Get up and get involved in government

Sen. Mary Landrieu, a Democrat from Louisiana, and Ben Nelson, Democrat senator from Nebraska, successfully extorted money from government official, Democrat Harry Reed.

Harry Reed paid a bribe to these two and several others in order to get them to vote for his healthcare bill. Mary got $300 million and Ben got more than that over the long term. The money that paid the bride was your money. Harry didn’t use money he earned, he stole it from us taxpayers. And they are bragging about it. “Look what I stole from the American people to give the people in my district. Look at me, aren’t I wonderful.”

On page 1,000-something of the 2,000-pous page bill Harry Reed placed a nice little Senate Rules Change in the bill that makes it out of order to change or amend the bill. This insane rule makes it impossible to change the healthcare bill. The Senate requires a supermajority to change the rules of the Senate. But who needs rules” Rules? They don’t want no rules. They don’t need no stinkin’ rules. What these senators did is illegal at every level of government and in the business world. But it’s OK for these dirtbags? Are you stinking kidding me? If they get away with this the United States of America is in serious trouble.

Today’s Americans are acting more and more like the Jewish people of Europe in the late 1930s. They just sat by, putting up no resistance as a government took everything from them.

More people will watch “The Biggest Loser” of TV than will contact elected representatives to tell them to quit wasting massive amounts of our money and taking away more of our freedoms.

In two years you will see a massive increase in your taxes. Sit there and watch. Be a slave to them. Do nothing.

P.S. – Bah, humbug, to happy holidays. I hope everyone had a merry Christmas.

And God bless America.
