Rick's Rant of the Day

A funny thing happened in the history of the United States of America, the government vastly outgrew its worth. The by the people, for the people, became a not so funny joke. I stopped believing in the government long ago, but now I have come to the realization that I HATE the government. Cases in point: Barry Bonds and Roger Clemmens. These two fellows are in trouble for lying to congress!!!!!! Lying to congress????????? One more time, lying to congress????? I would think (if the charges are even true) that congress, being LIARS that have no equal, would be amused at someone even trying to get one by them, but in reality are going to try and send them to prison????? I personally would be more upset at stepping on a cockroach than lying to congress, and I can assure you that I despise cockroaches. Where is the crime, what business did congress have questioning them in the first place, and this outrage that someone might lie to them is a crock. Congress acts like they are something to be respected, WRONG, maybe something to be feared. But what they don't realize is this: If I respect someone and see they need help or are in trouble, I'll be there for them without even being asked. If I fear someone and see they need help or are in trouble, I'll do nothing to help and might join in to help rid myself of them. The federal government needs to DOWNSIZE, get back issues that concern all of the citizens, and forget this notion that they are something special. THEY ARE NOT!!! PROFESSIONAL POLITICATIONS NEED TO BECOME EXTINCT!!!!! IF the federal government wants to know what's wrong with this country, they need to open their eyes, put on glasses if necessary, and take a long hard look in the mirror................................................................... Lying to congress, lying to congress, GIVE ME A BREAK.

Guest post by my Buddy Rick

Will we ever wake up in this Country??????

How many people are sick of political adds? How many people truly subscribe to everything one political party stands for? How many people have decided that the issues that get trotted out every 2 years are always the same, and the people telling us that they want to fix them, are the same ones who have done nothing except pad their own pockets and the pockets of their friends (people that bribed them).
An extremely wise person once told me that anyone can complain, but they were only interested into listening to solutions.
So here we go:
1: Anyone stating lies, half truths, deception, etc., in a political add will be fined at least $1,000,000 and no longer be allowed to run for public office for life. (Life means life, no exceptions!)

2: No one can run an add for a canidate unless the canidate signs off on it.

3: Any add before it airs for the general public, must be listened to by the canidate for 8 hours in a row, if they still want to air the add, no more than 2 times a day, for 7 days. Yes, that means that the add CANNOT be aired more than 14 times.

4: Term limits for all so called public servents, with no benefits after leaving office.

5: Public servants cannot vote theirselves pay increases, it is on the ballot every 4 years and voted on by the public.

6: No more riders on bills, each bill stands on its own, all bills are made public.

7: The Federal government must downsize, if the issue does not apply to all United States Citizens, then the federal gov't has no business sticking its nose into it.

8: All Congressmen and Senators must abolish their pension plan, put that money into social security, and be in social security like everyone else. People that did not pay into social security cannot draw social security.
