Where are the checks and balances? Where is due diligence? Has congress become nothing more than a bunch of yes-men for the president?
Nancy Pelosi's quads must be burning from that brutal work-out she gave them during the President's address to congress. You'd think that woman's seat was on fire. I was embarrassed for her.
We didn't elect a president we crowned a king, our congress is filled with noblemen, with no term limits that tax the people as they please, using our money to give favors to their friends, and retain power.
I'm not talking about democrats or republicans- I'm talking about a Senate full of useless, pompous, egotistical individuals that grow fat on the labor of the people. Government has become a great leech, and each day it grows, literally, each and every day.
A friend of mine compared Obama to Princess Di, with the fascination of the media- his face gleaning countless books and magazine covers- but there's a difference, he has more power than Princess Di, and none of the heart.
It's a do as I say and not as I do president. Obama is above it all- we may not have the right to keep our homes at 71 degrees, but he has the right to keep the white house at a sweltering heat. There are no sacrifices coming from the ruling class, no we the laborers are expected to sacrifice so Washington can maintain its lavish lifestyle.
It's angering to watch other people spend money I earn. The hypocrisy of Washington is palpable. Congress will spend months interrogating professional baseball players about drugs (like we care) but won't think twice about cutting checks for billions to unscrupulous companies.
I guess there is a silver lining- at least we elected our king and our noblemen- so the country will be in the financial bondage it deserves.
