Big Headed Politicans

Actually making a trip to this nation's Capitol is an awesome experience when you realize what you are seeing. This city is the display of the history of this great nation and the memorials, museums, monuments and many massive displays of architecture that sometimes leave you speechless. Over time it seems like our political elites have adopted an attitude that they OWN all of that real estate and associated trappings.

The same applies to the national parks, coastal areas and other assets of the United States of America. What they have totally lost sight of, and it is quite apparent as we watch both the sequester and the present shutdown, is that in their twisted minds they own that property and hold the keys to it but they do not. I want to set the record straight. We own that - ALL OF IT. We own the People's House where Obama thinks he can make his royal decrees. I'm here to tell you Barack Hussein Obama you and your family are but temporary tenants.

My point is this. You have no right to deny access to the tax payers of this nation to anything that we own. That is within reason for security purposes but that may qualify as the ONLY reason. For those of you who want to sit quietly by while people like Obama and his minions steam roll you then have at it. Be a sheeple and follow blindly along.

This is total insanity when Obama thinks he can get his way by making any budgetary decisions painful on the American people. That is about as low and mean spirited as I have ever see any politician stoop and I've seen many over the decades. He did it during the start of sequestration and he's at it again. He's as small as small can get.

Get this straight Mr. President. We own this nation, not you. That applies to every self-serving professional pick pocket inhabiting this nation's Capitol and there are more than a truck load of those critters. We OWN this country. You are but temporary caretakers and we're fed up with your inability to lead us fiscally, morally and in accordance with the US Constitution. We are reaching a critical point in our nation's history. They know that and you better believe that they know that.

All this political theater is due to the fact that they know they have driven this nation fiscally into the ground by stupidity. If it sounds like I'm pissed you're damned right I am. They are closing down memorials, parks and sporting events who don't take one red cent from the US Treasury - not one skinny penny. What right does Obama have to do that other than to display just how damned petty he is? The opposite is happening when Obama sends his paid goons out to post barricades and deny access using manpower to things that WE own not them.

Tell me how any of what I just pointed out is justified by this administration?

What is going on his pure political sickness. It's Shutdown Theater with Obama, Reid and Pelosi refusing to negotiate. Obama keeps saying he is willing to negotiate and out of the other side of his mouth says he won't negotiate. This sick ploy is designed to make the American people hurt. I hope the American people realize what the hell is happening and why. This is all about political power and has nothing to do with those of us who pay this nation's bills. We're called tax payers and not subjects.

The Democrats are playing this out for all it's worth in case you have failed to notice that too. They want you to feel the pain so that you will let them keep their boot heels on our throats. The media is playing right into their hands and has been so compromised that it's sickening. Rather than look out for the common man they seem intent on favoring anyone who will favor them. They have lost their way entirely. I just wrote an article about Harry Reid. He is a major obstacle to the efficient running of this country. He tells Obama what to do, when to do it and Obama does it. The problem is that he more and more gets caught saying absurd things while the cameras are still rolling. With Harry it is definitely all about power and the tax payer be damned.

The Culprits

Questions need to start being asked by tax payers. Serious questions need to be asked by all the citizens of this country. How are you in good conscience ceding your liberties and freedoms to such a pack of jackals that can't run a lemonade stand much less the United States of America? Why are we sitting back allow them to pour good money after bad on our behalf? It's insane to let it even continue. We keep sending the same idiots back to do more damage and expecting a different result? It's not going to happen that way. They are the very ones who have screwed the pooch so how do you expect them to fix the monster they themselves created?

Now we're being held hostage. The game is make the people who actually own it all and pay all the bills suffer through theater after theater until the elitist's demands are met. Obama just threatened to veto any measure that would open the national parks, monuments and the Capitol itself during his latest pouting session. Unless you raise your voice you are no more than a pawn of these puppet masters. Don't you understand that if these type of people engineer systems like Obamacare that the next time something like this happens they will control your access to health care and your doctor. Are you going to stand for that? Something to seriously think about and start asking questions.

A QUOTE FROM BARACK OBAMA TODAY: “In a government shutdown, Social Security checks still go out on time. In an economic shutdown — if we don’t raise the debt ceiling — they don’t go out on time,” he said. “In a government shutdown, disability benefits still arrive on time. In an economic shutdown, they don’t.”

Where the hell is our money Obama?

"Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

Jim- Sadly, none of this was talked about on Honey Boo Boo or any of the reality shows. Dancing with the stars didn't even mention the government shutdown. So I'm betting you that over 50% of our citizens are not even aware this is going on today.

Of course they are cherry picking what gets shut down. Now that Harry is sure all of this will be blamed on the Republicans he wants it to be as painful as possible. Obama is heavily involved in this cherry picking operation, but he had to be told about World War II. He missed this part of history in school.

Greg is correct, they all need a good spanking and be sent to bed without their dinner. Or better yet, we need to tell them if they can't get this fixed they need to go home and we will replace them with people willing to do the job.

Your article is right on target. President Obama wants to dictate health policy and penalize those who don't buy into this disastrous and inane insurance "policy". Well, enough is enough. I don't want untlimited government, especially interfering and telling me that it is MANDATORY. Obamacare will be a socioeconomic disaster that will further bankrupt the nation. However, President Obama refuses to acknowledge THIS whatsoever. Many people who voted for him are living to REGRET their actions!

Greg, as much as Boehner talked about getting rid of the Obamacare subsides for federal employees, they found some emails he has written to Harry Reid about what they need to do to keep this in place.

When will more citizens realize this whole thing is just a big show to please the crowd of tax paying citizens who are screaming for action?

The list of elected representatives who are not "owned" by a lobbyist or corporation would be a very short list. Term limits would go far toward ending this cycle.

In the game of politics, one of the teams scored a government shutdown. We the fans argue over who gets credit. By the way, wikipedia has a fairly good page on the history of government shutdowns.

I would like to see the 14th Amendment amended to include this phrase...

"A person (legal person and naturalized person)defined under the Constitution as a biological thinking and breathing entity period."

Putting 150 years worth of corporate manipulation, control and law once and for all time, as second to the individual. And more to the point as servant to the People.

Arthur I'm not sure what your haranguing of corporations has to do with this Hub.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 3 years ago from Rural Arizona

Jim - I could be wrong, but I think Arthur is referring to the known fact that many corporations have been able to buy politicians and tax loopholes by using lobbyists. They buy tax loopholes that benefit only them, and then have the balls to brag about record profits. Using these bought and paid for politicians, they are able to have laws written, or changed, that again only benefit themselves.

Our current batch of elected representatives really could care less about "We the People." They rely on the party loyal, uneducated and uniformed voters, to keep them in their cushy jobs, and lord knows we have an ample supply of those folks.

Putting a bounty on lobbyists would go far toward cleaning up the mess in Washington.

It's very simple.

New Deal legislation that was repealed has opened the door to the latest economic meltdown. The Glass-Steagal Act keep investment banking separate from regular banking effectively protecting retirements from being lost.

Retirements were lost, and the term "too big to fail" has permeated our consciousness.

Corporations are making record profits while the rest of us are in hot water.

But, that is not enough... corporations are the only ones who will benefit if the Healthcare Act fails to function.

If the term "legal person" under it's current definition ever becomes a part of the Constitution, then eventually We the People will become property of the corporation.

The standoff in congress is corporate driven.

Arthur - Have you happened to notice that the way things are going you have now become "the property of " the federal government? Surely that hasn't escaped your notice. Little by little all your freedoms and liberties are being whittled away. That should get anyone's attention but what they have many people looking at are "shiny objects" and using straw man arguments. That diverts attention and they know it.

It's pretty ironic, Jim, that the Statue of Liberty is one of the attractions to both citizens and foreign visitors that has been shut down. I s'pose that's because liberty is one of the freedoms we no longer enjoy under this administration.

Its time to get Obama out of office. Either impeach him or arrest Him for being a traitor.

Like I have always said, I am not ah Obama fan, never have been. But why does everybody want to blame him. He is not the only idiot in office. It is everyone in office that is screwing up this country of OURS. My opinion, Greg.

Right on Frog. Everything the federal government owns is owned beneficially on behalf of the People, just like securities in a mutual fund are owned by the mutual fund company, but owned on behalf of the fund's investors. The investors make the decisions to buy and sell shares of the fund, not the mutual fund company. This is why things like the drilling moratorium on federal land and US coastal waters are so upsetting. With medium grade gas around $4.00 per gallon, we can't boost supply enough to get the price down relying on State and private land drilling alone. Most of the US oil and natural gas reserves sit under federally owned land and water. And since the federal government owns this land beneficially on behalf of the People, federal lease sales and drilling should resume. It's as you say "small" to hold America hostage to ultra-high energy prices just so Democrats can get campaign cash from radical environmentalists. Federal priorities are so screwed up, and so many of the people in DC have been there so long that they have tunnel vision, that it makes me believe our most critical economic problems will never be solved.

Frog Prince, Totally agree with your last premise. President Obama is unaccountable and refuses to take responsibility for his actions. He is also anti-achievement and anti-success. He wants equal income distribution. He is creating a culture of failure in addition to an owe me, help help me, and rescue me culture.

He is a prevaricator of the highest order. He has an underlying socialist and communist agenda for this country. Government is getting larger and more intrusive in our lives. Obama"care" is an example of this socialist/communistic "form" of health insurance. Yes, I am angry and I SEE him for WHAT he really is. He is an incompetent mistake and an immature narcissist. I am a Liberal but President Obama is leaving an extremely nauseous taste in my mouth. Of course, he loves to blame others-that is what INCOMPETENTS do. He is NOT a man, let alone a President. He is the most disastrous joke around, analogous to a noisome fungus!

People actually gasp when I tell them I have some liberal views myself. But I can assure you that I have NOT ONE progressive view. Obama is way over there on the progressive left and I mean way over there. I saw that when I started researching him in 2008.

Let's be clear here.

The Progressive Movement came in response to the Gilded Age, when wealth in America took unprecedented leaps and work conditions for labor took unprecedented risks along with major abuses.

The Ludlow Incident in Colorado in 1914 was a clear representation of the need for such change.

All I know is that Corporate America is the only group who has benefited from the recent economic downturn. Record profits against record low wages. The phrase "TOO BIG TO FAIL" is a new and disturbing catch phrase.

In the recent Supreme Court decision in Citizens United corporations were given the power of freedom of speech to continue their practice of manipulating the People against each other to maintain the status quo.

The business of the gun lobby is to feed this division with paranoia. While the only Government group who did not get major increases in funding after 9/11 was the ATF. Again, who is benefiting ...Corporate America.

I was watching the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He established a very clear picture of who is responsible for this shutdown. A law was passed, the law was constitutionally established, and conservatives don't give damn.

As for lobbies, in 1976 only 3% of all Congress became lobbyists, today that figure is 42% of the House and 50% of the Senate.

It was Reaganomics that made this possible, and Reaganomics that set the stage to repeal the New Deal in favor of Corporate America.

If that makes me a stone cold Progressive then so be it.

It was the Civil War that created the corporate leviathan that exists today. The creature that continues to make the government the heavy in conjunction with all that had been done to level the playing field between corporations and the individual.

Here's Lincoln on the subject:

http://www.dojgov.net/Liberty Watch.htm

"I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear.Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe...corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed."

I say amend the 14th Amendment to establish once and for all time that a person under the law is defined as a biological breathing and thinking entity only, and just the idea that it would be taken seriously will bring out the truth about who is really trying to screw up America will become painfully clear.
