t they do their Jobs, or even come up with a Balanced Budget? Is it because Justice is Blind? No, Justice has long been Blind, Bound and Gagged, and no longer has any place at the Table. It has joined the rest of us down on the cutting room floor, waiting for scraps.

The Romans had a similar system, they would eat and drink to excess. When they could no longer get any enjoyment, they would go into a room and cause self induced vomiting. This would allow them to return to the banquet, enjoy the fruits of others labors, over and over and over the teeth and through the gums, yum yum yum. The run off was collected and distributed to the slaves. It’s not like they actually had any time to digest the tasty food bits, and the alcohol probably killed off any really nasty bugs, so why not then get extra value out of it and make the slaves eat it? They had a word for it, Vomitorium.

Sounds pretty hideous doesn’t it? What exactly do we as tax-paying Americans get out of the system? Not nearly as much as those slaves did, it seems.

Why would politicians ever fix our system? Why did no one kill the Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs? As long as politicians benefit from the system, they have no incentive to change it.
No One Man, even a President, can make them change.

The only people in our society that are guaranteed meals and housing, which is what slaves were entitled to, are our Criminal Incarcerated Elements. And from what I understand, they get health care, such as Kidney transplants.

I ask you, if someone is on Death Row, why are we giving them any medical assistance, let alone any that is expensive life extending procedures? Why are they even being fed?

They are Prisoners! They have broken the law, and are supposed to be suffering some penalties, not getting 3 square a day, cable TV, free gym privileges.

Who ever said Crime doesn’t Pay!
Just ask any Professional Criminal.
Don’t even bother asking the Criminal Professionals!


   It should be noted, that this quote is not one, linear quote from Thomas Jefferson. It is a collection of (I believe 3) different quotes that are indeed, authentically from him.

 

I would like to remind the American public that our founding fathers were average, ordinary people who were tired of paying outrageous taxes, having little to no way to earn money and were being oppressed by those who robbed from the poor and gave to the rich so that they could get richer. It is also said that history repeats itself….

What is Secure about Social Security?


This is very appropriate in light of what is going on !!! Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only 30K over your 49 year working life, that’s close to $220,500. If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working (me) you’d have $892,919.98. If you took out only 3% per year, you would receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years, and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month. The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had. Entitlement, my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout !! Congressional benefits, aka free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements !!!!!! They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
