My dear! The few posts of yours I have deleted had to do with comments you made which could get you into trouble (construed as threats) or which draw attention to yourself as one who packs. I started out as a criminal defense lawyer - and I protect my flock. Hugs!
I agree with you, Phil. We live in truly scary times....the first time in my life where I felt the USA is in real danger. Not from without, but from within. Our own government has become an enemy of the people.
The only thing, short of civil violent revolt, we can do to have any affect is to cut off their blood supply. TAXES. So if we all quietly, legally increase our dependents to 100, we will cut them off. They will panic and perhaps even start listening.
Thank you for your service to our country, Phil. Is it still "our country" or not?
Lets work together to throw all the clowns out. We need to find leaders that will say it like it is, say what you mean and mean what you say. No more Political Correctness crap. I would do a complete audit on the Federal Government, State Government down to the Municipalities. Then take a chain saw and get rid of trillions of dollars of waste. Cut everywhere, especially the salaries, benefits of government workers, management first. I am sick and tired of hearing about layoffs of the $9 an hour worker, while keeping the 150K Managers salary, perks and benefits the same. Managers who dont produce need big cuts, job cuts, pensions and salaries. Everything needs to be justified. People at the top need a haircut, big time.
The lies from both sides of the parties is staggering. I hate to say, neither party (RINO or Progressive) gives a hoot about waste and fraud in Government. There is not one man among them who will step forward to hold the criminals in government accountable. I have asked Congressman to put a stop to retaliation in Aerospace. That was years ago. My Repub Congressman told me 4 years ago that he is working on it. I have yet to hear back from him. He does not really care. Waste and Fraud in the trillions is no concern to Congress. Its a great talking point with both parties. The clown in office talks about getting rid of Waste and Fraud in Government. What a LIE. He does not care, no one does. There is always a bucket of money to pay for overruns or just tax more. That is the out. Government and Aerospace are one. Aerospace wants cost high for higher profits. More they spend the more they make, the higher the proposal value the next time for future contracts. Its a scam on the American Taxpayer and not a sole in Congress, President, taxpayer cares. Those of us with ethics and integrity get stepped on like ants. Governments answer to Waste and Fraud, "We know this happens all the time" and my favorite "There are more of them then there are of us".
Waste and Fraud is tolerated because no one wants to Rock the Boat. Look the other way, let it go, its someone elses job. Let the messenger pay the price for speaking out. The environment knows that if you challenge anything in Aerospace, your out on the street. Government protects Aerospace right to overrun programs, late deliveries, mischarging contracts and overbillings. The Government does not care. Why should they? No accountability for non job performance.
Hi Phil, I saw your comment about John Bolton. I have a great deal of respect for him. He would definitely follow the Constitution and look out for our country. I did not want to jump in to the discussion at that point where I saw your comment, due to the belligerant moron who was jumping all over your comment, so I decided to talk to you here instead.
Thank you, Phil! One of the great minds of history, Plato, in his endless search for truth and logic would be a welcome presence in the halls of government in these united states of America! (Before lawyers took over government and made govenment a corporation, "united" and "states" were not capitalized, merely a statement made in truth!
I learned this fact recently and the pompous character of present day government stuck in my throat like an irritating husk of popped corn, every time i saw it presented as the replacement of original intent! The capitalization of the word "I" feels all too pompous also, but serves as a reminder that when allowed to get too big "I" get me into more trouble than i am able to measure up to in resolution of the trouble caused!
The greatest minds were disciplined to focus on things unselfish, which is the antithesis of today's thought. I am fighting the tendency to march to the beat of self-centeredness, and reading about our founding fathers and other significant historical figures reminds me to focus on the goal of mankind arriving at a common good-which i now think begins within my own thoughts.
This freedom is a much greater responsibility than expected! But the journey comes with friends who gladly offer encouragment. I am grateful for yours and I thank You, Phil.
Will you please help us stop Shariah law and Shariah finance in America? Go to our website at ACT! for America and join a chapter near you or start one. Have you read how Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is trying to stop our anti-Shariah law in Oklahoma? You cannot believe in the Constitution and Shariah law at the same time. They do not mix! Our Constitution must be followed, especially Article I Section 8.
Phil dear! The powers that be will kick you off TPN for your last post. I do not want you kicked off. SO, I'm removing your post before they see it. Keep your eyes open and keep your cool. It may be that this can be handled relatively peacefully.
Hi Phil sorry never replied to your comment, don't check this very often.
Went down the March on th 11th of Sept. with two buses from Mass. We are doing all we can up here, very active tea partys popping up all over the place. We are all working hard to get some of these candidates up here elected! Make sure you call Senators on the Dream Act and the New Community Act, Dodd has come up with. More control over our lives and more of a path to Socialism. Stay awake,.. since we now longer have a media that reports on the truth,it is our job to wake up America. Yours in Liberty..Kelly
What's up with the people in Arizona? They deserve what they get. McCain spent 40 million to his opponents 2 million. McCain will tell you what he thinks you want to hear but after he gets in office he will stab them in the back. It was just three years ago he was for amnesty. How soon people forget. Dam people he's only been there 25 years and is part of the problem in Washington. Now were stuck with him for 6 more years. Unless people vote Democrat in November. I fear people of Arizona will come to regret there vote yesterday. He doesn't take earmarks so tell me what he's done for Arizona. I'm so disappointed in Ariz. I guess that's the American people for you. They can't stick together for nothing except food stamps. Wake up America.
Thanx Phil..We just have to have balance and perspective into unchartered waters of the obummer abyss...That's the toughest thing for us Tea Partiers that see our country torn apart by this evil empire..That's why Fred is the best leader out there that gives us alot of rope to express ourselves,,but is smart enough to rope us in if we go off the ranch too much..
