If you had to go to your doctor last week with some kind of mysterious itchy rash and if your doctor told you that you are allergic to liars, horse thieves, career con artists and ding-bat-and-pony shows you might want to avoid the air emanating form the White Palace in Washington D.C.
Me, I just stock up on products for nausea, sigh a lot, and ponder how good, hard-working patriotic Americans got ourselves into this mess.
We have allowed the self-serving, greedy gluttons in D.C. to muddy our once golden world reputation; bankrupt our once gold-filled coffers; and lie to us so regularly and charmingly we now puzzle over why we can't sleep and why we seem to be paying five times as much for a 13 oz. "pound" of coffee.
It takes two to make a criminal -- the criminal and the one against whom the crime is committed.
It takes a town to elect and endure a morally bankrupt mayor, and it takes an entire nation of citizens to fiddle while their blotted federal government feeds on the blood of its citizens and rots from within.
We have met the enemy and it is us.
Long self-hypnotized with our love of bigger and better homes; newer, faster, and flashier automobiles; and forever struggling to keep up with the Joneses next door, we suddenly find ourselves unable to pay the piper for our ridiculousness so we turn to Big Daddy in D.C. and whimper "Save us!"
We have forgotten the least governed are the best governed.
We have forgotten the unwritten law of our grandparents: If a man won't work neither shall he eat ... or have servants and chauffeurs."
We have forgotten the sacred kingdom within ourselves that refuses to be defined by our toys and titles and most of all we have forgotten we gave the D.C. horse thieves our prized white stallion: Our constitutional right to life without government asininity and control.
I can't speak for you but as disgusted as I am I believe we, the descendants of those who spun and made do-able the once grand Lady called American ... I believe we have what it will take to invest in rodent removal, march on Washington, kick the liars, horse thieves, career con artists and the ding-bat-and-pony shows to the curb, disinfect the White House ... and start all over again shouting: "The primary purpose of the federal government is to protect us, our property, and our rights! Said purpose does not include telling us how much mashed potatoes we can eat, or how to raise our children on what is left from our work-efforts after paying for a manicure for the White House dog!
We don't need federal employees who make more money than our soldiers; live in better homes than our school teachers; eat caviar while we eat hot dogs; have the best medical care in the world while we can't afford a bottle of baby aspirins for our little Johnny's fever!
We are taking possession of your limousines; shutting off the air conditioning in your dog's house, and canceling your insane retirement perks and benefits. And we are going to write a bill and make it a crime for you to ever hold public office again!
Here. You can have my week-old loaf of bread. You're gonna need it."
