Mayans and the cliff

December 22, 2012

CowboySorry folks but I have to take a walk on the dark side today. The benefits of living in civilization are wonderful, but it also means that one is exposed to many, many more talk show hosts. Today as I thoroughly enjoy the warm weather while I work around the yard I am listening to a lot more commentators than I am used to. With all this said, like the man from a movie I can’t quite remember the name of, I’m mad as hell and don’t want to take it anymore’!

Patriotism, honesty and faith were attributes of our founding fathers but these days our representatives in Washington are motivated by GREED, incompetence and immorality. Not that back when our nation was formed they did not have a taste for these present day foibles, they just did not let them direct there every action like they do today. I have given up on hoping for a return to our government following the constitution. It established clear lines for what the government was supposed to do for the American people. That wish is gone, because now the government has grown so big and is into so many things it would be impossible to return the basic intent of the constitution.

From the President to the Republicans and Democrats we get nothing but a huge shell game. They, I believe, are truly unable to do what is good for this country. They go back and forth blaming each other for not doing anything about this fiscal cliff. One side says we should tax the rich more but that will only be a tiny start if no spending cuts are enacted. On that note they have proposed a few hundred million dollars in cuts but when you add that to the increased tax you get maybe a weeks worth of money compared to what we spend on a daily basis. And a tax on the rich really? Every representative in Washington would be effected, not to mention all the financial supporters who fund their campaigns.

In a perfect world the solution is simple:
The government will follow the constitution LITERALLY
We can only have a balanced budget, spending must NEVER exceed what is taken in.
All elections are run without ANY advertising dealing with the campaign
All news reports can ONLY report FACTS not opinions
Politicians may never take any financial support and must live on their government salary
Every citizen must do there own research on the candidates during any elections

OK enough of the dark side, look at the bright side we all survived the Mayan end of the world

and the rant was probably caused by an overdose of talk radio

but then again I could always blame the heat……..
