The Stimulus Package In My Husband's Words

My darling husband wrote something the other day at one of the on-line motorcycle forums we belong to (MyGreatRides.Com). The subject of the phony stimulus package came up in one of their General Posts. I wanted to share this with y'all today:

---

If you closely examine where most of this 'stimulus' money is going, that by the way we are borrowing from foreign countries, it's easy to see that it's mostly payoff money for the votes that were delivered by Democrat special interest groups. Both main political parties have become so corrupt in their quest for power that they trample on the Constitution as if it were a doormat.

The 10th amendment disallows most federal law that has been passed over the last 50 years. The 10th amendment states; "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

This is a simple statement to understand. Only the powers specifically stated in the Constitution are given to the federal government and all other powers are reserved for the individual states and the people. The federal government has become an overbearing monster that swallows up our personal treasure, involves us in illegal conflicts and erodes away our personal God- given liberties in the name of fairness. We the people have allowed this to happen because of our indifference to the rule of law and our sudden embracing of democracy, also known as mob rule. We are a republic, where all are supposed to be treated equally under the law, regardless of our social status. We are now becoming a democracy where the rule of the majority can quickly strip us of our fortunes, our rights and our dignity.

This is why we now vote Libertarian.

... and you probably thought I only married Hubby because of the uniform ... HA!! :o)

For The Funny Bone:

Japanese banks have been hit almost as hard as American banks:
The Origami Bank has folded, and we hear the Sumo Bank has gone belly-up too. Bonsai Bank plans to cut some of its branches. Karoke Bank is for sale and is going for a song. Meanwhile, staff at Karate Bank got the chop, and analysts report there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank, where workers fear they may get a raw deal.

Sweet picture. Your Man looks like he's older than just arriving from boot camp though. Usually the men look like they are 16 and skinny little things... yours looks like his top ranking aleady! :)

Linda said...

AMEN!!! I totally agree..btw, when are the people going to wake up and take AMERICA back? Do you like Glenn Beck? WE LOVE HIM!! Blessings

Iva said...

I had to read this to my man beast. We agree whole-heartedly. And I just might start voting libertarian, too. The corruption is atrocious and disgusting.

Good honest assessment of our situation, Steve. Japanese Banks very punny.

ChaCha Janeen ~ Thanks for the compliments on the photo. Nah, Steve was a chunky 18 year old. The Army boot camp slimmed him down to a lithe 145 lbs (or somewhere in that neighborhood). It's all the joggin' in army boots. Horrah!

Linda ~ We watch Glenn Beck too. He's so accurate that he scares me sometimes and I have to go calm down. [lol]

Iva ~ Yes, it is atrocious. Remember, we didn't leave the Dem/Rep parties, they left us!

Thanks Carey, I'll tell Steve what you said. He's got a good head on his shoulders.

Thanks y'all for stopping by today! ♥ ∞

Your husband sounds like a highly intelligent person, seeing as how I agree with everything he said ;)
