The people have spoken... yet again

I steer clear of posting about most things political, or at least I think I do. Sometimes it's better that way. But I just couldn't resist this time.

You see, there's nothing that gets my ire up (or at least very few things) like big-wig politicians who think they know better than the people who put them into office in the first place.

That's right buddy (or ms. so-and-so), without me you wouldn't have that nice cush job. And far too many of you have lost sight of that fact.

So don't get too comfortable in that plush office with all the accompanying perks. Because if you don't listen to the people, you're so out of there.

And you might want to re-think that "not representative of the people" statement given to the drive-by media... because unemployment can be a hard, cold fact. And the people have their eye on you. We're not so easily fooled.

That's one of the things that makes our country great: Government of the people, by the people, for the people. It's up to us to make sure that doesn't change. As much as it is within our power to do so.

DISCLAIMER: Honestly, I don't hate these people. They just really bug me sometimes.

EDIT: Check out this proposed amendment by Joe Wilson. Regardless of how you feel about the whole health care issue, I think many people would support this amendment 100%. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. That's my nugget of wisdom for the day ;)

Hear! Hear!

Our representatives and senators are fairly conservative, so they are planning to vote against Obamacare. Thank goodness!

Joe Wilson has kind of come out of nowhere, hasn't he? But I'm proud to say that he comes from the state next to mine.

Oh, and I have to agree with Mrs. Darling about the Proverbial Straw. You really need to update that.
