Congressional Reform

Call To Action!

It will never be accomplished unless "WE" do something about it now, not later!! The only way that congress would ever vote for such a bill is for Americans to demand it to the point that our elected officials feel they have no choice. That means many Americans, which includes you, must push to get a bill written and persuade a majority to vote for it. Therefore, this must be distributed to every American who has a PC or mailbox….every American! Will you help, or are you just blowing smoke when you get upset with congress as they play partisan politics? Lets help bring about a "Change in Washington" that is more than just spoken words, a "Change" that Americans will be proud of, a "Change” that will benefit future generations. If something is not done, our children and grandchildren may not have a country like we had to grow up in. It doesn't matter what political party you like. This is what's best for EVERY AMERICAN!

Can Americans depend on you to distribute this and support it or will you make excuses as to why it will not work? I'm in what about you????

Congressional Reform Act of 2010

1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of these possible options: A. Two 6 year Senate terms, B. Six 2 year House terms, or C. One 6 year Senate term and three 2 year House terms.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

2. No Tenure / No Pension: A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system. Congress participates with the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

7. Congress must equally abide in all laws they impose on the American people. Law-makers proven to be law-breakers will immediately lose their positions.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/11. The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

If you agree with the above, pass it on to all in your address list, all your FB Friends, all your tweets, and mail to those who are technologically impaired!

Letter from the DCCC: Democratic Corrupt Cronies and Crooks?


I’m not sure why the DCCC decided that their best way to raise campaign money was through attacking Glenn Beck, but that is what they did. I received the following letter (in green) from the DCCC.


I am well aware of my convictions and beliefs, and sent this reply to the DCCC.

Carol --

Glenn Beck.

Just writing those two words side by side sends a cold chill up my spine. He's the guy that's been riling up all those tea partying, town hall hollering, Obama birth certificate denying fools on the right-wing.

I happen to be a tea-partying, town-hall-attending, Obama-past-records of all kinds questioning citizen who exercises my First Amendment rights. I also happen to watch Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. And I listen to Mark Levin, Neal Boortz and Rush Limbaugh. As much as I know the liberals would like for all American citizens to become their docile, obedient sheep, I am not. I do as Neal Boortz cautions us to do. I check out the stories I hear and see and find other points of view. I do as Glenn Beck advocates. I ask bold questions on Twitter and Facebook and my blog. I follow the White House, Obama, and most of the official democratic organizations on Twitter. I get official notices from such groups on Facebook. I am an intelligent, well-educated and wise American citizen who cared deeply for my liberties and the Constitution and who does not follow conservatives or liberals without great deliberation and consideration.

Last week I called him 'nuts' on television but I'm afraid all I did was give nuts a bad name.

Let’s take a close look at this man you call a “nut.” We don’t shout that Obama isn’t an American citizen, We just have to wonder why he doesn’t put up either a birth certificate or Passport or school scholarship records to shut this controversy down. If Van Jones wasn’t a Communist or a “truther,” why didn’t the President back his appointee and keep him on? If the “snitch” email to the White House hadn’t been unconstitutional and unethical, why was it removed? If the lesson plans from the US Department of Education wasn’t meant to indoctrinate, why were they changed? If Yosi Sergant wasn’t acting unethically to use NEA funds to solicit propaganda and/or campaign artwork, why was he removed from his position? If Mark Lloyd isn’t a radical, why does he praise Chavez? If Anita Dunn isn’t a radical, why does she praise Mao? If Kevin Jennings isn’t immoral, vile, and perverted why would he support pedophilia? If ACORN wasn’t a corrupt organization with questionable fiscal activity, why did the IRS, the Census Bureau and Congress disassociate from them so quickly? Glenn Beck isn’t nuts. Our president is CRAZY for thinking that we wouldn’t notice that the appointees to his shadow government that writes policy and circumvents the Constitution is trying to “nudge” us (ala Sunstein) towards socialism.

I wish I could repeat some of the other names that our great DCCC supporters had for Beck in those petitions you signed, but we have to keep these e-mails G-rated.

First, I didn’t sign your petitions. I merely subscribe to your services so that I can “know my enemy.” And, were the names your great DCCC supporters had for Beck anything like: “un-American,” “anti-American,” “swastika-wearing,” “racists,” “Astroturf,” “thugs,” or, to quote you, “tea partying, town hall hollering, Obama birth certificate denying fools on the right-wing?”

Obama himself was the first person during the time of his administration to play the “race card” when he wrongly accused Cambridge police for racial profiling. Nancy Pelosi was the first person during this administration to refer to Nazis when she falsely accused Americans who were exercising their rights by questioning their elected representatives of wearing swastikas. Not a single picture could be produced that day of a single attendee wearing a swastika or carrying a Hitler or Joker sign. After her comment, however, (and perhaps thanks to her suggestion) the signs and symbols were evident the next day. The SEIU were the “thugs” at these meetings that beat up un-armed, well-meaning, peacefully assembling citizens. Perhaps our President and Speaker of the House doesn’t believe that a truly grass-roots movement is possible, since they are so used to funding and orchestrating SEIU , ACORN, children in the crowd, and fake doctors in distributed lab coats to rally for their causes. Some people rally because they believe in right. Some people march because they believe in justice. Some people question with boldness because it is their DUTY as a citizen in a Republic where the government is “of the people.”

Thank God we have committed supporters like you who defend President Obama from the attacks by Glenn Beck and his crazy ilk. And since you have the President's back, I wanted to make sure you don't miss out on your chance to join President Obama for dinner later this month.

Thank God you have informed citizens in America, who read and listen and pay attention to what is going on in DC. We wish it was an easier task. We wish the President would actually keep at least ONE of his promises and give us a transparent government. Nancy Pelosi also vowed to conduct House business in an unprecedented, transparent way. But, not only is debate not on CSPAN, it is behind closed doors. Not only are bills not online for our perusal, but they are voted on before our Congressmen read them, before they are put into legislative language and before they can be adequately scored in their final form by the Congressional Budget Office. Not only did Pelosi push for a pre-mature vote on Cap and Trade, but she offered “pork” to those few she needed to change their votes, and they caved (we hope with a sense of severe shame). Not only have Congressmen admitted that they don’t have time to read the bills, but they voted against a recommendation to wait 72 hours for a vote so that they would have time!

Contribute $5, $10 or more today and you and a guest will be automatically entered for a chance to win dinner with President Obama in Miami, Florida on October 26. Your hotel, airfare, and tickets are all included.

I’ll pass on your generous offer to send you money and “gamble” on a chance to have dinner with the President. I need that $5 to help feed my family. Vegetables are increasing in price since you favor the environment over the people that live in it. Tax increases, the failed economy and supporting your ever-growing federal government with my money are making it more difficult to put food on my own table. I doubt that you are going to work very hard to fix that, even though a vast majority of our citizens believe that the economy, NOT healthcare, should be “job one” for the government. We know that you all hope to completely wreck the economy so that you can then take over and provide for us as a truly socialist society. We’ll fight that. We’ll “holler” louder than you can imagine.

With media cheerleaders like Glenn Beck egging on the Sarah Palin-Michele Bachmann crowd of wing-nuts in the GOP spreading bizarre conspiracy theories about government death panels, FEMA concentration camps and the like, we need your support more than ever.

Once again, you’re hypocrisy is showing. NEVER let us see another criticism of a Tea Party sign after all of the names you have hurled at us in this one letter. “Wing-nuts?” It was our President himself that told Jane Sturm that her aging mother wouldn’t deserve expensive medical treatment when she could be given a pill to keep her comfortable until she died. And, it is a well-known fact that with a simple executive order, martial law can be forced upon us and FEMA can be given the power to incarcerate citizens. Is that as abusive as sending poor people miles away from the University of Chicago Hospital’s emergency room to receive care in a small neighborhood clinic just because you don’t have insurance? Michelle Obama got rich doing this. (The President never mentions Dontae Adams when he gives personal stories about poor health care in America. Dontae had his lip bitten off by a pit bull and was given Tylenol, a Band-Aid, and instructions to go to another clinic ala Michelle Obama’s Health Care Initiative.)

President Obama and the Democratic Party are fighting for our future and the commitment of Democrats like you is the key ingredient to our success.

So, make a contribution of $5, $10 or more today. And, when you do, you and a guest will be automatically entered for a chance to win dinner with President Obama in Miami, Florida on October 26. Your hotel, airfare, and tickets are all included.

Your contribution will be put to work fighting for the change you and I voted for last November. Thank you for your generous support.

I didn’t vote for him then. I won’t vote for him in the future.

Helping Out, Bailing Out or Buying Off the Seniors?


Since the cost of living hasn’t gone up, there will be no increase in Social Security amounts for the nation’s senior citizens and disabled. The Obama administration is considering sending each of them a “stimulus” check for $250, at a cost to the nation of $13 billion.

I’m wondering if that $13 billion price tag to the nation is worth the benefits that $250 will glean. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not objecting to helping out people who have seen the benefits of a long life of work and contribution to the Social Security system disappear to past thieves in Congress. I’m just wondering if that little bit of money will really make a difference in the quality of their lives!

A quick search for goods and services showed me that $250 will buy or do ONE of the following:

2 suits at JC Penney

1 skirt, 1 pants, 1 shirt, and a boss belt at JCrew

1 month of groceries, IF you live alone without pets and don’t need laundry supplies

1 swivel bar stool

1 pound puppy and crate, but no vet care or Puppy Chow

1 well check up at the doctor. (Get this while we still have a good supply of them!)

1 one-way drive from Atlanta to Salt Lake City (w/o food or hotel)

50 trips across town if you live in Birmingham or a city of that size

Dinner for two at Per Se in NYC (cab fare and tip not included)

½ of a mortgage or rent payment

2 cartons of cigarettes

5 weeks of nightly toddies at home for 2

4 trips to the hairdresser

2 new tires for the car

1 airline ticket across country IF you don’t bring luggage or a coat

5 decent Christmas/birthday gifts (2 if you are buying for a teenager)

$13 interest if you put the money in a savings account


What it REALLY buys, or at least what the Democrats are hoping for, is votes in the upcoming election. They are hoping our seniors will remember the check and not be aware, yet, of the drastic cuts that will be coming in their Medicare.

Anita Dunn: Communist Witch Leading the Witch Hunt?


Anita Dunn and the White House have pledged to push back and stop news stories that are either inaccurate or unflattering. She has said that, “Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party. And it is not ideological.” Furthermore, she said, “let's not pretend they're a news organization like CNN is."

Obviously, her stance ruffled some feathers. It is one thing to fight inaccuracies in the news, it is something altogether different to fight unflattering references. (The WASHINGTON POST ran a very flattering fluff piece on Ms. Dunn today, by the way, in the Style Section.)

She was also exposed by Glenn Beck today for a speech she made to high school students in which she praised her “two favorite political philosophers,” Mao Zedong (Tse-tung) and Mother Teresa. This statement raises serious questions!


First of all, why is she calling Mother Teresa a “political philosopher,” and why would she, a liberal, favor her? Mother Teresa was a humble servant of God who spoke against abortion, even for the poverty-stricken women to whom she dedicated her life in Calcutta.

Mao, on the other hand, was a political philosopher of the vilest nature. He founded the People’s Republic of China, but his process for doing so included genocide and starvation, the result of which was at least 48 million dead at his hand or because of his “philosophies.”

So, again, we have to ask, “Why?” Why does Obama constantly surround himself with people who admire the very people who would be our enemies? Why does he surround himself with Communist-loving and Marxist-thinking advisors that bring a radical Socialist agenda to the table for America?

Hopefully, with these revelations, we will soon sing, “Ding dong, the Witch is Dead!"

Volunteers "Forced" into Service?


Most of the major networks are planning a barrage of advertising and show content during the third full week in October to push for one of President Obama’s community organizing schemes, public service. I know there is nothing inherently wrong with public service and volunteerism. However, I know the protests over this will be about the same, if not worse, than Obama’s plan to speak to the nation’s school children. You will either hear about or be a part of yet another national outcry. Why would there be any objection to volunteer work to help others? Why would anyone object to television commercials that encourage that?


There is a myriad of “reasons,” most of which liberals will just scream are “excuses,” and most of them have nothing to do with public service.

First, it’s the idea of control. This White House is getting too intrusive into the daily lives of Americans. The Czars and advisors, especially those environmentalists who seem to hate the fact that the earth is populated with humans, want to force us into electric cars (that need burning coal to recharge), give up farmland in favor of bait fish (farmland that could support wind or solar farms instead of people and vegetables), and even take away our plush toilet paper and force more expensive, more energy-consumptive, rough and non-absorptive paper to chap our buns to save the old growth trees (in a country with more trees than we had 100 years ago).

Second, there is the idea of indoctrination. On the heels of hearing school children singing the praises of Barrack Hussein Obama instead of America (a trend that surfaces in almost every speech that the President himself gives, particularly before foreign audiences), people will be further enraged. On the heels of watching Aston Kutcher and Demi Moore “pledge allegiance” to Obama and the tatted thug-looking Chili Pepper kiss himself in praise of Obama, people will resist. The “school house stand” of conservatives was not about a speech, it was about the message that their children would be asked to praise the MAN in the same way that the National Endowments of the Arts, using tax money, has been recruiting artists to glorify the MAN. Not the office. Not the country. The MAN.

Third, there is the idea of unholy betrayal. There was the disappointment that the President did not honor the National Day of Prayer, but did honor the Red Chinese anniversary and hosted Muslim prayer in our nation’s capital. There was the dismay that the President painted a house on 9-11, a day when the names of the dead were being called out and honored in prayer, while he has embraced the sworn enemies that were supportive of that very holocaust. There is the criticism that he sat for years to listen to a minister preach, “God Damn America,” and then appointed a pedophilic School Safety Czar who said, “F—K God!”

Fourth, there is the idea that our administration does not honor the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. The White House acts to stomp out the First Amendment. They tried to stop e-mailers and bloggers with their “snitch” and “flag” mail. They tried to commandeer the computers of people logging onto “clunker” sites. They are collecting data on everyone who taps into any social network connected to the White House, including those that exercise their right to write to the President of the United States. They have threatened to eliminate conservative talk radio and are now beginning a witch hunt to quiet and denigrate Fox News because that station calls them out on almost every issue that has been listed on this page.

And last, there is the idea that Obama’s “fundamental change for America” equates to producing a socialist nation that will adopt a declaration of “dependence.” We know now that he ran for office with the intent and purpose of destroying our liberties to provide us with the security of a “nanny nation” that can “better” make decisions for us. We know now of how corrupt several of the community organizing groups with which he worked were, which is why very few trusted that the Olympics in Chicago wouldn’t become but another slush fund for the elite. We know now that they want to redistribute the wealth by letting the powerful make every decision over what resources we will have any access to as they control all of the purse strings. We know now how all too many of the people around our President, put there at his request, are Communists, Marxists, Socialists and radicals with beliefs that border on zoophilia, eugenics, euthanasia, and social engineering.

Yes, there will be an outcry over network programming next week. There will be a boycott. But, it won’t be about volunteer service. These people are already involved in Boys and Girl Scouts. They are already teaching Sunday School classes and helping with Vacation Bible School. They are already pitching in at senior centers, driving for Meals on Wheels or serving mission meals , contributing to charities, and lending a hand to neighbors. They are already building habitats for humanity, planting and maintaining inner-city gardens and green spaces, and guiding tours in museums, parks and public landmarks. They are already collecting in their neighborhoods for The March of Dimes, opening their homes to people and animals in need of care, cleaning their adopted mile of highway or waterway and contributing their time and talents to enrich the lives of others. These are the people who don’t need to be, or want to be, indoctrinated into doing or believing anything other than goodness and mercy, freedom and liberty. And they will unite when they think their beliefs are in jeopardy.

If you don’t see this next week, you’ll see it next November.
