Nasty evil men used to stand in the shadows to do their dastardly deeds. They’d hide from the light of day and when caught they’d slither away. But it seems they all slithered to government.
They say all politics is local. That is true, but it’s also national and International and all of it is in dire need of fixing!
Nassau on Long Island we are facing a $45M year end deficit that all
sides claim is due to infighting. Republican county comptroller Mr. Maragos
blames the shortfall on the minority Democrats failing to work with the current
Does anyone sense a theme here?
Republican majority comptroller blames the Democratic minority for our woes on
Long Island while in
DC the Republican overall minority blames the Democratic majority for all the
woes in the country!
So which is it gentlemen?
Clearly the Republican Party from local and all the way up to Federal levels wants it both ways and they want it at the expense of those who can least afford to pay.
At least on LI we must stop the finger pointing and start the handshaking! Get it done or get gone!
Long Island they are
in command but continue to give away the store to the wealthy at the expense of
the middle class.
At state level we see so many examples of new laws that border on draconian evil as to make us wonder what century we are living in, let alone year.
|Women are just going to|
line up for this procedure!
Rulings such as mandatory vaginal probes and ultrasounds if women of

abortion or even seek out medical advice are proof of a scary
Florida, and many
other states we see legitimate citizens being denied their Constitutional right
to vote mainly because they are registered Democrats. Pennsylvania
Of course the Republican governors of those medieval States claim possible voter fraud as the reason to target so many voters who coincidentally just happen to be Democrats.
But the fact that the instance of that type of fraud has been negligible for decades, unless you count their actions does not seem to enter into any argument.
And finally we come to the center of the web of evil, DC.
The minority Republicans continue to filibuster anything that might help the middle class while allowing the wealthy to continue their exorbitant and obscene existence.
On any given day you can witness one or more Republican Senator or Congressman trot himself out to a microphone and bemoan how President Barack Hussein Obama is handing the country over to one or another group that is out to kill us all and eat our babies.
Of course one Senator at least had the decency to proclaim that he would not do the job for which his constituents elected him. In January 2009 and continually since then he promised to do only one thing for four years, work his enormous tail and set of jowls off to see to it that President Obama would not get a second term.
It did not matter to this hypocrite whether or not Mr. Obama could be the best President the country ever had, he just wanted him out!
And the height of hypocrisy is the current Republican candidate for President, or as the media must call him until the convention, the Presumptive Nominee.
Presumptive is a great word for Willard Mitt Romney since he presumes to know what’s good for
while doing the opposite. America
|Textiles, my old industry is now a|

Would it be good to send American jobs to
Would it be good to take away affordable healthcare for Americans?
Would it be good for
what’s left of our middle class into poverty level unemployed welfare
And then would it be good to take away what rights the former middle class citizens still have so that they cannot vote anymore?
Would it be good for

Well the answer to that last question is one of the driving forces behind Mitt’s desire to be
The microcosm of government that is
Long Island can show us a great deal about how politics
works or does not but you have to view the large stage, the show that is
Congress and the people who control it to get a real feel for how broken our
And when I say the people who control Congress I am of course NOT speaking about the actual Congressmen and women we elected but rather the billionaires and special interest lobbies behind the curtain.
The unelected overlords who don’t even bother to whisper their demands in the ears of our elected leaders anymore are in full control of the country.
And with every bill, every decree, every law that is passed by DC we see the inequity of their choices.
When farm subsidies are altered so that only the wealthiest of corporate farms can benefit or when food stamp programs are cut and the savings handed over to those wealthy concerns we see the ugly underbelly that is
Or when big oil dumps millions of life killing barrels of Black Death into the
Gulf of Mexico and gets
nary a slap on the hand we see the long arm of special interest and the lack of
power the individual has in his own life or livelihood.
They say in order to defeat corruption you must start by shining a light on it! We’re gonna need a bigger light!
