I looked up the meaning of a “terrorist.” Here’s what I found: “A person, usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism; a person who terrorizes or frightens others; (formerly) a member of a political group aiming at the demoralization of the government by terror.”
To me, that sounds like our own congressmen. They should be arrested for terrorizing the public. Any elected official who thinks of himself should be put in jail.
They say that what they do is for the good of the people, but is it really? The people of this country should stand up together on the next election and put every one of these congressmen out of office and start fresh with new people.
Until this happens, we will be getting the same thing over and over. Remember these people are still getting their paychecks while hundreds of thousands of hardworking people who keep this country ticking are sitting at home and wondering if they can pay their bills or even buy food.
Ever since the tea party came into being, our Congress has fallen apart. Because of this small group, politicians have stalled our country from getting out of this recession and have caused infighting in Washington. Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can find common ground to stand on. What we need is to bring back the type of government we had in the ’60s.
Parallel between facism, tea party
Our tea-party representatives and their filthy rich financial backers wish us to think that by funding small portions of the government, they are looking out for us.
They have shut down the government to show that their hand controls our government. Their tactics are similar to the tactics used by the Nazi party to gain control over the democratic government of Germany in the 1930s.
Let us not forget that the Nazi party did not come into power as the result of a bloody military overthrow. The people democratically elected the Nazi candidates because those candidates ferociously campaigned on the platform that they could stabilize the large and growing national debt.
Next, the Nazi representatives, through their parliamentary form of government, refused to pass any laws until they were successful in gaining the majority. Then they elected Adolf Hitler to be chancellor.
Lastly, they voted to do away with the democratic government and to turn total control over to Hitler.
To be clear, I am not saying that the tea party’s ideology is the same as the Nazi ideology. However, the result of achieving a one-party system was the goal of the Nazis and is now the goal of the tea party.
This is called fascism, not a democracy.
Glacial melting and other thoughts
Some topics I’ve been pondering:
-- How did man contribute to the global warming that melted the North American glaciers centuries ago?
-- Why does Mexico impose jail sentences for individuals who illegally cross its borders?
-- Why do almost all mass murders occur in gun-free zones?
-- If Americans shouldn’t have assault weapons, why are we arming Syrian civilians with assault weapons?
-- Did the hostages in the Kenyan mall wish they were armed?
-- What if life does begin at conception? What did God mean in Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you and before you were born I consecrated you ...” ?
-- Was the person with the cure for cancer aborted?
n Why are there laws prohibiting worshipping God when the First Amendment of the Constitution strictly prohibits any such laws?
-- If George Bush was in bed with oil executives at $1.80 a gallon gas, who is President Obama with at $3.50 a gallon?
-- Senator Obama called President Bush unpatriotic and irresponsible for increasing our debt and raising the debt ceiling. Isn’t the same then true of Obama?
-- Why are President Obama’s principles so different from Senator Obama’s?
-- Would Senator Obama have voted for President Obama?
-- Shouldn’t environmentalists halt windmill construction since windmills are killing golden eagles?
-- Isn’t political correctness an affront to our freedom by prohibiting free speech and thought?
-- Why don’t we recall politicians who violate their oaths of office?
-- Why can’t politicians objectively discuss differences without resorting to lies and scare tactics?
-- Why is our country now so divisive? Is it by design?
Criminals don’t fear our justice system
This letter is in response to a column by Clarance Page, titled “Growing numb to mass violence.”
Page fails to recognize that by not holding people responsible for their actions, the left actually promotes violence.
Many years ago, I asked a former (Singapore) Army officer about his country’s incredible low crime rate (in a multiethnic and religious society). Easy, he said, the criminals are scared to death of the justice system.
Having worked in the criminal justice system a good part of my life, I know there is not much fear of the system here. Less criminal actions would mean less violence.
And by the way, the largest school massacre in U.S. history happened in Lansing, Mich., on May 18, 1927, when a school board member, using dynamite, killed 38.
Also, when was the last mass shooting at a cop bar (where cops go to drink) or at a gun show?
