Bloviating Zeppelin: Three Articles The Politicians (And You) Need To Read

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Three Articles The Politicians (And You) Need To Read

Not only the Democrats, but the Republicans are about to pay a price for not listening to the American electorate.

Not the vocal, visible minority; no.

I mean the persons Who Pay The Bills.

You and I.



WASHINGTON, D.C. - House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement today on the "security" agenda offered by Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Harry Reid (D-NV):

"The Democrats' years of negligence in addressing the real safety and security needs of the American people provide a very clear choice between Republicans and Democrats on security issues.

"While Democrats have openly advocated cutting and running from our efforts to support democracy in Iraq, Republicans continue to build upon our strong record on national security by funding our troops fighting terror around the world and supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

"While Democrats seem more interested in protecting the rights of terrorists than the American people, Republicans passed the PATRIOT Act to give law enforcement the tools necessary to combat terrorism, protect our citizens, and secure our communities.

"While Democrats focus more on protecting the rights of illegal immigrants than enforcing our immigration laws, Republicans have voted to secure our borders, give law enforcement new tools to enforce our immigration laws, and help prevent terrorist and criminal aliens from moving freely throughout our society.

"The Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, opposed the Patriot Act, opposed REAL ID legislation, and opposed efforts to strengthen and secure our borders. And they remain unable and unwilling to articulate a cohesive strategy for supporting our troops and winning the War on Terror.

"When it comes to national security, their answer is the same as it is for everything else: no. A media stunt will not eclipse their record of obfuscation and neglect on national and border security."

And while Democrats dithered and try to Groupify and be oh, so noble about wanting to protect the illegals... the Republicans have done exactly *what* in Congress to help close the borders? Done exactly *what* when informed that the Executive has no more resources for the War on Terrorism? And then pack oodles of Pork into pet projects and dare to claim that there is no more money left for defending the nation or hunting down terrorists?

Although the Democrats have been a negative force, the Republicans have been a negligent force and has sought to denigrate an active Executive that has exercised his power only a bit below that of FDR, Truman and Eisenhower.

This is not about 'roving wiretaps'.
This is not about 'Real ID'.
And I haven't seen one bill seriously proposed on the Floor of either House for a VOTE that would address closing the borders.
And then don't get me started on the mess that they want to CONTINUE in New Orleans to repair a sinking city!

Mr. Boehner I have yet to hear you say one word about what Congress will do to actively shut down the supply of goods to terrorists. One single word. That is entirely under CONGRESSIONAL control. You have the Power that We The People have vested in you and you have abdicated your responsibility to PROTECT the American people and defeat her enemies.

The entire Nation is, indeed, watching Congress, Mr. Boehner.

And you are inviting the People to well and truly be disgusted with the lot of you.

If you folks like hearings so much, why don't you hold hearings with the County Sheriffs along the border to hear of the incursions of Mexican Federal Military and Federal Police into the US? Or doesn't National Sovereignty mean anything to you?

Democrats are actively tearing at the social fabric of the Republic and what are the Republicans doing? Anything?

"Mr. Boehner, telephone call."
"Who is it?"
"Planet Earth, sir."
"Never heard of 'em. Put 'em on hold."

Thank you for clearly showing us that both parties are now the parties of ineffective Big Government, Mr. Boehner.

Now we know exactly WHY the majority of Americans don't vote. It is less destructive than encouraging you... but even so both parties have well, and truly, messed things up badly.

I know why so many like me no longer vote: you have lost our trust and we are utterly disgusted with you and the two party necropathy that people like you have brought in. Democrats and Republicans both.

The Evil of Two Lessers. Just a question of which makes things worse faster. But both want to make things worse.

AJ: again, you got it.. Blo: great post! I can't say much more, other than the truth: THe dems HAVE been negative and the conservatives negligent.. That is what I am frustrated about. While I am not 'with' Bush on the 'gatecrasher' program,I am with him on protecting this country. I think there are a few conservatives who are with us on this, but there are few BECAUSE as AJ said, I haven't seen anything done by the repubs. in Congress! It is so frustrating! I am beginning to really hate politics because of the front most of them put on, then change their tune once elected. I won't waste any more of your space here with a rant, sorry!
