Too Big

November may be a most revealing and educational month. I am interested in how the "too big to be arrested, impeached and jailed" class will fare if they lose control.

Task Force Finds Personnel Entitlements “Unsustainable”
Observation Post columnist Tom Philpott interviewed Maj. Gen. Arnold L. Punaro, USMCR-Ret., chair of a five-member task force of the Defense Business Board that, in October, will recommend to Defense Secretary Robert Gates ways to reduce overhead costs in DoD.

Dear Senator,
Having read the above, I am so angry I could chew nails and spit rust! It is the absolute last straw!

You know what is "UNSUSTAINABLE"? It is having almost half the citizenry not paying any income taxes and, in fact, millions getting up to $8,000.00 "REFUNDS" on income taxes they DID NOT PAY! It is "UNSUSTAINABLE" that almost half of the citizenry is sucking on the public teat via countless vote buying scams, excuse me, social programs, run by Congress and have been doing so for generations, taught how by the preceding generation. It is "UNSUSTAINABLE" that American medical, penal and social services continue providing the care and feeding of upwards of 30,000,000 illegal aliens with thousands more coming every day due to Congress' failure to provide the very basic requirement of government, a secure border.

Providing and sustaining a military force is a Constitutional it...a copy is on file at the Library of Congress. I find none of the items listed in the paragraph above in that document as the Constitution DOES NOT PERMIT nor give license in any way for government to be a charitable organization! Quite the contrary!

The current Congress and several before it have woefully failed the American people, have feathered its nest and reneged on its promises to the detriment of the working man and the annuitant who paid into Social Security (A big SOCIALIST mistake) and the retired military person who served with honor and earned a retirement...many didn't, you know. Many are buried on foreign soil where they fell. Many, many more are buried in national cemeteries across the nation. They aren't drawing retirement benefits or availing themselves of Tri Care. But Congress, Congress bestows upon itself undue raises, premium health care and a retirement plan envied by royalty. That, sir, is "UNSUSTAINABLE". Congress usurps medical care in the nation, bails out Wall Street, banks and automobile manufacturers (while slipping the fid to the investors) and pays obscene bonuses to the managers of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae based on "creative accounting". That, sir, is "UNSUSTAINABLE". Electioneering by stealing millions in public funds via rider legislation totally unrelated to the base legislation to "bring home the bacon" and ensure reelection is "UNSUSTAINABLE". In short, Congress seems to have been very, very busy doing everything the Constitution forbids and precious little of what it requires. That, sir, is absolutely "UNSUSTAINABLE".

To find military personnel entitlements unsustainable in the face of the sacrifices made in the past and being made at this very moment and the promises given then and now to secure the personnel to make those sacrifices is, for lack of a stronger word, egregious. To even consider taxing prostheses and medical equipment for wounded warriors is so contemptible and nauseating as to make even a buzzard puke. Having defied the Constitution, the tax payer and the will of the people, my only hope is that, when Congress finishes digging this hole, they fall out of the other side of the earth and into outer space having defied the law of gravity as well. I think Congress can expect a large crowd waving them goodbye in November.

Stop Paying Them

We are paying Congress and the Administration to solve problems like the porous border and a lousy economy. Let's stop paying them until they solve the problems and hire new ones if they can't. They have two months to shape up or be shipped out.

Most Damning Reason

The most damning reason for impeaching Obama, the AG, and all of Congress is that they have, through malfeasance or intention, failed to meet the most basic requirement of government and that is to protect its citizens from foreign threats to life, limb and property. Their negligence has made their oath of office a lie.

How Predictable...

The left has gone toilet-tongue on the predictable. I have little use for people with such a limited vocabulary. I guess that is why I dislike rap music. Liberals and Marxists sound to me like a rap garbage dump...I just can't bring myself to use the word song.

More Justice

Recent rulings indicate that America would have more justice with less judges.

Mediocre Orchestra

I have no use for the race hustlers as they stand mute on slavery in Somalia that continues TO THIS VERY HOUR and the National Organization of Women for their deafening silence starting with Clinton's poor treatment of women and the continuing, egregious assault on womanhood in the Middle East. They are tinkling bells and sounding brass unfit for even a mediocre orchestra.

Enforcing Federal Law

I find it odd that the judicial branch can stop AZ from enforcing federal law, but, even with all the checks and balances built into our republic, that branch refuses to require the administration to enforce its own law. Seems to me like the SCOTUS could give the Justice Department 30 days to comply or rule that AZ can do as they see fit.
