Sunday Morning Cap & Tax 8 - That Bitter Taste Is Cumbersome

The 8 cap-and-tax Republican turncoats again are:

Bono Mack (CA) (202) 225-5330
Castle (DE) (202) 225-4165
Kirk (IL) (202... (And he’s seriously considering running for Senate!)
Lance (NJ) (202) 225-5361
LoBiondo (NJ) (202) 225-6572

That Bitter Taste is Cumbersome.

Our Current Congress is becoming CUMBERSOME to the American People. I am really looking forward to 2 November 2o10 Elections. There were at least 44 Democrats who voted against this Economy Killer.

Reich said that while the official number for unemployment was 8%, it did not include people who had become discouraged and stopped looking for work or those working part time who wanted to work full time. The real unemployment number was really close to 14%. Rigorous Economic Recovery by Mid-2010, Robert Reich Tells National Council on Aging.

Daniel Hannan spoke of the European Union shifting centralized power to Brussels. Let me put it another way. The epithets now being attached to our MPs – “on the gravy train”, “out of touch”, “parasites”, “won’t listen” – are those that, for years, have been hurled at MEPs. Britain’s political culture is being Continentalised. I say this in no jingoistic spirit. Like most Euro-skeptics, I love Europe. I speak French and Spanish, and have lived and worked all over the Continent. It’s precisely because I admire other countries that I value their independence and cheer their patriotism. This isn’t about Europe; it’s about democracy. How can we restore purpose to the ballot box when most of our laws come from foreign officials whom we don’t elect? How can we decentralize power in Britain while centralizing it in Brussels?

What does our current Congress have in common with the current centralized European Union government in Brussels (Hint: Our Congress is trying to centralize power too but in D.C.). They both have become CUMBERSOME to the people they are supposed to be representing. I think the protesting in Iran has pretty much drove home the point, how they feel about their present government. These governments are building their own opposition (they are throwing the stones - irresponsible legislation, that is building up the wall - voter backlash in 2010) . There are 300 million American citizens versus how many U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives? 36 U.S. Senators and 435 U.S Representative's seats coming open in 2010. The population of Iran according to the C.I.A. World factbook for Iran 66,429,284. Eventually the Iranian people will have the government-representation they want, there are more of them than the Regime. The Regime that just brought about the largest protest in recent Iranian history. Conservatives score wins in EU parliament voting read more here.
