Elected Officials have made it almost impossible to have respect for them.
The worst problem in the sewer is not the smell, it is that the sewer is full of turds; don’t expect much from our wonderful elected officials, it would appear many are also sitting at the table of an insiders’ game. When elected officials vote for legislation without reading the legislation We The People take a beating: N.A.F.T.A. (1400 pages); G.A.T.T. (22,000 pages); The Patriot Act; and now The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) (2450 pages). It is almost impossible to write law in a more confusing and convoluted method then what is written in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR’s). Because we refuse to wake-up, or learn from history, it looks like we will have to suffer the results.
Just some of the reasons why so many
politicians are looked upon with contempt.
Congress is watching out for you; they’ll watch your back
Many who have taken the Oath of Office for the U.S. Congress (Senate & House) abdicated their responsibility to the Constitution and took instead an oath to Grover Norquist:
I, _____, pledge to the taxpayers of the (____ district of the) state of ______ and to the American people that I will: ONE, oppose any and all efforts to increase marginal income tax rate for individuals and business; and TWO, oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.
Oath of Office for the United States Congress:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend
the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that
I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or
purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the
duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky was first elected to the Senate in 1984, at that time the National Debt was only $1.5 trillion; on Senator McConnell's watch the National Debt has increased over $19 trillion. Senator McConnell signed the Grover Norquist Pledge.
Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina was first elected the National Debt was $4.5 Trillion. The National Debt has increased over $16 trillion. Senator Graham signed the Norquest Pledge also.
When Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa was first elected in 1974 the National Debt was not yet a Trillion dollars; on Senator Grassleys's watch the National Debt has increased over $20.1 trillion.
Senator John McCain from Arizona started out in 1982 when the National Debt was $1.1 trillion and has been in office for $19.4 trillion of the debt. Senator McCain signed the Grover Norquist Pledge.
When Senators Feinstein and Murray were first elected in 1992 the National Debt was $4 Trillion; on Senator Feinstein's & Murray's watch the National Debt has increased over $16.5 trillion.
When Paul Ryan from Wisconsin, who also signed the Grover Norquist Pledge was first elected in 1998 the National Debt was $5.5 trillion. The National Debt has increased over $15 trillion on Paul Ryan's watch.
Wall Street Pays Bankers to Work in Government,
Makes you wonder how much the Banking Lobbyists had to spend in 2005 to buy off our Wonderful Elected Officials for this Loop-Hole (took a few years but it smells rank again).
Why is this being done? Because Law-enforcement agencies get to keep a share of whatever is forfeited. Law lets IRS seize accounts without filing criminal complaint
If only our elected Representatives, (House
& Senate) along with the Regulatory Agencies; which, went from ass kissing to brown nosing would stop and do
the right thing. (Yeah/Right)
For some reason our wonderful elected officials are surprised when We The People don’t trust the government; Violent criminal on federal payroll as informant. That this happened is unconscionable; that it continued is a testimony to the utter contempt that to many officials in high places have for We The People.
snitches lie and more innocent lives wrecked; again

The Rich & The Shameless got bailed out in 2008 by the people of the United States, made Billions, and are Suing for more; go figure. To bad The Political Elitist don't have time for We The Little People.
PROBLEM LOCATED it is in WASHINGTON D.C.
Nothing quite like sacrificing WE THE PEOPLE on the altar of GREED
Maybe the House and Senate Ethics Committees could do something useful for a change; not likely they are to busy kissing the Lobbyist ass also!
While our wonderful elected officials made stealing money from The Little People legal

The U.S. Comptroller General David Walker in 2003 tried to explain to the people that there was a severe problem on the horizon; Watchdog sounds deficit alarm, Ann McFeatters 2005 Top government auditor tells it like it is-bad, David Broder wrote in 1998 about Budget surplus then Budgetary scary tactics in October 2003, David Broder again in 2004 Congress' full-blown retreat from fiscal responsibility; Mortimer Zuckerman Editor in Chief U.S. News & World Report 2004; Kenneth Torp U.S. mortgages its Sovereignty 2004; Jon Talton June 2015 Changes in public policy could put a lid on executives’ excessive pay packages
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” – Thomas Jefferson
Fixing the finances of this country needs to become our first
priority. Nothing else will matter if our financial house is not put in order. Hopefully
while reading this, thoughtful consideration will be given to the fact that
your kids and grandkids are going to inherit the unintended consequences of
this mess. This is not just their problem, but yours and mine also. Social Security
has been used by your elected members of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate as a
slush fund; Over $5 Trillion has been “borrowed” from Social Security!
"It is to
be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government
to their own selfish purposes." Andrew Jackson
“The few who understand the system will either be so interested
in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no
opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people,
mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital
derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps
without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” The
Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.
The Death of the U.S. Dollar
“As a result of the war, corporations have now been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow... until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed.” -Abraham Lincoln
It is disgusting that the Federal Government
of The United States of America can not take care of so many American Veterans
but Gives Away Millions in Off-the-books cash delivered directly to President
Carved in stone (Roosevelt Memorial) in Washington D.C.
THEY (WHO) SEEK TO ESTABLISH SYSTEMS OF GOVERNMENT BASED ON THE
REGIMENTATION OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS BY A HANDFUL OF INDIVIDUAL RULERS… CALL THIS
A NEW ORDER.
IT IS NOT NEW AND IT IS NOT ORDER.
It is difficult to imagine someplace, somewhere, someone had a plan to fleece the people in such a manner and then implemented the plan; saddly, the NEW WORLD ORDER is staging a come-back.
If we could only get the
Elephants or Asses to explain this mess
in plain, simple, unembellished English.
To truly understand how bad the Elephants & Asses
rolled over for the Pimps on Wall Street, (To any elected official who did not prostitute
himself or herself to the Pimps of Wall Street I apologize.) my
recommendation is read the book: And Then the
Roof Caved In: How Wall Street’s Greed and Stupidity Brought Capitalism to Its
Knees, by David Faber and then watch
the documentary Inside Job, by Charles Ferguson;
at which point I hope that everyone will understand why it is no longer
Republicans & Democrats and Wall Street & our Elected Officials but
rather Elephants & Asses and Pimps & their prostitutes.]
To many citizens of the United States appear to be clueless as to what is written in their Constitution, but the loophole that is being exploited to wreck the United States comes straight out of the Constitution; it is paragraph 2 of Article VI. Most people do not realize, The Constitution of the United States of America including our bill of rights as originally written is only 6 pages; Did you know the North America Free Trade Agreement (the treaty NAFTA) is over 1300 pages long; the Global Agreement of Trade and Tariffs (GATT) which when ratified became the United Nations Treaty called World Trade Organization (WTO), that treaty took over 22,000 pages.
All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption
of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this
Constitution, as under the Confederation.
Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in
Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made,
or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the
supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be
bound thereby, any
Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
ALL TREATIES SHALL BE THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND
Precedent has already been set as to whether or not Treaties supersede our Constitution, look up the ruling of Judge Bolt concerning Indian Fishing Rights as set up in a Treaty. [The synonym of the word “notwithstanding” according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary: despite, regardless of]
Amendment 2 the of Constitution
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to
the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed.
Second Amendment is only 27 words; that’s all! It has 4 statements separated by
3 commas. This isn’t rocket science.]
The United Nations is still working on finalizing their Small Arms Trade Treaty, while the preamble sounds nice and covers the touchy feely issues, preambles are non-binding. The wording following the preamble is how the Second Amendment will be taken away because the SMALL ARMS TREATY of the United Nations would effectively supersede, remove, void, our SECOND AMENDMENT.
Most people refuse to get off their asses and check out facts, to many people have also bought into the lie about Separation of Church and State being written in the FIRST AMENDMENT
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
[The First Amendment is 45 words long; that’s it! Nowhere in those 45 words is
there the statement Separation of Church and State.]
"I am sending you out
like sheep among wolves
Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves."
This would require most of the people to turn off the T.V.; yes, they would have to turn off the football, basketball and baseball games and actually think. Nowhere in that statement does it say to play the part of a fool: the Wolves on Wall Street have destroyed pension plans, gambled as speculators and robbed your grandchild’s future through indebtedness (they have eaten your lunch-you've been taken to the cleaners).
