I haven’t posted anything in a while and my goal was to post pretty regularly. Then the slacker quality in me kicked in and I lost my desire. But, now I’m back. Mostly pushed by the little counter that shows that NO ONE has been to my blog in months. So just out of sheer curiousity I am going to post something and see if that changes. I am totally driven by the counter on this post.
We took the family to Washington DC which was a great experience for the kids and for me. I was awestruck by the respect demanded by the awesome heritage we have in America. As I read the stories about our founding fathers and how they fought for our freedom, I was awestruck at how the politicians today ARE COMPLETELY CLUELESS.
The things our politicians fight for today would have earned them a bullet in the head back in the days of George Washington. Can you imagine going back and explaining to Thomas Jefferson as he was writing the Contstitution and tell him he’d better put something in there that defines marriage as for a man and a woman only? There’s a slight chance he left it out on purpose but I’m guessing never crossed his mind because it was totally incomprehesible to him. What about spending $315 million on a bridge to nowhere and for one state? Money going to sex studies at a university?
Most people work the first 3 to 6 months out of the year to pay their taxes. I heard the other day that for every $1 the government spends they borrow .40. Our government is a big, fat overpaid lazy bum.
When we were in DC on July 4th we went to the National Archives and heard the reading of the Declaration of Independence. I highly recommend you go read this great document at http://www.constitution.org/usdeclar.htm . Read it and tell me if it isn’t a document telling us to stand up RIGHT NOW!! What’s it going to take for people to get mad and stand up? We are back to the days of taxation without representation.
