These Senators and Representatives Have Mastered the Art Of Word Parsing

I have been reading some of the responses callers are getting from their Senators and Representatives on Campaign for Liberty.

It's amazing how they make it sound like they oppose the bailout, but in actuality the will more than likely be voting for it.

Here's just one example:

"Rep. Bill Sali (R- ID - 1st Dist.) indents to vote AGAINST any proposed bill that will give a “blank check” to any company and further push Americans in debt. Thank you Congressman Sali!"

(I believe the above statement has a typo probably meant intends instead of indents.)

As you can see this caller believes Sali is going to vote against the bailout. However, that's not what he said at all. He said he was opposed to giving any company a blank check. So if the bill has restrictions on how the $700B is spent will he still oppose it...I think not.

I've always said politicians don't lie, it's that the people don't listen to what they are really saying. Just like this caller, he heard what he wanted to hear, not what was really said. People need to do more critical listening in my opinion, because most of these elected officials are attorneys and their stock and trade are "words." and how those words can be twisted to give certain impressions.

If I were this caller, I would asked: do you mean that Sali opposes the bailout in any form or just the part pertaining to blank checks? And will he vote against it no matter what's in the final bill?

From Harry Reid

" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said lawmakers would stay in Washington past Friday's planned recess for November campaigning.

"We're going to get this done and stay in session as long as it takes to get it done," Reid said.

I don't let them tell me anything

I tell them And I use very precise language. DO NOT vote for any of my money to be used by anyone period. I want no bill of any kind. Let the market eat the idiots. It needs purged. Give the American people another option do what the Constitution says Congress should coin money backed by gold and siver or made out of gold and silver so I can protect the fruits of my labor with my right to bare arms. Policemen do not protect anyone they fill out and report crimes. I am the only one that can protect my property.

RighT! so Our messages must be worded accordingly

In Christ,
Dave

Exactly

That's why people keep voting these morons back into office. The people don't listen to what they are being told by these politicians...because believe it or not they are telling you the truth.

It all depends on "what the meaning of is, is."
