The Land Of Milk And Honey?

America, the land of "Milk and Honey" is fast becoming the land of "Greed and Corruption". You can not go one day without hearing about some politician doing something illegal or under-handed. The majority of them think they are entitled and the laws that we have to obey, does not apply to them.

It seems as though nothing is above board anymore, if they want a certain bill to pass that they know will fail, they simply hide it inside another bill with hopes that no one will see it. What ever happened to being Honest and Forthright?

We are sitting on the side lines while they control the game, these people have sold us out and we are in for a big fall. Freedom to me, is a precious thing, something we should all cherish and desperately hold on to, but I really believe we are in danger of loosing that most precious commodity. Can you imagine what it would be like to be told where and when you can go somewhere, or for that matter , if, you can go somewhere. Just the thought of having to ask the Government permission should make you stand up and take note.

Our government is getting bigger and the private sector is getting smaller, when government gets so big and becomes the largest employer then we are headed down the wrong path. People will become so dependent on "Big Government" that they will have no choice but to do as they are told. This is the path we are being led down, like Lambs to a slaughter, and the end result is going to be frightening.

Our dollar has been devalued, prices are going through the roof and there will probably be a serious food supply shortage. You and I are the only people who can stop this, but we must stop sitting idly by while these events unfold. When that happens it may be too late to recover!

I know all of you are proud to be an American and to live in this free society where you can come and go as you please. I also know how terrible it would be if we lost those privileges! I don't pretend to have the answers, but I do know if you have employees who are lying, cheating, stealing and fornicating, you fire them and replace them with those who don't. Until we get back to demanding Honesty and Integrity from our elected officials, then this is what we can look forward to. The decision is yours!


Street Talk

These issues go far beyond left and right issues, liberal or conservative. In fact those terms don't even mean what they once did. I am repulsed to be considered any of those twisted terms. It's really about the ultra-rich and the working-class. The politically connected, and those that aren't. I'm not talking about those making $250k, or $1M or even $5M. The ones who have the power, the one's that are telling our so-called "representatives", what to do on their behalf, to the detriment of the rest of us, are the worlds oligarchs, the corporate billionaires and the central bankers around the world.
