Are you off work Columbus Day?

If you're not off, or don't have today as a paid holiday, don't you resent that federal government employees do & maybe state & local gov't employees? Aren't you insulted & offended that YOU'RE funding their day off? You should be. I'm shocked that those elected to US Congress who are from the 45+ states that don't border on Maryland haven't done something about this, haven't sat there & said, there's no reason federal gov't employees should have job security or the benefits they have when everyone else doesn't have them & end it.

U.S. Had $1.3 Trillion Deficit in Fiscal 2011

By COREY BOLES

WASHINGTON—The federal government recorded a $1.3 trillion budget deficit in fiscal 2011, the same as the previous fiscal year, the Congressional Budget Office said Friday.

In its monthly assessment of the government's finances, the nonpartisan congressional scorekeeper said the $1.3 trillion deficit was equivalent to 8.6% of gross domestic product, down from 8.9% in fiscal 2010 but still the third-highest percentage of GDP recorded since 1945.

Federal & Local Law Enforcement Agencies Try to Take Family Motel from Innocent Owners

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcQlF-zDEL0

Imagine you own a million-dollar piece of property free and clear, but then the federal government and local law enforcement agents announce that they are going to take it from you, not compensate you one dime, and then use the money they get from selling your land to pad their budgets—all this even though you have never so much as been accused of a crime, let alone convicted of one.

Vets Call For Resignations, Impeachments In Washington

Back quite a few years ago when the American people were suffering under a despot called King George III they drew up a list of his offenses and told him they were not going to allow his government by fiat to be "destructive" any longer.

In the Declaration of Independence, they cited such problems as his refusal to allow beneficial and necessary laws, his obstruction of justice by manipulating the judiciary, his erection of "a multitude of new offices," his disruption of trade and his preventing the laws adopted by local legislatures from addressing problems.

Unite as individuals to make change as a Nation

Our government is bought. We have allowed ourselves to be silent for far too long. Unless you have a lobbyist, your opinion has become to mean jack shit. No more, though. It is time to unite as individuals - As one movement, with one goal... to be heard.

How do we do this? The first step is to get money out of politics. We need to make it a priority to get a constitutional amendment passed banning all financial contributions to political campaigns. If congress does not pass this legislation, then we send their asses home and replace them with people that will.

Ron Paul should speak to the Occupy Wall Street protestors

Just an idea. That kind of spontaneous visit to address the protestors and encourage them, rail against big banks, rail against big government and rail against corporatism could get a lot of news coverage and win some more supporters. Specifically more "Blue Republicans.

Tennessee and National Action Alert!

Smart meters being installed on homes without consent. In the middle of the Summer without notification the local electric company installed a "smart meter" on our home. We have owned the home for 8 years now and during the Summer months never paid more than $165.00-220.00 for utilities (electric and water) due to conservation and the fact that even though it is a standard split foyer home both children have moved out, one to school and the other to work.
